GUEST,colwyn dane BS: H2O v Coke (58* d) H2O v Coke 17 Mar 01


Hi folks,

Water vs. Coke
The following useless/useful information is taken from an NG run by my ISP.



75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated.

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 shut down midnight hunger pangs for almost 100% of
the dieters studied at the University of Washington.

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 an amazing 79%, and
one is 50% less likely to develop bladder cancer.

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


COKE
No wonder coke tastes sooooo good:

In many states (in the USA) the highway patrol carries 2 gallons of Coke
in the trunk to remove blood from the highway after a car accident.

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 stains from vitreous china.

To remove rust spots from chrome car bumpers:
Rub the bumper with a crumpled-up piece of 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 a 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 help loosen grease stains.
It will also clean road haze from your windshield.

FYI: The active ingredient in Coke is phosphoric acid. Its PH is 2.8
It will dissolve a nail in about 4 days.

To carry Coca-Cola syrup (the concentrate) the commercial truck must
use the "Hazardous Material" place cards reserved for highly corrosive materials.

The distributors of Coke have been using it to clean the engines of
their trucks for about 20 years!!!!!!!



Are any facts (negative/positive) known about the other major 'Cola' drink, 'Pepsi'?

Regards,
Colwyn.
