Britain wants to Ban the Sale of Energy Drinks to Minors
The British government wants to ban the sale of energy drinks to minors. With this, she hopes not only to fight obesity but also to reduce misconduct in classrooms.
In no other country, children drink as many sweet drinks as in Great Britain.
The British Department of Health is very concerned about the drinks, which are full of calories and caffeine. Some bottles contain the equivalent of ten teaspoons of sugar.
They contribute to obesity, but according to health experts, they can also provide insomnia, headaches and hyperactivity in particular.
The latter is a big problem in British education. A third disadvantage is the number of empty bottles on the street, especially near schools.
Studies show that one in four primary schools buys energy drinks on a regular basis.
