Campaign: To raise awareness of the dangers of energy drinks

I don't believe that people are aware of the amount of health risks that energy drinks pose.

 

A lot of young people drink them to enhance their concentration without understanding their negative effects.

 

As well as contributing to obesity with their high sugar content, energy drinks have also been linked to type 2 diabetes, strokes, and cardiac problems.

 

These beverages are sold in shops with no restrictions and I find it scary to think of my own child having access to these products.

 

I am campaigning for an age restriction to be implemented on energy drinks and for young people to know the potential damage they can cause.
