Stop the selling of harmful energy drinks to young children.

This petition had 9 supporters

We are hearing about more and more children becoming ill after consuming energy drinks which are easily obtainable from most of our local stores.  These high caffeine drinks are linked to an array of serious health issues such as heart palpitations, high blood pressure, cardiac arrest and sometimes death.  Underlying medical conditions exacerbate the effects.  

Some Countries such as Denmark, Turkey and Uraguay have banned the drinks.  Norway prohibits sales to children under 15 years of age.  We also need to take action with a similar age limit on sales as Norway or a complete ban.  They are not doing our children any good but they are marketed to look appealing to young people.
