    Default Supermarket worker dies of heart attack 'after drinking four cans of Red Bull'


    A man suffered a fatal heart attack which may have been caused by drinking too many cans of the energy drink Red Bull.

    Supermarket shelf-stacker Alfredo Duran, 40, is thought to have consumed as many as four cans of the caffeinated drink each night.

    He died from a cardiac arrest after collapsing at the Asda store where he worked.

    Each 250ml can of Red Bull is said to contain 80mg of caffeine - the same amount as a cup of filter coffee - and sales of the drink have been banned in some countries.

    A post-mortem examination revealed that Mr Duran had an enlarged heart, a disorder which impairs its ability to pump blood around the body.

    I've only ever had one Red Bull in my life. I intend to keep it that way.

    Lol. A product that actually lives up to its name, which kills people. Sweet irony right there.

    The only time I drink a red bull is when I am driving and I am struggling to stay awake. I consider it strong medicine!

    but it sez it on the can

    being so stupid to drink 4 a day was not a good idea to begin with.

    If someone was to use steroids and start smashing his fists into walls and break his hand, it would serve him right. it's just common sense.

    I'm sure it's not what killed him.

    I've drank more than 4 redbulls before.
    And it was mixed with double vodka.
