A New Zealand mother of eight has died after drinking 10 liters of Coca-Cola a day, a coroner's investigation heard.

Natasha Harris, 30, suffered a cardiac arrest that her partner believes was brought on by her massive soft drink intake.

Harris, from the southern city of Invercargill, was vomiting six times a week in the months leading up to her sudden death in February 2010, but she attributed it to stress.
The mom would become moody, irritable and have no energy without her daily dose of Coke, but the family did not suspect her habit was to blame, the Otago Daily Times reported.
Her partner, Chris Hodgkinson, told Otago-Southland coroner David Crerar Wednesday that Harris guzzled at least 10 liters a day.

"The first thing she would do in the morning was have a drink of Coke and the last thing she would do in the day was have a drink of Coke by her bed," he said.
"I never thought about it. It's just a soft drink, just like drinking water. I didn't think a soft drink was going to kill her."

Pathologist Dr. Dan Mornin told the court it was likely Harris had severe hypokalemia -- a lack of potassium in the blood -- brought on by her excessive consumption of soda.
He said she died from cardiac arrhythmia, and that her soft drink habit, along with poor nutrition and too much caffeine, contributed to her death.
Crerar has yet to determine a cause of death.

In a statement to The Southland Times newspaper, a Coca-Cola representative said that "grossly excessive ingestion of any food product, including water" could be harmful.
"We believe that all foods and beverages can have a place in a balanced and sensible diet combined with an active lifestyle," the statement added.


It has Diet on the label, it must be good for you.

10 liters is over 2 and 1/2 gallons.

Anybody who drinks 2 and 1/2 gallons of anything a day deserves to die.

10 liters is almost unfathomable to me. When I was 270 I would drink maybe 2 liters a day. 5 times that amount implies to me that she was just constantly drinking all day long. As people have said - that much of anything will kill you. 10 liters of water weigh about 20 lbs. About 55% of your body weight is water. So if she weighed, say, 200 lbs, she was drinking one fifth of the liquid weight in her body EVERY DAY. Your kidneys can't handle that kind of intake regardless of what it is.

I know I'm a Diet Coke addict, but I couldn't do that much a day. I have probably 3 20 oz bottles a day. I've had one today and it's been water ever since. But I am one of those people that constantly needs a beverage, I'm drinking something at all times. I don't know why that is.

If that was indeed the cause of her death, then the fact that it was Coke probably kept her alive longer than if she had been drinking water... Coke contains potassium.

2 and 1/2 gallons/day goes to show how far she had to go whaling on the Coke before she diluted herself to death.

Probably for the same reason this lady drank 2 and 1/2 gallons of Coke/day... women are obsessive and dumb.

The OP consistently starts threads which make him look idiotic.

However, since I now know its a troll account, it bothers me not.

Predicted stupid would make a thread on this. Don't even have to read his inane OP. She died from multiple causes. Says so in the story. She had a shitty food regimen, puked six times a week (look up 'frequent vomiting') combined with the 10 liters a day.

Did she die from directly guzzling 10L a day? Nope.

Not that Ol' Cunt Nugget will ever take notice of that. He's too busy knee jerking while swallowing the loads pumped forth from his Savior, Alex. Just nuzzling the balls gently while making a 'Umph' noise. Come to think of it, I'm willing to bet he doesn't swallow. He just opens his throat and esophagus, and it goes straight to his stomach, the amount of crap he believes.

Hi Kirk. :D

I thought for the longest time it was a Troll thing. But it's gone on for too long for it to be trolling. Can't be.

The reason it's so hard to just blankly accept him as a 100% troll (though obviously a lot of what he does is trolling) is that he puts so much effort into the character and maintaining the character.

He could do so much better though.
