    Is this thread a knock against the FDA? I'd think you would want the FDA to investigate the drinks and make sure they're safe for consumption.

    Steroids show evidence to not be bad for you at all if admitted right. They don't cause cancer and they don't kill you at all. Yet they are illegal, class C to be exact. Same as cocaine. But something that does hurt you, kill you, is perfectly legal.

    I'm just stating how corrupt our government is. MONEY > EVERYONE ON THE PLANET.
    What do you mean 'regulated how?' - you must be of a certain age, they're taxed separately, an establishment but be licensed to sell or serve, laws and regulations are written just for that . . . etc etc.

    That's the essence of regulation - regulations are written based on a problem or issue and sometimes it's different substance to substance - sometimes it's not.

    Anything that smells like that should be presumed to be completely unhealthy, and not consumed by anyone.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Parents sue Monster Beverage over girl's death

    HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) - The parents of a 14-year-old Hagerstown, Md. girl who died in December are suing the maker of Monster Energy Drink, claiming caffeine in the product contributed to her death.

    An autopsy found that Fournier died of cardiac arrhythmia due to caffeine toxicity that impeded her heart's ability to pump blood. She suffered from an inherited disorder that can weaken blood vessels.

    Over consumption of water has killed people to.
    Let's investigate!!
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    lol! this is true.

    if the FDA cared about things being healthy for you...then why are OREOs in stores? Sure they might not "kill" you right after you consume them, but did anyone say obese 5 year olds with diabetes? lol

    24 oz Monster Energy drinks are 1.5x the normal size of the regular Monster Energy drinks... and she drank two of them? One 16 oz gives me heart palpitations.

    What would little baby Jesus say if he heard you speaking like that?

    To think about 78% of the US population claims to be Christian and they dont even realise that Jesus Christ was a socialist

    Leave Monster alone... everyone should know taking high doses of caffeine and energy supplements can increase your risk of cardiac arrest, etc.
    It's sad, but why do we always have to blame something? **** happens! You could die any second from a condition you have no idea about right now and there is thousands of things contributing to your death RIGHT NOW all at the same time and you never know when the dice rolls the wrong way! There is nothing in monster, when not consuming more then what the can says, that would kill a normal healthy human being, but there is always a risk for everything.

    The same FDA that constantly misses severe bio toxins during factory inspections? The same FDA that constantly misses dosage problems in medications or flat out keeps drugs off the market with their R&D requirements and testing durations. That group of incompetents?
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
