as much as 300 mg. Of caffeine. One cup of coffee contains approx. 80 mg. Of caffeine.
Caffeine causes high blood pressure, nervousness, and heart palpitations (the heart has flutter

One popular brand has been banned in  Norway, Uruguay, and Denmark.

In Canada one popular drink is allowed to be sold but with a warning label:
Not recommended for children, pregnant  or breastfeeding women, caffeine sensitive persons, or
to be mixed with alcohol. Do not consume more than 500 ml a day.
