Say NO To Energy Drinks For Those Who Are Under 16
Petitioning: Teenager Under The Age of 16
Petitioner: Holly McKnight started on February 10, 2009
I would like to call for a petition against energy drinks for the teenagers who are under the age of 16!
In 2005, the paramedic department received more than 450,000 calls regarding the poison control of energy drinks overdose.
The side effects of the caffeine overdose include nausea, rapid heart race and seizures. Some energy even contains more than 280mg of caffeine and it is equivalent to 8 cups of coffee!
Do you want your kids to freely purchase these drinks and later on suffer from caffeine addiction or overdose? I am sure that your answer is NO!
I will present this petition to my congressman about this concern and hopefully they will put an age limit on the energy drinks purchase.
I appreciate your support.
