Yep. If you drink too much water you can die from that too.

And what exactly in the energy drink do you think they died from? Caffeine overdose?

Although if you have heart problems and you're not used to caffeine, you could die a lot easier - that's why in Canada energy drinks tell you not to drink more than a certain amount.

If you want to be wired, make some strong coffee, it's cheaper and more effective.

Heh: "Gulp down 56.73 cans of Relentless and you're history."

I would probably drown first from the sheer volume of liquid I'd be consuming (about 28 and a bit litres).

They speed up your heart and take water from your body so you can have heart failure or become dehydrated.

Dehydration is the biggest risk.

its a proven fact that the stimulants speed your heart out of control and kill you. so yeah drink 8 cans of it if you want to have a painful death

Red Bull tastes like battery acid. So my guess would be, too much could kill you.

8 cans of what?

I'd like you to show me the evidence you have that drinking a certain number of energy drinks will kill you in a way that doesn't involve drowning from the amount of liquid you take in, or caffeine overdosing (which can take between 50 and 100 cans of whatever drink you have, or even 193 cups of tea). Even then, these drinks all have to be consumed within a few hours so the excess chemicals don't pass through the body.

How about, you try drinking lots of energy drinks tonight? Then if you're still alive you can post tomorrow and let us all know if it's true or not.

Gulp down 179.16 cans of Red Bull and you're history.
You could drink 57.33 bottles of Redline RTD before croaking.
You could drink 100.93 cans of Amp Overdrive before croaking.
143.32 cans of AriZona Extreme Energy Shot + You = Death.
It would take 186.14 shots of Espresso to put you down.


I think I'll be ok.

Right on that site about energy drinks, too. A reported death from caffeine.



What a retard, who with any sense of mental stability would take two dozen tablets of anything? It said there that it was equivalent of 4800mg of caffeine. It would take 60 cans of Red Bull to reach that level, which would be 15litres of fluid consumed. The probability of drowning before ODing is still quite high.

Sorry, but some 14 (sorry 15) year old isn't enough cited proof.

I've had 3 of those big redbull cans in a few hours and I didn't die. I just got really really really really really really hyper, then I got tired and went to sleep. But if you don't want to use energy drinks, just drink a lot of tea.

There are some people who can grow a tolerance to it, so sometimes it can just get u flyin off the walls, some people are so tolerant to it, it doesn't even do anything for them ...but only if u've been drinkingenergy drinks for a loooong time, and if u have been lucky enough and have a strong enough heart to not have heart failure after drinking them everyday...honestly I just drink 3 at most a day...Monster and red bull are like suuuuuper acidic, so after like 4 my throat like burns really bad, but if thats the risk ur willing to take...go for it

Nope I had been drinking pop during the day once then in the evening I was pulling an all nigher so I had a rockstar and I could feel my heart beating faster and I got sick all of a sudden, so it's very possible I think for you to die from too many energy drinks.

I drink them though after a while it's hard to pull a 12 hour shift without them. I tried a tab today and didn't like it.
