News Flash…alcohol/caffeine combo not good for you!

Ya think?

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration today, November 17, 2010, warned four companies that the caffeine added to their malt alcoholic beverages is an “unsafe food additive” and said that further action, including seizure of their products, is possible under federal law.

Joose was one of the products that was deemed "detrimental"

The FDA consulted a team of doctors and also conducted their own “independent laboratory analysis” of these products.  Dr Joshua Sharfstein states,”…..there is evidence that the combinations of caffeine and alcohol in these products pose a public health concern.”

Yeah, because when you get drunk and annoying, you pass out.  No one has to listen to you tell us how much you love us when you’re passed out.

But with the added caffeine, you have the energy to stay awake and continue to be annoying……try to put the cat in the dryer….or worse, try to “drunk dance”

I think you would agree that all these drunk people dancing into other drunk people pose a definite “public health concern”.

I am so glad that people will now be drinking their alcohol, ginseng, taurine (which is the main chemical in human vomit) and artificial color without caffeine…..whew! I feel so much better!
