Newsflash, drinking too much water can also kill you! Did you know that? Yes indeed. And digesting too much caffeine can also kill you! Forget the nanny state nonsense, just teach moderation in all things, and if you are worried about Jr. or Sally using too much caffeine, as a parent make sure you... oh, how about pay attention to them a little bit more? Government is not our minder. Personal responsibility and accountability. Teach it, live it. Tell your kids they should probably stay away from the "buzz gum" and use caffeine sparingly. Its too bad this state does such a terrible job at educating kids about the effect of drugs. Just saying "just say no" is about as worthless as the breath that uttered it. How about teaching kids the chemical reaction that occurs in the body? Its like sex education, see no, hear no, do no... good luck!

I can see the government made it possible (somewhat) to all public schools but at home or anywhere? Good luck FDA!

First of all moderation in all things doesn't protect our children. Yes, we have to teach our children but some things shouldn't be taken even in moderation. The FDA has done a lousy job in so many ways so truly it is up to the people to make changes. It's like the genetically modified foods entering into our food chain without a word from anyone. Did you know that Cheerios that once was considered wholesome now has Genetically Modified Corn Starch in it. I see many of us turning to growing our own foods and simply not buying the junk that is out there.
