Energy Drink Policies: Mini-Case Studies
Adverse health effects from the consumption of energy drinks by children, adolescents and young adults is a growing source of concern. State and local governments and nongovernmental organizations can play an important role to raise awareness about the issue and to enact policies to reduce consumption of energy drinks.
The five US-based mini-case studies provide highlight examples of policies enacted by school districts, high-school and collegiate athletic associations and a state government. The polices range from an individual school handbook policy, to a district-wide ban, to national athletic association policy.
