I was shocked by reading this... "Last week a little boy died in Brazil after eating MENTOS & drinking COCA COLA together. One year before the same accident happened with another boy in Brazil." SOURCE: ndtvblogs.com What do you say about this?

it is really strange to know this. coca cola must take some measures to let the people know about this otherwise more deaths can occur.but i am still surprised that how can this happen.

I am addicted to Coca Cola and until recently i thought i was the only one! I feel as though there is nothing else that quenches my thirst like coca cola. I can drink it constantly all day every day and nothing will stop me. I have cut down alot now. The only way that i did that was not to have any in the house and constantly down cordial. i do now though have about two litres of water a day after having coca cola cause i feel as though that is helping get rid of all the bad stuff in it.....

Wow... First off, you ever watch MythBusters? The main reason for the foaming of the combo are the crevices in the mentos' surface. I can only assume that by the time it gets into his stomach, it has to be a clean surface. Why is this significant? MythBusters tried to mix coke and mentos, but mentos with a Smooth surface, and it failed. Tell me if I didn't make sense, because something tells me I was unclear lol. I may be wrong, but it sounds like a huge lie, like they are just making this up to get attention....

I agreed to this news. it is totally possible, already the items like pepsi,cococola,miranta....all other similar items are branded as TOILET CLEANER. So nothing wrong or shock in this news, i hav also mentioned the same in varuious forums this is highly dangerous to drink soft drinks .

I never heard anything like this. After reading this I think this news should be made available to all people so that they be safe.
