Ever notice how we all have that one friend who gets a little too much liquor in them and turns into the Incredible Hulk? Everything makes them mad and they're 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 of a person who wants to stir it up a lil and you need to get them out of the bar before someone gets arrested?
Yeah. We all have that friend. Or maybe YOU are that friend.
You need to tell them 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 the Journal of Psychiatric Research suggests this potent mix compounds the effects of heavy drinking, and increases the “risk of fighting, violence, and participation in risky behaviors.”
