Toothless Woman's Toothless Children Possibly Cola-Related


"Drinking large quantities of Coca-Cola was a 'substantial factor' in the death of a 30-year-old woman in New Zealand, a coroner has said. Natasha Harris, who died three years ago after a cardiac arrest, drank up to 10 litres of the fizzy drink each day…. 'The fact that one or more of her children were born without enamel on their teeth, should have been treated by her, and by her family, as a warning,' said Coroner David Crerar."
"Fifty million times a day/At home at work or on the way/There's nothing like a Coca-Cola/Nothing like a Coke…."

So the coroner is reported to have written, "…the fact that one or more of her children were born without enamel on their teeth…should have been treated by her, and by her family, as a warning."

But (human) children aren't usually born with teeth, period. What the hell was he talking about?

@limeonaire All of the tooth bits develop in the fetal environment.

@limeonaire, @hershmire : Seriously, guys, quit fooling with those pawns. We're trying to have a serious chess game here.

@Gef the Talking Mongoose I'm still trying to wrap my mind around the fact that Coke can rot your teeth before you're born.

@freetzy: I can only assume it's because by that point, the amniotic fluid was Coke.

I consider myself a humanist, but sometimes you have to let natural selection take over.

Is there ANYTHING that you should be drinking 10 liters a day of?
