Too Much Caffeine? How Energy Drinks Cause Issues For Kids [Details]
A new study from the American Heart Association is being looked at. 40 % of the 5,156 calls made to poison centers are for “energy drink exposure” for children under age 6. You may ask, why are children under the age of 6 drinking energy drinks? Well, that’s because the parents don’t know how the children got access to the energy drinks. Most of the calls reported the children experiencing side affects such as, abnormal heart beat and seizures. The study will be presented at the American Heart Association’s Scientific Sessions this week.
