Description

Many teens readily consume caffeinated drinks: coffee, tea, colas, energy boosters, caffeinated sports drinks, and more. Many teens also use powdered caffeine or energy shots to boost energy for all-nighters, performances, competitions, or exams. But most teens do not know that caffeine is a neuro-stimulant that can cause overdose poisoning or even death. This program takes a look at the pros and cons of caffeine use and teaches viewers to understand whether or not they are in the danger zone for caffeine overuse or even dangerous overdose.
