Just 2 Cans A Day Of Monster Energy Drink Can Kill. Avoid At All Cost!

This article is open source and was originally published by Organic and Healthy

These days teenagers are targeted by energy drink companies as a replacement for alcohol, to trick them into thinking they are consuming “adult” drinks.

These drinks are filled with higher than legal-set levels, of toxic chemicals that is detrimental to body health. Energy drinks are next to multivitamins in popularity amongst American teenagers and young adults. 
Research into this had found that men between 18-34 had consumed the most energy drinks, and a third of teenagers between 12-17 consume them daily in excess. In the years from 2007-2011, energy drink-related emergency room visits increased, and people over 40 experienced the highest increase.

A dangerous trend has grown amongst teenagers drinking energy drinks with alcohol. College students were found to do this as well. In fact, 25 percent of students in college consumed the dangerous mix, and binge-drink frequently than students who don’t mix alcohol with energy drinks.

42 percent of energy drink related emergency room visits had a combination of drugs or alcohol (involving Adderall, marijuana and Ritalin). Over 5,000 cases were reported to poison control, in 2014, after becoming sick from consuming energy drinks. The American Heart Association reported that the cases were labeled as “accidental ingestions”, that involved severe side effects such as, high blood pressure, irregular heart rhythm or seizures.

LAWSUITS AGAINST MONSTER BEVERAGE CORP

Stage 4 Kidney Disease

 Robert Grim, a resident of Arizona, was traveling to work one morning in December 2014, until he started to feel nauseous. He immediately pulled over and called his employer to call out of work. When he arrived at home, his symptoms started to gradually worsen. He went to the ER and found out that he had stage 4 kidney disease.

In the lawsuit filed against Monster Energy, Grim claimed that he drank a can of monster energy that day, as he usually would every day for a decade. Before he was given the shocking diagnosis, Grim was chugging 4 monster’s a day (equal to eighteen 12 oz cans of Coca-Cola). From his excessive consumption of Monster energy drinks, he is now waiting for a kidney transplant, while undergoing dialysis.

Died From Cardiac Arrhythmia

In 2013, Paula Morris, from California, sued Monster when her 19 year old son, Alex, died from cardiac arrhythmia. She alleged in the case, that Alex drank two cans of the energy drink daily for three years, and on the day he passed away.

Cardiac Arrest Leading To Death

 In 2012, a resident from Maryland, 14-year old Anais Fournier died from cardiac arrest due to the excessive amounts of caffeine inside the energy drink. That’s what her family argues, is the cause of her death.

They claim, the girl had a heart condition, and after consuming two 24oz cans of monster energy drink, went into cardiac arrest within 24 hours of ingestion. Her autopsy discovered that she had a high level of caffeine toxicity in her blood that hindered the heart’s ability to pump blood, CBS reports.

Collapsed From a Stroke

 14-year old John Staten, of West Virginia, drank a can of monster while getting warmed up for football and wrestling practice. The lawsuit stated that one day in February 2012, John fell to the ground due to his left side being numb and he even had trouble speaking complete sentences.

When John went to the ER, doctors overlooked his symptoms and condition, and said it was a pinched nerve because of his age. A few days later, John underwent an MRI where his pediatrician discovered that he had a stroke, according to court documents.

The boy consumed 3 24oz cans of Monster in the duration of three months, which equals up to 21 12oz cans of Coca-Cola. If you do your research, you will find lots of lawsuits against Monster!

FOURTEEN DANGERS OF REGULARLY DRINKING ENERGY DRINKS

 The reason these energy drinks are so favored by kids, is due to the energy boost and high sugar content. These products appeal to young consumers because they aren’t old enough to consume alcohol, and they aren’t well-educated about nutrition and the dangers of frequently consuming energy drinks.

It is becoming common that minors under the age of 18, are suffering from harsh side effects from energy drink consumption.

Here’s a few dangers associated with the daily consumption of energy drinks:

  • Drug interaction
  • Headaches and migraines
  • High blood pressure
  • Increased anxiety
  • Insomnia
  • Jitters and nervousness
  • Niacin overdose
  • Risky and violent behavior
  • Vomiting
  • Addiction
  • Adrenalin release
  • Allergic reactions
  • Cardiac arrest
  • Diabetes type 2

COCKTAIL OF DEATH IN MONSTER ENERGY DRINKS

 These energy drinks, even though they deliver a boost in energy and alertness, they are dangerously unfit for daily consumption.

Too Much Glucose (Sugar)

Monster’s primary ingredient is glucose (sugar), as a 12oz can is filled with 38 grams of sugar. If you consume an excessive amount of sugar, which is in energy drinks and sodas in toxic levels, you will suffer serious side effects. When consumed in moderation, glucose can act as a fuel for cellular function in the body.

When your body is jammed up, glucose can work as a deteriorating agent that works to destroy the cells ability to produce insulin. The pancreas suffers extensive damage when it has to make up for the high levels of insulin. Glucose, in excessive amounts, can lead to the hardening of your blood vessels (Atherosclerosis).

Stress even can cause lots of damage to blood vessels and organs. Damage occurs quickly once mixed with other toxins in our bodies, due to a diet in high-fat and processed foods.

Too High In Artificial Stimulants—Caffeine and Guarana Seed Extract

 Caffeine and Guarana Seed Extract are artificial stimulants. Energy drinks like Monster have very high levels of artificial stimulants. One 12oz can of Monster has 120mg of caffeine, which equals to 600% more caffeine than a can of Pepsi or Coke. Drinking this toxic combination can be very deadly for a teenager.

Drinking one can of Monster alone can surpass the body recommended daily value for sugar. It can lead to anxiety, extreme irritability that may turn into violent behavior, insomnia, dizziness, nausea, headaches, tremors, and abdominal pain.

Adults that have consume high levels of artificial stimulants can lead to increased urination causing dehydration, stroke, death, high blood pressure, heart palpitations, gastrointestinal disturbance, dizziness, irritability, nervousness, headache and severe fatigue from withdrawal, and allergic reactions.

Panax Ginseng Root Extract

Monster energy drinks have 400mg of this toxin of a stimulant, in a 12oz can. When mixed with stimulants like caffeine, and artificial ingredients, they cause a variety of severe side effects like: kidney failure, high (or low) blood pressure, increased heart rate, asthma, breast pain, loss of appetite, headache, mood changes, insomnia, nose bleeds, excessive menstruation, and fatigue.

Overdose of Niacin/Niacinamide (Vitamin B3)

It is recommended by the Food and Nutrition Board, that on average we are supposed to consume 14-18mg daily for adults, with a higher intake level of 35 mg for therapeutic use. A 12oz can of Monster energy drink provides 40 mg, which converts to 200% of the daily required amount of (synthetic) vitamin B3. If you consume whole foods that are abundant in vitamin B3 (niacin), you wouldn’t experience any severe side effects.

There is a reason why niacin is rarely found in natural food—it’s because our bodies don’t need so much of it. But, when taken in supplement or synthetic form in high doses, side effects can be harmful.

Niacin is utilized as a natural blood thinner and only a very small amount is needed to improve blood circulation. Within half an hour of taking niacin, one may experience a “niacin flush” when the capillaries become dilated and increases blood flow, causing a warming sensation and reddening of the skin. When taken on an empty stomach, the effect can be felt instantly. This overdose amount of niacin used as one of the ingredients in an energy drink—that gives a sudden surge of energy—will also carry with it, all the artificial stimulants and synthetic ingredients to be distributed throughout the body. It may give the drinker a temporary “high” feeling, but also bring extreme harm to all the organs in the body.

Here are some conditions that are a result from synthetic niacin overdose:

  • Skin reactions—hives and rashes
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Headaches and dizziness
  • Increased and irregular heartbeats
  • Aggravated gout and arthritic symptoms
  • Elevated blood pressure
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Swelling of the face or tongue

Artificial Food Preservatives

Potassium Sorbate

 Potassium sorbate is a chemical food preservative that is toxic to the human peripheral blood lymphocytes (white blood cells). Mainly, it damages the genetic information within a cell, causing mutations that can cause cancer to form.

Sodium Benzoate

 Sodium benzoate is a synthetic chemical produced by combining sodium hydroxide and benzoic acid. A lab study looked into the impact of sodium benzoate on cultured human cells. It was found that the chemical triggered an increase in damage to DNA and initiated cell mutation leading to cancer. The effect is made worse when added to foods and to the interior of metal cans that contain beverages or liquid foods, due to the interaction with the metal.

The #1 "bodyfat-eating" hormone...

weight loss solvedTo begin, I apologize for the dark nature of today's email.

However I promise what you'll discover today will be completely worth it.

Imagine a rotting corpse draped over your body from head to toe...

...suffocating tissue, restricting blood flow, damaging joints and infecting your healthy cells.

Shockingly, that nightmare is a reality for most:

64% of women and 74% of men carry too much body fat according to the National Institutes of Health.

It's choking their organs, assaulting their metabolism and sucking their energy dry.

But here's the worst part:

For most, this bodyfat has become "calorie-resistant":

It's completely unaffected by even the strictest diets... and most intense exercises.

This zombie fat is essentially... "dead tissue".

That's important for those who have 10, 25 or 50 or more pounds to lose...

AND for those who aren't technically overweight, but have what's called "pocket obesity"...

...unsightly patches of fat that cling to specific places, like:

just above your hips, lower belly, where your butt and legs meet... and even arms, neck and face.

However, there's good news:

Obesity researchers have now discovered a "metabolic jumper cable":

It jolts dead bodyfat back to life.

This allows your metabolism to burn it as calories and re-energize your entire body.

First though, here's the #1 reason why bodyfat becomes calorie-resistant:

It lacks blood flow. This has 3 effects:

  1. Not enough oxygen or nutrients reach fat cells, so they become unresponsive..
  2. Released fat can't be sent to other tissues to be burned, so fat cells suck it back in...
  3. 3) Metabolic hormones carrying the "burn calories" message don't reach the fat cell...

All this means one thing:

Your body can't transform into energy, the 135,000+ of calories the average person stores as fat!

You become a metabolic zombie: NO energy to think. NO energy to move. NO energy to motivate.

Update: calorie-resistant bodyfat can be now removed...

The discovery of this "metabolic jumper cable" can now reverse this process:

  • It wakes up un-responsive bodyfat with a powerful calorie-burning hormonal jolt....
  • It pops open fat cells, sucks out the fat, sending it off before its yanked back in...
  • It shuttles fat to your brain, heart, lungs, kidneys - even your bones - to be burned as energy.

Not only do those layers of "zombie fat" start coming off, but your entire body just works better.

Plus, as your whole body burns more calories, those patches of pocket obesity whittle away.

This "metabolic jumper cable" isn't any exercise, machine or pill.

It's a little-known, calorie-burning hormone we all have... just waiting for the right spark to come alive.

It's not thyroid, leptin, ghrelin, insulin, adiponectin, HGH or any other "fat loss" hormone you may know.

And on this next page, you'll find out precisely how to unleash its calorie-burning power:

==> How to Activate Your #1 "Bodyfat-Eating" Hormone...

How to Activate Your #1 "Bodyfat-Eating" Hormone

PS - Studies show that not only can healthy levels of this powerful calorie-burning hormone devour bodyfat and fortify soft muscle, but it can also reduce your risk of diabetes by 53.7%, a heart attack by 83.3% and stroke by 51.4%. Here's more of the scientific proof...


How to Wipe Out Chronic Inflammation (Free Book)

The 5 Most Dangerous Lies You’ve Been Told About Bread

breads-email-small

Is Bread Really the Staff of Life… or the Stuff of Disease?

For most us, there are few foods more comforting than bread.

Fluffy biscuits, crusty baguettes, flaky croissants… even a simple slice of toast topped with melted butter can taste like heaven.

And that smell… few scents are quite as pleasant as fresh bread baking in the oven.

But there is a lot of confusion as to where bread fits into a healthy diet.

The Bible practically commands followers to eat it: “Give us this day our daily bread…” The government put it at the base of the food pyramid. And for centuries, it has been called “the staff of life.”

Of course, there are some who disagree…

Well-known cardiologist, Dr. William Davis, calls wheat “the perfect chronic poison.”

And for a poison, we sure eat lots of it…

The average American consumes 55 pounds of wheat flour every year, making refined flour the #1 source of calories in the American Diet – a situation that nutrition expert Chris Kresser describes as, “a public health catastrophe.”

So, what is the truth about bread and wheat?

  • Is it the perfect poison… or an essential daily food?
  • Is “gluten-free” bread better for you than regular bread?
  • And can you still eat bread… while maintaining a lean body and optimal health?

The answers to these questions may surprise you!

The 5 dangerous lies about bread…

Be sure to read #5 – the biggest surprise of all!

Weight-Loss-Tips

Recently, Doctor of Naturopathy, weight-loss expert and best-selling Amazon author Liz Swann Miller, creator of the Red Smoothie Detox Factor, revealed 2 of the secrets to easy, steady weight loss. Secrets the big food corporations do their best to hide from us.

You probably know most of us eat too much processed food. What you may not know is that it’s full of toxic chemicals and substandard, dirt-cheap ingredients designed to make you eat more…and force you to gain weight.

Here’s how it works.

“That stuff is just a lot of calories your body can’t use,” Liz told me, “Some are poison. And all these foods are stripped of the anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories that help your body detox. The result? Your body expends huge amounts of calories to eliminate some toxins—the rest, it stores in your fat to protect you. This is why most people are hungry all the time. They’re not getting energy they need.”

“So… what’s going on with me? Why am I losing weight but not going hungry?”

Liz paused, then dropped the bombshell.

Your body is designed to burn fat. You just have to let it.

“What? I thought we were designed to store fat?!?” We were Skyping and I was practically shouting. Then I heard Liz say…

What good is a fat reserve if you can’t burn it?

Mind blown.

Liz continued: “You’re drinking smoothies packed with phytonutrients, anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories that pull toxins out of you like a tractor beam. Allowing your body to burn those toxin-filled fat stores… and releasing tremendous amounts of stored energy.”

So that’s why I’m losing weight without going hungry.
