KIDS AND CAFFEINE-2SH-TRX-3SHOT BUB


ALARMING NEW INFORMATION IN THIS MORNING'S HEALTH CAST.

IN A NEW STUDY BY THE U-S CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL, RESEARCHERS FOUND CHILDREN ARE DRINKING LESS SODA.

BUT IT'S NOT GOOD NEWS. INSTEAD THEY'RE REACHING FOR ENERGY DRINKS AND COFFEE.

NBC2'S DANIELLE KOLENIAK TOOK THE FINDINGS TO AN EXPERT TO SEE WHAT THE HIGH INTAKE OF CAFFIENE CAN DO TO OUR KIDS. Return to index of stories...


KIDS AND CAFFEINE-BUB


POPULAR SODAS LIKE COCA-COLA HAVE ALWAYS BEEN THE DRINK WE WERE WARNED ABOUT. HIGH SUGAR AND CAFFEINE.

THIS CAN CONTAINS 34 MILLIGRAMS OF CAFFEINE.

IN THE C-D-C'S STUDY, RESEARCHERS FOUND, THAT BECAUSE THE SOURCES OF CAFFIENE ARE INCREASING, KIDS ARE NOW REACHING FOR THINGS LIKE 5 HOUR ENERGY DRINK AND MONSTER FOR THE JOLT.

THIS LITTLE BOTTLE HAS AS MORE THAN 5 TIMES OF CAFFEINE THAN ONE CAN OF COKE.

I SPOKE TO A PEDIATRICIAN ABOUT THE DANGERS THIS POSES FOR OUR KIDS. Return to index of stories...

KIDS AND CAFFEINE-SOT-SS


"The reality is that both approaches are wrong. Sodas are not healthy

and a lot of the calories and the calories you get should not come

from liquids. It's also not healthy for kids to be consuming more than

100 milligrams of caffeine a day and just a small energy drink has

160.

THE BIGGEST CONCERN IS HOW MUCH IS TOO MUCH AND AND THAT'S ALSO CONNECTED TO IT'S EFFECTS.

SHORT TERM EFFECTS, DOCTORS SEE ELEVATED BLOOD PRESSURE, INSOMNIA, AND INCREASE IN ANXIETY.

WHILE THE LONG TERM SIDE EFFECTS ARE MUCH MORE SEVERE--- IRRITABLE BOWL SYNDROME AND OSTEOPOPOSIS. Return to index of stories...


KIDS AND CAFFEINE-BUB


DOCTOR'S ADVICE, LIMIT YOUR CHILD TO 100 MILLIGRAMS OF CAFFEINE EVERY DAY. THAT'S ABOUT THE CUP OF COFFEE.
