An Arkansas man suffered kidney failure from what researchers say might be too much iced tea.

It all started back in May of 2014 when the patient arrived at the hospital and complained of body aches , exhaustion and weakness. Doctors discovered signs that his kidneys weren't working properly.

After conversing with the 56-year-old man, medical staff learned that he drank about 16 cups of iced tea day. In a recent study, researchers said they suspect that ingredients in the iced tea caused his kidney's to fail.
