Caffeine Can Be Fatal

I genuinely did not realize that it was possible to procure pure caffeine from the Internet or from other sources. Overseas, a young man passed away from caffeine toxicity following the ingestion of only 2 tsp. of caffeine powder, with an energy drink used as a chaser. The linked report states the man died shortly after ingestion. --SJR
