Discussion on 5 hour energy page[edit]

Edited the section headlines. -Vic 570vca (talk) 12:42, 4 November 2011 (UTC)

is this in the right place?[edit]

Nice article! for few of your cites I just made an attempt to 5-hour energy contact site. just asked them if they have scientific articles that they are willing to share since we are about to launch this onto the main site. If I heard anything from them I'll put that in. -Virginia 507WVS (talk) 17:29, 20 November 2011 (UTC)

No big deal, but your entry does not appear to be in your sandbox, I am not sure this is where you want it to be located at this time -- you note you are getting comments outside of the 570 user community. I don't think the potential risk is particularly evident from your discussion of the ingredient label -- You may wish to re-title this section. A table that compares the ingredient amounts per serving with the RDI and toxicological thresholds would be informative -- One way to wrap this discussion together would be to answer how many 5 Hour Energy per day would result in consumption in excess of a toxicological level of concern for one or more of the ingredients. Not much margin of safety here it would appear to me.570jdw (talk) 20:28, 8 November 2011 (UTC)

Joe: Interesting topic! Are there any warnings on the label on whom shouldn't drink this? There also appears to be different formulations of this drink (Extra Strength and without caffeine/niacin). It may be good to point out the label contents refer to the Original and maybe the Extra Strength. 570mpp (talk) 21:21, 5 November 2011 (UTC)

Hi! I like this topic and was glad to see the research you've pulled together. Every time I see people buy these kinds of things I think of the damage it has to do on kidneys...as in all of the things we take in that are not absorbed must be pulled out by the kidneys. Anyway, I can't find anything substantial to add other than encourage you to cite where you've stated. -Wayne — Preceding unsigned comment added by 570wac (talkcontribs) 22:43, 7 November 2011 (UTC)

₡ Whoops, my ip is 206.127.183.90 in case you were wondering who that was. Also, generally wikipedia doesn't like hyperlinks in the headings of entries. (570ajk (talk) 06:41, 8 November 2011 (UTC))

Orphaned non-free media (File:5_Hour_Energy®_Original_Supplemental_Facts.gif)[edit]

Deletion discussion about 5 Hour Energy - Potential Health Risk[edit]

Hello, 570jby, and thanks for contributing to Wikipedia!

I wanted to let you know that some editors are discussing at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/5 Hour Energy - Potential Health Risk whether the article 5 Hour Energy - Potential Health Risk should be in Wikipedia. I encourage you to comment there if you think the article should be kept in the encyclopedia.

The deletion discussion doesn't mean you did something wrong. In fact, other editors may have useful suggestions on how you can continue editing and improving 5 Hour Energy - Potential Health Risk, which I encourage you to do. If you have any questions, feel free to ask at the Help Desk.

Thanks again for your contributions! Peacock (talk) 19:22, 30 November 2011 (UTC)
