I’ll stick to coffee, I think it’s good for you this week. Next week, who knows?
I wonder how Clint Bowyer feeels driving the 5-hour energy race car in nascar. a ride is a ride I reckun. He sure got spontaneously aborted by Jeff Gordon last week-end at Phoenix.
First they came for the ephedrine...
Most dietary supplements are full of crap. Stick to good food and you don’t need to supp.
They’re sold all over military bases.
What’s even worse is that “nobody really knows what’s going on...” about a whole lot more then 5-hr energy nowadys.
Putting a “This S-— can kill you, Yo!” on the bottle would probably boost sales.
What about Brawndo?
Spontaneous abortions? Oh great. Just one more thing single females are going to want for free.
Things aren’t always as they’re reported to be. I wouldn’t be surprised to find that the reason these products “cause” heart attacks and spontaneous abortions is that the people using them aren’t getting enough rest and/or sleep.
Take a high dose B-Complex capsule and wash it down with a double espresso plus 5 sugars for a similar (and cheaper) effect
Honestly..those numbers aren’t that high. If 5 hour energy commercials are accurate and there are five million users per week, those numbers of deaths don’t really make statistical significance except to trial lawyers looking for another corporation to steal from.
Let the lawsuits begin! There’s a ton of corrupt lawyers out there drooling over the money they will make from suing a company when people abuse their product.
“Spontaneous abortions”...or, as Democrats call it, “clearing up an infection.”
Strenuous exercise also gives you energy, but can result in death also. Let’s ban SOMETHING already!
Can’t imagine why anyone would use that crap anyway.
I’d better stock up on the 5-hour before someone saves me from myself!
Can't afford any of them now.
never touch the stuff.
A lot of variables left uncovered here, such as how many shots were consumed daily (the drink recommends no more than one), the health of the consumers, what was consumed along with it, the diet of the consumer. Vitamin B overdose, for example, can lead to serious consequences. But the key is overdose.
This seems, so far, alarmism similar to alar, caffeine, eggs, oat bran, meat, and all the rest. Why do I get the impression that huge lawyer paydays are an issue here, and someone is helping them along?
The manufacturers look like awfully deep pockets, and the caution about overconsumption will probably work against them in the hands of greedy ATLA members, sorry for the redundancy.
I’ve never used any of the energy drinks and don’t plan to, but thirteen deaths over four years is not much evidence from the many millions of doses of these prodcts that have been used.
