water over coke

This is really an eye opener...Water or Coke?
We all know that water is important but, I've never seen it written down like this before.


WATER
1. 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated.

2. In 37% of Americans, the thirst mechanism is so weak that it is often mistaken for hunger.

3. Even MILD dehydration will ! slow down one's metabolism as much as 3%.

4. One glass of water will shut down midnight hunger pangs for almost 100% of the dieters studied in a University of Washington study.

5. Lack of water, the #1 trigger of daytime fatigue.

6. Preliminary research indicates that 8-10 glasses of water a day could significantly ease back and joint pain for up to 80% of sufferers.

7. A mere 2% drop in body water can trigger fuzzy short-term memory,trouble with basic math, and difficulty focusing on the computer screen or on a printed page.

8. Drinking 5 glasses of water daily decreases the risk of colon cancer
by 45%, plus it can slash the risk of breast cancer by 79%, and one is
50% less likely to develop bladder cancer.

And now for the properties of
COKE:

1. In many states (in the USA) the highway patrol carries two gallons of
coke in the truck to remove blood from the highway after a car accident.

2. You can put a T-bone steak in a bowl of coke and it will be gone in two
days.

3. To clean a toilet: Pour a can of Coca-Cola into the toilet bowl and let
the "real thing" sit for one hour, then flush clean. The citric acid in
Coke removes stains from vitreous China.

4.To remove rust spots from chrome car bumpers: Rub the bumper with a
rumpled-up piece of Reynolds Wrap aluminum foil dipped in Coca-Cola.

5. To clean corrosion from car battery terminals: Pour a can of
Coca-Cola over the terminals to bubble away the corrosion. (We have done this before - it works)

6. To loosen a rusted bolt: Applying a cloth soaked in Coca-Cola to the
rusted bolt for several minutes.

7. To bake a moist ham: Empty a can of Coca-Cola into the baking pan,
wrap the ham in aluminum foil, and bake. Thirty minutes before the ham is
finished, remove the foil, allowing the drippings to mix with the Coke for a sumptuous brown gravy.

8. To remove grease from clothes: Emp! ty a can of coke into a load of
greasy clothes, add detergent, and run through a regular cycle. The
Coca-Cola will help loosen grease stains.

9. It will also clean road haze from your windshield.

For Your
Info:

1. The active ingredient in Coke is phosphoric acid. Its pH is 2.8. It will dissolve a nail in about 4 days. Phosphoric acid also leaches calcium from bones and is a major contributor to the rising increase in osteoporosis.

2. To carry Coca-Cola syrup (the concentrate) the commercial truck must
use the Hazardous material place cards reserved for Highly corrosive materials.

3. The distributors of coke have been using it to clean the engines of their trucks for about 20 years! Now the question is, would you like a coke or a glass of water?

Incredible....thanks!

Incredible!!!! I encourage my friends and loved ones to stop drinking Coke...actually soda. Now I have this wonderful list. I quit drinking Diet Coke about a decade ago....not an easy task... There is an addictive quality to it. Once I got past the cravings I have never looked back!

How about Pepsi or Mountain Dew?

Is there such a thing as the least harmful soft drink or are they all awful?

I think the clear ones are less harmful than the dark ones, so, Sprite or 7-Up.

This is total, unfiltered BS.

Except it's all bunk... this stuff is known as Cokelore, and it's been floating around the internet for years. check out this link-

http://www.snopes.com/cokelore/acid.asp

Mythbusters recently did a show on cokelore and concluded that most of it is, in fact, total BS.

There are better reasons for not drinking sodas than these BS reasons- high sugar content, high calories, etc.

I challenge the OP to actually try ANY of these tricks (except the ham cooking- that just seems like an icky recipe)- Heck, I dare you to take a 2 liter bottle of coke and spray it on the engine of your car and see if it actually cleans it. I'm betting your mechanic will thank you for trying it.

Find me an actual doctor who will coroborate the "coke causes osteoporosis" nonsense. Seriously. You fine me an article in a reputable scientific or medical journal that says coke causes osteoporosis. Bet you can't, because they don't exist.

Bunk, BS, garbage, fake science. Don't like coke, don't drink it, but don't pass on stupid urban legends.
