Would you like a Coke or a glass of water?

This is really an eye opener.... Water or
Coke? We all know that water is important but I've
never seen itwritten 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 Universityof 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 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 the question is...
Would you like a Coke or a glass of water?
