According to a research on the effect of energy drinks on teenagers, the scientists found that these predispose young people to more severe addictions in the future.
Michigan researchers, who analyzed this problem, say that young people who drink energy drinks usually seek thrills and are inclined to risk more. So, they will not hesitate to switch to more dangerous substances. The experts analyzed data of 22,000 students in the United States. About 30% of them drink caffeinated drinks and 40% drink refreshments.
Usually, boys prefer these drinks, especially those who come from dysfunctional and less educated families.
A can of energy drink contains 13 teaspoons of sugar and caffeine as for two cups of coffee.
