  • It is bad

    You can die,sugar, lots of caffiene.
    Energy drinks has sent teenagers to emergency rooms with racing heart beats. Some teens have relied on them to stay awake for days at a time, running only on caffeine and nervous energy. These should all be prohibited until studies can be undertaken to research their safety.Required for sustained physical and mental activity. This means only the energy required not more than is needed which may have bad effects. Drink is a liquid that can be swallowed as refreshment and nourishment. Energy Drink I believe falls under the word drug. There are many reasons that these drinks should be banned especially because of effects and symptoms of energy drink consumption. Some side effects include headaches, restlessness, tremors, shaking, agitation, Gastrointestinal upset, chest pains, dizziness, Parathesia (tingling or numbing of the skin), insomnia and respiratory distress. These are just some of the symptoms for energy drink consumption. In moderation most people will have no adverse, short term side from energy drinks, however, the long term effects from consuming substances like these aren't fully understood. The ingredients that make up energy drinks have effects on there own:
    Caffeine is one ingredient in energy drink that causes a lot of problems. Caffeine tolerance varies from person to person, but for most people the tolerance is 200-300mg. Health, on community and children is important .If parents restrict coffee and coke from kids then why not energy drinks. Many side effects have already been mentioned another one is cardiovascular disease (deadliest killer in Australia )
    Drugs include: Caffeine and other additives, such as taurine, ginseng and carnitine that act as stimulants.
    This is why energy drinks are bad for and should be banned or at least have restricted sale. Take energy drinks are gambling with your future but ultimately it is the consumers choice.

  • Should be prohibited

    They are dangerous and many consumers do not know what they are drinking. Energy drinks have killed many innocent people. The worst part about it is that advertisements are geared toward teens. When a teen drinks something they don't care about taking care of their body but instead looking cool in front of their friends.

  • Energy drink should be banned.

    Energy drinks should be banned. Or at least have restricted sale as we don't fully understand the effects of energy drinks making consuming them dangerous. First we need to define the words energy and drink. Energy means the strength and vitality required for sustained physical and mental activity. This means only the energy required not more than is needed which may have bad effects. Drink is a liquid that can be swallowed as refreshment and nourishment. Energy Drink I believe falls under the word drug. There are many reasons that these drinks should be banned especially because of effects and symptoms of energy drink consumption.

  • Energy Drinks Unsafe?

    Yes, the sale of energy drinks should be prohibited. There have been deaths that may have been linked to energy drinks. Energy drinks are not regulated and have not had safety studies performed. They have enhanced levels of caffeine and assorted other herbs and additives that are not FDA approved. Consuming multiple energy drinks has sent teenagers to emergency rooms with racing heart beats. Some teens have relied on them to stay awake for days at a time, running only on caffeine and nervous energy. These should all be prohibited until studies can be undertaken to research their safety.

  • america should be able to choose

    we can give powerpoints on how bad the energy drinks actually are, but the rest is thier choice. we have educated them, but make them learn. If they want a heart attack at fifteen let them. If they didn't want to know then lets stop trying. spend school money on other education for people who actually care

  • It's all about choice

    While energy drinks are awful for you, people have the choice to drink them or not. If they want to screw their bodies by having multiple energy drinks every day, then that is their business and nobody else's. If someone wants an energy drink to get the boost they need every once in a while then that's their right. Not everyone abuses energy drinks.

  • Consumer choice

    Banning everything that seems remotely dangerous just leads to an authoritarian (and very boring) society. No doubt people will just find some new dangerous things to get themselves involved in, too, and then we'll just have to ban those. I think it's better to leave the choice in the hands of consumers.

  • The sale of energy drinks should remain legal

    The sale of energy drinks should not be prohibited for the same reason alcohol and tobacco are not prohibited. The decision to purchase and consume energy drinks should be left up to the individual without the government intervening. As long as the proper warnings are clearly labeled on the drinks, the choice to purchase them should remain with the consumer.

  • Energy drinks should not be prohibited

    Energy Drinks should in no way be prohibited. It is up to the consumer to decide what is healthy or not and what he/she should ingest in their bodies. There are plenty of energy drinks that are healthy and good for you, so not all of them are bad. One thing that could be improved is to remove the stuff that is bad, like sucralose and artificial stuff.
