Poisonous Foods and Beverages: 'Energy' Kills
I hate to stay with yesterday's topic (and its hideous images) but I'm tanked up on caffeine and can't help myself! No, seriously, I've come to the conclusion that the beverage Cocaine should never have made the Woman's Day list as something that "We guarantee you can’t find [..] at a grocery store near you." If you click on the topic of "energy drinks" on the web, you discover a world of caffeine "food products" (including caffeinated sunflower seeds) that could keep you up all night just thinking about them.
These were over at the website Oxide, a place to buy high intensity computer lighting and other supplies for LAN parties, bring-your-own-computer parties usually fueled by high sugar and caffeine content "energy" drinks and large amounts of junk food.
Gateway drugs, anyone? For dietary reasons alone, LAN parties can be a teen's mother's nightmare. If you want to swiftly destroy your health, you can't do much better than this: high quantities of sugar, caffeine, and days and nights gaming continuously without sleep. When I first saw the breath mints Foosh, I thought they said "Foolish": when it comes to choosing your poison, these contemptible products are killers for sure. (Okay, that's my furious mom lecture.)
