How old were these people??? And how healthy? Were they overweight? Other health problems etc etc????? I see people drinking them like crazy and no one is dying or any reports on that happening.

"were they overweight?"

You are a weight snob, get over it. It's pretty repetitive.

These people were over thirty... One guy was dating a very young girl.. and we teased that she gave him a heart attack.
'
But my brother in law and I, helped him move, and his whole fridge was still filled with fifty of these drinks..
'
I guess he was trying to keep up with the YUNGINS.. I have tried them . But they have the tendency to ''stop my pee''?? So I got rid of them..
'
Believe it or not, the people that I know of ,worked every day and were'nt overweight..
'
But they ALL were found to have lots of empty bottles and cans of these drinks everywhere, to help them work.. and scrape a living..
'
I know that we all like certain RUSHES. I just want to somehow encourage us all to use more moderation.. I mean, a person can just get so high..
'
We drink one beer today.. Two tomorrow.. Then six.. then we drink just to be level where we was when we first started....
'
That is all.. Try to balance....(I know, I am one to talk. But I am trying also..)

I firmly believe in moderation especially when it comes to food, and drink.

Thanks for answering my question like a mature adult. Instead of remarks like some fools.

Hey T bow!

I totally agree with you, some of the caffeine doses in those drinks is over 1200mg..like 20 cups all at once, I can not believe that it is healthy for anyone, but the issue I have is they market them toward kids, call em names like 'cocaine'..yea, they are a power boost alright, they boost the cash flow for some idiot while kids buy them up at 2 to 4 bucks a shot, talk about how much per gallon, those things are like a penny worth of chemicals and water..yeah, I'll run right down and pick some up...lol
People can be lured into some pretty stupid stuff...Thanks for putting this thread up, you are very right to say they are not good for you.

I just recently saw a report in the "energy drink craze" Apparantly several of the companies were under investigation for wrongful death. The ingredient lists were wrong, etc. You might try to google it, there were some class action lawsuits that were getting started.

The "craze" has absolutely nothing to do with being overweight by the way, its an ENERGY drink.
People drink these like water to keep their ENERGY level up, and some took it to the extreme. They are suppose to have warning labels about excessive caffiene, etc., on them but this was part of the problem. A lot of the companies didn't do that and didn't list the amount of caffiene and other stimulants.

The kids are really into them, they are legal, you know? Both of my sons used to drink them and had heart paplatations, so neither will drink them now, my youngest will take NO caffiene. I've never drank one, they don't smell too good to me.

Sorry for your losses.

That is terrible isn't it, and strange thing to die from, but sometimes people die from the strangest things, where as others are not bothered by it.
I have never tried an energy drink, don't need one. Hell I barely finish a cup of coffee in the morning. Could you imagine idiots that drink pop. Killing the innards. But in some cases who cares.

Makes you not want to drink one huh. I have heard of people mixing booze with these drinks, loco. That is just what we need a drunk that has energy. He would not know whether to shit or wind his watch that is for sure.
