Underestimated risk of energy drink consumption in school-aged children is explored in recently published paper of dr. Jana Holubcikova

One of the recently published articles by our colleague, dr. Jana Holubcikova, revealed that adolescents consuming both alcohol and energy drinks were at higher risk of negative behavioural outcomes than their peers who drank only alcohol or energy drinks or were non-consumers. The adverse effect of energy drinks consumption on behaviour was comparable to that of alcohol consumption, but its prevalence was much higher. Our findings should thus alarm and mobilise public health experts and other stakeholders, who should increase awareness about the adverse effects of energy drinks consumption and implement interventions aimed at reducing the consumption of these beverages by adolescents.
