Abstract:I studied the effects of Red Bull on Daphnia (small water crustaceans) to determine if the drink's ingredients would increase the invertebrate’s heart rate and/or change behaviour. I chose Daphnia for my project because under certain test conditions they react similarly to humans, which I was interested in testing. My results showed that there were significant changes as a result of Red Bull Energy Drink.
