Remember this email....any truth to it?

Water or Coke?
I could not believe this.....  Very interesting
 
 
                


 
 WATER

 #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?
 
 


 COKE

 
 #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
 windshield.
 


 FOR YOUR INFORMATION:
 
 #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?

    Some of the Coke 'facts' are rubbish i.e. disolving a steak.

    The one likes Cleaning a chrome bumper are true though.

    Pretty much everything there about coke is a myth, disproved on the US prog mythbusters.

    Coke has way too much sugar though, that's a fact.

    It tastes soooooo good though, for that reason, I will happily quaffe a 2ltr bottle in minutes.

    Nobody said they're infallible, just that they disproved most of the original post.

    You don't need to be the oracle to debunk that nonsense but if you don't trust them go ahead and waste a t-bone steak checking their results for yourself. Let us know how you get on.

    Fair point - I'll try to restrain myself. Somebody start a "moon landings were faked" thread and I promise to keep quiet.
