Caffeine affects teen boys, girls differently

A new study finds caffeine can have a big impact on children, especially boys after puberty.

Researchers looked at boys and girls in the age groups 8-9 and 15-17. The group of teenage boys experienced slightly higher blood pressure levels than the teenage girls.

Researchers aren’t sure why teenage boys are more sensitive to caffeine, but suspect it has to do with hormones.
