RED BULL AND MONSTER DRINKS CAUSE HEART PROBLEMS
Posted in CPR News
Wednesday October 14, 2015


I have heard from many nurses and doctors that I train that the energy drinks cause heart attacks because it has so much caffeine, it races your heart.

Yesterday, I was speaking to a student, and asked why he was wearing a heart monitor, and he said he drank 8 Red Bulls a week, and now he has serious heart issues. He is only in his 20's.

My nurses tell me when you mix it with alcohol, it makes the effects of the drink even worse for your heart.

Do yourself a favor, and refrain from drinking them.
