New Zealand Woman, 30, Dies from Too Much Coke…A-Cola
Natasha Harris went into cardiac arrest and died at the young age of 30, and doctors have determined that her death was due to the fact that she drank at least 10 liters of Coca-Cola per day according to a report on BBC News.
At the time of her death, a coroner found that Harris had hypokalemia, or a lack of potassium in the blood caused by the enormous amount of sugar she consumed. Harris’ family said that she was addicted to the soda, and if she didn’t get her fix, she would go into withdrawal and experience shaking and an overall sick feeling. Harris had to have all of her teeth removed due to sugar decay from her drinking habit.
At least one of her children was reportedly born without enamel on his or her teeth. Doctors determined that this was a direct result of her addiction to Coke.
