Red Bull Kills!

Well, maybe:

Fears have been raised over the safety of high-caffeine energy drinks after an inquest heard they could have brought on a fatal heart attack.

The bloke had an underlying condition and was drinking four cans of Red Bull a shift. Each can has about the same caffeine as a cup of coffee: it\’s nothingto do with Red Bull as such, it\’s the caffeine.

Amazingly the report says that the drink has been banned in some countries: why is coffee, equaly dangerous, not also banned? That would be because everyone agrees that that would be stupid: so why the ban on Red Bull?

  1. why is coffee, equaly dangerous, not also banned? That would be because everyone agrees that that would be stupid: so why the ban on Red Bull?

    See also MDMA and alcohol. If something demonstrably harmful is already in mass use, the bansturbators can’t get their hands on it (or at least, not without a massive fight), whereas if something safe but psychoactive is newly invented, there’s no way in hell anyone will ever let it be legal…
