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 pre-cursor 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.
