CHERYL GIBBS: Inspirational Katie touched the hearts of so many in her short life

Have your say

An inquest into the death of 30-year-old New Zealand mother-of-eight Natasha Harris has ruled that her taste for Coca-Cola was a contributory factor.

Coroner David Crerar said her Coca-Cola consumption had given rise to cardiac arrhythmia, a condition when the heart beats too fast or too slow

Apparently she was drinking up to 10 litres of the stuff every day.

This is twice the recommended safe limit of caffeine and more than 11 times the recommended sugar intake.

But her partner, Christopher Hodgkinson, couldn’t see the harm it was doing.

He said that he thought it was ‘just like drinking water’.

Ten litres of Coke? Like water?

Sometimes you have to wonder at some people.
