I think there should be a law that you must be the age of 18 to buy energy drinks in missouri,40% of the 5,156 calls to poison control centers are for energy drink exposure involving children under 6,if tots or teens drink these,they could experience a list of health problems including but not limited to seizures,heart palpitations,blood pressure elevation,strokes and even death.This is unacceptable to me as a parent,as of right now a child can buy these highly caffeinated drinks at your average business and/or in many energy drink machines sitting in front of your local grocery store.Im hoping i can get enough signatures from concerned parents and adults to reach our congressman so we can stop any more children from having unhealthy and dangerous or sometimes deadly effects from these drinks.
