Energy Drink Deaths

(Washington, D.C.)
The Food and Drug Administration is investigating reports of 13 deaths possibly linked to so-called "energy shots" and cautioning consumers to talk to their doctors before they take them or other energy drinks.

The agency has received 92 reports that cite illnesses, hospitalizations and deaths after consumption of a product marketed as 5-Hour Energy. The FDA has also received reports that cited the highly caffeinated Monster Energy Drink in five deaths and one non-fatal heart attack.
If the danger continues, I suspect that the feds will pass a new law regulating energy drinks.

The old saying says "too much of a good thing is no good". Something new people seem to ignore.

I'm a firm believer in listening to what ancestors have to say, more often than not they're right.
