*-- Why We Shouldn't Drink Coca-Cola --*
I absolutely LOVE cherry cola-cola, but everyone is always saying how bad it is for you to drink pop in general, but especially coca-cola. It turns out, coca-cola really is a horrible drink. The active ingredient in coke is phosphoric acid. It will dissolve a nail in four days. Phosphoric acid also leaches calcium from bones and is a cause of osteoporosis. When the syrup is transported, commercial trucks must use a hazardous materials place card in the truck which is reserved for highly corrosive materials. The distributors of coke use it to clean the engines of the trucks and have been for around 20 years! If these are not reasons enough, below is a list of other uses for coca-cola that will make you rethink putting that substance in your body!
-In some states highway patrol men and women carry 2 gallons of coke in the trunk of their cars and will use it to removed blood from the highway after a car accident.
-A bowl of coke will disintegrate a T-bone steak in 2 days.
-Use a can of coke to clean a toilet. Pour it into the bowl and let it sit for an hour. The acids in coke will remove stains from vitreous china. Flush and it will wash all the stains away.
-Rub the bumper with a rumpled up piece of aluminum foil (Reynolds Wrap) dipped in coke to remove rust stains from your bumper.
-Add a can of coke into your load of laundry if you have greasy clothes, add detergent, and use your normal cycle. It will loosen all the stains from your clothes.
-A can of coke will clean road haze from your windshield.
-Empty a can of coke into a baking pan, wrap the ham in aluminum foil, and bake. 30 minutes before the ham is done, take off the aluminum foil and allow the drippings to mix with the coke for a gravy.
-Pour a can of coke over the terminals to bubble away corrosion. Use a cloth soaked in coke on the rusted bolts for several minutes.
The fact that Coca-Cola is used for these purposes are reason enough for me to stop drinking it, I don't know about you!
