“did you really think you could eat that much garbage without any side effects?”

One has to believe that the muscle fatigue is the LEAST of their problems.

In people with hypokalemia, a drop in blood potassium levels results in problems with vital muscle functions. Symptoms can range from mild weakness to serious paralysis, say Greek researchers who conducted a review of people who drank between two to nine liters of cola a day.

Two to nine liters? per day?

are you kidding me? did they expect there to be no side effects of that?

“We are consuming more soft drinks than ever before, and a number of health issues have already been identified including tooth problems, bone demineralization and the development of metabolic syndrome and diabetes,” and there’s increasing evidence that excessive cola consumption leads to hypokalemia, Dr. Moses Elisaf, of the University of Ioannina, said in the news release.

    WOW. 2 to 9 liters?!?!?!?!?!

    That’s crazy. I think I’ve consumed about 8 ounces of soda total in the past 2 years.

    You really start to realize how bad that stuff is for you when you try to go back to drinking it after you haven’t had it for a year, and it ends up making you puke. Since then, I haven’t touched soda.
