It is believed that the excessive Coca Cola caused a reduction in Potassium in this woman. She did not die directly of obesity or diabetic issues.

i myself 'listen' to what my body wants... a couple of days ago it was Banannas... just out of the clear blue
other times it's raisins or even salted cashews I binge with
I think the gal needed cola in insane amounts or else she might have put a gun to her head instead
too many are being superficially 'Judgemental' on sparse news reports...
let the autopsy results be posted before you all tie her to a burning stake (like Joan of Arc was)
open minds pleeze

You are quite right, as I have heard of people dieing from drinking to much water, and there is even a name for it.

ANY overindulgence in a certain food or drink to this ridiculous extent can cause severe health problems.
It's too bad Coke is getting blamed for this woman's poor choices.
Some people drink soda pop as if it is water, some even instead of water. Sure, the primary ingredient is water, but, with all the other “stuff” it contains it can have a…toxic…poisonous…lethal…venomous… seriously harmful effect on your entire body. Drinking soda pop is a sure-fire way to age faster.
Soda is one of the main reasons, nutritionally speaking, why many people suffer health problems. Aside from the negative effects of the soda itself, drinking a lot of soda is likely to leave you with little appetite for vegetables, protein and other food that your body needs.
Teenagers and children, who many soft drinks are marketed toward, are among the largest consumers. In the past 10 years, soft drink consumption among children has almost doubled in the United States. Teenage boys now drink, on average, three or more cans of soda per day, and 10 percent drink seven or more cans a day. The average for teenage girls is more than two cans a day, and 10 percent drink more than five cans a day

An Invercargill man who claims his partner died because she drank too much Coca-Cola says she consumed up to eight litres a day.
Possible death by Coke?
Now, i do enjoy a ice cold glass of coke every now and then but this is rediculous!
Although there isn't much evidence as yet, that she died because of the consumption of so much
of the famous fizzy beverage, there does beckon a larger question out of all of this...
Is Coke gonna kill me?
Coke is BAD mmmmmmKay. Obviously anyone drinking anything like 'coke' at that level is going to run
into serious health issues early in their life. But thats just common sense really, i mean who would think
otherwise? (trick question) Also have you seen some people trying to get away from coke? They get
withdrawals like they where taking coc aine or something, it's crazy!
Anyway do you think they should put sufficient warning labels on fizzy drinks like this?
Citing the adverse health effects that one can experience from excessive consumption?
I really hope this guy isn't going to try get money out of Coca-Cola.
His wife should of known it's not good for her, while her family and partner didn't seem too bothered with
trying to get her to cut back a bit....
I also cant imagine she was the type of person who was exercising and eating healthy all the time except
for her 'coke' habit.
End of the day, it goes to show how fragile the Human body can be towards certain abuses of it, we only have one and it really can be your temple, or prison.
Drinking carbonated water offers the same benefits as drinking plain water. It keeps you hydrated, which (among other things) helps prevent constipation. Drinking water can reduce your appetite and help you eat less at meals. And depending on the source of the water, it may contain minerals that help strengthen your bones and teeth.
