Energy drinks are a relatively new product that are available worldwide. They are non-alcoholic beverages that contain caffeine and may also contain carbohydrates, amino acids, vitamins, and other substances. When energy drinks are consumed, they can cause negative health repercussions, particularly upon children. This Article explains the negative health impacts that energy drinks can have upon children and it also examines the law concerning energy drinks in-depth in three key areas: taxes, advertising, and labeling. This Article is one of the few peer-reviewed journal articles to argue, from a legal perspective, that governments must ban the sale of energy drinks to children.
