if you watch ‘that sugar film’ you will see why - the caffeine/sugar content is formulated to make them addictive

How old is your son?? W.H.O. raised the recommended minimum age for caffeine to 18 a couple of years ago; it wreaks havoc in children/young teens due to its psychotropic properties.

I did a Uni paper about its effects on children as part of my EYFS coursework about 10 years ago; after a 4 y/o in my care collapsed because her parents repeatedly allowed her to drink cola.
I forget the exact medical diagnosis, but it was something along the lines of "chronic systemic fatigue"; ie she had burnt up all her body's physical reserves in response to the stimulants.

Mountain Dew contains a MUCH higher amount of caffeine than any cola, and more than most coffees.

I had to stop drinking 3-4 years ago because it was making my anxiety 10 times worse.

Tastes lovely though

When researching the EYFS paper, I came across an article from the USA; apparently one local psychiatric assessment centre in New York had started screening for caffeine intake, and had managed to "cure" about half of the psychotics involuntarily admitted by limiting their caffeine intake. Some were on over 50 double expresso's a day.


Caffeine directly affects the central nervous system, it is addictive, habit forming and similar to heroin in that the body builds a tolerance to it, requiring larger and larger doses to get a "high". Lethal dose is about 2 grammes, with some energy drinks containing 800mg.

Early symptoms of an overdose are numbness of the extremities, then paralysis spreading up the body, eventually shutting down the central nervoisu system and stopping the heart.

Even at "safe" doses it can cause paranoia and aggressive behaviour - which is why caffeinated alcoholic drinks are a VERY bad idea (Double whammy).


it scared me so much, I stopped drinking anything containing it for about 5-6 years.
