Red Bull Gives You More Than Wings

redbullJust one can of the popular stimulant energy drink Red Bull can increase your risk of heart attack or stroke according to a new Australian study. The effect was seen even in young people.

Red Bull is a caffeinated beverage created in the 1980s by Austrian entrepreneur Dietrich Mateschitz. Red Bull was based on a similar Thai energy drink.

Australian Red Bull Study

The study team tested the cardiovascular systems of 30 young adults one hour before and one hour after consuming one 250ml can of sugar-free Red Bull.

Red Bull  causes blood to become sticky, a pre-cursor to cardiovascular problems such as stroke. Within one hour after drinking Red Bull, your blood system becomes abnormal, as might be expected from a patient with cardiovascular disease, according to the researcher Scott Willoughby. Willoughby is the the lead researcher from the Cardiovascular Research Centre.

Red Bull is banned in Denmark, Norway, and Uruguay because of the many health risks listed on its cans, however, the company still sold 3.5 billion cans in 143 countries in 2007. .
