Caffeine is a natural stimulant that is usually found in coffee, tea, and chocolate. Consuming excessive amounts of caffeine is harmful to our body, as it can cause insomnia, heart palpitations, anxiety, and growth inhibition. In an effort to promote healthier lifestyles among students, the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety announced a revised law that will ban the sales of all coffee and caffeinated products in all elementary, middle, and high schools. It will be effective from Sept. 14. Previously, the law banned the sales of high-caffeine products, such as energy drinks. However, purchasing caffeinated products in schools was still possible via vending machines.
