In today's health matters, the University of New Hampshire is backing off a ban on selling energy drinks on campus.

UNH announced this week it would stop selling such drinks starting in January. Then later in the day, the university's president announced he needs more information.

The ban that's now on hold would have halted the sale of high-caffeine, high-sugar energy drinks at UNH's retail and vending locations starting in 2012.

UNH says it wants to study the health impact of energy drinks and reports about the dangers of mixing them with alcohol.

UNH already unveiled other health initiatives like serving more local foods, eliminating trans fats, reducing sodium and even removing salt shakers from tables. The goal is to be the healthiest campus in the country by 2020.
