Although a lot of us love the popular “energy drinks”, they have caused a lot of trouble for the Government. Many people are arguing about the sugary refreshments and whether they should be banned or not because they are very unhealthy.
Prime Minister Theresa May is making plans to ban teenagers from buying the popular energy drinks because of their high sugar levels.
The plan would stop bars from selling Red Bull and its caffeinated counterparts to anyone under 16, and possibly 18, because of the effect it has on children and their health.
Speaking during her trip to Africa, the Prime Minister said “With thousands of young people regularly consuming energy drinks, often because they are sold at cheaper prices than soft drinks, we will consult the ban of energy drinks to children”.
She also claimed, “it is vital that we do everything we can to do to make sure children have the best start in life possible.”
Recent studies show that three in five illnesses for children are because of sugary sweets and drinks. So next time you have a sweet treat or even a fizzy refreshment, bear in mind that you might end up in the hospital.
