What you didn't know about water & coke

What you didn't know about water & coke

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Did you know


75% of the world are chronically dehydrated.

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

_____________________________________________


So Coke or Water.

WATER
Lack of water, the #1 trigger of daytime fatigue.

One glass of water will shut down midnight hunger pangs for almost 100%
of the dieters studied in a University of Washington study.

Preliminary research indicates that 8-10 glasses of water a day could
significantly ease back and joint pain for up to 80% of sufferers.

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.

COKE

You can put a T-bone steak in a bowl of coke and it will be gone in two
days.

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 most.

To remove rust spots from chrome car bumpers: Rub the bumper with a
rumpled-up piece of Reynolds Wrap aluminium foil dipped in Coca-Cola.

To clean corrosion from car battery terminals: Pour a can of Coca-Cola
over the terminals to bubble away the corrosion.

To loosen a rusted bolt: Applying a cloth soaked in Coca-Cola to the
rusted bolt for several minutes.

To remove grease from clothes: Empty a can of coke into a load of greasy
clothes, add detergent, and run through a regular cycle.

Re: What you didn't know about water & coke

Its so true. People who drink coke (or similar) when they're thirsty are just dehydrating themselves even more.
Defeats the whole purpose really.

Re: What you didn't know about water & coke

they did all the coke myths recently on a show called mythbusters. the coke actually does work really well as a cleaner! the one about it disolving a t-bone steak was a myth though..

Good show, highly recommended!
