Avoid This Beverage to Reduce Your Risk of Having a Stroke and Heart Attack

A single can of Red Bull can increase your risk of a heart attack or stroke, whether you’re young or old. It is loaded with caffeine and makes the blood sticky, which can be a precursor to stroke and other cardiovascular problems. In just one hour after consuming a can of Red Bull, your blood can become as abnormal as someone’s with cardiovascular disease.

Norway, Uruguay, and Denmark have already banned this energy drink, and it was also banned in France from 1996 to 2008. The Ministry of Commerce in Kuwait banned the consumption of Red Bull for children under 16 years of age after it caused a heart attack in a 16-year old and a 21-year old.

Summary of Dr. Mercola’s Comments:

In the last few years, energy drinks have become more popular than ever, and this product has been popping up in every supermarket and store. Energy drinks have overtaken bottled water brands, and they are the fastest-growing category of products in the beverage business.

Last year, about 3.5 billion cans of Red Bull were sold in 143 countries. People keep asking questions on the safety of Red Bull and other energy drinks.

The primary ingredients in energy drinks are caffeine and sugar, found as glucuronolactone, sucrose, and glucose. Energy drinks do provide a quick burst of energy. But this effect does not last for long, so drinking several cans in a row will certainly not turn you into a superhero, regardless of the marketing geniuses who try to convince you otherwise.
