Woman's Death Linked To Coca Cola Addiction

Coca Cola Addiction

Based on a recent coroner's report, a New Zealand woman's death has been linked to none other than a 2 gallon a day Coca Cola habit.

Although Katherine Harris's death occurred back in February 2010 the controversial story behind her death has yet to die down.

In fact, although the Wellington, New Zealand coroner's office, led by David Crerar, came the conclusion that the 31 year old mother of 8 died of a heart attack brought on by excessive consumption of the soft drink, Coca Cola, the largest beverage company in the world, refutes the coroner's finding.

With that said, a New Zealand division of the Atlanta-based Coca Cola corporation noted that experts could not agree on the cause of Harris's death.

Well, for all you newly sober alcoholics and addicts out there, not to mention those old timers, let this be a deterrence from transferring addictions.

Although Coca Cola is unlikely to affect you from the "neck up", apparently there is some speculation that it can give rise to cardiac arrest or heart disease.

Addiction in no regard is healthy, yet we address our addictions in the order that they kill us. Clearly it is undisputed that consumption of drugs and alcohol should be terminated above the termination of a soft drink, nevertheless keep it in mind; moderation.
