Are energy drinks bad for teenagers?!

Question: Are energy drinks bad for teenagers!?
This unending debate shold never have the school system to get the final word!. They can be bad because one time you're hyped up and the next thing you crash (in other words, get tired)!. Just have an energy drink once a day!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Energy drinks are not designed for kids and even the makers will recommend to not give them to kids!. However, they tend to cut off age 12 as being a kid!. There is a lot of speculation as to weather or not teens should have them or not!.

The real problem is that teens are still growing and have plenty of hormones in thier system!. They need sleep, water, and nutrition and should not take extra stimulants or herbs designed to do many things unless they really need it!.

People have always said that sodas are bad for kids and teens but in many ways energy drinks are worse!. They have much more sugar and caffeine then sodas do!. However they do have other beneficial ingredients even if they are stimulants, which sodas do not have!. In fact they add B vitamins which caffeine takes away from our bodies so this alone makes them better than sodas!. So basically they are better and worse than sodas!.

When it comes down to it as long as teens are properly hydrated and have good nutrition than having 1 a day will not harm you!. Most people simply do not use them as intended or take too many!. Red Bull recommends only 1 to 2 a day!. The 2n largest selling, and the 1st and largest healthy energy drink, XS Energy also recommends 1 and no more than 2 a day!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

energy drinks are bad for everybody!. sugar and caffine aren't good anyway, but in those doses can even be dangerous!.
ever have too much coffee!? how your heart races and its hard to breath!? if you don't get that feeling from energy drinks, you have a serious caffine addiction!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
