    News of the FDA's investigation follows the launch of a wrongful death lawsuit in California, by the parents of a 14-year-old Maryland girl who died after drinking two Monster Energy Drinks in just 24 hours.

    A post mortem examination found that Anais Fournier died of cardiac arrhythmia due to caffeine toxicity that impeded her heart's ability to pump blood.

    She also suffered from an inherited disorder that can weaken blood vessels. Her parents claim Monster failed to warn about the risks of drinking its products.

    If stupid people with heart conditions are going to drink things with loads of caffine in...

    And it isn't Monster's job to teach their kids too much caffine is bad. Why didn't the parent say anything? Even something in general, along the lines of "you have a heart condition. You can't drink that stuff."

    [Also, I swear they're age restricted in this country.]

    I guess when I drank 6 in 2 hours i was dicing with death!!


    I dont think they are age restricted as ive seen plenty of kids (younger than teenagers) drinking them.

    I guess it all comes down to an active and healthy lifestyle. As we all know that fizzy drinks are bad for us!

    Red Bull + Vodka.


    I have no clue why people drink it.

    Red Bull speeds up your heart, alcohol [IIRC] slows it down.

    I was on about the one I posted. The left half is science[!] the right half is ads.

    One energy drink every now and then when a boost is needed isn't going to have a dire effect. Lots of energy drinks all the time especially people with heart conditions etc it will harm you.

    The kids here are obsessed with energy drinks. We even had an enterprising student who was getting his father to buy from the local cash & carry so he could sell them in school. If people want to rot their teeth and waste their money then it's a free country.

    You are asking people to have common sense?

    Energy drinks here are banned for the kids - they are confiscated. My nephew (13) sometimes drinks them but he is a normal healthy lad with no conditions. Everyone knows they are energy drinks and not fruit juice...

    We have staff here who seem to live on the stupid things - teaching and non-teaching. Not even remotely sporty types either which is what you might expect.

    I'm 24. I'm still young enough to be naive about the levels of idiocy in the world.
