The Doctors: Death From Too Much Caffeine?
The Doctors wanted to take on the health ramifications of soda, after a 38-year-old’s 8 liter a day soda habit turned into a deadly cocktail because it was combined with an anti-anxiety medication as well as a liter of vodka a day. The coroners blamed her accidental death on the excessive ingestion of antidepressants made worse by excessive use of caffeine. The point The Doctors wanted to make was that doing anything like that to that much of an extreme can kill you, even water. The woman was likely dehydrated and suffering from other health issues, but the family of the woman explained that she chose to drink diet soda to satisfy her dry mouth that resulted from her medication.
