Water vs Coke

Felt like posting something but not enough time to think anything through, so just thought I'd chuck up this info I got emailed today. It's a bit American, but the facts still add up.

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

#3. Even MILD dehydration will slow down one's metabolism 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. Are you drinking the amount of water
you should drink every day?


#1. In many states the highway patrol carries two gallons of Coke in the trunk 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: Apply 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 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 the 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


#1. the active ingredient in Coke is phosphoric acid. It will dissolve a nail in about four days. Phosphoric acid also leaches calcium from bones and is a major contributor to the rising increase of osteoporosis.

#2. To carry Coca-Cola syrup! (the concentrate) the commercial trucks must use a hazardous Material place
cards reserved for highly corrosive materials.

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

Now the question is, would you like a glass of water?

or Coke?

I often wake up with headaches, and I found last year that having a glass of water when I woke up got rid of them quickly.
I remember from when I was at uni, that having Coke first thing in the morning felt something like being punched in the stomach!

Mmmm. Coke is good.
Actually, not really. I was converted to water a few years ago, as in, that became my favourite drink, which is a very healthy thought. I am proud of that. Drinking water makes you feel so much better at everything. And boiled water tastes disgusting on its own. You should try it.

MythBusters have gone to work on some of those 'facts'.

I'd still take the water over the Coke though.

Digger said...

Haha yeah, being punched int he stomach first thing in the morn always sucks.!

Yeah boiled water does suck, I can't understand why people would drink it!

Yeah vp, would love to see that MythBusters episode, have you seen it? Were there any specific ones they debunked?

In Asia, you have to boil the water, otherwise you can get sick. Just... you know. A side note.

Also, do you have pepsi?

PS. I like water. Cool. Refreshing. Water.

Gaaa-torrr-adddeeeee. H200000.

Digger said...

I'm trying to think of how I can make a comment about that that you and i would understand but other people wouldn't think sounds racist, so I'll get back to ya on that one on Sunday ok mate!

Most of the Coke stuff there is fiction:

Snopes is a great place to check out any story that does the rounds.
