    Pepsi In Large Doses is Fatal ...Vodka & Drugs Less So

    Now if she had been drinking eight liters of water along with a liter of vodka and all those drugs and still passed on would they have blamed the water? Hows about we just suggest that her lifestyle is what done the old gal in?


    Mum Died After Drinking EIGHT Litres Of Pepsi Max Every Day

    A mum-of-one tragically after drinking up to EIGHT litres of Pepsi Max a day, an inquest heard.

    Victoria Lane, 38, died from a mixture of “excessive” caffeine consumption and prescription drugs in April this year.

    Her lifeless body was discovered by son Reese, 17, at their home in Clayton, Newcastle-under-Lyme, Staffs - and he rang paramedics who were unable to revive his mother despite several desperate attempts.

    An inquest heard how Miss Lane would guzzle up to four two-litre bottles of Pepsi Max and one litre of Vodka every day, alongside medication for anxiety.

    Appearing at North Staffordshire Coroner’s Court, Reese told the inquest how his mother had been asleep when he returned home the previous night.

    ‘She was in the same position as I saw her the night before.

    I tried to wake her up but her jaw was completely locked. That’s when I started to worry. I called 999.

    ‘When mum was drinking heavily she could get through a one-litre bottle of vodka a day and four two-litre bottles of Pepsi Max’, he said.

    Miss Lane’s mother, Rosalyne (corr) Lane, 60, also told of how her daughter had ‘changed’ after a car crash at the age of 16, and had drank huge amounts of the fizzy drink to combat the side effects of her medication.

    ‘One of the side-effects of the drugs was that she had a very dry mouth and Pepsi Max was what she liked to drink’, she said.

    ‘I did question her about it because of the high amount of caffeine, but she told me it was fine.’

    Recording a verdict of accidental death, coroner Sarah Murphy said: ‘It is absolutely tragic that such a young lady who had overcome significant adversity and had managed to sort herself and who had so much life and so much to look forward to, died prematurely.’

    The caffeine in Pepsi max was probably why she could consume a liter of Vodka a day without falling asleep before the end of the bottle. If she had only been drinking 8 liters of Pepsi max, she would have lived at least to 42...

    Pepsi Max is addictive. Been there.

    Pepsi Max consumed on it's own will cause catastrophic sclerosis due to the Aspartame

    Pepsi Max consumed as a mixer will cause you to have a highly elevated blood alcohol content.

    Pepsi Max is toxic on it's own but that toxicity is many times magnified when mixed with alcohol. That means Pepsi Max with Alcohol will greatly accelerate sclerosis.

    I had a feeling this story was going to say Pepsi Max.
