Man Develops Hepatitis After Binging On Energy Drinks
Doctors say a 50-year-old Florida man has developed hepatitis after drinking four to five energy drinks every day for three weeks reports NBC4i. The man told doctors he began suffering from abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting and dark urine.
The binge-drinking man was rushed to the hospital where a biopsy of his liver showed severe hepatitis from the excessive consumption of niacin.
Docs and nutritionists say each bottle of the man’s energy drink contained 40mg of niacin, which is over 200% of the recommended daily value. Drink. Some. Damn. Water.
