I've Switched!


75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated.

In 37% of Americans, the thirst mechanism is so weak that it is mistaken for hunger.

Even MILD dehydration will slow down one's metabolism as 3%.

One glass of water will shut down midnight hunger pangs for almost 100% of the dieters studied in a University of Washington study.

Lack of water, the #1 trigger of daytime fatigue.

Preliminary research indicates that 8-10 glasses of water a day could significantly ease back and joint pain for up to 80% of sufferers.

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.

Drinking 5 glasses of water daily decreases the risk of colon cancer by 45%,

It can slash the risk of breast cancer by 79%., and one is 50% less likely to develop bladder cancer.


In many states the highway patrol carries two gallons of cola in the trunk to remove blood from the highway after a car accident.

You can put a T-bone steak in a bowl of cola and it will be gone in two days.

To clean a toilet: Pour a can of cola into the toilet bowl and let it sit for one hour, then flush clean. The citric acid in cola removes stains from vitreous china.

To remove rust spots from chrome car bumpers: Rub the bumper with a rumpled-up piece of aluminum foil dipped in cola.

To clean corrosion from car battery terminals: Pour a can of cola over the terminals to bubble away the corrosion.

To loosen a rusted bolt: Apply a cloth soaked in cola to the rusted bolt for several minutes.

To bake a moist ham: empty a can of cola into the baking pan, wrap the ham in aluminum foil, and bake. Thirty minutes before ham is finished, remove the foil, allowing the drippings to mix with the cola for a sumptuous brown gravy.

To remove grease from clothes: Empty a can of cola into the load of greasy clothes, add detergent, and run through a regular cycle.

Cola will help loosen grease stains. It will also clean road haze from your windshield.

The active ingredient in cola is phosphoric acid. It will dissolve a nail in about four days.

Phosphoric acid also leaches calcium from bones and is a major contributor to the rising increase of osteoporosis.

To carry cola syrup (the concentrate) the commercial trucks must use a hazardous Material place cards reserved for highly corrosive materials.

The distributors of cola have been using it to clean engines of the trucks for about 20 years!

Now the question is: would you like a glass of water?

Hints to inspire you:
Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully.
Memorize your favorite poem.
Don't believe all you hear, spend all you have or sleep all you want.
Be engaged at least six months before you get married.
Believe in love at first sight.
Never laugh at anyone's dreams.
Love deeply and passionately. You might get hurt but it's the only way to live life completely.

A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events and outcomes. It is a catalyst and it sparks extraordinary results. --Wade Boggs

The whole water thing works. I drink lots of water, almost 8 glasses a least. I don't get drowzy like I used to. I think it's all of the trips to the room down the hall that's doing it to be quite honest. hehe

That's okay. I also try not to have anything to eat after 7:30 in the evenings and only drink a glass of water if I feel like I'm getting hungry. It helps a lot overall.
