    Man Dies of Caffeine Overdose prompting possible Ban

    In scary recent news, a British man has died of a caffeine overdose, according to a report. The 23-year-old, Michael Lee Bedford, apparently poisoned himself after using just two spoonfuls of caffeine powder. His grandmother now wants this particular lethal product banned.
    Cause...Accidental Death with body outline

    The report on this tragic death comes from The Nottingham Post. Apparently a friend of Bedford's bought the caffeine powder for just $5.26 online. He mixed it with an energy drink and within fifteen minutes was sweating and vomiting blood. Bedford didn't use the product according to its directions, and took a level of caffeine that was 70 times the amount found in energy drinks. The product's recommended dose was just 1/16th of a teaspoon.

    The case of Michael's death was heard before a Coroner's court, with a verdict of accidental death returned. The coroner Dr. Nigel Chapman noted, ""Caffeine is so freely available on the internet for £3.29 but it's so lethal if taken in the wrong dose and here we see the consequence." Friends and family of Michael's are distrought and angry over the death. His aunt even said "there should be a warning on it saying it can kill."

    Caffeine in this situation is clearly a deadly drug, like many other drugs used at parties. The difference is that caffeine is perfectly legal, so you wouldn't expect this. Obviously anyone who doesn't heed the instructions on a product will suffer the negative consequences. You can find plenty of examples in your kitchen that you just shouldn't overdo it with. However, there should be a significant warning on this particular product to warn of serious health issues and that it can potentially kill someone who takes too much. Michael's Grandmother even asked that this particular caffeine powder be banned. Does she have a point?

    Do you think the caffeine product maker should be liable or is it really up to the person who takes the product to use it responsibly? Should this particular product be banned?

    people don't realize that caffeine is a drug even though it's naturally occurring. he probably should have read the directions, sucks for a young life to be lost for nothing.

    He obviously didn't read the directions so what fucking good would a warning label have been?

    I understand the old dear is obviously distraught about this and wants something to channel that anger into, but for fuck's sake.

    Before i buy ANY new supplement i research the ingredients, usually from journal sources as well as testimonials from people i trust, work out just how much i should take before even buying it, obviously weight up the cost factor, and only then will i buy it IF im completely satisfied.

    If this guy had done even a shred of research into caffeine he'd have immediately found out how dangerous it is in large quantities. If he'd have read the fucking label he'd have found out how much he should have taken. Anybody who has taken caffeine would have known these things too. If he'd even applied some sort of logic to it by saying "Okay, so a red bull drink gets me buzzed and its only got...huh, 52mg? Wow, i better be careful considering a teaspoon is 5g and theres 500g in the whole bag!".

    Goddamn, they could have sent him protein and he wouldn't have noticed he read so little of the packaging. Theres even a "servings per bag" on most supps. Surely he must have noticed he couldnt get a few hundred teaspoons out of there?

    I know speaking ill of the dead is bad and all, and it's horrible that this guy has died before his time, but come on. The fuck up that killed him was his own.
