Energy drinks – death by sugar caffeine
Energy drinks are very popular, especially with teens and young adults who are in high school and college. According to research, 31 percent of teenagers say they drink energy drinks on a regular basis. That is about 7.6 million teens, 3 million more than three years ago. So according to this study, one million teens join in on the energy-drinking craze every year.
That's not the worst part about it though, also in recent studies, it has been discovered that these teens are downing several cans in a row just to get a bit of a caffeine/sugar rush. It is because of teens and young adults that the energy drink business is a multi-million dollar business, a business that grew a whopping eighty percent since just last year.
Sugar and Caffeine = Death
This all would not be so bad if energy drinks were not loaded with caffeine and sugar. But then again would teens really like it if it were not loaded with all that unhealthy junk? What happens is the kids are getting hooked on these caffeine drinks and go on a really harmful jolt and crash cycle. The drinks contain so many different ingredients that have caffeine that it is almost impossible to tell how much you can get out of one can.
It's like these kids grew up watching the things that their parents did and how society views what their parents did. Just because society says it is ok does not make it ok. So drinking major amounts of caffeine and sugar are not the best thing in the world for you. However, there is another, safer way for teens and even adults to get the energy they need without having those horrible side effects.
If everyone would drink natural energy drinks instead of the caffeine and sugar filled junk America's population would be so much healthier. Of course, it would mean going out of business for most, if not all, of the companies that make unhealthy energy drinks.
