    Hey Fambly.

    I was talking to my neighbor today and he told me he used to work for the airlines showing them how to ship hazardous materials. Then he told me the most dangerous material to ship by plane is Coca Cola..

    They use a plastic coating inside the canss because the phosphorous acid in Coke will eat aluminum and that's what airplanes are made of. The change in air pressure can cause the cans to explode so they have to be very careful how they seal the cans on a plane.

    I wondered if it does that to aluminum imagine what it does to the stomach. He said yes Coke will damage your kidneys.

    I googled around to se if I could find some more information. What I found is startling though not surprising.

    According to this article a lot of the conditions doctors tell us are a normal part of aging can actually be traced to years of drinking Coke. This article gives a detailed explanation of the effect each ingrediant in Coke has on the body and also list some other uses for Coke like cleaning your toilet or removing rust from your car bumpers.

    i KNOW you're not surprised

    this is amerikkka and there's money to make and products to sell

    who cares if it eats away at your stomach, somebodies making PROFIT

    and that's all that life it about right? profitting

    so if some people die along the way and they make money

    hey that's why the call it the "slow death feature" few don't understand

    until they or their family is dying unexpectedly

    another term is how you said it

    THE KILL THING

    eat live and die at your own risk, hey we gonna make money right

    off of what you eat, how you live and when you die

    ain't that the great "amerikkkan" way?

    I don't drink soda anymore.... for the most part. Me and Koolaid parted ways years ago, though there are the occasional conjugal visits... BUT.... if there is damage done to a body from years of drinking Coke and Kooliaid, then stick the fork in me. I used to drink coke with breakfast!

    dang

    you were hardcore lol

    i stop drinking soda as i teen, i played sports (football, basketball, baseball), i would drink soda and still need water, so i said to myself why am i drinking soda if i still need to quench my thirst, that's how i stopped. KOOL-AID at one time was a household favorite
    because it was cheap, kool-aid hasn't seen these veins in a long time

    I grew up on water, orange and guava juice.. Coke was the pricy stuff you might be lucky to get a glass of at a party... As an adult, at certain times I'll really crave the sugar, I guess, as a coke goes down very smooth when the mood hits. I vaguely recall kool-aid type stuff from way back when.. but not to drink, just to stick soggy fingers into and make your hands and mouth red :lol:

    I think some of the ingredients of Coca Cola have relation to the cocoa plant as in Cocaine.
