Before you open another can of coke, you should read this.

Coca-Cola is one of the most popular soft drinks today. The company started out in the 1880s, and, in average, sold only 9 drinks per day. However, things have changed since then. Not only in Coca-Cola the most populat drink, but it is also the second most expensive name (Malboro being the first).

However, what people don’t know is how corrosive Coca-Cola really is. Here are some of the effects Coca-Cola has:

  1. The corrosive ingredient in Coca-Cola is phosphoric acid. It is so powerful that, if you submerge a nail in a can of Coca-Cola, it will be gone in about four days.
  2. Coke has the same effect on meat. A T-Bone steak can be consumed by Coca-Cola in just two days.
  3. Coca-Cola can clean off blood stains. In fact, the highway patrol in some parts of the US carry 2 gallons of Coca-Cola to clean blood from the road after a car accident.
  4. Same goes for toilets. Just pour a can of Coca-Cola in the toilet and let itr sit for an hour, then flush. (It it the citric acid that removes stains).
  5. Coca-Cola also helps removing grease stains from clothing. Simply add a can of coke along with the detergent.
  6. This corrosive drink can also be used to remove rust from chrome surfaces. To do this, you can dip a piece of crumpled tin foil in Coca-Cola and rub it on a rusty spot.
  7. To loosen a rusted bolt, a cloth soaked in Coca-Cola can be aplied.
  8. Trucks that transport the Coca-Cola syrup must use hazardous material place cards for highly corrosive material.
  9. For over 20 years, Coca-Cola distributors have been using this product to clean the truck engines.
  10. Coca-Cola was the first soft drink to be drank in outer space. For this, a special can had to be designed.

Now, after reading this, do you want to drink a corrosive, nail consumer, grease remover, hazardous material, toilet cleaning soft drink?

    Most of this facts are not true. There was a mythbusters episode just to test these claims.

    I agree with Goitia Productions. This is a well-written piece on the health risks of cola drinks.

    For those who have some reservations on the veracity of the facts presented here, feel free to read the article I’ve written on similar subject ” Don’t Panic: Crucial Health Alert Everyone Should Be Aware By Now.”

    Good post!

    How is fact number ten supposed to dissuade drinkers?

    And it’s untrue that the soda will dissolve a nail in four days. It won’t affect it at all.

    These “facts” aren’t even facts. You should come up with better sources than petty myths.

    Ive tested it on meat before, im actually still in the process of it. Its been about a week and its starting to tear it apart, even tho urs is a little shorter time, still its gross. Ive also tested it on salmon and chicken, the salmon is much thinner now than it was day one and the chicken looks gross. These are good points. kinda makes me wanna go throw up….even tho I dont even like coke.
