Water vs Coke
Still want that Coke?
Everyone knows that water is important, but have you ever seen it written down like this before?
75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated. (Likely applies to half the world population.) In 37% of Americans, the thirst mechanism is so weak that it is often mistaken for hunger. Even MILD dehydration will slow down one's metabolism as much as 3%. One glass of water shuts down midnight hunger pangs for almost 100% of the dieters studied in a University of Washington study.
Lack of water, the #1 trigger of daytime fatigue.
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. 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 everyday?
No wonder Coke tastes sooo good: 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 or from road kill. 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 Coke into the toilet bowel, and let the real thing sit for an hour, then flush clean. The citric acid in the Coke removes stains from vitreous china. To remove rust spots from chrome car bumpers: Rub the bumper with a crumple-up piece of Reynolds Wrap Aluminum 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 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. 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 loosen grease stains. It will also clean road haze from your windshield.
The distributors of Coke have been using it to clean the engines of their trucks for over 20 years!
