Monster Engergy Drink Sued For Caffeine Overdose

Monster energy drinks are sold in 24 ounce cans and contain 7 times the amount of caffeine in 12 ounce colas.  The FDA allows soda to contain 71 miligrams of caffeine per 12 ounces to be safe however, energy drink manufacturer’s are not bound by the FDA caffeine guidelines since their drinks are sold as diet supplements.  Most Significant, the Monster drinks contain a Warning Label which says “NOT RECOMMENDED FOR CHILDREN AND PEOPLE WHO ARE SENSATIVE TO CAFFEINE.”  14 year old Anais Fournier allegedly drank 2 Monster energy drinks in a 24 hour period and died due to “cardiac arrhythmia due to caffeine toxicity.”  The parents have sued Monster and Monster has advised they will vigorously litigate this one.  The FDA is considering putting caffeine limits on makers of energy drinks based on data showing since 2004 there have been 5 deaths and 37 adverse reactions to Monster drinks.   Parents have a loser case here and Monster will prevail.  Parents should have sued the FDA.

    With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or
    copyright violation? My site has a lot of unique content
    I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my permission. Do you know any techniques to help prevent content from being ripped off? I’d definitely
    appreciate it.

    I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and
    amusing, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head.
    The issue is something too few people are speaking intelligently
    about. I am very happy I came across this in my search for something regarding this.
