    Out of how many people actually using the product? This seems like sensationalism.

    "Mentioned in 90 filings" doesn't cause me any great alarm. Heart disease and obesity kill millions, but nobody's screaming to get sugar, fat and sodium off the shelves. I'll keep using it in moderation, like everything.

    The phrase "correlation =/= causation" comes to mind.

    Then again, there doesn't seem to be much correlation either.

    I'm not concerned about it. I've been working graveyard hours for years, energy drinks are pretty much a requirement for me lol.

    Science experiment time. I wonder how many energy drinks a small animal can drink before it dies.

    Something tells me some of these heart attack cases came from people who regularly knocked back two 5 Hour Energy shots twice or thrice a day, rather than the average customer who has one in the morning before work.

    reminds me of the teenage waitress overdosed on caffeine after drinking 14 shots of espresso and could hardly breathe. She was taken to hospital with a high temperature and heart palpitations.

    She had drunk almost three times the recommended daily amount of caffeine in just four hours.

    People really should read the damn label on stuff or just use common sense before they take things

    5-hour Energy can make a mint now selling this stuff in states with parental consent laws.

    That does seem likely. I guess the woman decided to ignore the warning label

    Would people be allowed to purchase Abortion drinks at a convenience store?

    Too late. There's a punk band in Canada called The Day Glo Abortions and another band called Me, Mom and Morgentaler (Morgentaler was the doctor who was largely responsible for having abortion legalized in Canada).

    "Honey, I don't see why you're upset. You're the one who keeps saying we need to be more spontaneous."

    I don't care too much for energy drinks. I'll have one every now and then.

    I'd hate to imagine it any other way.
