Are Five Deaths Linked to Monster Energy Drinks?

"Unleash the beast!" – this is the motto Monster Energy has used over the years, promising "twice the buzz of a regular energy drink". Unfortunately, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is currently investigating the maker this popular energy drink after the highly caffeinated beverage was cited in five deaths and one non-fatal heart attack.

The six incidents of adverse effects related to Monster Energy drinks were reported over an eight year period, beginning in 2004. The FDA says that it is not yet clear whether the drinks actually caused or even contributed to the reported deaths and heart attack.

However, the parents of one of the victims have filed a wrongful death suit against the drink's manufacturer, Monster Beverage Corporation. An autopsy report attributed the victim's death to cardiac arrhythmia due to caffeine toxicity.

A typical 24-ounce Monster Energy drink contains 240 mg of caffeine, the equivalent of two strong cups of coffee.
