    Dear Dr. Lucy Tse,

    It is obvious that recently people around me range from adolescences, young adults, to the middle-aged are turning to
    energy drinks or stimulant drinks. After reading your script, I asked many energy drinkers (most are teenagers) why
    they did not choose one of the various kinds of juice available. The answers are not much different from your ‘Joan’
    except an unexpected one from eleven girls and two boys -15 to 17 years old- that they are trying to lose weight. Their
    reasons are juice contains too much but their favorites are low or no sugar and also being added some non-fat fibers.
    To my shocking, I wonder how many teens think and are doing like this! Some of the thirteen are siblings and they also
    tell me that they will never let their parents know their present conduct. Do some teens in your country behave like this?

    Best regards
    sutisha
