    Red Bull is actually Bull Urine. They had a local Thai drink that contained Bull Urine,Caffine etc., and later they synthesized the chemicals and made it to Red Bull. The main ingredient of it is Taurin and i must say it is very good for the heart. Tarus in Greek is Bull and Urine is Piss, So Gomuthar treatment went captalistic in a way.

    Long long ago on our way to have fun one of us requested to stop over for Red Bull drinks so that he could stay up late "energetically". That was my 1st time to taste it though I knew it before. Ja, I thought it American too, but Mr. Yoovidhya is a Chinese Thai.

    I am only replying this because I dislike your language.

    According to Baidu Baike, Chinese equivalent of Wikipedia, he was born in Hannan province of China, 1922, and was brought to his father in Thailand 2 years later.

    Calling Mr. Chaleo Yoovidhya Chinese is like calling Ms. Madeleine Albright Czech...

    The creator of the drink was a Thai, the person who made it famous was an Australian. It was initially banned across several countries, but it continues to be a popular energy drink.
