Anything in excess can kill you. From water to your favourite burger.

This I know....he drinks at least 6 of these from 1:00pm to 11~12:00am. I'm worried about him! Yet angry at the same time, because I've tried to tell him. (Not mad at you, bro...but at his stubborn ways) I love the little fella, don't want anything else to happen that's bad to my family, you know?

Agreed. Seriously, I'd like to know the details in these situations myself. I've taken 5-hour energy before, and have never felt jittery or like a steaming pile of crap (like what Starbucks does to me). Stuff works pretty much exactly as advertised, including the duration.

The last place I worked, I saw this one dumb girl abusing the **** out of them though. We'd make runs to the Walgreen's next door, and she'd ask us to get her 4, ...2 for the morning, 2 after lunch. We only got her one though, which didn't do much as she just got angry and went to get them herself.

So yeah, I do see how things like this could potentially happen. People do dumb things, thinking they're invincible and crap. I personally think they get what they deserve but hey, that's just me.

I went through a phase of drinking energy shots / drinks etc, after a few weeks I started getting massive headaches, stopped drinking them, no more headaches


Congrats!

I can just see a bunch of teen girls, guzzling energy drinks, when they become pregnant.

Ummm...13 deaths in 4 years?

Ummm....there are people dying of natural causes 10 times more than what this stuff is doing.


This just in ... 100% drank water before dying.

Correlation? Folks who are using these to prop themselves up usually have other poor dietary and life habits.

Those probably contributed far more than the caffeine.

Hell if caffeine alone were enough to kill you I'd probably be dead several times over now. I can't count the number of nights where I made my way through about a gallon of Mountain Dew while working on a project.
