Energy-Drinks And Teens

A Canadian Paediatric Society official says pediatricians are — quote — “a bit unaware” of how much caffeine there is in the
average energy drink and how popular they are with young people.

The American Academy of Pediatrics is firm that caffeine-rich energy drinks should never be consumed by children or adolescents.

Concerns have been re-ignited following last month’s death of a 16-year-old South Carolina boy who drank a large Mountain Dew, a latte from McDonald’s and an energy drink in a two-hour period.
