STUDY: Caffeine affects girls more than boys

Updated: Monday, June 16 2014, 04:23 PM EDT

New research shows the effects of caffeine on kids.

The study from the University of Buffalo says young people are drinking more caffeine than they used to and it may be affecting girls more than boys.

Researchers had 96 children drink caffeinated beverages -- and then tested their heart rates.

The results showed that caffeine had more of an effect on girl’s heart rate and blood pressure than boys.

The doctors say it could be because of the girl's menstrual cycle phases.
