I think you guys are overlooking the phosphoric acid, it is very harmful to the human body, especially in those quantities.

I believe she died of a cardiac arrhythmia. Most likely the caffeine that caused it.

Hmm, so 18 pints turns out to probably be around a 24 pack of cans.
Doesn't seem like a lot to me, but that much every day over a period of time,
definitely will do some damage I suppose.


That's 192 ounces, doctors usually recommend drinking 64 ounces of water per day, and most people don't even get that in!

That's a big factor and probably what destroyed her and child's teeth. Phosphoric acid binds with calcium and magnesium in the body, and not only that, but those two elements are integral in regulating blood sugar. Considering she was regularly getting nearly 1 kilo of sugar from the coke alone, there was no way she could keep her blood chemistry in check for long.

The 30-year-old’s family said labels on the bottles do not contain warnings about the drink’s possible addictiveness.
Christopher’s mother, Vivien Hodgkinson, said Natasha had “withdrawal symptoms” and would go “crazy” if the soft drink ran out.

I drink tons of soda. My teeth are fine. "Better than average", according to my dentist.

Lack of brushing and tooth care leads to rotting teeth.

There's probably some other factors involved. Not saying Coca-Cola is good for you at all, lol.
Not sure how much 18 pints is, but I've known many friends to drink a 12 pack to a 24 pack of cans a day.
One friend of mine drank so much of it while gaming he was getting really fat, so he switched to Diet Coke, but then found out that it was even worse for you so he switched to Coke Zero I think it was.
I've heard stories about putting a metal bold into a cup of Coke, and the Coke will eat it away eventually. So what does that mean for your body? lol.


You're looking at 9-18 pints, or 1-2 gallons of soda. (12 or 24 pack, respectively)


I drank 55 cans of pepsi in one day for a dare so I can get money to help pay for soem care for a dog I had. I got 120 bucks and that was enough to pay for it.... I was totally messed up for 2 days but it was worth it to help the pupper.


So 12 fluid ounces, multiplied by 55 cans...

12 * 55 = 660oz, which translates to 41.25 pints of pepsi.

Or just over 5 gallons...

$120... for "some dog", as you put it.

Guess life can be put into dollars. :laugh:

(please correct my math if I'm wrong here at all, because I don't want to be right)

And nothing of value was lost.


My sentiments exactly.

No, she died of stupidity.

the stupidity of people continues to amaze me. How can you not know that guzzling down 20 times the amount of sugar you need each day is bad for you.

You know what? It's 2013... We ALL know how bad soda is for you.... And the woman's husband is complaining that there were no warnings on the cans about it being bad for your health... Is he high???

1) your friends will probably start suffering from diabetes or die from some coronary disease, they are stupid
2) coke will not disolve metal, it's by far not acidic enough for that. Coke however will get rid of rust on metal but that is only because it has PH value lower than 7 because it contains phosphoric acid, orange juice (which has a much lower PH) will have the same effect. Simple chemistry

A mum's addiction to drinking 18 pints of Coca-Cola a day probably killed her, a coroner has ruled.
