The Food and Drug Administration is decades behind and billions of dollars short in saying its time to investigate the proliferation of caffeine being added to food and drink products. The Associated Press reports that the FDA is taking a new look at added caffeine and its effects on children and adolescents after Wrigley pumped up its new product, Alert Energy Gum, with caffeine.
Kids have been consuming caffeine supercharged energy drinks and food for ages. The FDA has been sitting on its hands.
The food industry and its consumers are likely too hooked on the caffeine high for the FDA to put the brakes on the drugs use.
