“A study of 30 university students aged between 20 and 24 years old found that drinking just one 250ml sugar-free can of the caffeinated energy drink increased the “stickiness” of the blood and after drinking one can participants had shown a cardiovascular profile similar to that of someone with heart disease.”
“Red Bull is banned in countries such as Norway, Uruguay and Denmark because of health fears.”
The story goes on to tell of a 15 year old that was hospitalized, college students being injured after consumption, and three deaths directly related to Red Bull.
“Previous studies have examined the effects of consuming Red Bull, one can of which contains 80mg of caffeine — around the same as a cup of filter coffee — and taurine, an amino acid commonly used in energy drinks.”
The article continues, “maybe there’s something quirky about the effect of the combination of the two in the drink which is causing this reaction, this is what we need to look at next.”
Red Bull gives you more than wings!
