British Student Dies After Drinking Red Bull

 

After drinking at least four cans of Red Bull at a nightclub, 21-year-old Chloe Leach collapsed and died from cardiac arrhythmia. It is thought that her arrhythmia was worsened by the high level of caffeine present in her body from the energy drinks.

Coroner Geoffery Saul ruled out drug use and excessive drinking as causes of death and said none of her decisions "reflected badly" on her. While not officially diagnosed, Leech likely had QT syndrome which affects the heart's electric activity.

Chloe Leach also suffered from epilepsy. According to Tina Leach, her daughter regularly took her epilepsy medication and monitored with her caffeine consumption. "She would drink Red Bull occasionally and was aware it contained caffeine," Tina said.

She did knew that caffeine was not good for her! Why did she then drink Red Bull which contains large amounts of it?

Red Bull is healthier then coke as it is made from better ingredients and contains vitamins.

  True  
 
But you won't rule out many beverages if your only criteria is that it's "better than Coke".

  REDBULL  
 
Is bad for your teeth, but it taste good.
Redbull gives a energy flash but then you need more and more.

If you need energy to dance your ass should get on a tread mill and give you heart the time it deserves.

  A lot of issues  
 
QT syndrome, epilepsy, nightclub, 4 redbulls. Maybe if that didn't work she should have ran a marathon and shot heroin directly into her eyeball.

"listen everyone that drinks or smokes knows its bad for them but they still do IT"

And its still each individuals fault.

you have never been to a rave have you?

after 16+ hrs of dancing you need more chemicals than just a red bull to keep going.

and i agree with M4CRO if your going to down more than a couple cans of red bull then you would be better off just popping a pill
