I wonder which is better for your health?

Water

  • 75% of Americans are dehydrated (likely applies to half the population).
  • The thirst mechanism in 37% of Americans is so weak that it is 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 dieters studied in a University of Washington study.
  • Lack of water is the number 1 trigger of daytime fatigue.
  • Preliminary research indicates that 8-10 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-time memory, trouble with basic math and difficulty focusing on the computer screen or on a printed page.
  • Coke

    1. If you place a T-bone steak (or a tooth) in a bowl of Coca-Cola, it will be completely disintregrated within 2 days.
    2. 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 Coca-Cola removes stains from vitreous china.
    3. To remove the rust from car bumpers : Rub the bumper with rumpled aluminium foil dipped in Coca-Cola.
    4. To clean corrosion from car battery terminals : Pour a can of Coca-Cola over the terminals to bubble away the corrosion.
    5. To loosen a rusted bolt : Apply a cloth soaked in Coca-Cola to the rusted bolt for several minutes.
    6. The active ingredient in Coke is phosphoric acid. It will dissolve a nail in approximately 4 days.
    7. Phosphoric acid also leaches calcuim from bones and is a major contributor to the rising in Ostoeoporosis.

    Now don’t get me started on the sugar content!
