  • water or coke?

    not sure how true is this...

    Facts about 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 fuzz 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 aluminium 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 aluminium 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.

    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?

    Gosh .. I don't drink any water. No wonder my memory is bad & I feel tired so easily. I know I should drink more but I really like the taste of Coke better. I should change this bad habit!

            Hmm... and Coke used to be a cough medication?!

            Water-drinker here :thumps:
            I refuse to cave in to what I called 'sugared-water with all the chemicals'.
            Unless it's really really hot after lots of (swing) dancing which will be lemon tea.

              actually, i am pretty amused with the cleaning toilet part... anybody trying that?


              • #8
                But wouldn't leaving this stuff for an hour in the toilet attract ants? :sotong:

                  oh dear, i never liked drinking water but coke makes my teeth feel corroded and dirty (might be psychological). but nowadays when i'm bored in the office i'd keep drinking water because there's nothing else better to do. shall *try* to increase my intake of water!

                          does vanilla coke and lemon coke have the same effect?

                            I suspect so and i think Vanilla Coke has even higher sugar contents. *Faints*
