I'm really curious about the amino acid, taurine. I found it added to some 
energy drinks i Sweden (among lots of other things) and I wonder why it 
would be in it. Also, is it bad for you if you overdose it by drinking to 
many of these drinks? A rumor back there said that you can find taurine in 
a cow's urine that's how it got its name --taurus.... I don't believe it 
but i just want to clarify this...Thanks.
