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

Many people have difficulty trying to drink water because they are so used to drinking so many sweet drinks such as juices and soda.  I have found that if I start the day with water and not juice (that usually has sugar in it) I can drink water all day long.  It is recommended that you drink one glass of water first thing in the morning, one glass 30 minutes before you eat to aid in digestion, and one glass of water before going to bed will help prevent a heart attack.  The following recipe has natural flavor in it without the need to add any sugar so it will help you make the transition.  For all you coke drinkers, the following section will give your some motivation to change your drinking habits.


The Dangers of Drinking Coke

The active ingredient in Coke is phosphoric acid. It will dissolve a nail in about four days. Phosphoric acid also leaches calcium from your bones and is a major contributor to the rising increase of osteoporosis. The caffeine in your soda dehydrates your body so in actuality it does NOT satisfy your thirst. In order for major distributors of Coke to transport the Coca-Cola syrup the commercial trucks must have a Hazardous Material place card on their trucks which is reserved for highly corrosive materials. The distributors of Coke have been using it to clean engines of the trucks for about 20 years.  Are you really sure you want to be drinking that stuff.


Useful Things to Do With Coca-Cola


  1. In many states the highway patrol carried 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 chins.
  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 corrision. Apply a cloth soaked in Coca-Cola to the rusted bolt for several minutes.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
