At one time I drank to much diet Pop and my kidneys started to hurt. I drink water and milk now.

News, When people attribute someone's untimely death to a Coke overdose, they're usually not talking about the world's most popular soda.
But experts in New Zealand say Natasha Harris' 2-gallon-a-day Coca-Cola consumption "probably" contributed to her death.

Ha! This woman also smoked just over a pack of cigarettes a day and had poor eating habits. That's why coke is only CITED in the cause of her death.

Still, 2+ gallons of coke per day seems to be an addiction. We all got our problems.

Try doing 2+ grams of 'coke' per day and see what happens. Ooo wee.

Yep, it did. Though not from the chemicals. If you read the article it is from diluting her body chemistry to where her organs could no longer function. Added to her already bad nutrition, that is well documented with physicians trying to get her to change, her body simply couldn't function.

You can do the same with any other liquid in a large enough volume.

Not a fan of coke, but portraying it like coke poisoning her rather then liquids diluting her body chemistry is downright disingenuous.

There's enough things in the world that are problems that there is no reason to lie.

Yeah, drinking 2 gallons of ANY liquid(even water) would be a contributing factor in ones death, add to that the other chemicals in Coke along with a poor diet and the outcome isn't going to be good.

I drank 2 gallons of coke once and got a tummy ache. After that, I decided it wasn't good to drink that much fluids anymore.

I don't beleive this for one minute. When some study or experts say this or that, often it is overlooked what else the person or people might have done to bring on their death...or their desease. I also see where now you are saying the cola probably contributed to her death, this is the same as saying it caused her death. Anyone who drinks that much cola has other bad habits as well. Drinking too much milk, unless it is non fat can be bad for you, becuase of the fat content. Even too much water isn't as healthy as some might think.

I just see these studies or findings interesting, but I think we need to take them with a grain of salt. If we believe all we are reading and hearing today, we would be afraid to get out of bed in the morning. Of course, if we don't get out of bed we will die from lack of exercise.

Well too much of anything is bad..look at people who die of drinking too much water. It does not seem like this woman had a good healthy diet either.
