I drink usually 5 or 6 cans of pepsi everyday. I have been told that the carbonation eats the inside of my stomach. Is this true? Also, is caffeinne bad for you?

It's not good for your health, and we all know that. I don't drink pop (soda) anymore, just because of that.

That's alot of soda to consume a day. Soda may taste great, however it's not good for you. Caffiene slowly shuts down the adrenal glands. This is why so many depend on coffee/caffiene in the morning, because it is taking the place of the adrenal glands. The adrenal glands produce hormones and other chemicals which help you to get going in the morning.

Drinking water is very important.

Hmmm… Water or Coke? Some interesting info.!

Water or Coke?

Water
1. 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated.(Likely applies to half world population)
2. In 37% of Americans, the thirst mechanism is so weak that it is often mistaken for hunger.
3. Even MILD dehydration will slow down one's metabolism as much as 3%.
4. One glass of water will shut down midnight hunger pains for almost 100% of the dieters studied in a U-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% lesslikely to develop bladder cancer.

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

COKE
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 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: Applying 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 the 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 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.

For Your Info
1. The active ingredient in Coke is phosphoric acid. Its pH is 2.8. It will dissolve a nail in about 4 days. Phosphoric
acid also leaches calcium from bones and is a major contributor to the rising increase in osteoporosis.
2. To carry Coca-Cola syrup (the concentrate)the commercial truck must use the Hazardous material place cards reserved for Highly corrosive materials.
3. 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 coke? As far as does coke eat throught the lining of your stomach, I'll let you be the judge of that.

so if say I drink a pepsi once in a while, like once a week will it hurt me much? What about cool aid, I have started drinking about 10 glasses of cool aid each day to help with the pop drinking habit, cool aid has a ton of sugar in it, 1 cup per half gallon, how is it on your health?

Rudy,

It was funny at first, now it isn't! Please stop refering to dying or death. Thank you. Any time you have any positive things to say go ahead!

1st of all Cougart, Ignore Rudy's comments!
Anything in moderation isn't bad. Drinking 1-3 soda's (12oz) a week isn't going to kill you. Drinking the amount you said previously of 5-6 cans a day isn't heathly. There is approximately 8-12 teaspoons of sugar in a can of soda (some say more). It appears your still getting alot of sugar in the Cool Aid since you're drinking 10 glasses a day. Try substituting with a natural sweetener: stevia, swevia, and or use a synthetic sweetener: nutri-sweet or equal. That way you can lower the intake of sugar levels that are unhealthy. When you have these high doses of sugar like this it affects the body in such a way to put you more at risk for developing diabetes and high triglyceride levels.

I didn't know that, thanks Doc! I knew about the phosphoric acid though, that's why it's in naval jelly, to remove rust. No rust in my stomach lining.<img src=icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle>

take a look at the ingredients in nutri-sweet and equal. They are major cancer causing agents, and also leave a diet coke out in hot weather, easy way to make arsenic :). One of the ingredients is acually used in rat poison too. ever thing or hear of that. just food for thought. Ill stick with the real sugar. As for how much sugar comes in soda, a 12 oz Mt dew has 19 teaspoons of sugar, and 93 mg of caffeine which is the equivalent to one or two adult doeses of no-dose. :) I used to drink about 200-260 oz of Mt dew a day. Then I went into the hospital for some nurological testing were they shut me off cold turkey. that was hell because the nuro floor was full so they put me on a cardiac floor were caffine is not found at all, not even choc. milk. But Im better now, I only drink about one 20 oz of dew a day, and the rest water. as soda goes some is good, everything is good in moderation :).

.

This is true, but they have to be taken in very very high quantities and over a long period of time. If you will look back to the original post you will see I gave 2 other suggestions than nutri-sweet or equal. Called stevia and or swevia. They are a natural sweetener that have no side effects of cancer...

I never have heard of that before.

Not sure if the actual numbers are that high

I used to drink about 200-260 oz of Mt dew a day.
Isn't there 128 oz in 1 gallon. So you're saying you drank almost 2 gallons of mountain dew a day. You're lucky to be alive, no joke!

But Im better now, I only drink about one 20 oz of dew a day, and the rest water. as soda goes some is good, everything is good in moderation :)
Glad to hear it!

Unfortunately heroin isn't used just once in a while. One shot and you're hooked period. Would advise against any use...

For those interested.

There are 4g of suger in a teaspoon.

So to calculate how many teaspoons in a can of soda. Take the total grams of sugar (carbohydrates) in the 12oz. can and divide by 4 and that will give the amount of teaspoons per can of soda!
