University of Minnesota study links sports and energy drinks to unhealthy teen behaviors
Adolescents who consume sports and energy drinks at least once a week are more likely than their peers to drink other sugar-sweetened beverages, to smoke and to spend sedentary time playing video games and watching television, according to a new study from the University of Minnesota. For example, boys in the study who drank energy drinks at least once a week spent an average of about four hours more per week playing video games, and girls who drank sports drinks at least once a week were twice as likely to smoke cigarettes.
