    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

    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 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?

    If it can dissolve a nail in 4 days why the heck are we allowed to drink the stuff?! Seriously! I'm fully aware that it doesn't sit in our stomaches for that long but still...

    scary isn't it? Some beef extract that is used for flavouring crisps (or so I'm led to believe) is so hazardous in certain quantities that when shipping by air it can't go on passenger flights - it has to go on cargo only aircraft - beef crisps haven't passed these lips since I found that out!!

    really freaky stuff!

    diet coke...

    I was never a big fan of full sugar fizzy drinks but i did drink diet drinks.

    There was no water in the airport machine and i thought long and hard about whether i should have a diet coke (havent had one since i finished TFR) but I decided against it...

    I was like WOW - imagine i think diet coke is like something i consider bad now!??! My mindset has changed dramatically! lol
