Facts About Drinking Water Versus Coke

  This was sent to me (Rob) from a scientist. I DO know that the coke on battery acid is FACT. AND, the dehydration issue with lack of water drinking is also FACT.

#1.    75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated.
          (Likely applies to half the world population)
#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?

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
