This may sound a bit harsh but,....

This is called survival of the fittest.
The weeding out process.
Thinning of the herd.

This is why all ALL ALL drugs should be legal.
There will be a massive amount of deaths initially and then?????

Then, the rest of us who aren't F****ING stupid will have more oxygen with which to breath.
The world will be a better place and we will all be better off for it.

What is sad is what she chose to put her family thru.
When I pray tonight, I will pray for them.

Good man.
I wish there were more people that thought like this..
Then again, the people who dont think like this are probably the ones who would die

Subjects like this bring to mind the unfortunate incident a couple weeks ago when that Military jet crashed into those apatment buildings. I can't remember if there were any casualities but if there were, I wonder if the person who died decided the day before to quit smoking, drinking soda, ect.
The point I am trying to make is that quitting this or that may be good and healthful but does not guarantee that one will live to see tomorrow. There are too many other variables-accident, murder (or murder-suicide), misadventure, sudden and acute illnesses totally unrelated to whatever bad habit one has.
Stoppng this or that may increase your chances until the car ahead of you on the freeway loses control, you slip and fall in the shower, or the leaky gas line on your block blows up your house and a couple others, drop dead from a heart attack having had no indication of heart disease or you've eaten e coli from that restaurant you like so much...I can go on and on.
Life is chock full of reasonable assumptions but ZERO absolute guarantees.
Life has a 100% fatality rate. When it is time for you ticket to be punched, you will be gone and there are a thousand ways for that to happen...it doesn't even have to be your fault...its maybe no one's fault (natural disaster).
I'm not advocating bad habits...just sayin'

I don't drink soda, I'm a coffee drinker-even in my widest imagination, as much as I love coffee could I see myself drinking as much java as that gal drank CC...holy moly

Phosphoric acid is a known contributor to increased rates of renal infection. Diabetes would likely be a risk with certain genetic profiles, although other factors would also be involved. I would tend to suspect, personally, that diabetes risk would be higher in those countries where Coke contains High Fructose Corn Syrup, rather than sugar.

I spent probably six years myself on an average rate of four litres of Coke a day. Although in Nimbin, I largely went cold turkey, at the moment I'm back on anywhere between 1.25 to 4 litres of Pepsi a day. I find Pepsi marginally less acidic.

I tend to think, to be honest, that if Coke was as lethal as most people claim, it would almost certainly have killed me by now. Phosphoric acid and HFCS are both highly undesirable substances; there is no question of that. It would be appreciated if the Company were willing to switch to citric acid (lemon juice) instead of phosphoric, although I believe Coke already does contain a certain amount of lemon juice.

My advice would be to enjoy in moderation, with moderation defined as anywhere south of 2 litres a day. As long as you do that, however, I don't believe that Coke on its' own is likely to cause lethal health problems. It may certainly act as a contributing or accelerating factor in certain conditions, such as either renal problems or diabetes, as mentioned; but I would not expect it to be the sole cause, assuming moderate consumption.

Haven't had any soda in over five years now. Constant toothaches throughout high school scared me away from really sugary stuff.

The only time I've had soda after I quit, was in a shot with Rum. Two shots actually, and the soda was Coke as you guessed.


Another time was with my vegan friend who ate a pizza with meat on it, and then he dared me to sip some soda.

Soda covers my teeth in a thick film and I just feel really nasty afterwards. Even in the low amounts I've consumed since quitting.

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.


Hmm then it wasn't a study, it was just a comment, somebody noticed such kids crash after a sugar/stimulant spilke, as we all do.

Caffeine is a stimulant - and yea like all things if we keep stimulating, then we 'crash' or depress after the stimulation wears off.

Which is why stimulants are generally addictive - the need to keep adding more caffeine/soda into the system to avoid crashdepression.

I drank a lot of that stuff and got T2 by 35. HFCS is pretty bad, it actually gives you the disease.

Yes, I watch out for that stuff, it is awful. Diabetes runs in my clan all the way back to great-grandparents...I am insulin resistant, so I watch out for the HFCS. Gotta love that commercial where the perky family lady says 'its just like sugar'....I give that commercial the double-bird every time I see it

Coke cant be THAT bad for you. the product has been around for like 100 years.

That chick had an eating problem.

Im sure it wasnt just coke.

Im guessing she was well over 300 pounds.

Just the expansion of her belly to consistantly contain the liquid.

Bet she was HUUUUUGE.

Any pics of this Coke drinker?

Coke may have been around for 100 years, but as food technology/chemistry changed over the decades, I'll bet the formula has changed drastically as well. In my view, the Coke 100 years ago was probably healthier than it is now (minus the Cocaine, lol).

well she deserved to die,

Everyone with a brain who has been around for the last 20 plus years knows that COKE is deadly. In Romania they use it to clean toilets and drains....what else do i need to say.

The woman who died was a waste of life.....8 litres a day??? Most people don't even consume that amount in WATER!!!

Way back when I was in high school, I read the Electric Kool Aid Acid Test by Tom Wolfe, the story of some people traveling in a hippie van and doing lsd, and in one chapter he describes putting items in a glass of coca cola and the cola dissolving said objects. Yes it is acidic.

Brilliant, except that a lot of drugs are less toxic than coke


I drink too much Coke myself (though not 8L a day!!), gotta give it up or my fate will be the same as this woman.

8 litres of coke? Really? Why...? I mean even 30 years are much for that kind of a treatmen to ones body.

It's sad that she died, but one sample isn't really convincing proof, and the fact that she drank 8 liters a
day for what - 7+ years is a testament to the safety of coke drink?
If people use one sample as proof she died from the negative effects of the drink, then surely one
person can use one sample to say the drink is safe?
