Publication from the Newspaper Monster Energy gets sued after girl dies from the drink. Lawsuit by grieving family comes as officials investigate energy drink for reported link to five deaths

Death ... Anais Fournier died from a heart attack brought on by


'caffeine toxicityPublished: 23rd October 2012 AN energy drinks firm is being sued by the family of a 14-year-old girl who died after having two Monster Energy drinks. Anais Fournier suffered a heart attack brought on by “caffeine toxicity” after drinking two cans of the drink — described by its makers as a “killer energy brew”. The youngster, who had a disorder than can weaken blood vessels, died two days before Christmas last year after the beverage affected her heart’s ability to pump blood. Now her family is suing Monster Beverage Corp as the US Food and Drug Administration launched an investigation into the energy drink, which has reported links to five deaths and one non-fatal heart attack. The 24oz can of Monster Energy contains 240 milligrams of caffeine — three times as much as nearest rival Red Bull. Anais’s parents, from Hagerstown, Maryland, US, claim the company failed to warn consumers about the risk of drinking its products. Her mum Wendy Crossland said: “I was shocked to learn the FDA can regulate caffeine in a can of soda, but not these huge energy drinks. “With their bright colours and names like Monster, Rockstar, and Full Throttle, these drinks are targeting teenagers with no oversight or accountability.“These drinks are death traps for young, developing girls and boys, like my daughter.”


Research from the internet Energy ... Monster touts its drinks as a 'killer energy brew' Monster Beverage Corp, which dominates nearly 39 per cent of the US energy drinks market, saw shares tumble 16 per cent yesterday. Its website touts its Monster drinks as a “killer energy brew” and “the meanest energy supplement on the planet”.


Labels on Monster cans state the drink is not recommended for children and people who are sensitive to caffeine. Although the FDA is investigating allegations that Monster's heavily-caffeinated drinks caused adverse reactions, the agency said the reports do not prove that the drinks caused deaths or injuries. Spokeswoman Shelly Burgess said: "As with any reports of a death or injury the agency receives, we take them very seriously and investigate diligently.” Monster Beverage Corp said it does not believe its drinks are responsible for Anais’s death. In a statement, the company said: “Monster is unaware of any fatality anywhere that has been caused by its drinks.” Read more: http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/news/4605284/monster- energydrinks-sued-after-girl-dies.html#ixzz2NXRiOi7d Is Monster Energy Drink bad for you? Answer: Monster Energy Drink is one of the newer breed of soft drink that evolved after the colas, Pepsi and Coke, took over the market in the 1940's and 1950's. Over time, Pepsi and Coke were known as energy drinks but eventually acquired the undeserved appellation of "junk food". They aren't junk food -- they're just mostly providing carbohydrates and caffeine to the daily diet, and neither of these are inherently, always, bad for human health (like mercury would be, for instance). Nor are they in short supply in most consumers. However, in marketing terms, the damage was done and a whole new niche developed (actually a few did) -- Energy Drinks That Were Good For You. Quite a few manufacturers targeted products for this category, and for the youthful demographic. Monster Energy Drink is one of the less extreme of these. In terms of nutrients or anything the human body metabolizes that are supplied in Monster Energy Drink, the following are


roughly the list: Sugars -- simple and disaccharides__Vitamin supplements, notably B-complex arrays of vitamins, and Vitamin C. Taurine (a nonessential amino acid that may or may not have any discernible effects but is used in Red Bull too). Various herbs like Ginseng. None of the ingredients on the Monster Energy Drink List are particularly good or bad for you. While we need vitamins C and the B group in order to live, very few people with access to the Internet (e.g. in industrialized countries) are subject to diets that are deficient in C or B vitamins. Sugar is a calorie load, in the form of pure carbohydrates. You need calories to live, but you also don't need too many. Monster Energy Drink contains 27g of sugar (so 13.5g per serving -- two servings per can). Their "Low Carbohydrate" version contains only 3g of sugar per can (or 1.5g per 8oz. serving) -- not a lot at all. Caffeine is, for most people, a "wake-up" drug. In tests, it does seem to act as a general stimulant, irritant to the urinary tract, and cardiac stimulant too. But is this a bad thing? Depends on the dosage and on your personal health. At this time, no one I know of is saying caffeine is good for you. However, I don't think anyone has made the case that a healthy person consuming moderate amounts of caffeine is in any real risk. Hansen, the manufacturers of Monster Energy Drink, note that on a per oz. basis, their drink product contains less caffeine than coffee and perhaps as little as half the caffeine of some of the more serious coffee drinks available today. The drink does not "increase cellular regeneration" or "detoxify" you, nor does the Hansen company make any such claims. And to be honest, the term "detoxify" has no meaning in clinical health, although it has a Strong meaning in the world of marketing (and the meaning is "buy me Please"). So -- not too much sugar, if you can avoid drinking gallons of the stuff. Some vitamins that probably aren't necessary but don't hurt. Caffeine, which feels good and is pretty safe in the usual dosage. And a variety of other contents that are either biologically inactive or are herbs like Ginseng, the effects of which depend


on the plant, the plant's age, when it was harvested, where it was grown, and maybe 200 other factors that aren't tracked -- and are thus beyond the scope of this article. In summary, review of the contents of Monster Energy Drink shows nothing that, when consumed in reasonable dosage, is neither particularly harmful or helpful. Maybe it just tastes good?

As of May 2012, Monster held nearly 35% of the $31.9 billion energy drink market.[3 Overview Monster Beverage sells products in Australia, Brazil, Canada, Europe, Mexico and the United States.

As of December 31, 2011, Monster Beverage employed 1,900 employees, of which 1,047 were employed on a full-time basis.[4][dead link] [History Hansen's Natural Sodas have been a natural soda brand in Southern California for the past 30 years.[5] In the 1930s, Hubert Hansen and his three sons began selling juice to film studios and retailers in Southern California under the Hansen's name. In the 1970s, Tim Hansen (the grandson of Hubert) developed and marketed a variety of sodas and juices, also under the Hansen's label.[6] The company became Hansen's Juices, and later The Fresh Juice Company of California. The plant that was opened in Los Angeles in 1946 was used until operations were moved to a new plant in Azusa, California in 1993. The company filed for bankruptcy in 1988, and was acquired by the California CoPackers Corporation and renamed Hansen Beverage Company. In 1998, the company moved from Anaheim, California to Corona, California. On
January 5, 2012, shareholders agreed to change the name of the company from Hansen's Natural to Monster Beverage Corporation, under the new ticker MNST. Shareholders also approved an increase in the number of authorized shares of common stock to 240,000,000 shares from 120,000,000 shares.
