5-Hour Energy

たべもの

いわゆるエナジードリンク。実は自転車チームもサポートしてたりするんだけれど、どうも胡散臭さが漂うんだよな。最近エナジードリンクが関係あるんじゃないかと疑われているティーンの死亡例もあり、5-Hour Energyもその例にもれない。

According to records from the Food and Drug Administration, popular energy boosters like Monster and 5-Hour Energy have been involved in several serious illnesses in the past decade, including more than a few deaths.

5-Hour Energy Linked To 13 Deaths, 30 Life-Threatening Incidents Since 2008: FDA Reports

で、先日届いた自転車靴のパッケージにサンプルで入っていたのがこれ:
Actually the phrase makes me nervous.
うーむ、こう書かれるとなんかますます怪しい。で、この10の理由というのが、

  1. Over 1.5 billion bottles sold
  2. Key ingredients are also available in everyday food
  3. Packed with B-vitamins and nutrients
  4. Contains about as much caffeine as a cup of the leading premium coffee
  5. Bottled in the USA
  6. Compiles with the provisions of the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act as enforced by the FDA
  7. Has helped hard working people feel alert and energized for 8 years
  8. Zero sugar; zero herbal stimulants
  9. Four calories
  10. No artificial colors or dyes

ううう、ますます怪しい!どれも理由として弱すぎる。fine printには"These statements have not been evaluated by the FDA"とかあるし…。とりあえず放置かな。
