Monster Says There’s No Proof Caffeine Killed Teen Girl

Last year, a woman in Maryland sued Monster Beverage, alleging that the energy drink caused her 14-year-old daughter to die of caffeine toxicity. However, the Monster folks claim this allegation can’t be proven because the medical examiner did not test the teen’s blood.
The lawsuit states that the teenager went into cardiac arrest after drinking two, 24-ounce cans of Monster during one 24-hour period. But alawyer for the beverage company tells the APthat physicians hired to review the medical records say the young woman died of natural causes brought on by pre-existing heart conditions, and that the caffeine toxicity claim on the autopsy was based on statements made by the girl’s mother.

Some people simply lack the good health necessary to live a full life,plain and simple.9:25 is exactly right.The parents should be responsible for lawyers fees,but when they sign the "we don't get paid until you get paid" clause that attorneys offer they have excluded themselves from financial liability.On the other hand that makes the attorneys work twice as hard to win the case.

Keep your teens away from stimulants. By allowing it you begin a cycle of looking outside of yourself for the strength and energy to accomplish your life.
