New Zealand woman’s Coca-Cola habit blamed for her death

On Natural Health News,  A woman has recently died at the age of 30 with no apparent causes except that she was on a steady diet of 8 liters of Coca-cola a day.  Also she was a 30-a-day smoker as well.  Coca-cola is now being considered the cause of her death.  She suffered from an extreme lack of potassium which coca-cola is known to strip from the body.  Her liver was also extremely damaged from excessive soda intake.  This all resulted to a heart-attack for this poor woman.

Her partner said she was so addicted she would keep a bottle next to her bed and drink it as soon as she woke up.

At the rate of 8 liters a day, that equals over 400 grams of sugar (really, high-fructose corn syrup, which is way worse) or just about one pound.

Also she drank the caffeine equivalent of 12 espressos.  You can read the whole article here
