    someone told me the only reason its bad is because it makes you dehydrated. so don't cut down on your water intake on account of red bull.
    i'm sure there are other bad effects, though.

    somebody I know had one before all their GCSE exams, came out with 11A*s, but maybe thats just a coincidence.
    Anyway, it is definetly not healthy, and can be dangerous if mixed with vodka, as vodka slows the heart rate, but red bull speeds it up, causing some strain on the heart AFAIK

    red bull is nasty and tastes foul.... and yes it is bad for you

    however, interesting alternative drinks packed full of caffeine:

    mountain dew (import it from americansoda, it has 55mg caffeine per can and is the best drink ever)
    tesco kick cranberry (drinkable)
    sprite 3g (still rare at the moment, but basically the same principle as red bull but tastes of sprite, so is drinkable)

    i don't actually ever get caffeine or sugar highs, i think i must be immune to it..

    Sorry if I repeat anything here, the whole thread is a bit much to read.

    I often drink red bull but I am in no way fooled by the whole "gives you wings" thing. All the people who have said that it helps with sport are wrong! For starters it is fizzy - big nono in sport. Also all it does is give you a quick boost of 'fake' energy (making you think you have extra energy for a short time), which wears off pretty quick leaving you a lot more fatigued than you were in the first place. The only thing it is good for is keeping you awake. Oh, and it tastes great in vodka :-p

    But hey, it is extremely bad for you so keep it to a minimum (the rediculous price tag should help with that!).

    Heh, reminds me of the time we all got cans of some cheaper caffeine-loaded drink (can't remember its name) on a trip to the Netherlands...it took a little longer to kick in for me, but I can remember quite a lot of the boys, on their way back to the coach, running into a little children's playpark and running down the slide and doing all sorts like that...not entirely out of character, I must admit :rolleyes: but the buzz from the drink was definitely a factor in all of them doing it
