"It's The Real Thing" - August 1, 2015

Saturday, August 01, 2015

This graphic was just too priceless not to put into blog form:

This is how your body responds to *just* one can of soda. It is sobering. And if this does not cut down your consumption of "The Real Thing", nothing will.

Food for thought.

    Tested this hypothesis today, on my car that was literally covered in bird dung. The Coke cut through it like butter!! I am still in shock how easy it did that!!

    I have heard that mechanics use soda to clean battery acid off of car batteries. Now THAT is downright scary!!

    Haven't touched any in many years, and wouldn't consider it!

    DH drinks diet Coke. A boss of his, years ago, took a can of his diet Coke and poured it on the cement window sill. At the end of the day, she showed him how it had eaten a groove into the cement!

    Didn't stop him, of course.

    But his story stopped ME from drinking even the occasional diet Coke!

    I'm not sure what's scarier, the facts of the article or the 389 comments on it.

    Have you read them? They are overwhelmingly on the side of drinking the coke with nasty epithets hurled at those who think otherwise. Either there are a lot of trolls being paid to comment or our goal of society moving to a healthier lifestyle is hopeless.

    I gave up soda decades ago when I decided that I would never drink another calorie (after morning coffee & OJ). Without that decision I would have had a lot more weight to lose.

    Truth is, I love me a good cold Coca-Cola. But even before this went viral I had done some calculations on calories for myself. The calorie count for one can of Coke was just too much and I was drinking more than one a day.
    Thanks for sharing this - everyone should see this.

    Definitely not "The Real Thing" for our body. Thank goodness I gave up the soda habit 4 yrs. ago. Sugar in general. Feel better!
