The Death of the Bro? Axe and Monster Now Bad for Our Health

+

While they’ve certainly had a good run, it looks like the era of the bro may be coming to end, with two bits of news out recently that have shaken the bro community to its core. First up came a letter from a group of doctors and researchers to the Food and Drug Administration, urging them to protect the children from the scourge of energy drinks. “There is evidence in the published scientific literature that the caffeine levels in energy drinks pose serious potential health risks,” the researchers wrote. (via NYT).

The energy beverage, aka bro-water, has been accused of being linked to a number of deaths throughout the country.

That which doesn’t kill us only makes us stronger, bros everywhere responded. But that which does apparently kill us is pretty unchill.

As if that weren’t bad enough, a Pennsylvania high school is asking its students to can it (heh heh) with the Axe body spray. (via Gawker).

Freedom High School in Bethlehem says one of its students was recently taken to a hospital after being exposed to Axe Body Spray. Now, officials are asking students to stop using it as a cologne or fragrance while attending the school.

We’ve been asking people to do that for years ourselves, but no one listened. So now what, brosephs? You can’t spray poison on your balls, and you can’t ingest a coke fiend alien’s butt bile 16 oz crushers at a time anymore? Maybe you could try doing it the other way around? Pour the Monster drink on your tits, and spray the can of Axe down your throat. Trust me, it’s effing sick. *blasts quads on squat rack*
