I don't know about it causing a heartattack or cancer, but I'm sure if you drank enough of it over a long period of time, it would cause some type of health problems in the future...

I would never suggest drinking it before any serious match or training though. All it's going to do is give you a ton of energy for a very little bit, and then you are going to feel like complete crap because it sucked all the energy out of you so quick.

It's complete un-natural and I would never suggest it.

Sometimes we think sports drinks help us when we are a bit frustrated. I've never noticed a difference except being very hyper and dehydrated after energy drinks. Actually now in College NCAA it is banned as of a couple of months ago, even Sobe Adrenaline!

Red Bull is awful. I would never recommend it for anything. It is the number one most commercialized energy drink on the market right now, meaning that it has a certain reputation to contain. This means that they have to get above every other energy drink by putting more and more chemicals to make you have a caffeine high unlike no other. If you want to drink an energy drink, drink hansen's energy, completely natural, it's in a small can and gives you just what you need without being a total burnout after 15 minutes as J mentioned. Do not drink too many energy drinks though, or else you could get dependant on it. Have it when you really need it.

only way I'd drink red bull is if its with Vodka! (In regards to yyour question I think its a bad drink before a game, simply from experience)

Nigel Reo Coker of West Ham United "opens a can of red bull an hour and a half before kick off and sips it throughout the warm up"
That surprised me as I thought it wasn't all that good for you but I suppose when the game is as intense as an EPL game then a little caffeine and sugar boost wouldn't be too bad.
But personally I've only ever drunk it once (the other day) and probably wouldn't consider drinking it before a game.
Without doubt.

Red Bull contains Taurine

so called because it is a synthetic duplicate of bull testosterone... :shock:
yes, your drinking bull nut.

well not exactly because it is synthesized, but molecularly its the same :)

but also, I disagree tat sports drinks like gatorade don't help. I think they are much better than just water because they contain water plus sugar and a little bit of salt which I forget why, but it useful in a quick carb deficit.

People in countries without clean water have to completely remove everything from the water including the minerals that are good for you. that's why they drink mineral water to get those minerals back. gatorade i think works like that.
