Water vs. Coke
What would YOU like to drink?

75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated. (This likely applies to half the world population.)

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

Even MILD dehydration will slow down one's metabolism as much 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).

Lack of water is the #1 trigger of daytime fatigue.

Preliminary research indicates that 8 to 10 glasses of water a day could significantly ease back and joint pain for up to 80% of sufferers.

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.

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.


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 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: Applying 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 the 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 a load of greasy clothes, add detergent, and run through a regular cycle. The Coca-Cola will help loosen grease stains.

Coke will also clean road haze from your windshield.


The active ingredient in Coke is phosphoric acid. Its pH is 2.8. 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 in osteoporosis.

To carry Coca-Cola syrup (the concentrate) the commercial truck must use the Hazardous Material place cards reserved for highly corrosive materials.

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 glass of water or Coke?



ive been drinking sodas all my life. . .never had a thing for water!! i drink mtn dew every single day and i'm as healthy as can be. . .so coke it is for me!!


Coke is amazing.


i didn't read that

think i'll stick with water. :) like it better anyways!

67% of Statistics are fiction.

Truthfully those numbers are skewed. Nonetheless, Coke or sodas in general are namely bad for your health, or poor choices because of the sugar content.

The high sugar has implications on insulin resistance, sustained energy, and weight gain. Alot of people don't put 2 and 2 together to realize the 5 sodas they drank that day are equivalent to a 4th meal.

Also the 'dehydrating'.. or diuretic effect of drinking "coke" or other caffeinated beverages is exaggerated... the fact is the body quickly develops a tolerance to the diuretic effect of caffeine and this is generally not a large contributing factor to dehydration.

Also, because one drinks a soda or "coke" doesn't mean they are lacking water -- they are still getting hydration. Perhaps not quite as efficient as water and a bit of sodium.. but still hydrating nonetheless. Coke is mostly water, as are most 'drinks'.

Not to disagree with you -- the bottom line I agree with -- Water over Coke --.. These numbers are just a bit over the top and carry alot of misinformation/misconceptions.

I would drink water, but purified water, not common water, i would drink destilled or purified water, i don`t trust what comes out of my kitchen sink :O !!!!!!!!!! maybe by NOT drinking destilled or purified water, and drinking common water is maybe one of the reasons or factors why people get so sick, and why so many health conditions exist. I have a hypothesis that some cancers could do with what type of water we drink daily, who knows, right ??? Destilled or purified water might help avoid diseases, it is my belief or opinion.
