  • It’s poor reporting, but not necessarily poor research.

    Out of the 144, how many of them were under 42 years old.

    All we know from this article is that some number of 20-42 year olds had a cardiac arrest correlated with energy drinks. That age group is extremely young to have a cardiac arrest.

    If the 7 they looked at were all otherwise healthy 20-42 year olds, that consumed high levels of energy drinks, then there might be more to the story. Especially if they didn’t find any otherwise healthy 20-42 year olds that had a cardiac arrest and did not consume energy drinks.

    Though with only the information in the article, we have no way to understand what is really being said.
