Back in 2012 and 2013 there was a lot of discussion on whether so-called "energy drinks" could be dangerous, particularly to minors. (For my posts on the subject go here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here and here.
The issue is now back in the news because, as reported in AboutLawsuits.com, "a group of five new lawsuits have been filed over side effects of Monster energy drinks, alleging that the products caused plaintiffs to suffer heart attacks, strokes, kidney failure and other injuries.
The complaints were filed earlier this week in Florida, involving individuals between the ages of 14 and 42, who suffered Monster energy drink injuries." For more details go here.
