An interesting story was released yesterday about a 30 year old woman who drank 7 liters of coca cola a day, that’s almost two gallons, that lead to her death.
It really is too bad that most people don’t really know much about health and what causes disease. Even the simple fact about how bad sugar is for the body is something that most people don’t know.
Her partner had no idea that drinking that much coke was bad for you. He said, “I never thought about it. It’s just a soft drink, just like drinking water. I didn’t think a soft drink was going to kill her.” But, it’s not water, it’s junk food and as I’ve said many times, it’s deadly.
He now thinks that cola should come with a warning label. Anything with sugar in it should come with a warning label in my opinion.
Imagine, at 30 she already had all her teeth removed! And, still she had no idea anything was wrong! This was in New Zealand too, where people are generally more healthy than they are in the US.
She would become moody and had no energy if she didn’t have her fix. That’s a big clue for you, if you think something you really love might be bad for you then see if you can get off it without discomfort.
The next test is to stay off it for three weeks. After being away from a problem food for awhile the body stops defending against it so when you have it again your body will react strongly to it. That’s the elimination technique, it works really well to let you know what is up with your diet, especially things you really love to eat.
Another factor is that she had 8 children. Having children is a huge burden to a woman’s body. Among other things it is a huge drain on the adrenal glands.
The main symptom she had was heart cardiac arrhythmia, an abnormal heart beat. Hher heart would “pump like mad,” This is a symptom of possible potassium deficiency. Makes sense because the rest of her nutrition was pretty bad — potassium is found in vegetables and fruits which it sounds like she wasn’t eating at all.
If you suspect you have a potassium deficiency you might want to consider eating more fruits and vegetables. Not too much fruit though, even fruit sugar can add to adrenal fatigue. And, if you don’t usually eat vegetables or fruits then you might consider taking a potassium supplement short term.
Eating the right foods and avoiding processed foods is essential to good health. If you think you have a problem then get proactive and learn how to take care of yourself. There are a lot of articles on my site here that will help you with that.
