Alcohol and energy drink combination kills another young person

Alcohol and energy drink combination kills another young person

Kenny Hummel is the latest victim who died after consuming an energy drink mixed with alcohol.

I have written about this phenomenon many times.  Here is the latest tragic fallout from the stupid and deadly combination of alcohol and energy drinks.

Kenny Hummel’s Auntie, Lea Ann Easton, from Portland, said “Energy drinks and alcohol are a lethal combination.  The coroner said it appears Hummel died from ‘respiratory failure due to acute alcohol poisoning’. But energy drinks played a role. The coroner told us, normally, when someone drinks too much, they throw up or go to sleep. The body shuts down so the person can’t drink anymore. With these caffeinated drinks, the body doesn’t shut down. You can drink alcohol past the point where the body can handle it”.

My sincere heartfelt thoughts are with this family at this time.  They are another victim of the rogue alcohol industry and proof that stricter policing is required.
