    And the sad thing is that people have figured out how to get high off of abusing H2O. People are constantly asking for more government intervention and the result seems to be a less competent overall society. We've gotten to the point that people will trust anything with an FDA stamp even if it smells rotten and looks like it's been rotting for a decade, meanwhile they gloss over the gross incompetence during that agencies history and egregious ****ups.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    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.
    You are exactly right. I was doing my boxing cardio today, for all I know I could have had an arterial dissection forming or an aneurism and had that been the case I would never have known, with the strain I would be dead before hitting the ground. Life is kind of funny in that it's temporary at any duration, sad but true.

    And?
    Does her choice to drink two somehow make the manufacturer responsible?

    Energy Drinks are not.
    These people are drinking massive doses of caffeine....It is self-medication...


    It sure doesn't smell like anything I'd want to drink..

    Yes - so -- this changes something?

    knowing the ingredients - I highly doubt that the caffeine alone was the sole culprit in these deaths. Which will be found out during the FDA's investigation. Caffeine is only just one stimulant in them - and they all affect the body in different ways.

    For years now I've been watching the younger folks chugging those "energy drinks" down by the six-pack like they were sodas.... and shaking my head and saying "when you're my age, your heart is going to be worn out like an overwound spring... if you live that long."

    You didn't read the thread? I don't see the point in reposting what is already posted when all you have to do is take a short amount of time and read through it all and find what you asked.
