eek WATER or COKE !

WATER

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

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. Are you drinking the amount of
water you should every day?



COKE

1. In many states (in the USA) 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: 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 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. It will also clean road haze
from your windshield.


FOR YOUR INFORMATION:

1. The active ingredient in Coke is phosphoric acid. Its pH is 2.8. 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 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 glass of water or coke

Point number 3 sounds good cheap degreaser, hmmmmmmmmm might give that one a go

Re: WATER or COKE !

^ What he said.

Coke is about 83% water.

The same content of Sugar in coke is equal to, or less than the amount of sugar found in most commercial, mass produced fruit drinks.

Plus Stomach acid has a Ph of 1.6 anyway - so even the rumor that coke has a Ph of 2.4 debunks itself.

Just a thought - I wonder if the original source of that email came from XXXXX@marketing.pepsicola.com or XXXX@evian.com

Re: WATER or COKE !

It is still funny to read even if it isn't true.

The info about Water is definately true though...it is such an integral part of you, but so many people don't drink enough. You will notice the difference if you up your intake.

Re: WATER or COKE !

Coke™ is a good alternate to Drano™... try it it works.
Also it does clean your toilet if you leave it in your bowl overnight.

Re: WATER or COKE !

No that isn't what it means....it means that if you have eaten throughout the day, but haven't drunk any water...and feel hungry..that is the body saying it needs water..it is just that you perceive it is your body saying it is hungry...rather than it saying it is thirsty.
