5 Hour Energy drink linked to deaths?

Posted: Updated:

5-Hour Energy shot may be supplying users with too big of a rush.

According to the New York Times, records from the Food and Drug Administration show that those 5-Hour Energy shots you see on counters almost everywhere have been linked to 13 deaths and 30 life-threatening incidents since 2008.

The life-threatening incidents include heart attacks, convulsions, and at least one "spontaneous abortion" according to the Times.

This comes a month after the FDA said Monster energy drinks were linked to five deaths.
