A partial quote from an article in Time Health & Family by Olivia B. Waxman:


 The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) confirmed on Wednesday to the New York Times that the agency has received 13 reports of deaths potentially linked to the high-energy drink 5-Hour Energy in the last four years. Health officials have been raising the alarm over energy drinks for their caffeine content, not all of which is accurately listed on the product, and the lack of regulation over the beverages. Because they are considered a dietary supplement, the drinks aren't subject to the same strict regulations established by the FDA that govern foods.

13 deaths seems acceptable.

Any drink that revs a person up like that is dangerous......it should be common sense to know that........don't need any health report to make it official.....the human heart was not meant to be treated like that.....I would never ever touch one of those, even though they are a Nascar sponsor.
