Like many people around the world, Iím not a coffee drinker, Iíve tried it, but it seems to give me stomach cramps, never understood why as my parents always drank coffee all there lives. Being older and working the crazy hours I do today, I need that "starter" or energy boost, so if you know me, you'll see me drink a Red Bull or Vitamin Water.

Well recently on a shoot a dear friend of mind and model I've worked with for six years mentioned that a friend of hers has issues that she thought were Red Bull related. She told me if I didn't believe it, just Google Red Bull and see what you find.

Well I did and Red Bull is more popular than fried chicken and there are proported cases of health issues with it. Not sure if there is any truth in all of it, but it does appear some folks have taken it very serious. In fact, RB is banned in some countries. Do a Google yourself, then come back and let me know your thoughts. So far it's been ok for me. Thanks, rg sends!

Most of the problems that I've heard about seem to be associated with the high intake of caffeine and sugar. Red Bull has both in abundance. Many people have a problem with caffeine and so they would be more prone to having adverse reactions to excessive consumption of the drink. But a person that has no particular problem with caffeine will probably have no problems.
Personally, when I want a pick me up, I just drink an 8 oz glass of Water with Essential Greens powder mixed in. http://www.drwhitaker.com/c/store_da...d_essgreen.asp

Umm, I've heard that Army coffee is also used a degreaser and a solvent, could explain those stomach cramps.

Seriously, thanks for the heads up on RB, I never knew. I never experienced any problems with it but then I usually dilute it with vodka when I do drink it and never drink it in the morning.

Cheers,

Thats a lot of testing.
I do think that all the Red Bull has made you a little "testy"!

ok, ya pulled me out of the woodwork.

Working in the field of clinical pharmacology, I would have to say that any drink that contains roughly three times the caffeine of coke, along with two other potentially psychoactive stimulant components in large quantities, coupled with little documented clinical research on the interaction, may make for some interesting times.
Taurine in animals can lead to bizarre behaviour, consistent with stimulant properties, and a synergistic interaction with caffeine is likely.

The one reported death in humans following four cans of Red Bull in an 18 year old following intense excercise is consitent with overdose with a stimulant in my mind.

so enjoy!

I will go back to lurking now....
