Red Bull energy drink may cause blood clots
Drinking just one can of the popular energy drink Red Bull may put you at risk of developing blood clots.
A new Australian study says even young healthy people develop symptoms normally associated with cardiovascular disease after drinking the caffeine drink.
Researchers tested 30 young adults an hour before and after with sugar-free Red Bull. They say the results were striking.
One hour after they consumed the drink, their cardiovascular systems were no longer normal, and their blood became sticky, an indicator of blood clots.
