Woman Dies From Drinking Too Much Coca Cola by SimonAndal(m): 9:21pm On Feb 13, 2013



It always seemed like a scare tactic that fat fearing parents would tell their sugar loving kids: if you drink too much Coke, you could die! (okay, maybe in a not so morbid way) But a woman actually died from drinking too much Coke. The coroner blamed the 30-year-old woman's 2.2 GALLON a day Coke problem—as in Coca Cola—as the reason for her death.

2.2 gallons is about 4 2-liters or nearly 24 cans of Coke every day. Holy poo. Natasha Harris, the woman who drank too much Coke, passed away in February 2010 but coroner David Crerar just recently released his report, saying:

"I find that when all the available evidence is considered, were it not for the consumption of very large quantities of Coke by Natasha Harris, it is unlikely that she would have died when she died and how she died."

In addition:

[Her habit] "was a substantial factor that contributed to the development of the metabolic imbalances which gave rise to the arrhythmia".

Harris, who didn't drink alcohol, was also found to have an enlarged liver because of fatty depostis from excessive sugar consumption and low potassium levels in her blood. Her body was ruined inside from all the fizzy brown syrup. Coke responded to the coroner's claim, saying:

"[We] are disappointed that the coroner has chosen to focus on the combination of Ms Harris' excessive consumption of Coca-Cola, together with other health and lifestyle factors, as the probable cause of her death. This is contrary to the evidence that showed the experts could not agree on the most likely cause."

Coke Kills!

Thanks to a raging soda habit, William Kennewell, 25, wears a full set of dentures.
Kennewell drank between six and eight liters of sugary soft drinks a day
and ignored his dentists' warnings about the problem until it was too late, he said
.


Soft-drink addiction caused Australia man, 25, to lose teeth, get blood poisoning
William Kennewell never cared for water, and he had ready access to soda, so he drank that — lots of it.
Now he’s the perfect poster boy for Mayor Bloomberg’s war on soda.

Need a reason to cut back on soda? How about a 25-year-old who wears dentures?

William Kennewell of Salisbury, Australia, was never a fan of water, so he drank cola — a lot of it.

He downed a staggering six to eight liters a day for three years, he told the Adelaide Advertiser.

The soda habit became an addiction that he "struggled to kick," Kennewell said.

Eventually, he developed tooth decay so severe that it led to blood poisoning — and the removal of his remaining teeth.

"I'm told a normal person has about 23 teeth, but ... I only had 13 left, and they had to be removed," Kennewell said.

"It started because I wasn't a huge water fan and working in the hotel industry, I had easy access to Coke.

"Because my teeth were decaying so badly, it caused blood poisoning which just made me sick, but my health improved with the dentures
."

Kennewell is now a poster boy for Australian health researchers who are calling for warning labels on soft drinks about the risks of tooth decay.

He agrees with the idea, he says, though he's not sure how effective it will be

Yes. Too much of everytin is not good. Too much intake of sugary tins cause more harm n no good( xcept for d sweet taste dt doesn't last up to 30secs). In addition to tooth decay, it cld lead to diabetes mellitus, obesity(which has its many adverse effects), renal failure,just to mention a few. Flee frm sugary tins n hv a beta life
