A new study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that nearly 75 percent of kids have caffeine every day. But it’s not just coming from soda. Kids are also drinking more coffee and energy drinks. Experts say that’s a concern because those beverages can contain much higher amounts of caffeine than soda and iced tea. Dr. Elissa Rubin from Happy and Healthy Pediatrics in New York echoes the sentiment from the American Academy of Pediatrics.
Almost all of us get an extra jolt every day from a drink with caffeine. We’re a nation that borders on addiction.
Energy drinks are everywhere — and they are increasingly popular with kids.
How much do caffeine would you say you drink a day? One study says 98 percent of people consume some kind of caffeine every day.
For millions of us, we start every morning with a cup of coffee. Most of us choose regular, fully-caffeinated coffee, but many drink decaf. So, how does coffee get decaffeinated?
Americans are addicted to caffeine. Around 90 percent of us consume some form of it on a daily basis. So, how much caffeine is too much?
Caffeine has never really affected me. I drink a fair amount of diet soda. I enjoy the taste of coffee, but I don’t feel like it gives me a jolt.
