After making my last short video, I got this email from a friend……..hmmm….coincidence or synchronicity???? She didn’t know what I put in my video or that I even created one!!
Anyways, I don’t know how much of this is true, I will test some of them, but that means then I have to buy some coke as I never have it around!!  WHAT IF they are true…….do you really want to be putting this into your body????


#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

#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??!!

  1. Excellent information, Jodi! Some facts I hadn’t found in my research, but adds another layer of reasons why we need to be drinking more water and less soda, coffee, tea, and juices loaded with sugar!

    Besides fatigue, fuzzy memory and joint pain, we can add obesity, diabetes and overall sickness to the list of dehydrated readers! Thank you for such necessary and urgent information.

  2. I’m so glad I don’t drink sodas anymore. Do we know if that’s true for other sodas? (diet). I would love to know what you find out from trying these yourself. I’m looking for a good way to clean the toilet (but do I want to pour the toxins down the drain).

    Thanks for posting this.

  3. Hello
    I love this post… I know first hand what the chemicals in COKE can do to you. My boyfriend works for a chemical plant and was burned a few years ago with phosphoric acid, nothing major just enough to scare the **** out of us. Even though the % they use in soda is nothing close to the % he was burned with it still is an alarming issue for my family everyday when he wakes to go to work.
    With that said… I still LOVE my PEPSI(not COKE)which still has phosphoric acid but not in such high %.
    I will be sending this post to him. THANK YOU for posting and bring this subject to others eyes. We all should drink our share of water.
    Have a great day!!
