Will "Energy Drinks" Finally Kill Off Most Americans?

"A new government survey suggests the number of people seeking emergency treatment after consuming energy drinks has doubled nationwide during the past four years, the same period in which the supercharged drink industry has surged in popularity in convenience stores, bars and on college campuses. From 2007 to 2011, the government estimates the number of emergency room visits involving the neon-labeled beverages shot up from about 10,000 to more than 20,000."
Those corn-syrup/caffeine "sports drinks" are not just making you obese.

But what else did they involve? Vodka? Extreme sports? How does over caffeination by itself cause more than anxiety?

Late to bed and early to wake.
You've shit to do for goodness sake!
Forgo a night away from noise.
Go clubbing with the girls and boys!

But whence all this get-up and go?
They can it now. Oh, don't you know?
So have a sip or maybe six.
Get all your kicks with a quick fix.

How many of these incidents involve broken wings?

But consumption increased fourfold, so it's a win.
