Of course, it's possible that energy drink consumption may pose some risks. But even if all the worst case scenarios were genuine, they pale in comparison to the number of accidents and ER visits related to the misuse of other products. For example, grooming products reportedly caused twice as many injuries in 2011 as energy drinks, clothing was responsible for more than 300,000 trips to the ER, and furniture was correlated with more than 580,000 injury reports. But nobody is calling to ban Ikea. Over-the-counter medicines and bunk beds pose well-known hazards, but parents know to take appropriate steps to protect their children, without any need for a ban or age limits. Why should energy drinks be any different?
