    Someone e-mailed me this fascinating piece of information.

    It's enough to drive you to drink ...........


    .........more water. [​IMG] ......................


    Subject: WATER/COKE ......

    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, & difficulty focusing on the computer screen or 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.

    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: Empty 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. It will alsoclean 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?

    Whew! I guess I'm gonna be OK! Thank *goodness* I only drink Pepsi. [​IMG]

    Hey, I just thought.........

    If Coca-Cola is supposedly so good at removing grease, wonder why it doesn't "soak up the grease" from all the fatty foods we eat when we wash 'em down with an icy-cold Cola??!! Seems like the natural "fat-absorb" product. If only it'd work that way. [​IMG]

    Cheers......

    Yah, these bogus claims about Coke have been around forever.

    It will not disolve a nail in 4 days. It will not even disolve a piece of meat. Try it and see.

    I guess maybe this little tidbit here should have tipped me off to the exaggerated nature of the article's claims .......

    What is strange is that this same piece of "information" was posted here about a year ago. No, I am not going to run a search.

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

    8-10 glasses of water? Thats sounds a bit excessive. I probably drink a glass of "pure" water a day. Don't most liquids(soda, coffee, etc) contain high amounts of water anyways?
