Water or Coke?

Water or Coke? 
I could not believe this.....  Very interesting 
 (well, really, I've believed it  for a long time.-Dr. Tang)

   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%.  

  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? 

   In many states the highway patrol carries        two gallons of Coke in the trunk to remove blood from 
 the highway after a car accident. 

     You can put a T-bone steak in a bowl of Coke 
 and it will be gone in two days. 

    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. 

   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.  

   To clean corrosion from car battery terminals: Pour       a can of Coca-Cola over the terminals to bubble 
 away the corrosion.  

  To loosen a rusted bolt: Apply a cloth soaked in Coca-Cola 
 to the rusted bolt for several minutes.  

   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.  

  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 

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

 Quick! send this helpful info on to your friend health conscious or not!!!!
