        "Harris's family told the inquest she had all her teeth removed after they went rotten due to excessive soft drink consumption and at least one of her children was born with no enamel on its teeth."

         

        This is what we call in the detective business a "clue". When you have to have ALL OF YOUR TEETH REMOVED perhaps you aren't making the best dietary choices.

          She had other issues and if I am a betting gal, she was probably staring down a lot of co-morbidities due to drinking 2.5 GALLONS a day of coke, not just an arrythmia.

           

          Everyone has to go somehow...might as well enjoy it with a Coke and a smile. Wink

                  She should have just snorted the coke, she wouldn't have been able to ingest as much at a time.

                   

                  Seriously, though, that is terrible, and I really feel for her family, that is an awful way to lose someone, and it was so preventable too, which just makes it sadder.

                      It's a little comforting to know that shirking personal responsibility isn't purely an American phenomenon.

                        Every time a well-known runner dies (Micah True, Jim Fixx) we ignore those who claim running is bad for you, even when studies show that there are levels where running causes more harm than good.  I personally know four people who died while running.  I know no one who died from drinking too much Coke.  In fact, that's why it's news: because it's so odd and rare.

                         

                        So I'm not going to get too smug about the stupid Coke drinkers killing themselves.

                          Actually there are studies that show running too much has diminishing returns, not that it is bad for you. Left ventricular hypertrophy (aka athletes heart syndrome) is only dangerous when it masks another condition such as an arrhythmia or undiagnosed/uncontrolled high blood pressure or high cholesterol which is probably related to the person's diet and genetics and not their amount of running/exercise. Every article/study published saying running too much will kill you has come from the same group of 'scientists' who take partial statements from legitimate studies and twist them to their purpose. Unless you let dehydration, electrolyte imbalance or some other problem occur there is no way to die from running in an otherwise healthy athlete.
