Powdered Caffeine Kills Teen

A new dangerous product has made national headlines after the tragic death of an 18 year-old Ohio teen. Caffeine powder, a relatively cheap product available online. One teaspoon contains as much caffeine as thirty cups of coffee, which makes it easy to overdose. The powder is often mixed with drinks or snorted for a stimulating effect. An overdose can make the heart beat so quickly it cannot properly pump blood through the body, resulting in death. The tragic death of the 18 year old resulted from an overdose.

Products like this often lack warnings. Additionally, the availability over the internet to purchase products without regulation and warnings is dangerous. Like the outcome for the 18 year old Ohioan, an overdose with caffeine powder could easily occur by accident if one was unaware of its potency.
