caffeine powder can kill

Heard about the death of young kid using caffeine powder. You can buy this product for less than $10 and a teaspoon is equivalent to 20-23 cups of coffee. I work two jobs and need this to keep me going. Can anybody use this product? Are there health conditions where someone should not use this product?

Hello Anonymous,

I can appreciate your need to stay alert because you work two jobs.

However, caffeine is a stimulant drug. Pure caffeine, sold as a powder dietary supplement, has side effects. It can cause irregular heartbeats, muscle spasms, and kidney failure.

This summer, Logan Stiner died suddenly just three days before his high school graduation. . Later, a plastic bag with a white powder was found in his house. It contained pure, concentrated caffeine.

As reported on WHDH.com NBC/Boston "
An autopsy found Logan had 23 times as much caffeine in his system a typical coffee or cola drinker, enough to kill him.'

Anonymous, do not use caffeine powder. No one should. It can kill you.
