Well it took 7 posts to realize that, so apparently it's the equivalent of Chinese arithmetic in the linguistic world. Well-played.

Most likely due to the cardiac arrest

What a bunch of horsesh*t. It's like when experts claim that someone died from smoking because they died in a car accident and just happened to be a smoker 10 years ago.

5 Hour Energy drink does not have a high caffeine content. Redline however.... bottled meth. Friend of mine was a former meth addict, took a sip of Redline and said it was much stronger than anything he had ever done.
 
2012-11-15 10:20:55 AM  
Did they die after drinking one or possibly more than one? 5 hour energy doesn't seem to have any one thing that could be THAT dangerous in small quantities. If you slammed a few of these in one sitting, that could be a problem. I dunno. Like Dr. Tran, I'm not a doctor.

It's what they call a very early miscarriage.

I can't imagine how stupid/callous someone would have to be to drink energy drinks when pregnant.

Obviously, they died after drinking more hours of energy than there were hours in a day.

Bullshiat. I downed a 5-hour energy shot this morning followed by a 34 oz. mug of coffee with 4 Stok shots in it, and I feel... ACK!!! - - *thud*.

Friends say she drank eight 5-Hour Energy drinks. "That equals 40 hours of energy. There is just not enough hours in the day,"

Redbull is the largest energy drink company and according to their website RedBull sold 4.631 Billion cans worldwide in 2011. And 5 hour energy and monster are making money hand over fist. So with millions of cans/energy shots being sold in the US every year, if there's only 13 deaths that might maybe have involved them in the last 4 years I'm not sure I see that there's a real problem.

Id bet thats the case. Be it for energy while at work, or worse yet to try and get some sort oh high, its likely people are drinking way too much. Most high caffeine drinks/shots like that say right on the bottle not to drink more than one or two in an 8 hour period. If your downing one every hour...thats probably not good.

Also it seems people with heart conditions are drinking the things without any consideration for whats in them, and how it might aggravate the condition.

Doesn't Tylenol (Acetaminophen) cause about 450 something deaths a year by people taking WAY too much of the stuff? That's what happens when you over exceed the stated dosage morans. 5 hour clearly states not to drink more than 2 in a day. Cafeine can obviously kill you if you take too much. Hell, so can water. Stop being a moran and blaming others for your stupidity

A place I use to work at had an onsite concession stand, sold these for $5 per bottle. Even price gouging convenience stores only charged $2.49 for them

Their pink breast cancer car looks cool though, can't we give them a break and use 5 Hour with caution?

cdn.faniq.com


I told everyone a couple of years ago. Energy Drinks will be the tobacco companies of the 2000's. I think 5 Hour is fine if you have maybe one a week or less, if you're pounding 2-3 a day, it's not good for you. RedBull has been linked to blood clots, etc.

If it's sufficiently early in the pregnancy, the woman may not know she's pregnant.

Ugh. I want to puke when I see their commercials. They can't be good for you. That much caffeine (they won't even tell you how much -- that's a bad sign) and taurine and whatever else they dream up, all in just 2 ounces! Ugh.

Had a bunch of vodka red bulls one night -- the hangover the next day and how sick my body felt convinced me that the red bull was much much worse for my body than the vodka.
