NATASHA Harris, 30, has died after consuming up to 2.2 gallons of Coca Cola a day. Every day. Ms Harris, 30, of Invercargill in New Zealand’s South Island, died February 2010. The coroner, Mr David Crerar, that the extreme amounts of Coke played a role in the cardiac arrhythmia that finally killed her.

He calculated that drinking 10 litres delivered 970mg of caffeine, and more than 1kg of sugar a day:

“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.”

Ms Harris, a mum-of-eight, had been unwell for years. She drink no alcohol. She smoked 30 cigarettes a day. She ate little. Her teeth were rotten. Some of her children were born with no enamel on their teeth.
