Energy Drinks are dangerous

Energy Drinks are considered very dangerous, especially for children and teenagers, as studies in Florida showed. These drinks have a lot of caffeine, sugar and supplements for example vitamins and herbal essences. Paediatrician in the USA have indicated that young people who consumed these energy drinks had seizures, hallucinations, heart problems  and even kidney and liver damage.  
Since the energy drinks are characterised as dietary supplements they go through less scrutiny and restrictions than food and medicine. Although manufacturers claim that their products enhance both mental and physical performance, researchers from Florida, who reviewed the statistics on this issue, consider the statements of the companies (which support the beneficial properties of their products) as questionable.
