Too much Coca-Cola consumed over a long period of time can indeed be fatal, according to a medical report out of New Zealand. An analysis by David Crear, a coroner in New Zealand, finds that a local resident, Natasha Harris, drank herself to death with Coca-Cola.
Harris drank 10 liters a day of Coke. The coroner, David Crear, maintains that the mother of eight would not have died on Feb. 25, 2010 from cardiac arrest if she hadn’t imbibed huge quantities of the soft drink.
According to a report in the Busselton-Dunsborough Mail, Harris was addicted to Coca-Cola and would get headachy and depressed if deprived of her daily dose.
Crear said, “I found that, when all of the available evidence is considered, were it not for the consumption of very large quantities of Coke by Natasha Harris, it is unlikely that she would have died when she died and how she died.”
