A woman has drunk nothing but the world-famous fizzy drink for 16 years and almost risked her life in the process.

A woman has drunk nothing but Coca-Cola for 16 years.

The 31-year-old woman put her life in danger after consuming two litres of the fizzy drink every day, which forced her potassium levels to dramatically drop below average and her heart's electrical activity to become erratically fast.

Doctors advised the Cola-holic to give up the calorific soft drink and one week later her potassium levels were back to normal.

A study researcher at Princess Grace Hospital Centre in Monaco stated, "One of the take-home messages [resulting from this] is that cardiologists need to be aware of the connection between cola consumption and potassium loss, and should ask patients found to have QT [a measure of time between the start of the Q wave and the end of the T wave in the heart’s electrical cycle] prolongation about beverage habits."
