Drinking is a serious health hazard, but not only alcohol can be blamed for its severity. According to reports, Coca Cola as well can be a health hazard, but not in minute amounts. In order to actually die from Coca Cola you need to drink approximately 2.2 gallons of it for a number of years. So drinking Coca Cola moderately can't really kill you, but it's the over consumption. According to reports from TVNZ a woman from New Zealand named Natasha Harris died from a Coca Cola addiction. During her life she managed to lose her teeth which rotted off and she gave birth to at least one child without tooth enamel. These incidences were as of a direct result of her Coca Cola addiction.

Her partner said that she suffered withdrawal symptoms if she didn't drink the stuff. Natasha, mother of 8, died way back in February 2010 following a cardiac arrhythmia, but the medical examination after her death was one to be noted. The Coroner gave a report earlier this month:

"I find that, when all 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."


The examination after her death revealed an enlarged liver with fatty deposits due to too much sugar, a pathologist said. Low potassium in her bloodstream may also have been linked to the soda. Harris apparently consumed more than two pounds of sugar and 970mg of caffeine a day; experts say even 500mg is dangerous. Coca-Cola said it was "disappointed" about the coroner's emphasis on Coke in Harris' death, though his report did state that the company "cannot be held responsible for the health of consumers who drink unhealthy quantities of the product."
