Dangers of Kids Consuming Energy Drinks
DAYTON -- Doctors are seeing more and more teens drinking energy drinks, and it has them really concerned.
In the blazing Monday heat, soccer players worked hard until their next break.
"Running running running for 90 minutes, so I don't know how they do it," said Mary Hawley, as she and a group of parents watched their kids play soccer at the tournament in Beavercreek.
These moms not only cheer their boys on but make sure they are plenty hydrated.
"Make sure he drinks a lot of water during the game, before the game, the night before," said another Mom, Jeanine Schoen.
Something their boys never drink are energy drinks; but these moms see a lot of kids drinking them.
"He drinks a soda once in a while, but none of the energy, 5 hour energy or anything like that," said Schoen.
Dr. Lora Scott, Dayton Children's Co-Director of Sports Medicine is alarmed at how many young people are drinking them.
"A lot of them say they have natural energy. It's a product of nature. It's still a stimulant. Those are things like ginseng, even caffeine is found in nature," Dr. Scott explained.
Doctors say don't be fooled, they are dangerous for kids. A mom in Arizona blames them in her daughter's death. Her 16-year-old girl had a heart attack last week.
"Kids are smaller so they need a smaller dose to feel those same symptoms so they may not connect those symptoms are linked with the drink, so they may not know to stop," said Dr. Scott
"I think they're just a bad idea. I think it gets the heart rate elevated. At this point, water is the best thing they can drink, it 's the healthiest thing for them and it's just too much caffeine for that age. I don't drink it myself either," said Hawley.
