Red Bull Gives You Wings

Kaitlyn Nunley, Section Editor

Red Bull in fact does not give you wings, it gives you health issues such as increased blood pressure, heart palpitations, anxiety, and panic attacks, gastrointestinal disturbance (diarrhea), increased urination, dizziness, irritability, nausea, nervousness, and jitters. Fremont Middle School administration extremely discourages students bringing any kind of energy drink to school in fear of students getting these minor and major health problems. 

Sixth grade language arts teacher Mr. Foster says “Drinking energy drinks causes extreme health problems that could be an issue later down the line in life.” Fremont does not sell any kind of energy drink in the vending machines. 

I think it’s unfair that energy drinks are banned especially if your parents let you drink. If you buy them with your own money, why should the office have the right to take them from you? I understand why the administration would want students to not drink them in fear of students getting the health issues, but I still disagree.
