Recommended Posts


Assalmu Alaykum Wr Wb,


This below article my fellow nomads warns you against the dangers of drinking soft drinks especially "Coca Cola" & "Pepsi" and the causes and effects that take place in your body. Its and interesting and informative article to read, i think some of you might be in for a shock. But Anyways I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did.


Killing me sweetly with your drink....


The ‘hard’ truth behind a ‘soft’ drink


A local college in Delhi conducted a ‘cola competition’ recently which was won by a localite who consumed eight bottles of cola. But the boy collapsed immediately and died on the spot. This prompted the Principal of the college to ban the use of all soft drinks in the college. It is not just this college in Delhi, but many countries have banned the sale of aerated drinks because they are found to be harmful for the human body. Research has validated these claims and some of the ill-effects of soft drinks are as follows: These drinks contain various sugar agents that can cause cancer. Medical tests have shown that consumption of these sugar agents can also cause insomnia, irritability, laxity in one’s activities, headache and migraine. Twelve ounces of these aerated drinks on an average contain one ounce (9 teaspoons) of sugar and this according reduces the immunity power in our body.

Aerated drinks (Pepsi, Cola etc) contain harmful chemicals like carbon dioxide and carbonic acid. Medical tests conducted by Dr Clive Myake and his team from Dr Hegiver and Naval Institute have shown that the phosphoric acid contained in the soft drinks harm the teeth by destroying the enamel layer on it. Excess sodium content present in the soft drinks is capable of causing variations in the blood pressure and will harm the blood vessels and the kidneys.

75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated. (Likely applies to half the world pop.) 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 shut down midnight hunger pangs for almost 100% of the dieters studied in a U-Washington study. Lack of water is the #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-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 9%, and one is 50% less likely to develop bladder cancer.


Are you drinking the amount of water you should every day?


No wonder coke tastes soooo good:


1. In many states(in the USA) the highway patrol carries two gallons of Coke in the truck 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 crumpled-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 away the corrosion.


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

7. Cola drinks contain phosphoric acid, sugar, caffeine, colouring and flavouring. Human teeth dissolve when placed in cola, as do iron and limestone. And not in weeks or months but in a couple of days.


8. 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. It will also clean road haze from your windshield.


9. The active ingredient in Coke is phosphoric acid. Its Ph is 2.8. It will dissolve a nail in about 4 days.


10. To carry Coca-Cola syrup (the concentrate) the commercial truck must use the Hazardous material place cards reserved for Highly corrosive material.


11. 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 a coke?"
