It's no secret that boys and girls bodies react differently to different stimuli and now you can add caffeine to the list.
WJZ-TV reports that according to researchers from the University at Buffalo in New York, after puberty, boys have a greater response to caffeine when it comes to heart rate and blood pressure.
WYOU: "They also found that young women experienced different reactions during their menstrual cycle which makes researchers think hormonal factors might be at play."
This study comes after the Food and Drug Administration announced it was looking into the safety of caffeine in kids.
Over the years there have been a number of teenage deaths reported where energy drinks were cited as a possible factor. And while it's not distinctly proven that energy drinks caused the deaths, researchers say the connection is unsettling.
According to Time, the result does have a few holes as the study group mainly consisted of white, well-educated, middle class participants.
According to the study's author, "Future research will determine the extent to which these gender differences are mediated by II factors, such as steroid hormones, or psychosocial factors, such as more autonomy and control over beverage purchases."
As of now, the American Academy of Pediatrics does not recommenced adolescence consume caffeine.
