Death Wish Coffee Dubbed 'World's Strongest,' Has Twice the Caffeine
More caffeine than an energy drink and only $20 per pound! That's one wicked brew!

Controversial caffeinated drinks
Anything with caffeine in it probably isn't good for you. It's quick energy, but it comes at a price. It takes a toll on your body. As for the other vitamins, minerals, and amino acids, they may be good for you, but they don't offset the damage done by the caffeine. And then there's the sugar content of some of these drinks...

I've never tried any of the energy drinks. Taurine is the main effective ingredient in them besides caffeine. You can buy taurine really cheap on ebay and make your own custom energy drinks with nothing but healthy stuff. I am using magnesium taurate which is about 90 percent taurine and am going to try adding some taurine because I believe I can benefit from more taurine. I would be getting too much magnesium by taking strictly magnesium taurate. Besides it's pretty expensive.

20 dollars a pound for coffee? You can buy pure caffeine for less than that! (Something I would never actually do.)

No, You're Not Addicted to Caffeine, but These Bacteria Are
Some scientists created new strain of E. coli to study the effects of caffeine. :upset:

Caffeine Withdrawal - Now A Mental Disorder?
It's all about making money. Create a disorder and increase demand for some drug or service. The people who define the new disorders almost always have financial ties to pharmaceutical companies. How interesting...

Energy drink companies pressured to change marketing
This guy speaks really slowly and that's kind of annoying. It's almost like he's trying to waste time so that he can avoid answering the difficult questions!

Craze Sports Supplement Reportedly Contains Meth-Like Compound
Talk about free advertising! This is the best commercial a product like this could possibly have. Hardcore jocks will steer away from it, but all the halfwits out for a cheap thrill will be buying up this stuff like crazy!
