Thanx for that. Not seen it before. Not only does it make me feel even better about the water but I've got some handy tips for cleaning the loo and greasy clothes.

I also will NEVER drink the stuff again x
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.

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.
