Lake Worth, FL (PRWEB) August 28, 2014
Following the death of an 18-year-old high school senior in Ohio, on July 21, the FDA issued a warning on powdered caffeine products. Millennium Treatment Group is spreading the word about this harmful substance that is readily available to consumers, despite the fact that it is extremely dangerous.
In May, high school senior Logan Stiner died from an overdose of caffeine powder. His tragic death prompted an investigation of the substance, leading the FDA to issue a safety advisory for caffeine powders. More information about the case can be found at http://fox8.com/2014/06/28/coroner-toxic-amount-of-caffeine-led-to-stand-out-seniors-death/.
Powdered caffeine is available online and is easily purchased because it is unregulated. It may be attractive to young people looking for added caffeine stimulation or help losing weight. However, consumption of caffeine powder can have devastating consequences, as in the case of 18-year-old Stiner.
According to the FDA, just one teaspoon of pure caffeine powder is equivalent to about 25 cups of coffee. The powder is so potent that it cannot be measured with ordinary kitchen tools, making it dangerous even if consumers measure the powder carefully. It is very easy to overdose on powdered caffeine.
Millennium Treatment Group wants to make sure that people are aware of this emerging trend. Everyone should know the risks caffeine powder poses, especially for teenagers and young adults. Parents and loved ones should take care to discuss the dangers of the substance with teenagers and recognize the signs of caffeine toxicity.
