Undisclosed Dangers of Energy Drinks
Ever since energy drinks gained popularity years ago, they have always been touted as safe, effective methods of gaining a boost of energy in the morning or the afternoon. Some brands even encouraged users to replace sleep with an energy drink or to have multiple beverages a day. While bragging and clever advertising was abound, warning labels were and are quite rare.
Energy drinks are heavily-laden with caffeine, sometimes much more than in a cup of coffee; the natural supplements, such as taurine and ginseng are always not understood on a pharmaceutical level, so the extent of their safety is questionable. In the end, there have been multiple reports, especially in recent years, of serious illnesses occurring due to frequent consumption of energy drinks. The majority of incidents involve college and university students under the age of 29 who have taken up an energy drink regiment to keep them awake throughout their rigorous days.
Injuries and illnesses related to heavy energy drink consumption includes:
- Irregular heart palpitations
- Cardiac arrest
- Fainting spells
- Extreme nausea
All of these symptoms are synonymous with those caused by caffeine overdose. It is therefore believed that energy drinks contain an unsafe amount of caffeine for how they are advertised.
Create a Lawsuit or Join a Mass Tort
In product liability cases, a conclusion can be reached through an individual civil case if the circumstances seem unique. If the symptoms and illness that harmed you is similar to that of other energy drink consumers, you may wish to file or join a mass tort, which compiles several lawsuits together to simplify litigation. Talk to our Salisbury personal injury attorney today to determine which option is best for your case.
