The Faculty of Sport and Exercise Medicine has responded to research by Cardiff University School of Dentistry on the high consumption of sports drinks, for social reasons amongst children aged 12-14.
The high sugar content and low pH of sports drinks increases the risk of obesity, type 2 diabetes and the erosion of tooth enamel. There is no evidence of the beneficial effects of sports drinks in non-elite athletes or children. Water and milk is sufficient enough to hydrate before, during and after exercise.
Keynote speakers include:
Mr Frank Dick OBE - Sport & Corporate Coaching Consulan
Mr James Moore, Deputy Chef de Mission Performance Services for Team GB for the Olympic Games in Rio 2016
Dr Stuart Miller - Chief Medical Officer, British Paralympic Association
Following a response by the Faculty of Sport and Exercise Medicine (FSEM) to the Government's sport strategy consultation in November 2015, Sporting Future - A New Strategy for an Active Nation was released by the Department for Culture Media and Sport and Tracey Crouch MP. Sport and Exercise Medicine and “its use within the NHS and wider public health practice” is a key part of the strategy's deliverables. Read our response and outcome here.
