Over the past four years, the National Ambulance Service has recorded an average of 100 cases per year where children under the age of 18 had to be treated for energy drinks, Hollik said in the video.
This makes it clear, the politician continued, the consumption of energy drinks is a health risk and it is justified to restrict their sale in the same way as alcohol and tobacco products.
Nacsa pointed out that a 14-year-old boy who had been drinking energy drinks died of cardiac arrest at a school in Hatvan a year ago.
Teachers also report that it is common for children to fall asleep in class around 10-11 a.m., when the effects of energy drinks consumed before school begins start wearing off, said Nacsa.
