When you have 7 billion people on a planet there are bound to be people like this with crazy ideas. I have 1 can of Rockstar on the weekend and that makes me feel jittery - I can't imagine consuming any more than that.

After years of shift work, I've built up a huge tolerance for over-the-counter stimulants, but 14 cans a day? Madness. There's not a physician on the planet who would be okay with that, most say more than 1 energy drink in a day is too much.

It looks like she had plenty of warning signs... She's not a candidate for the Darwin Awards since she passed on her genes...

You would have to be crazy to drink 14 cans of that stuff a day. It even says on the can not to consume more than one per day.

Stupid people doing stupid things! She will probably get a lawyer to go into litigation against Red Bull.

I hope you aren't suggesting that her drinking 14 Red Bulls per day was just a coincidence.

To a heart attack? I have very serious doubts that has anything to do with it. If it did, Tim's customers would probably be dropping dead all over the place.

Well, bsenka is correct in that the non-caffiene ingredients of energy drinks like Red Bull are not present in sufficient quantities (even after 12) to cause health problems. It was almost certainly the caffiene that did her in, combined with an extremely poor (starvation) diet, over an extended period of time.
