Teenager caffeine habits

Sorry peeps, but teenoids require intensive sleep during puberty for normal brain maturation. That’s the latest conclusion from researchers who tested the effects of caffeine on developing brains at a time when the brain is maturing the fastest. Give them caffeine and the maturing processes in the brain are delayed. Caffeine consumption in both kids and adults has increased by over 70% in the last 3 decades and there is no end to this rise in sight with the fast-growing sales in caffeine-laden energy drinks. Caffeine intake equating to three or four cups of coffee per day results in reduced deep sleep and a delayed brain development.
