So apparently drinking red bull and vodkas is basically the same as doing a line of cocaine...

According to science (yep, it must be true then), red bull and vodka is just about as bad as doing a full line of cocaine.

This study revealed that mixing any type of alcohol or spirits with a highly caffeinated energy drink can have serious long-term effects on the brain which appear to be identical to those caused from doing cocaine. 

It's so bad that teens who have drank this combination have experienced "brain-altering" effects even into adulthood! 

Dr. Richard van Rijn, one of the lead authors in the study, stated,

It seems the two substances together push them over a limit that causes changes in their behavior and changes the neurochemistry in their brains. We are clearly seeing effects of the combined drinks that we would not see if drinking one or the other.

So maybe we should lay-off the red bulls and vodka.
