In a study of over 1,600 middle-schoolers, a study concluded what anyone could tell you in a heartbeat.
Drinking sugary, high-energy drinks raises the risk of hyperactivity in children. D'UH.
Lead researcher Jeannette Ickovics of the Yale School of Public Health found that at least ONE can of a high-energy drink was enough to cause hyperactivity and inattention to 66% of those tested.
Amazing. Stop the presses, folks.
Ickovics went on, stating that parents should "parents should restrict their children from (having) all sugar-sweetened beverages, and especially energy drinks."
Slow-clap, Jeannette. Slow-clap.
