Nobody should consume heavy amounts of caffeine. There is ample data suggesting moderate amounts will not hurt.
Spike Shooter is dangerous to people because it contains Yohimbe. That is natures viagra. It will create increased blood flow and in tandem with the caffeine it could be dangerous to some people.
Should Spike be banned? No...Anybody could consume the same amount of Caffeine in coffee and have bad experiences.Read the warning label.
caffeine is not what makes this drink dangerous, it contains the equivalent of only two cups of coffee. I routinely drink four to five cups of coffee each morning and feel no I'll effects. One can of spike, on the other hand, made mad me terribly sick. Dizziness, lightheadedness, nausea, and an intense headache. I believe the cause of this to be the 33,000% recommended daily value of vitamin b12

sounds like kids are goetting sick all over and the company wont say whats in it so the doctors dont know how to treat the kids who are sick. what a perplexing predicament.
always,cookoo
well the company says exactly what is in it. They are not at fault. These kids ignore blatant warnings and irresponsibly used the product. They just nominated themselves for a goddamn Darwin award.

actually, it is the caffeine. or more of just a stimulant in general. They were children so their body could not tolerate the stimulants present in the drink. While a healthy adult body can tolerate them.
