I'm not talking about that kind of coke either .......

A lady in New Zealand passed away lately (at the ripe old age of 31) and the coroner thinks it may have had something to do with her coca cola intake.

Seems she was averaging 2.6 gallons a day.  Ask anyone, ANYONE, that knows me and they'll tell you I am a serious "coker" myself.  (Especially the kind we get around El Paso. The mexican kind, made with REAL sugar!!)

That being said, this ladies intake even made ME stop and say WTF?

Now I'm no doctor but, honestly, 2.6 gallons of anything ingested everyday is probably not good for you.

Apparently, no one in her family was worried about her, (despite her flying into rages, getting the shakes and basically acting like a detoxing heroin addict when she didn't get "coked"), because none of the ingredients in coke are illegal and the bottle doesn't have any warnings on it about consuming to much.

I'll say it again ... I'm no doctor but, honestly, 2.6 gallons of anything ingested everyday is probably not good for you.

They also didn't seem to concerned over the fact that her heart would race, her liver was swollen, and she had to have what was left of her teeth pulled because they were rotting.  She also smoked heavily and often skipped meals ... lot's of them.

WTF?  (People, for the love of God, pay attention to your loved ones!)

Dr. Christopher Holstege, chief of medical toxicology at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, said

To me, it sounds like she was not a healthy woman in any way, shape or form."
