Researchers Say Beware Of Sugar Free Red Bull
The popularity of Red Bull is astounding. In 2007, 3.5 billion cans of Red Bull were reportedly sold across the globe.
In 2003, the sugarless version of the popular "energy drink" was created. Although consumers almost always deem any food product that is marketed as "sugar free" as healthy, researchers are urging Red Bull fans to beware of Sugar Free Red Bull.
According to The Independent, "Australian researchers have found that the sugar-free version of Red Bull may increase the danger of blood clots, and creates 'sticky' blood, raising the risk of heart attack or stroke."
