Ever notice how we all have that one friend who gets a little too much liquor in him, and he turns into the Incredible Hulk? Everything makes him mad and he's no longer fun to be around? Meanwhile, the rest of the group just wants to keep laughing and having fun, but you've got this angry jerk who wants to fight and you need to get him out of the bar before someone gets arrested?
Yeah. We all have that friend. Or maybe YOU are that friend.
You need to tell that guy to lay off the vodka-RedBulls.
Science has proven that the combo of vodka and taurine--the active energy-boosting ingredient in Red Bull--makes you belligerent.
A new study published in theJournal of Psychiatric Researchsuggests this potent mix compounds the effects of heavy drinking, and increases the “risk of fighting, violence, and participation in risky behaviors.”’
Also, Red Bull (and any energy drink, really)is terrible for you. Honestly, it's worse for you than the liquor. Just avoid it. Cheers!
