Sen. Durbin’s vendetta against supplements

As my colleague Michelle Minton pointed out after Durbin introduced his bill last year, when you consider the amount of energy drinks sold every year, the small number of incidences appears less likely to be tied to energy drink consumption. “Taking into consideration the millions of energy drinks—not to mention energy supplements and coffee—that people consume every day without incident, the number of cases where someone has suffered adverse effects from consuming such products is so small as to be statistically insignificant,” she wrote.
