Do you allow your kids to drink energy drinks? Beware!
I have read an article that reveals the research of energy drinks and its deadly effect especially to young children.
“More than 5,000 cases of people who got sick from energy drinks were reported to U.S. poison control centers between 2010 and 2013, and almost half of those cases were in children who did not realize what they were drinking, according to research that will be presented Monday (Nov. 17) at a meeting of the American Heart Association.”
According to the research, seizures, irregular heart rhythms or dangerously high blood pressure are just some of the serious side effects of energy drink to the body. With response to the kids issue on how they able to acquire the energy drinks, a phrase below is the answer.
“They didn’t go to a store and buy it; they found it in the refrigerator, or left by a parent or an older sibling,” said study co-author Dr. Steven Lipshultz, the pediatrician in chief at the Children’s Hospital of Michigan. “
Parents or guardians must be extra cautious when drinking the energy drinks at home as we know young minds are so curious to try or taste anything what adult has been doing and consuming. But folks, why bother to take energy drinks where in fact you know that typically they contain high level of sugars and caffeine? And other than that mentioned ingredients, they also contain like taurine, amino acid, etc.
