Man consume 25 cans of energy drinks and suffered brain haemorrhage

energy drink

According to a media article, a 56-year-old father of three almost die after consuming a mixture of 25 cans of Monster and Red Bull, in six hours.

Apparently, he his complaining that the drinks almost killed him and they should not be sold, in fact, they should be banned.

I do not understand why he would want these energy drinks to be banned. He needs to take responsibility for his actions, no one opened his mouth and force him to gulp down 25 cans of energy drinks.

Commonsense would suggest that an individual consuming that amount of energy drinks in six hours may cause a health problem. There is nowhere on any of the cans where it is, recommended an individual should consume 25 cans of energy drink in six hours.

If he says he his telling the story so that others are aware that consuming a lot of energy drinks in a short period can be detrimental to your health, I am ok with that. If however, is aim is to blame the energy company I disagree.

As far as I am aware most people know that energy drinks contain caffeine, according to the article he surpassed the daily recommended amount of caffeine one hour into his binge.

I am pleased he lived to tell his story and to warn anyone who potentially believes it is a good idea to consume 25 cans of energy drinks in six hours. If he still has some medical issues as a result of his foolhardiness then, unfortunately, he has to live with them.
