Caffeine is a drug that is often overlooked and it's negative effects genreally glossed over in our society.
Clearly it's not as bad as alcohol and not needed to calculate a "safe" dose in the case of caffeine but cleaclearly labeling the caffeine content will allow people to see how
much caffeine they ingest at a glance. Many people are not aware of how much caffeine is in soda and often get addicted to caffeine without realizing it is happeneing.
I think that one of the reasons beverage companies use caffeine in many drinks is to get people hooked on that beverage.
Many people are also sensitive to caffeine and could use the labels to judge wether or not they want to drink that drink late in the day or when they need to sleep.
Caffeine also is bad for people with certain heart conditions and will increase the likely hood a person will avoid that drink if they choose to consume less caffeine.
Overall I think adding the content will help because it subliminaly shows people that caffeine is a drug and should be treated like it while increasing consumer awareness and choice while
also not discouraging or inconvenienceing anyone who chooses to use caffeine.
