Evening Standard – Drinking vodka with Red Bull has a similar effect on the brain as taking cocaine, experts warn…Dr Richard van Rijn, from Purdue University, Indiana, said: “It seems the two substances together push them over a limit that causes changes in their behaviour and changes the neurochemistry in their brains.”
Gee you don’t say? This terribly destructive concoction resembles another more powerful drug? Listen I love a good red bull vodka once in a while as much as the next sorority girl, but there’s a trend here no? Drink, get drunk, brainstorm, discover new way to get drunker faster. It’s what colleges were built on.
Don’t want to actually do drugs? Okay take a shot through your eye ball or shotgun this Four Loko. Figure out what’ll kill me and back it off a bit. Teenagers and college kids looking to get blitzed; science strikes again. If we’re being honest, this story does nothing but cause red bull vodka sales to soar. I doubt that was the intended effect, go figure.
