    IMO, if he drank the same amount of caffeine routinely, the lack of sleep alone would've contributed to health/cardiovascular problems.

    I work with a nephrologist and one of the first things she told me was a story about a patient who destroyed his kidneys by drinking energy drinks. She says they should be illegal and I agree with her.

    I definitely think there should be an age requirement to buy energy drinks. 18 years old MINIMUM.
