Energy Drinks May Pose Health Risks for Young Kids

Energy Drinks May Pose Health Risks for Young Kids

Posted By Golomb & Honik || 21-Nov-2014

Energy drinks should not be a part of a young child’s diet, according to an article recently published by Bloomberg entitled “Energy Drinks Jolts Young Kids with too much Caffeine.” The article says that energy drinks should be labeled with warnings that specifically state that the drinks are not safe for children to consume because of their caffeine levels. Many children have been brought to hospitals due to seizures, heart problems, tremors, nausea, vomiting, chest pain, and erratic heart rhythms that were caused by the consumption of energy drinks.

If your child consumed an energy drink and became sick or injured as a result, the defective product lawyers at Golomb & Honik will be able to provide you with proper legal guidance.

The Bloomberg article suggests that energy drinks should:

  • Not be marketed to children under the age of 18
  • Be regulated similar to tobacco, alcohol and driving

In order to prevent potential health risks, energy drinks should be kept away from children. Additionally, people of any age who have underlying health conditions should not consume energy drinks without first consulting with their physician. If you or a loved one suffered injuries or an illness due to the consumption of an energy drink, you may be entitled to compensation for your damages. Golomb & Honik will fight aggressively for your rights every step of the way.
