  • To clarify my stance on this subject – I agree that minors are at risk for over-consuming caffeine. That said, I highly encourage all parents to teach their children to read labels – read labels as if you’ve got a deadly nut allergy. Parents need to lead by example and read labels themselves, and not just for caffeine, but for sugars, fats, etc. My sole concern with most energy drink news stories is that by painting all energy drinks as dangerous, it breeds defiance (especially in teens). They’ll consume an energy drink, think, “See, you were wrong – I’m fine” and the warnings lose credibility. Learning how to read a label and knowing how much caffeine is too much is the key to consumer safety.

  • Can I simply just say what a comfort to discover a person that really understands what
    they are talking about over the internet. You certainly realize how to bring an issue to
    light and make it important. A lot more people have to read this and understand this side of the story.
    I was surprised you’re not more popular since you
    certainly have the gift.
