While the short-term benefits of energy drinks can be attractive, it’s not wise to ignore the potential health risks. Consuming these beverages regularly can have negative effects on the heart and blood pressure, and even cause dependency on these products to keep users’ energy at a ‘normal’ level. Factoring in that it’s illegal to sell these drinks to under-16s, the rise in children and young people using energy drinks is a cause for concern.

Our guide addresses these possible hazards, letting you know how to minimise them for children and young people who like the occasional can.
