Monster "Energy" Drink WARNINGS!

FDA: 5 reported deaths with Monster drink link

U.S. probes deaths for links to Monster energy drink

Deaths Allegedly Linked to Monster Energy Drinks Are a PR Nightmare

Five-Hour Energy Linked to Heart Attacks, 'Spontaneous Abortion'

You know those little vials of who-knows-what that TV bills as a healthier alternative to energy drinks. Turns out they might make you die. Or to be more specific, the flavored energy shot "has been mentioned in some 90 filings with the F.D.A., including more than 30 that involved serious or life-threatening injuries like heart attacks, convulsions and, in one case, a spontaneous abortion," according to a New York Times investigation.

Don't worry, 5-Hour Energy fans, Monster Energy drink is a culprit, too. Following a review of FDA records, The Times found that 5-Hour Energy was implicated in at least 13 deaths over the last four years, while Monster was cited in five deaths in a review last month. Both the paper and the FDA are careful to point out that correlation does not equal causation in these horrifying examples of pick-me-ups gone wrong. Nevertheless, we're pretty sure coffee will remain our stimulant of choice for the foreseeable future.

The scariest thing about the Times report isn't necessarily the threat of heart attack or spontaneous abortion. It's the fact that nobody really knows what's going on with energy drinks -- or in 5-Hour Energy's case "dietary supplements" -- that become implicated in fatalities. Even scarier, is that the companies making these potions know that it's happening. Evil or Very Mad  They're required by federal law to report cases that link their products to fatalities to the FDA. They don't want to talk about it either. "I am not interested in making any comment," Manoj Bhargava, the chief executive of Living Essentials, the company that makes 5-Hour Energy. (Go ahead and let the irony of that company name sink in.)

We're immediately reminded of the Four Loko debacle from a couple of years back. In case you forgot, some brilliant product team decided that it would be a good idea to take all of the ingredients in your standard energy drink -- caffeine, taurine, B vitamins -- and mix it with high proof malt liquor and sell it for about two bucks a can. Fast forward a few months later, and people were dead after drinking the stuff, a horrible turn of events that eventually caused the government to ban the formula. It was eventually re-released without all of the energy additives. Fast forward a few more months later, and America figured out a way to bring back to old upper-downer specialty cocktail. Just drop a 5-Hour Energy into a can of Four Loko and BOOM! You've got yourself an evening of fun. Or heart attacks.

So maybe 5-Hour Energy is the cause of those grizzly sounding deaths, and maybe it isn't. Either way, we've seen this chain of events before. Somebody like The Times spots the correlation. Some government agency conducts an investigation, maybe banning some things even though that won't bring the victims back from the dead. And, inevitably, nobody wins.

Long Island Counties Moving Toward Enacting Energy Drink Drinking Age

Suffolk Inching Closer To Legislation That Would Create A Purchase Age Of 19


Long Island is buzzing about energy drinks. A proposed law would ban sales to teenagers because of its caffeine kick.

But as CBS 2’s Carolyn Gusoff reported on Friday, not everyone wants to put a lid on the popular products.

They’ve been the subject of much debate, and now energy drinks are in the cross hairs of health officials in Nassau and Suffolk counties. Even as the Food and Drug Administration looks into their safety, energy drinks, which are loaded with sugar, caffeine and other stimulants, are as popular as ever among teens.

Even as the Food and Drug Administration looks into their safety, energy drinks, which are loaded with sugar, caffeine and other stimulants, are as popular as ever among teens.

It seems like the NWO minions love to market some of their draconian agendas toward teens - remember the "Scream" horror movies in the 90's?

20K ER Visits Linked to Energy Drinks


A new government study is calling popular energy drinks "a rising public health problem" that is sending more and more people to the emergency rooms.

The study, from a survey of U.S. hospitals by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, said that the number of emergency-room visits linked to energy drinks had doubled in four years - from 10,000 in 2007 to 20,000 in 2011.

And of those 20,000 ER visits in 2011, 42 percent had mixed the energy drink with another stimulant such as Adderal or Ritalin or with alcohol. Fifty-eight percent had consumed just the drink.

Dr. Allen Taylor, chief of the cardiology division at Georgetown University Hospital, explained what could happen to some people when they consume an energy drink.

"Blood pressure goes up. Heart rate goes up and then they'll start to feel the effects," Taylor said. "Heart racing, heart skipping, panic-attack symptoms. Irregular heart symptoms and worse."

Taylor said that energy drinks also contained other substances that are "completely unregulated" and can add to the stimulant nature of the drink.

The American Beverage Association, the industry trade association, told ABC News today that the drinks were safe and denounced the hospital study, saying the limited information makes it "impossible to understand the actual role - if any - of energy drinks in these hospital visits."

The group also pointed out that "mainstream energy drinks contain about half the caffeine of a similar size cup of coffeehouse coffee."

The Food and Drug Administration is looking at this new study.

"We will examine this information to determine whether it can be used to assess whether energy-drink products can be legitimately linked to the types of adverse events reported in the … data," an FDA spokesman said.

Energy drinks brace for caffeine crash


In October, parents from Maryland filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Monster Beverage Corp. after their 14-year-old daughter died of cardiac arrest. She had reportedly consumed two 24-ounce cans of Monster Energy within a 24-hour period. In mid-November, the FDA opened an investigation into 5-Hour Energy to determine if the energy shot was linked to a reported 13 deaths over the past four years.

Could an FDA investigation mean the beginning of the end for energy drink makers, whose products are full of caffeine but lack regulation? An FDA letter written to Sen. **** Durbin (D-IL) confirmed that the agency is taking "science-based actions" in order to determine the possible risks associated with energy drinks, which are often consumed by teenagers and young adults. The letter, a late-November response to Durbin's expressed concern over energy drinks, says the FDA will consider requiring product labels to advertise caffeine content as well as warnings about possible effects. Federal laws do not currently require labels to carry actual caffeine content or warnings about possible negative effects.

But in regulating an industry that survives by jolting users to increase energy, the FDA appears to be dragging its feet. The amount of research that has been done on energy drink use is far from sufficient, says Dr. Byron Lee, M.D., a cardiologist and professor at the University of California, San Francisco School of Medicine. Even with a "recommended dose" people drink too much, or mix it with alcohol. (Vodka Redbull anyone?) Preexisting health conditions—heart trouble in particular—can quickly become fatal with a sudden rush of caffeine, added Lee. This problem is particularly pertinent among young adults; a 2011 study published by the journal Pediatrics found that 46% of the nearly 5,500 caffeine overdoses in 2007 occurred in people younger than 19 years old.

Many energy drinks compare their caffeine levels to that of a cup of coffee, though the statistic can be misleading. A recent study from Consumer Reports found that 8-oz energy drinks like Monster (MNST) (92 mg of caffeine) and Red Bull (83 mg) were comparable in caffeine levels to a typical 8-oz cup of coffee (100 mg), but cans often come in much larger sizes, like Monster's 24-ounce can. 5-Hour Energy, which does not classify itself as an energy drink, but rather a dietary supplement, came in at 215 mg of caffeine for a 1.9-oz shot. Of the 16 products tested that did include caffeine content on labels, five of them contained 20% more caffeine per serving than advertised.


Green energy drinks are not only used by the people who needs it but can be used by every person who wants the perfect day.
