interesting. drinking 8 liters of water, instead of soda, would have helped, not hurt her.

i wonder if excess soda also contributes to weakened bones, or interference with Ca absorption?

theres several harmful chemicals in Coca -Cola, enough that Coca-cola is reducing one of them in order to avoid putting the California- required cancer warning label that should already be there based on the amount of carcinogenic chemical in their (burnt sugar chemical).

the fact that MONSANTO is involved in purchasing from Colombia and diluting homeopathic/legal/denatured coc aine levels into Coca cola is also a big flag and could be a behind the scenes contributor to why so many people crave/are addicted to and/or overconsume Coca-cola produces well over one serving of soft drink per day, for example.

kids, people are obviously drinking coca cola products in place and stead of more healthful juices or hydrating water.

i have seen one too many mothers putting COCA COLA OR PEPSI INTO THEIR INFANTS' BABY BOTTLE.

infant/youth caffeine addiction is likely a stepping stone for experimenting and indulging in stronger and stronger stimulants and narcotics sooner than later.

i've seen lots of kids having a can of soda for 'breakfast'... would you as a parent give your youngster a cup of caffeinated coffee or a can of soda for breakfast, is that responsible parenting and nutrition? spoiled youth learn to abuse their body early on with the false sense of security they will get whatever medical attention to fix any problems that arise from their indulges, with the burden on the system ie public healthcare and resources or pampering parent(s).

In grade school I would tell my best friend that he was going to die from eating so much sugar. He never made it to 25, developed diabetes and died. Our bodies just give up when hit with so much sugar.

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)

A bit of further research shows that she wasn't notably overweight either (This was from a recent photograph of the woman).

It is the diuretic action of the caffeine and vast volume of liquid passing through her body that was the most likely cause of the low Potassium levels.

She was, essentially, washing away the Potassium needed by her body.

Additionally, when I was younger, I worked in a factory which had old piping, and which had allowed oily pollutants into the water supply. Consequently, no-one drank the water (which made you sick) and everyone drank, almost exclusively from a Coca Cola vending machine. At the time, I was unaware of any ongoing health issues among the 100+ workers and few were overweight. Although now I have Diabetes, which I primarily blame on the high sugar content of the drinks from that vending machine.

They never mention if she drank diet coke or regular coke. I would guess that it was most likely Diet Coke, which contains a deadly posion called aspartame (fake sugar). If she was in fact drinking Diet coke, I would bet that the Aspartame killed her. I see so many fools drinking Diet Coke all the time. Sucralose (splenda) is just as dangerous, and they are putting it into foods and beverages with no warning whatsoever.

They (Coca cola company) recently started to put Sucralose into Minute Maid fruit punch (Coke owns Minute maid), something I grew up on since I was a kid. I noticed the headaches months ago and decided to read the label. Yes it did have sugar, but at the end it also had sucralose. It's not a diet drink whatsoever, yet they put it into their product without no warning whatsoever. I quit drinking it after 25 years. Brilliant marketing. Those morons thought they would save some money and only ended up losing millions of life long customers. Look out for Gatorade G force, It contains sucralose as well.

Anyway, back to the Coke issue. Even if it's regular coke, that much of anything is bad for you. That's 4 of those large, 2 litre bottles a day. That's stuck on stupid. ~$heopleNation

The point is there is no actual evidence that Coke killed her. It may have but I can't see any evidence other than circumstantial.

It's like saying a guy drops dead in his home and becuase he was also a heavy smoker he died because of smoking. You cannot say that without an autopsy as it might have been a brain haemorage.

But 8 litres of Coke a day !!!!??? Probably killed off all the bacteria in her gut.

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

My question would have to be "Who in their right mind would drink 8 liters of coke a day?". My next question would be "Why would someone in their right mind drink 8 liters of coke a day?". My last question is "how could someone even drink 8 liters of coke a day and live that long?" Sorry I can't comment on this, but I'm confused

I think to much of anything can probably kill you over time. On a side note i used to get hellish heartburn from drinking a single coke a day. Now im a strict Canada Dry Ginger Ale drinker and my heartburn is a thing of the past. Was it the coke or my gummiebear guts? I think it was probably a bit of both.

i hate those carbonated drinks, like the ones mentioned.

i tried that stuff a couple times, and it just tastes like **** and is full of *** i should never put into my body.

i will never drink or eat that *****

I normally stay away from carbonated soft drinks because of the blatantly obvious health issues associated with it. Getting those hazardous products into one's body is just sickening, at least to me. Now I'm not saying I don't drink it once in a while, because it's mostly forced upon you whenever you're usually at some event or get-together. But, here's what this website had to say about carbonated drinks.

Dangers of Soda Pop

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

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.

The thing is with most colas especially coca cola specifically is the fact that it actually absorbs most of the nutrients you have in your blood and sends it to your bladder, so if you do eat healthy food but drink a coke with the meal you still wont get many nutrients, and whatever nutrients you do have coursing through you will be urinated out. All in all it robs you of your health little by little.

I'm truly amazed that this was posted today.

Because today, a friend and I were going to have an iced glass of Coca Cola. So I poured us each a glass and suddenly couldn't find the lid (to a 2 liter bottle that was half-full). We tore the kitchen area apart practically looking for this lid because we didn't want the coke to go flat.

Long story short, we decided to just drink the whole liter together.

I come on ATS tonight and BAM this topic is in front of me. I feel like I have been warned of how stupid that was.

Is carbonated mineral water or seltzer water bad?

Carbonation makes water somewhat more acidic, but studies have shown carbonated water like seltzer water does not damage teeth nor suck calcium from you nor block nutrient absorption.

So carbonated beverages should not be scapegoated when in fact it is all the sweetened and flavored varieties that contain additional solvents and chemicals that errode or prevent nutrient absorption.

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.

and actually, sparkling mineral CARBONATED ALKALINE water is very healthful!

I read somewhere that someone had noticed that children that drank a both carbonated and caffeinated beverage were more likely to have bully like behavior. It needed more studies though because they weren't sure if people that were normally bullyish just drank more carbonated caffeinated beverages. It was one of those coincidence things.

Wow, and I thought I used to be bad when I drank 1-4L a day. Strange thing, it made me crave nicotine less often when I was drinking soda. I think I am immune to caffiene, which is why I didn't get no withdrawal when I stopped drinking it altogether.

I used to drink about 2-3 cans of Coke a day. After a few months of this I noticed that I would get sudden attacks of nausea after consuming the first can of the day. Now I don't touch that sewage ever, and haven't for 8 months. I no longer get the nausea that I associated with consuming Coke.

Some people use Coca Cola to remove rust stains from metal. It can also clean the grime off a penny and I have an uncle that uses it to remove calcium stains from his toilets/sinks/bathtub. If it is capable of stripping rust and calcium stains, imagine what it's doing to your stomach/intestines/kidneys

Not to mention that high-fructose corn syrup is one of the leading causes of diabetes.
