Natasha Harris died on February 25, 2010, after her partner Christopher Hodgkinson found her seated on the toilet, slumped against the wall and gasping for air at their home in Invercargill on New Zealand's south island.
An inquest last year revealed that she would drink at least four 2.5 litre bottles of the drink each day, consuming more than twice the recommended daily caffeine consumption and more than 11 times the recommended sugar intake.
New Zealand coroner David Crerar said today that Ms Harris would not have died if it wasn’t for her dependence on Coke.
The coroner's report revealed Ms Harris suffered from a myriad of medical conditions, including a racing heart and 'absent teeth', which her family say was caused from Coke consumption.
Natasha Marie Harris was said to go 'crazy' if she ran out of the drink which she guzzled by the bottle.
'The first thing she would do in the morning was have a drink of Coke and
the last thing she would do in the day was have a drink of Coke by her bed.'
