Energy drinks remain popular today, especially among chronically fatigued and young people looking for a quick energy boost. But drinks with such high levels of caffeine as Monster Energy and Red Bull are involved accusations of wrongful death increasingly because these drinks typically contain caffeine levels up to 14 times higher than a regular cup of coffee, these drinks can cause potentially fatal health problems.
These drinks are dangerous and, as we mention above, 14 times higher than a cup of coffee. Yes, it does supply a burst of energy. But at what costs. As a younger person do you want heart damage in 20 years. Do you want to do damage possibly that can take many years of your life in the later years and have heart failure at 50?
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has been receiving more and more reports about energy drinks that cause severe injury and death, including the report now being circulated of a 14-year-old girl who died not long after drank two cans of Monster Energy over 24 hours. The child’s parents say the drinks were responsible for deactivating cardiac arrhythmia due to caffeine toxicity, which the company denies.
