Woman Drank Only Soda For 16 Years – This Is What Happened

By

A blood test showed she had severely low potassium levels. And a test of her heart’s electrical activity revealed she had a condition called long QT syndrome, which can cause erratic heart beats.

She told her doctors that, since the age of 15, she had not drunk any water — soda (specifically cola) was the only liquid she consumed. She drank about 2 liters of cola daily, she said.
