Starbucks and Children Health Risks


Do you know the risks to daily intakes of Starbucks Frappachinos? Some believe that Starbucks and Health Risks are linked. For instance we know excessive sugar is not good for you and increases risks of early onset diabetes. We know excessive caffeine can cause risks of heart attacks and cardiac arrest. Yet when you put the two together in a foo foo drink like a frappachino, do you really believe that you will not get fat or addicted?

When you sit in a Starbucks you see the frappachinos being served at $4.00 per unit and little fat human children come in a sip on them, thanks to their parents. What the parents obviously do not know or care is that they are causing issues in still forming brains of children under six and adding to the ADHD problems, which are real or imaginary in today's youth. Feeding kids frappachinos, one might say is like feeding your dog poison. Of course this is only one opinion I overheard on my last Starbucks visit. Yet you buy only the balanced version dog foods for your pet? Why would we stuff such garbage into our children?

Recently as I came out of a Petco a family of four loaded a 50 pound bag of dog food into their SUV of ScienceBlend and then said; "okay we are all done, you've been good kids, lets go to Starbucks." As I over heard this in the parking lot and waited patiently for all the doors to close so I could then attempt to get into my car. I thought to myself; "wow, they bought special dog food for their puppies, but are going to now feed poison to their children? Interesting. Maybe this is just a sign of the times, rewarding little humans for being good by poisoning their bodies? Think about it parents.
