What Is A Fatal Dose Of Four Loko?

“How many Four Lokos would it take to kill you?” wondered Esquire. So they turned to a report in Forensic Science International that says the rare fatal caffeine overdose usually requires consuming over 5 grams. To reach that level it would take…

Twenty-four Four Lokos. Most people would probably pass out before reaching that level. Either that, or temporarily disable themselves by doing something stupid while hopped up on the crazy swill. Not to mention your BAC is going to be a bit more of a problem than your BCC (blood caffeine content) at that point.

Everything in moderation folks. You can also die from drinking too much water.
