I am concerned about the long term effects of energy drinks on our impressionable children. Just some of the harmful side effects include; Caffeine overdose (which can lead to a number of symptoms, including palpitations, high blood pressure, nausea and vomiting, convulsions and, in some cases, even death) type 2 diabetes – as high consumption of caffeine reduces insulin, sensitivity, late miscarriages, low birthweight and stillbirths in pregnant women/neurological and cardiovascular system effects in children and adolescents/sensation-seeking behaviour/use and dependence on other harmful substances/poor dental health/somewhat ironically, given their association with sportiness, obesity.
I urge the Government to make it illegal to sell these toxic drinks to children.
