Red Bull
August 27, 2006
I am a Red Bull addict. I drink between 3 and 5 red bulls a day. Considering I work many hours per day (12-13), I need something to keep me going plus I like its taste. I tried not relying on red bull, but I almost fell asleep at work several times. Anyway, recently, friends and family noticed that I have been drinking more of it and have been stressing that I'm over doing it now; they are used to the idea that I always have a Red Bull can in my car or in my hand:) Everyone has been telling me about its health hazards and all that. So I did some research on it and found out some interesting things:
1. Because of the ingredient Taurine, Red Bull is categorized as a medicine!
2. Causes alterations in heart beat rhthyms which can cause considerable damage in the future.
3. Banned in Denmark, Norway, and France.
4. Gives some kind of euphoric feeling when mixed with alcohol... I already knew that, but I think euphoric is exagerrated.

I know its not too healthy, but I like it... I mean I do smoke and we all know not thats not healthy, but I still do it.

    i personally dont like Red Bull it tastes like Cough Syrup to me.. and I know what you mean that your falling asleep.. because of the hours your doing and the amount of time you spend outside..

    I tend to try to get a good amount of sleep.. and its true that I probably dont spend a lot of time outside because Im too exhausted after work..

    But Redbull does have some crazy side affects.. but one thing you should try to get your body back to normal is lowering the number of redbulls you drink.. instead of 5 limit it to 3.. and the difference between smoking and redbull is that the affect of redbull shows very quickly..

    but some people are stuck on coffee.. I just tend to get a headache after a while at work!

    marzouq. ur absolutely right. i barely spend anytime at home. I hate being at home cos there is nothing to do and lately not enjoying watching TV.

    I should cut down on the red bull and will do so.

    As for coffee, I am also addicted to that. If i dont have it in the morning, I will have a headache all day.

    Damn I'm so messed up:)

    maze. am drinking man:)

    Frankom. its banned cos of the ingredient i mentioned, which is why they classified it as medicine. Now in France they have this energy drink that doesnt have that ingredient. Yeah i should cut down, but i hate the sugar free, i tried it...
