How bad for you is Coca Cola?

This is really an eye opener.... Water or Coke?

We all know that water is important but I've never seen it written down like this before.

Water

1. 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated.

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.

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 (meat will completely dissolve).

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 aluminium 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 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 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 glass of water or coke?

Main difference, for me, is that pepsi taste more like toxic waste than Coke. But I've never heard of dissolving nails in Pepsi. In school we could dissolve a straight pen nib in less than an hour in Coke. You can also use it on your windshield to keep it from fogging up at night.

and although the sugar free like Zero which I love, does not contain the sugar it has it's own version of poisons... I try to limit my pop intake and when i can't drink one more ounce of water, green peppermint tea is nice

I don't know if that is a hoax or not but just the smell of pork roasting is enough to turn my stomach.

I wonder if Coca-Cola could increase its sales if it cut out the non-active ingredients, packaged it as an industrial cleaner, and sold it at Canadian Tire.

Immagine the TV ads for that: 'Can't get that stain out from your rug? Buy extra-strength Coke!'

It would still be bleach-free... Er... or maybe bleach companies would start advertising their bleach as coke-free so not as corrosive?

Try it with Venison, Bear, or Moose.


First, I don't pour soft drinks over my meat. Second, it's the reason you should be cooking pork all the way through. This is a surprise to the mentally challenged only.

...a little defensive are we.. and of course you miss the whole point of the thread, along with your stupid remark of; "This is a surprise to the mentally challenged only."

Seriously gerryh you must be the most miserable person alive, I don't feel sorry for you, I feel sorry for the people around you having to live with your negativity, rudeness and complete idiocy.

Fly larvae are probably higher in protein than the pork is.
Besides that, if you ever watched pigs being processed for the supermarket, you'd be even more freaked than seeing bugs appear.

Possible.. but Coke has acids and acids do tend to do a great job at cleaning.. i.e. pennies

The problem with Coke Cola is the sugar content, which if left unchecked will add a few pounds to you if you're a big soda drinker.

Also, the acid does destroy tooth enamel and rot your teeth.. soda mouth, end up looking like a meth head.

What's this Coke you speak of? I'm afraid my system hasn't touched that crap in months after swearing it off. Can't say I miss it or any other soft drinks.

Have you lost any weight in the process.. and good for you..

I used to drink 3 liters a day.. sorta like a cigarette habit I had to have a can in my hand.

Now I am drinking more Aquifina Plus+ and maybe 1 can of coke cola a day when I get a migraine because of caffeine withdrawal..

It's like Climate Change nay-Sayers.. there is always someone out there that will tell you breathing in exhaust fumes will cause you no harm.

In this case, will tell you coke does not harm to your teeth, body, whatever, when it clearly does.

Thanks! I did a bit but with the 'college diet', I gained that dreaded Freshman 15. I have been moving a bit more since I have got back home on the other hand. I've been doing a few runs, squats, sit ups and push ups as well as watching what I eat and how much I eat. I've upped my veggie and fruit intake and I have switched to mutligrain bread. I've also been drinking 8-10 glasses of water a day and I always start the day off with hot water and lemon juice.

I've gone from 180 to 169Ibs in the span of a week. I'd say I'm pretty proud of myself. And I get up bright and energized in the morning, too!

definitely. Coke does do a great job of cleaning bug guts and road grime off a windshield in a pinch though. I've done it.

Your link says it has potential. Pretty much ANYTHING you stick in your mouth has potential. Big deal. The link I posted deals in facts, not potentials.
And you haven't shown that Livescience is paid by pop companies.
