    Default Coke or Water?

    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. The leaching properties of Coke is particularly alarming. Coke lovers beware!

    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.

    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.

    9. 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 what will you say if the waitress ask you, what do you want to drink? would you like a coke or a glass of
    water?

    Well the sugar and caffeine contents in coke is still somewhat bad for health, right?
    As complexity rises, precise statements lose meaning and meaningful statements lose precision.

    This reminds me of espn's thread: Do You Believe Everything You Read/Hear?

    It pays to be skeptical about what you read on the internet, in the newspapers or here in ClubSnap. Serious! And photographs shouldn't be believed offhand either. At best, they are interpretations of reality. At worst, they are totally deceptive. As photographers, we should be aware of fact, fraud and fiction issues in all its forms.

    Don't really like coke if you ask me, cos i will get the feeling of being thirsty after that or worse....the gas inside my stomach, make me kinda full and then later all the gas comes out.

    I prefer tea, green tea, milk tea etc.....
