So what do we do with this disparate & superficial data? First, let's not jump to any conclusions. While reports of injury to the FDA greatly underestimate the danger of any given drug or device, we still don't have any proof that energy drinks caused these 5 deaths. And while any death is tragic and it's easy for me to parent from afar, this article does make me question what my 13yo drinks in any given day - hopefully not 48 ounces of high fructose corn syrup laden with 480mg of caffeine!
Rather than my usual, I think I'm going to have an ice coffee the next time I stop by Starbucks. Follow @alvinblin
