    You may have seen this before but it really is worth a read when your dreading the water you need to drink..:cool:


    1. 75% of Americans are chronically

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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?

    Also imagine how much are skin loves us with all that water :D

    I've not seen it before & it certainly is very interesting reading! Now, if only that said Sprite instead of Coke, it might have more an impact ;-)

    Wow!!! No I have never seen that before, bet they wouldn't want that printing on the side of their cans!!! But they should, they same way they have warnings on cigarettes. I hate seeing children drinking coke- even more now after reading that. Thanks for posting it.

    man that's quite scary! i wonder if it's just coke (and i presume pepsi) or if things like tango, dr pepper, fanta have similar "uses"!

    they say its the acid right, so that doesnt even make diet coke or coke zero any better does it?!

    no more coke ever.

    Exante - currently
    I am looking forward to having a glass of diet coke again - was such an addict before starting this diet that even though I knew some of that info from above - it will not put me off.
