The topic of energy drinks being allowed for kids is a huge debate. Energy drinks are said to help give you energy for you long days, but are very deadly at the same time. Energy drink companies say that it’s the kids faults for drinking the energy products but all in all it is there’s to begin with. They have hidden so much from us should they be allowed to hide it any more? One of the biggest dangers of energy drinks is death. There are twelve reported death reports saying that monster energy is the cause for the deaths. The companies were sued by the families of the teens who died from drinking the drinks. The companies stated that it was their kids faults for there deaths because the consumed the product in hand, but they didn’t know the ingredients in the energy drinks. Some of the publics schools in Washington sell energy drinks everyday at there schools.
The energy drink companies are trying to get the advertisement out to the younger kids to wanting them to buy more and more of there products. If we pulled the energy drinks from schools and selling them there would be less teen and children deaths in the us alone then there has been over the year. Energy drink companies should label everything a lot better, because having them hide some of the ingredients isn’t something id like to let my kids use. Less people would drink them if they new what all was in the products. Most of there products have over 1,600mg of sugar in it , that’s equal to one in a half to two bags of sugar. Putting all this sugar into these drinks and having kids consume them causes the kids to become hyperactive whenever they consume the product.
If these kids keep drinking these drinks they will cause them self to get diabetes, after drinking the energy drinks for a long period of time.Considering the challenge of being sued for there product the companies try and change the topics to the family. When the companies blame the family for there family members death. The energy drink companies should be responsible because they are changing up the story every time someone sues them into trouble of their product. Yes I think energy drinks help with getting energy during the day, but the drinks a re a health concern for everyone. The unknown knowledge to everyone is the only reason why they are hiding there ingredients so they wont get in trouble for there product causing peoples deaths.
