Caffeine High Not Good for Students

Doctors in PEI have suggested that young people be banned from purchasing caffeinated energy drinks. There is some evidence that there are actual health risks associated with the drinks, which can be addictive.

One school has already banned them.

One source said they object to grocery stores placing the drinks in high traffic areas in hopes of getting youngsters to buy them. “It’s just like what cigarette companies did years ago,” he said. “They know if they get them hooked early they’ll have them hooked for life.”

What do you think? Is caffeine good for our youth?
