I neck about a litre of Diet Coke a day; the anti-psychotics I take sedate me and I rely on caffeine to lash my mind into a less moronic, rancid state. I also have about four espressos a day (the [link2post id=”766″]super-brilliant Indriya from the Nespresso ‘Pure origin’ range[/link2post]).
We are told in this news story that excessive consumption of cola can dangerously deplete potassium levels. Unsurprisingly for a health-scare story they list a few people who have had really nasty effects when they’ve been downing vast quantities of the stuff. So perhaps I should switch my caffeine intake to being more espressos per day.
Should I bollocks. I am not the slightest bit worried by this news story. This is another freaking health-scare story from some jumped-up fart who thinks he has the right to tell us all how to behave and ruin our fun. This kind of crap pisses me off. Sure, I can believe drinking 4 litres of cola a day is not the wisest of moves, but I’d find drinking 4 litres of water a day to be unpleasant. I am not worried by this.
