Woman Drinks Nothing But Soda For 16 Years, Suffers The Consequences!

woman soda 16 years drink no water

Ever wonder what would happen if you drank NOTHING BUT SODA for close to two decades? Well, let us tell you a little story about what happens… HEART PROBLEMS HAPPEN!

At 31, a woman had been drinking nothing but soda for the past 16 years of her life, and she was diagnosed with a severe potassium deficiency and something called long QT syndrome — which causes erratic heart beats!

So how were they sure it was the soda? She did not have a family history of heart or hormone problems, and had admitted that since 15 years old, she hadn't had any water! She drank about 2 liters soda A DAY!

Then, they proved it: after a week of not drinking ANY soda (we bet she was having serious withdrawals!), her potassium levels went right back up and her heart problems disappeared!!

This just goes to show — you should probably act like an adult and drink some water from time to time! Jeez! Ha!

    Decent, intelligent people are dying every day from things over which they have no control and this this moron manages to survive? Seriously, this makes me yearn for some sort of social Darwinist basis to medicine in which fucking idiots should just be put down in order to save time/resources for those who actually deserve it. Only in America…

    Sure hope she did not to have too many if any potassium IV;s, those things hurt like crazy. I was in the hospital once for low potassium so I know about this. Glad she is OK.
    I too drink nothing but ice water all day long (then I hit the Scotch or wine).
    The only time when I drink soda is when I am in Mexico, where they make Coke with real cane sugar instead of that fructose stuff and go for the full on Coke, not Coke Lite).
