Can Coke with Mentos harm you?

After people seeing videos of the coke and mentos explosion on youtube and Tv channels, People are totally freaking out. And I was wondering How come no one asked me this question? Well not until today, A friend of mine asked me if she would die if she ate mentos and drank coke with it.  Phew!!! so finally some one did ask me this. So lets solve this mystery.

The answer is No….. No….. and No….. you would’nt die if you drink coke with mentos or vice versa. People are capable of burping so unlike pigeons we cant die from expanding gases. If its too much it might make you throw up, but that’s about it. and nothing else. And if you really did try this it will make you belch so loudly that your entire neighbourhood may wake up! Just kidding.  But again there has been no death incidents registered so far. So It is uncertain that it really kills people. Coke and other soda beverages anyways harm you. see this article. Keep away from it is my advice to all.

    no it won’t make ure stomach explode…you’ll just bloat to the size of a basketball and cos of the amount of gas in ure belly you will just keep burping until all re gas comes out, and let ma tell you when you burp, your burps are so loud and so long that the neighbours could probably hear u!

    I tried it once and omg I was so big I looked abou 9 months pregnant and the belches I let out were so big, long and loud that it took me 5 hours to let all the gas out, it took me tht long cos apart from having 4 packs of mentos and 3 litres of diet coke I went out for dinner straight afterwards with my friend! Then once I had finishes eating, which was a lot, i was rubbing my stomc under mu shirt, some woman came up to me and shouted at me cos she thought I was pregnant! I said to her I wasn’t pregnant and right on que a I let a huge belch come out, and she just looked at me and walked away. but I did look pregnant and thought the dinner I just couldn’t stop burping, they just came out!
    So I spent the whole night rubbing my huge “pregnant” belly and belching all the gas out my stomach.
