Children who drink caffeinated drinks such as Coca-Cola are at greater risk of future addictions as their brains develop differently, new research suggests.
A study of 2,000 children aged nine and ten in the United States found that having daily caffeinated fizzy drinks was associated with poorer memory and greater impulsivity.
Analysis of brain scans by a team of addiction experts indicated that these children would be more susceptible to “harder drugs” including alcohol in the future.
The surprise is they didn’t mention either sugar or ultraprocessed foods. Terribly behind the fashions these septics.
