    I hear some people are allergic to bread... some allergic to milk... and now of all things, artificial sweetners. That why I only drink stuff that has been distilled to remove all impurities and aged just to be sure.:new_all_coholic:

    Don't drink, don't smoke, don't overeat, exercise regularly, die anyhow.

    I don't plan on consuming the equivalent of 500 diet sodas a day for an extended period anytime soon. So I figure I should be relatively okay as far as that is concerned.

    Not so sure about the overmedicated octogenarian drivers who are known to "not see" red traffic lights around here, however.

    Carrots are bad for you to. Everyone who eats one eventually dies.

    my Sis in law just sent me this.

    WATER
    #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?


    COKE
    #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 away the corrosion.

    #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 windshield.

    FOR YOUR INFORMATION:
    #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!
    #More than interesting - phosphoric acid, in its more concentrated state is used to "etch" glass
    and steel .... something to think about ......




    I responded:
    So it will clean your system and keeps your pipes from rusting? Wow…I’m gonna drink more Coke! Send more Cops!!! (scene from night of the living dead)

    You know the funny thing…you don’t see people drinking coke and dissolving in 2 days. But a lot of people die from drowning in water! Which is a method of torture...waterboarding or cokeboarding? Yep...Proof that water is bad, coke is good.

    MMMMMmmmmm….Coke :Emoticon_hug:
