Regretfully, numerous adolesents like Rehim have become addicted to energy drinks in recent years. Are energy drinks dangerous as is said ? In particular, what can happen to the child's organism after consuption of energy drinks?
Marketer Rafig Hunaltai told that age of energy drinks consuption dropped by 10 though it was 18 before: " Energy drinks market is regularly increasing in Azerbaijan. Number of people consuming energy drinks is rising. It is, of course, is not a positive indicator.
Touching on enlightment of people on energy drinks, Hunaltai told that parents are more responsible for it than a producer: " Parents must be aware of damages of too much consuming of energy drinks. In my opinion, positive and negative sides of energy drinks should be publicized. Whereas the main responsibility should be taken by teenagers who consume it much more than norm. Moreover, government also may use some adminstrative methods. Sale of energy drinks may be restricted in some places.
Mushvig Isgenderov, marketing manager of "Hell” energy drinks Azerbaijan said that the company being represented by them always inform consumers about it. Actually, there is no any official ban of energy drinks in the world over its damages to adolesents. However, considering that children should have more water and natural ingredients we have noted it.

Unfortunately, most of people are unknown about dangerous outcomes of these drinks for organism. Although teenagers consume more energy drinks but people from all age groups can be considered addicter of energy drinks. Some research show that consumption of energy drings may cause drug and alcohol addiction in future. One more danger is that while doing sport people drink energy drinks.
Energy drinks raise blood pressure and pulse, cause infarction, insomnia, shaking in the hands, nausea and vomiting , severe arrhythmias, and even sudden death. It categorically unacceptable to drink energy drinks before or after doing sport.
Doctor Adil Geybulla also maintain restriction of energy drinks: " Regretfully, energy drinks are spread on a very broad network. Energy drinks contain tonic substances which are dangerous for human life, in particular caffeine. Consupmtion of these drinks is very dangerous for growing organism. Thus, a heart gets overhelmed and increases heart rate. Heart muscle gets tired as heart rhythm increased. In my opinion, parents must ban energy drinks consuption as they do it for alcohol. Their sale must be banned in schools. Since children do not comprehend the danger and iots harmful outcomes.
