Bad News For Men And Women Of The Sesh: Jagerbombs Are Really Dangerous

We all love a Jagerbomb. Well, we don't. We love to hate it. We love it at the time even though we say "Ooh fucking hell, RIP me! Gonna be a state tomorrow. Bloody hell. Here are we. Go on then, Rick! Let's get this over with! Hahaha."

The next day we just hate it. And it turns out we should, for good reason. For 'science reasons'.

Research shows that energy drinks - which makes up half of a Jagerbomb for all the wet lettuces out there who steer clear of them - can mask the effect of alcohol, meaning you drink more as a result, meaning you're then more likely to injure yourself via fall, car accident, or good old fashioned fighting.

Lead author of the study by the University of Victoria in Canada, Audra Roemer, said: "Usually when you're drinking alcohol, you get tired and go home.

"Energy drinks mask that, so people may underestimate how intoxicated they are, end up staying out later, consume more alcohol, and engage in risky behaviour and more hazardous drinking practices."

Drinkaware also states that mixing Red bull with alcohol can make people "wide awake drunk", creating a false sense of sobriety.

Drinking a shit-ton of caffeine while on the lash can also lead to anxiety and heart palpitations.

The researches found 10 of 13 studies published between 1981 and 2016 linked the combination of energy drinks and booze with an increased risk of fights and accidents.

Not to be a party pooper, if you're experiencing these problems after a night dabbling with Jager, maybe just throw the thing over your shoulder. Or just say 'no', though that might prove more testing.
