I don't know if this has ever been posted or not but I couldn't find anyplace where it has. It was just sent to me in an emial:


Water or Coke?
I could not believe this..... Very interesting





WATER


#1. 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated.
(Likely applies to half the world population)




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






#3. Even MILD dehydration will slow down one's metabolism 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. Are you drinking the amount of water
you should drink every day?






COKE






#1. In many states the highway patrol carries
two gallons of Coke in the trunk 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: Apply 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 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 the load of greasy clothes, add detergent, and run
through a regular cycle. The Coca-Cola will help loosen
grease stains. It will also clean road haze from your
windshield.







FOR YOUR INFORMATION:


#1

the active ingredient in Coke is phosphoric acid.
It will dissolve a nail in about four days. Phosphoric
acid also leaches calcium from bones and is a major
contributor to the rising increase of osteoporosis.







#2.
To carry Coca-Cola syrup! (the concentrate) the
commercial trucks must use a hazardous Material place
cards reserved for highly corrosive materials.





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


or Coke?

I think the dehydration issue is based on the assumption that if your urine has color, you are dehydrated. I think color in the urine is more of a rule of thumb for light dehydration.

I bought a 32oz nalgene bottle for my EDC backpack. I've lost at least ten pounds in the last month just switching from soda to water. I carry around a bunch of those zero calorie lemonade and iced tea flavor packets for water bottles if I'm not feeling the plain water.

MythBusters did a show "busting" most of the things you say Coke will do. You may want to check it out. If I remember correctly the only thing it did was to remove blood.

And Mythbusters is what? A TV show right? That would intertainment not science as much as my people would like to believe.
Guess you never cleaned your battery terminals with coke have you?
Point of the post is it is not healthy at all.

By the way if you go to the Choice Beverage warehouse in Lowell you can get cases of glass bottles of RC made with sugar. :thumb: Leaves you with visions of Lynn Anderson singing the RC song.
