20 Practical Uses for Coca Cola… Proof That Coke Does Not Belong In the Human Body

By thoughtpursuits.com

1coketoilets-930x360Coke is the most valuable brand in history, and “Coca-Cola” is the world’s second-most recognized word after “hello.” However, the beverage itself is an absolute poison to the human metabolism. Coke is very close to the acidity level of battery acid and consequently it can clean surfaces equivalent to and often better than many toxic household cleaners.

It’s cheaper and easier to buy Coke in some third world countries than it is to access clean water. Coke uses “public relations propaganda” to convince consumers and entire nations that it is an “environmental company” when really it is linked to pollution, water shortages, and disease.

People who consume soft drinks such as Coke have a 48% increase in heart attack and stroke risk, compared to people who did not drink the sodas at all or did not drink them every day. A study published in the journal Respirology reveals that soft drink consumption is also associated with lung and breathing disorders including asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

The carbonation in Coke causes calcium loss in the bones through a 3-stage process:

  1. The carbonation irritates the stomach.
  2. The stomach “cures” the irritation the only way it knows how. It adds the only antacid at its disposal: calcium. It gets this from the blood.
  3. The blood, now low on calcium, replenishes its supply from the bones. If it did not do this, muscular and brain function would be severely impaired.

But, the story doesn’t end there. Another problem with most Coke is it also contain phosphoric acid (not the same as the carbonation, which is carbon dioxide mixed with the water). Phosphoric acid also causes a draw-down on the body’s store of calcium.

So Coke softens your bones (actually, makes them weak and brittle) in 3 ways:

  1. Carbonation reduces the calcium in the bones.
  2. Phosphoric acid reduces the calcium in the bones.
  3. The beverage replaces a calcium-containing alternative, such as milk or water. Milk and water are not excellent calcium sources, but they are sources.

Esophageal cancer was very rare two generations ago — now, it’s common. The basic mechanism works as follows:

  1. Mechanical damage to cells is a huge risk factor for cancer. It’s why asbestos particles, for example, cause lung cancer.
  2. All soft drinks cause acid reflux (stomach acid rising up past the esophageal valve). This is more pronounced when the body is horizontal (as in sleeping), but the sheer volume of Coke and soft drinks consumed in the USA means the acid reflux is well past the danger point. Any time you ingest a gassy drink, you are going to get belching–and acid into the esophagus. How much is too much? The research doesn’t say where the limit is–it only shows that most of us are far, far, far past it.
  3. tomach acid dissolves tissue — that’s its purpose. The stomach lining does not extend into the esophagus, so the lower esophagus gets damaged by acid far more frequently in soft drink users than in non soft drink users. This results in a radical increase in cell mutations, along with a far higher level of free radicals.

20 Practical Uses For Coke

Coke acts as an acidic cleaner. The amount of acid in soda is enough to wear away at the enamel of your teeth, making them more susceptible to decay. In tests done on the acidity levels of soda, certain ones were found to have PH levels as low as 2.5. To put that into perspective, consider that battery acid has a pH of 1 and pure water has a pH of 7.

To prove Coke does not belong in the human body, here are 20 practical ways you can use Coke as a domestic cleaner:

  1. Removes grease stains from clothing and fabric
  2. Removes rust; methods include using fabric dipped in Coke, a sponge or even aluminum foil. Also loosens rusty bolts
  3. Removes blood stains from clothing and fabric.
  4. Cleans oil stains from a garage floor; let the stain soak, hose off.
  5. Kills slugs and snails; the acids kills them.
  6. Cleans burnt pans; let the pan soak in the Coke, then rinse.
  7. Descales a kettle (same method as with burnt pans)
  8. Cleans car battery terminals by pouring a small amount of Coke over each one.
  9. Cleans your engine; Coke distributors have been using this technique for decades.
  10. Makes pennies shine; soaking old pennies in Coke will remove the tarnish.
  11. Cleans tile grout; pour onto kitchen floor, leave for a few minutes, wipe up.
  12. Dissolves a tooth; Use a sealed container…takes a while but it does work.
  13. Removes gum from hair; dip into a small bowl of Coke, leave a few minutes. Gum will wipe off.
  14. Removes stains from vitreous china.
  15. Got a dirty pool? Adding two 2-liter bottles of Coke clears up rust.
  16. You can remove (or fade) dye from hair by pouring diet Coke over it.
  17. Remove marker stains from carpet. Applying Coke, scrubbing and then clean with soapy water will remove marker stains.
  18. Cleans a toilet; pour around bowl, leave for a while, flush clean.
  19. Coke and aluminum foil will bring Chrome to a high shine.
  20. Strips paint off metal furniture. Soak a towel in Coke and lay it on the paint surface.

Now can you imagine what is does to your stomach lining? 

Who needs the ‘household and cleaning’ section at the hardware store when we have Coke.

  1. Real Woman of God

    Wow. I knew it cleaned your battery (or build up around it). Didn’t know it did the other stuff. Good to know. Thanks for the info!! Hmmm, I wonder if Pepsi does the same thing? Being a healthcare professional, this is very important information to pass onto patients. Thanks again

  2. Joey

    I’m so glad I stopped drinking that stuff a LONG time ago. I still didn’t know it was this bad though! One thing that article missed was the extremely high amount of sugar and high fructose corn syrup in these sodas.

  3. Kim

    are you kidding me? I remember reading the history of drugs and was seeing how cocaine was used in the original formula of coke. This is why I rather drink just plain old water.

  4. Taura Helms

    This explains why my teeth would ache after drinking it. I just stop drinking sodas. Remember that woman in New Zealand that recently died off of a 2 gallon a day Coca Cola habit? She wouldn’t ever drink water. She was 32 or 33 and it completely rotted her teeth. She left behind 4 or 5 children. I’m done drinking it.

  5. ryan anthony alfonso

    WOW! I’ve been hearing this for a while now, but now that EX MINISTRIES is talking bout it and everybody knows EX MINISTRIES IS THE TRUTH NETWORK!!!!!!!!!! People know where to look to find porn, people no GEIKCO SAVES YOU A TONNE ON CAR INSURANCE ……….. I BELIEVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’LL NEVER CONSUME COCA~ COLA……….. THIS DRINK WAS MADE POPULAR IN TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO DURING AMERICAN MILITARY OCCUPATION AND A SONG WAS EVEN COINED FROM A PLACE CALLED POINT CUMANA THE SONG WENT LIKE THIS DRINKING RUM AND COCA~COLA DOWN BY POINT CUMANA IT WAS SONG BY TWO WHITE AMERICAN SISTERS OR SO THEY CALLED THEM SELVES CAN YOU IMAGINE WHAT COKE WITH ALCOHOL DOES TOO YOUR BODY?

  6. Mara

    The only soda people should drink is plain seltzer. Mix that with 100% juice and you get something of an Italian soda and a way healthier sweet beverage.

    On another note, has anyone noticed that more and more beverages have acesulfame potassium in them?

  7. Chiquita

    0MG. I don’t drink Coke, but I do Wish I Knew It got gum Out of hair when I WAS a kid. MY mom had to Cut Patches Of MY hair, because Of Jealous Kids.

  8. HB

    EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT PIECE! I turned may back on soft drinks like Coca Cola about 13 years ago and as a health/fitness professional I have said to many people how damaging soda pop is to the human body that pretty much it’s unfit for human consumption. This article says it all in awesome detail and the kicker is that this along with other soft drink products will be on the dinner/food tables of many homes across the country come Thanksgiving. So along with the common staples like chitterlings, turkey, pot roast and just about every starchy predominating food product known to man together with coke many folks have a hot date with indigestion syndrome come Thursday then want to complain they need to lose 25 pounds but don’t want to take steps to change their behavior! I’m going to share this article! People will do better when they get wisdom and know better!

    As an athlete in school I’ve heard that soda was bad for muscle growth and now I know the other reasons also. I’m planning to tell others about the effects.

    I like how people exclude certain facts or pieces of information that may not support the point that they are trying to make. For example, dietary factors in calcium deficiency within the body has conveniently been disqualified in the deduction of your claim. Your assert is that the consumption of coke results in calcium deficiency, conveniently disregarding whether or not its consumption was within the context of an otherwise balanced diet. The presence of calcium deficiency in people who consume large quantities of fizzy drinks does not automatically mean that soda is the cause of deficiency. Rather, it is the poor dietary habits that result in those deficiencies. Therefore, the drink is not the cause. Poor nutrition is the cause. Anybody who can drink 2 litres of cola in a day probably doesnt have much room left for a glass of milk or some yoghurt. Its the cola to blame? No.

    Yet among us there exist people who use baseless unsubstantiated theories to back up their otherwise nonsensical assertions…. then there are the sheep in the crowd that will bleat in support of whatever they are told, never insisting on the evidence to prove the claim.

    And for the record….coke will get gum out if you hair…as long as its cold. The cold kills the gumminess and makes it easy to remove.

  11. Tala

    Good information! Most of us know the ill effects that soda has on the body but are too addicted to give it up. EX ministries can you please do an article on the danger if what causes the addiction, which is SUGAR! High fructose corn syrup to be exact. Which is illegal in some countries but yet it’s in just about everthing in the S.A.D(standard american diet). Thanks!

  12. Jesus Is Coming

    Wow! I am definitiely sharing this article! So many people need to know this about coke. I think we shouldn’t drink any of the sodas/pop!! I know one thing I will buy me some coke to clean my house!
