Washington: A new study has found that kids who regularly consume the increasingly popular caffeine-laden energy drinks or gulp down a relatively large amount of the liquid in a short span are at a higher risk of experiencing seizures, heart palpitations or other such problems.According to Rutgers University`s poison control experts, these drinks are made for adults and when young children drink them, they consume a large quantity of caffeine for their body mass. At the minimum, they become wired - just as an adult would - and it might be difficult for parents to console them or calm them down.Bruce Ruck, director of drug information and professional education for the New Jersey Poison Information and Education System (NJPIES) at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School in Newark, said that kids also might have trouble falling asleep or experience tremors, anxiety, agitation, heart palpitations, nausea or vomiting. Of more concern, they may experience a rapid heart rate or seizures.
