During the a Q&A portion of his radio show on Tuesday night, Larry Fedora reveals just how much he likes drinking Red Bull Energy Drinks. The answer is a lot.
Fedora just said he drinks nine Red Bulls a day during football season. I don't think that's possible.— Andrew Carter (@_andrewcarter) September 17, 2013
I mean, that's not too many right? Man has a busy schedule and I am assuming he doesn't like coffee.
Let's see how Red Bull compares to other drinks out there in terms of caffeine content.
|Starbucks Grande Coffee(16 oz)||320mg|
|5 Hour Energy(2 oz)||200mg|
|McDonald's Sweet Tea(32 oz)||100mg|
|Red Bull(8.4 oz)||80mg|
|Diet Pepsi Max(12 oz)||69mg|
|Diet Mt Dew(12 oz)||54mg|

So if we are talking about one, Red Bull isn't as bad as downing a large coffee from Starbucks or even some McDonald's sweet tea. However if you drink nine of them then we are talking about 720mg of caffeine over what is probably a 16-18 hour period assuming you get at least six hours of sleep. Oh, who am I kidding? No one is sleeping after drinking that much caffeine. In fact I have to wonder if Fedora has moments like this at some point during his day.
In case you were wondering, the fatal level of Red Bull consumption for an adult weighing 200 lbs is 170 cans. Since Fedora is only at nine per day he should be safe. After all, if you are out there doing stuff like this, you probably need a few energy drinks to get you by.
