20 Practical Uses for Coca Cola – Proof That Coke Does Not Belong In The Human Body

Update: Coke responds and cleverly tries to bring other safe products into the spotlight in order to suggest their product is just as safe. http://www.coca-cola.co.uk/faq/rumours/can-coca-cola-be-used-as-a-household-cleaner.html

Coke is the most valuable brand in history, and “Coca-Cola” is the world’s second-most recognized word after “hello.” However, the beverage itself is an absolute poison to the human metabolism. Coke is very acidic, it’s only one point higher on the pH scale than battery acid. Consequently it can clean surfaces equivalent to and often better than many toxic household cleaners.

It’s cheaper and easier to buy Coke in some third world countries than it is to access clean water. Coke uses “public relations propaganda” to convince consumers and entire nations that it is an “environmental company” when really it is linked to pollution, water shortages, and disease.

People who consume soft drinks such as Coke have a 48% increase in heart attack and stroke risk, compared to people who did not drink the sodas at all or did not drink them every day. A study published in the journal Respirology reveals that soft drink consumption is also associated with lung and breathing disorders including asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

The carbonation in Coke causes calcium loss in the bones through a 3-stage process:

  1. The carbonation irritates the stomach.
  2. The stomach “cures” the irritation the only way it knows how. It adds the only antacid at its disposal: calcium. It gets this from the blood.
  3. The blood, now low on calcium, replenishes its supply from the bones. If it did not do this, muscular and brain function would be severely impaired.

But, the story doesn’t end there. Another problem with most Coke is it also contain phosphoric acid (not the same as the carbonation, which is carbon dioxide mixed with the water). Phosphoric acid also causes a draw-down on the body’s store of calcium.

So Coke softens your bones (actually, makes them weak and brittle) in 3 ways:

  1. Carbonation reduces the calcium in the bones.
  2. Phosphoric acid reduces the calcium in the bones.
  3. The beverage replaces a calcium-containing alternative, such as milk or water. Milk and water are not excellent calcium sources, but they are sources.

Esophageal cancer was very rare two generations ago — now, it’s common. The basic mechanism works as follows:

  1. Mechanical damage to cells is a huge risk factor for cancer. It’s why asbestos particles, for example, cause lung cancer.
  2. All soft drinks cause acid reflux (stomach acid rising up past the esophageal valve). This is more pronounced when the body is horizontal (as in sleeping), but the sheer volume of Coke and soft drinks consumed in the USA means the acid reflux is well past the danger point. Any time you ingest a gassy drink, you are going to get belching–and acid into the esophagus. How much is too much? The research doesn’t say where the limit is–it only shows that most of us are far, far, far past it.
  3. tomach acid dissolves tissue — that’s its purpose. The stomach lining does not extend into the esophagus, so the lower esophagus gets damaged by acid far more frequently in soft drink users than in non soft drink users. This results in a radical increase in cell mutations, along with a far higher level of free radicals.

20 Practical Uses For Coke

Coke acts as an acidic cleaner. The amount of acid in soda is enough to wear away at the enamel of your teeth, making them more susceptible to decay. In tests done on the acidity levels of soda, certain ones were found to have PH levels as low as 2.5. To put that into perspective, consider that battery acid has a pH of 1 and pure water has a pH of 7.

To prove Coke does not belong in the human body, here are 20 practical ways you can use Coke as a domestic cleaner:

  1. Removes grease stains from clothing and fabric
  2. Removes rust; methods include using fabric dipped in Coke, a sponge or even aluminum foil. Also loosens rusty bolts
  3. Removes blood stains from clothing and fabric.
  4. Cleans oil stains from a garage floor; let the stain soak, hose off.
  5. Kills slugs and snails; the acids kills them.
  6. Cleans burnt pans; let the pan soak in the Coke, then rinse.
  7. Descales a kettle (same method as with burnt pans)
  8. Cleans car battery terminals by pouring a small amount of Coke over each one.
  9. Cleans your engine; Coke distributors have been using this technique for decades.
  10. Makes pennies shine; soaking old pennies in Coke will remove the tarnish.
  11. Cleans tile grout; pour onto kitchen floor, leave for a few minutes, wipe up.
  12. Dissolves a tooth; Use a sealed container…takes a while but it does work.
  13. Removes gum from hair; dip into a small bowl of Coke, leave a few minutes. Gum will wipe off.
  14. Removes stains from vitreous china.
  15. Got a dirty pool? Adding two 2-liter bottles of Coke clears up rust.
  16. You can remove (or fade) dye from hair by pouring diet Coke over it.
  17. Remove marker stains from carpet. Applying Coke, scrubbing and then clean with soapy water will remove marker stains.
  18. Cleans a toilet; pour around bowl, leave for a while, flush clean.
  19. Coke and aluminum foil will bring Chrome to a high shine.
  20. Strips paint off metal furniture. Soak a towel in Coke and lay it on the paint surface.

Now can you imagine what is does to your stomach lining? 

Who needs the ‘household and cleaning’ section at the hardware store when we have Coke.

Have you ever wondered what exactly Coca Cola is?

After 10 minutes: The sugar contained in a glass of Cola can cause a devastating “strike” on the body. The cause being the phosphoric acid which inhibits the action of sugar.

After 20 minutes: A leap in insulin levels in bloodstream occurs.

After 40 minutes: Ingestion of caffeine is finally completed. The eye’s pupils are expanding. Blood pressure rises because the liver disposes more sugar into the bloodstream. The adenosine receptors become blocked thereby preventing drowsiness.

After 45 minutes: The body raises production of the dopamine hormone, which stimulates the brain pleasure center. Similar to the reaction Heroin creates.

After 1 hour: Phosphoric acid binds calcium, magnesium and zinc in the gastrointestinal tract, which supercharges metabolism. The release of calcium through urine takes place.

After more than 1 hour: Diuretic effects of the drink enters in “the game”. The calcium, magnesium and zinc are removed out of the body, which are a part of our bones, as well as sodium. At this time we can become irritable or subdued. The whole quantity of water, contained in a coca cola, is removed through urination.

When having a cold bottle of Coke and enjoying its undeniable freshness are we aware of what chemical “cocktail” we are putting into our bodies? The active ingredient in Coca-Cola is orthophosphoric acid. Due to its high acidity, cisterns used for transporting the chemical have to be equipped with special reservoirs designed for highly corrosive materials.

Let’s have a look at “the anatomy” of one of the most advertised products of “Coca-Cola Co.” – Coca-Cola Light without caffeine. This drink contains Aqua Carbonated, E150D, E952, E951, E338, E330, Aromas, E211.

Aqua Carbonated – this is sparkling water. It stirs gastric secretion, increases the acidity of the gastric juice and provokes flatulency. Filtered tap water is what is primarily used.

E150D – this is food coloring obtained through the processing of sugar at specified temperatures, with or without addition of chemical reagents. In the case of coca-cola, ammonium sulfate is added.

E952 – Sodium Cyclamate is a sugar substitute. Cyclamate is a synthetic chemical, has a sweet taste, which is 200 times sweeter than sugar, and is used as an artificial sweetener. In 1969 it was banned by FDA, since it, as well as saccharin and aspartame, caused cancer in rats.

E950 – Acesulfame Potassium. 200 times sweeter than sugar, containing methyl-ether. It aggravates the operation of the cardiovascular system. Likewise, it contains asparaginic acid which can also cause an excitant effect on our nervous system and in time it can lead to addiction. Acesulfame is badly dissolved and is not recommended for use by children and pregnant women.

E951 – Aspartame. A sugar substitute for diabetics and is chemically unstable at elevated temperatures it breaks down into methanol and phenylalanine. Methanol is very dangerous as only 5-10ml can cause destruction of the optic nerve and irreversible blindness. In warm soft drinks, aspartame transforms into formaldehyde which is a very strong carcinogen. Symptoms of aspartame poisoning include: unconsciousness, headaches, fatigue, dizziness, nausea, palpitation, weight gain, irritability, anxiety, memory loss, blurry vision, fainting, joint pains, depression, infertility, hearing loss and more. Aspartame can also provoke the following diseases: brain tumors, MS (Multiple Sclerosis), epilepsy, Graves’ disease, chronic fatigue, Alzheimer’s, diabetes, mental deficiency and tuberculosis. Later, this substance was initially illegal due to its dangers but was again made legal in a suspicious manner.

E338 – Orthophosphoric Acid. This can cause irritation of the skin and eyes. It is used for production of phosphoric acid salts of ammonia, sodium, calcium, aluminum and also in organic synthesis for the production of charcoal and film tapes. It is also used in the production of refractory materials, ceramics, glass, fertilizers, synthetic detergents, medicine, metalworking, as well as in the textile and oil industries. It is known that orthophosphoric acid interferes with the absorption of calcium and iron into the body which can cause weakening of bones and osteoporosis. Other side effects are thirst and skin rashes.

E330 – Citric Acid. It is widely used in pharmaceutical and food industries. Salts of citric acid (citrates) are used in the food industry as acids, preservatives, stabilizers, and in the medical fields – for preserving blood.

Aromas – unknown aromatic additives

E211 – Sodium Benzoate. It is used in production of some food products for anti-bacterial and anti-fungal purposes. It is often found in jams, fruit juices and fruit yogurts. It’s not recommended for use by asthmatics and people who are sensitive to aspirin. A study conducted by Peter Piper at the Sheffield University in Britain, found that this compound causes significant damage to DNA. According to Peter, sodium benzoate which is an active component in preservatives, doesn’t destroy DNA, but deactivates it. This can lead to cirrhosis and degenerative diseases like Parkinson’s disease.

Coca-Cola is undeniably a very useful product. The key is to use it for purposes that do not include drinking! Here is a video about Coca-Cola!

CE provides a space for free thinkers to explore and discuss new, alternative information and ideas. The goal? Question everything, think differently, spread love and live a joy filled life.

  1. Garden
    Pouring on some pants and also in the compost with strengthen the growth of micro-organisms that will make your lawn and garden healthier.

  2. WiredWhale

    Here’s some free thought, and I know this might shock some of you: the fact that I, some guy probably thousands of miles from where you live like to drink coke HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH YOU. If that bothers you, then I hope you lose sleep tonight and make a dangerous error at work tomorrow. Oh that’s right. You’re not victims of the system, are you? You don’t work.

    • LOL, why did I think of the movies Zoolander and Dodge Ball after reading your comment WiredWhale?

      I have to agree, pissing and moaning over what Coca Cola does or doesn’t do is about as rational as pissing and moaning about GMO foods, both subjects are created by those who want to give people a bone to chew on while the real manipulation takes place.

      Point in hand, there is almost NO real science today, just pure commercialized science fiction for profit. That’s the real problem and the real reason people are sick and fragile today. Fragile minds make for fragile bodies.

      There is so little truth in today’s society. BELIEF is all a consumer have to work with. “I believe cannabis is good and gluten is bad.” LOL OR “I believe herpes is a virus even thought there is no proof or even reasonable evidence!” Funny what people choose to believe and remain loyal too, no matter what part of the world they live on. It’s all a lie, especially ANY study, science or medicine.


      • common sense
        • https://www.facebook.com/beimmunetodisease

          310 people who want to know why YOUR BELOVED COMMERCIAL SCIENCE FOR PROFIT can’t cure or prevent any disease in the human species but can cure and prevent disease in livestock.

          For those who read this, CS also known as BS likes to point out that being immune to disease is EXTREMELY unpopular. Only 310 people in the WHOLE world give two shits about their immune system and CS/BS likes it that way.

          CS wants every single CE reader to remain totally loyal to an industry that cannot cure or prevent any disease. The disease his corrupt commercial medicine could once cure and prevent are NOW NO LONGER preventable or curable.

          CS wants you to be distracted from the ABSOLUTE failure of today’s commercial healthcare (outside of trauma) so that you will keep pouring your hard earned money into an industry that has NO INTENTIONS of helping you be healthy.

          CS hates it when people ask about there immune system because CS believes you are not suppose to know you have one. CS is the epitome of corruption and cowardliness. On the lighter side, people like CS have no course of action against disease and suffering where people who are actually interested in their own immune system can be immune to ALL disease. That’s why they have an immune system and why it is called an immune system.

          You’re doing all the good CS. People need to reminded of how weak and fragile you and your beloved industry of commercialized health care is and I couldn’t do it without you. Cheers my fragile friend.

          • common sense

            Petty insults and lies won’t help your cause lol. Especially when I’ve said several times I know the medical industry can be deceitful. Your ignorance just amuses me. As does your failed Facebook campaign into deceiving the ignorant. Your not worth fighting. Just fun to wind up.

            Couldn’t find a page for lies, so here’s one for lying :

          • Hey BS, why don’t you quote the lies you accuse me of posting instead of just calling me liar. You can’t, because you know everything I say can be held as accurate. Even the point about you cowardly hiding behind a anonymous handle so you can not personally be linked to your pathetic and false accusations.

            So point out my supposed lies or accept the fact you are the creep here.


          • common sense

            I’m not convinced that you’re not having a different conversation lol. We went through all that. You evaded all questions, asked us for proof, but then said our proof was fake, and that you didn’t need any proof lol your a joke.

          • CS, are you really that shallow and weak? When I say the leading 1000 scientist could not prove a herpes virus even exist, that is in fact an undeniable fact. Sure they can all say there is a herpes virus and that is indeed the case right now but NOT one can prove a herpes virus exist.

            Therefore CS, my information is ROCK SOLID and indisputable. Your information and arguments are just gibberish. My information leads to cures, preventions and full immunity, you information just leads to confusion and corruption. Certainly I know you and I have been over this but every time I expose your foolishness and throw up my link I get some new likes for TRUTH and IMMUNITY. God bless your ignorance and corrupted mind.


            Almost every person reading this comment will test positive for “herpes” right at this moment and probably at least 70% of the people reading this have been diagnosed with “herpes” or BELIEVE they have “herpes” and by God I am the only person in the world giving them the truth. I stick with undeniable common sense something you know nothing of but again I am grateful for you giving me the opportunity to expose you and all the lies associated with your chosen beliefs and loyalties to fraudulent commercialized science and medicine.

            In case you missed it CS, I’m just using you to keep the truth alive in order to save our species from the likes of you!

          • Hey CS/BS, when I say there is no proof or evidence of a “herpes” “virus” causing sores diagnosed as “herpes” am I lying? :)

            Hmmmm? I have no reason to lie and I understand doctors are not really lying, they are just poorly trained and poorly educated. Every word out of a doctor’s mouth outside of trauma is misinformation so I don’t call them liars like you like to call me though you can’t point out a lie from me.

            Fact is, the reason your beloved industry fails 99.9% of the time is because none of it is true. Not all in the industry are stone cold liars but if they aren’t they are stone cold fools who bought into an industry that only thrives and profits off of failure, to succeed would destroy the industry as a whole.

            So in the process of pointing out that all studies are done for commercial gain instead of for truth we shed much light on many issues. Everything popular in regards to health and healing outside of trauma is pretty much false and of course you know it but here you are totally against the truth at the same time. Funny isn’t it? You still want people to consider the TRUTH as the lie so pick statement from me and prove it is a lie if you insist on calling me a liar. Also, why not back up your point of view by dropping the anonymous fictional handle you comment under. Buck up and be a man or a woman.

  3. my emails

    This is 99% hype. Vinegar is also a strong acid as is the HCL in your Stomach!

    If you have to explain the difference between Carbonation and acid, then your audience is either unconcerned with learning the facts involved or just plain Stupid.

    • Audience, I will field this one for you. Who’s calling who stupid? The audience here is duped almost 100% of the time when it comes to research and studies. Those who provide research and studies are flat out incapable of providing or creating cures and or preventions therefore any and all studies and research are to be taking with a grain of salt.

      The audience here is no more gullible than the leading researchers from Harvard and Berkley.

      What the audience needs here is HONESTY. And then and only then can they start to become wise and informed, not through Google but through logic. Sure the article here is extremely flawed but so is every word of any “cancer” research or study.

      The entire industry of healthcare relies SOLELY on hypothesis.
      noun \hī-ˈpä-thə-səs\
      : an idea or theory that is not proven but that leads to further study or discussion

      Every word printed in regards to healthcare is designed to be discussed, NOT TO PRODUCE CURES OR PREVENTIONS.

      Because the commercial industry of healthcare, constantly repeats their HYPOTHESIS, consumer begin to view them as facts, they execute it to be that way. The industry of medicine and healthcare have no facts, they do not want facts, they want people to accept HYPOTHESIS as fact all on their own. In that sense the audience is a bit gullible but the healthcare has the resources to invest whatever it takes to manipulate the consumer and they succeed.

      Every word from today’s healthcare is designed to be discussed not to prevent or cure disease. Researchers are trained to fail, trained to NEVER ever move past HYPOTHESIS.


      my emails, when you can cure or prevent disease, or be immune to disease yourself, you can stand up and judge. Until then, you might want to tone it down. This article as all articles, studies and other hypothesis are for discussion ONLY. The “theory” that “cancer” is a mutated cell is strictly for discussion, it’s not a fact at all.

      • Steph

        They have a lot of facts and a lot of theory. Good way to look at it is if it’s manufactured and sold it’s usually by way of fact. Omeprazole; for instance, is a proton pump inhibitor, this is a fact. To put it simply. What you are trying to communicate is that cancer research is at a very early stage. Cancer research is mostly theoretical. Not that all medical treatments are theory. Did I interpret you correctly?

        • common sense

          Apart from the bit where he said what we call cancer isn’t cancer, and is infact a fungus which can be treated by fungicide lol

        • More or less correct Steph. It is a fact the industry uses chemo and radiation but it can only be speculation as to whether any of it helps or saves anyone. There is no way to prove the person wouldn’t have fared much better had the doctor told them they were fine and had nothing to worry about.

          It is a fact that being diagnosed with the fictional disease known as “cancer” is DEADLY. The industry knows they could take a perfectly healthy person and lie to them and diagnose them with “cancer” and that healthy person’s life would spiral out of control.

          When it comes to what “cancer” is, there is no fact other than the fact that the industry purposely misleads people to BELIEVE that what they say “Cancer is believed to be” is actual factual.

          For example, some misguided people believe “cancer” is factually a mutated cell even thought the industry maintains it is “believed to be a mutated cell”. Those who interpret that tidbit as a “fact” do so at their own peril.

          There is no research period dedicated to proving what “cancer” really is. It is a FACT that all skin crusties are fungus. That’s a very simple fact proved by using over the counter fungicides on skin crusties. So we know skin cancer is indeed fungus but the industry will not report this truth. Furthermore we also know that skin crusties are a nuisance not a real health threat but when a person with skin crusties is diagnosed with “cancer” the diagnoses kills them not the skin crusty.

          Now there are other fact, for one, those who survive modern “cancer” treatments were NOT IN ANY LIFE THREATENING situation at all. They treat perfectly healthy people for “cancer” to conjure up “SUCCESS” stories so they can sell more ineffective treatments at top dollar.

          So to sum it up, the “facts” in today’s health care have no way of improving quality of life for anyone.

          The FACTS you and I are aware of are simply business tools and nothing more, if they were worthy facts we would not call “cancer” cancer and it would no longer be an issue.


          • common sense

            You see what you’ve got yourself into now? Lol. click the link at your peril

          • :) Don’t you have something more worthy of your BELIEF system CS, like dumping Ice Water over your head to fatten up the medical industry cash cow? If every person in the world donated $100 to ALS research it wouldn’t give them one penny’s worth of incentive to create a cure or prevention.

            Common sense (not the anonymous person promoting medical and science failure on CE) STRONGLY suggest there isn’t a snowballs chance in hell of any disease every being prevented or cured by medicine or commercial science. Statistically it isn’t going to happen so if anyone wants to be healthy and disease free, obviously they are going to have to look inside instead of outside cause everyone has an internal immune system that can kick the medical industry’s butt into bankruptcy!

            How bout that facebook information page again for those people who are honest enough to recognize the never ending failure of commercialized science and medicine.

            https://www.facebook.com/beimmunetodisease 282 likes and growing. I know it isn’t a lot but at least now there are 282 people who want to know about their immune system and why commercial science has abandoned it and them.

          • common sense

            Over 6.5 million people like a grumpy cat, hell my old uni group had more likes in a month than your page. People like any old crap lol you have a long way to go to make f all change with your ignorance and lies haha

            And congratulations, you’ve come up with a way not to get involved with a bit of fun, whilst giving a small amount of money to charity. Aren’t you a delightful person


          • Ignorance and lies you say? You can’t point out a single lie, nor will you try because to attack any claim will draw attention to it and in the end your rebuttal will ALWAYS prove to be second hand hearsay and every argument you use will be exposed as nothing better than an commercial hypothesis.

            You get nasty cause its all you got. If your beloved industry of health care could do anything substantial outside of trauma medicine you would be more civil because you could give examples.

            Nope, your beloved industry of commercial science and commercial medicine is letting our species plummet into extinction all because YOUR beloved commercial grade fraudulent science and medicine refuse to cure or prevent any disease and they bring back the diseases that were once curable and preventable.

            You can’t point out ONE lie and you cannot substantiate anything in regards to medicine and science today because it is ALL hypothesis and nothing more and ONE FACT STANDS OUT, hypothesis WILL NOT CURE DISEASE OR PREVENT DISEASE. So you promote failure and I will continue to promote immunity, I will remain immune to disease and you will not. I think everything is fair don’t you?

            For anyone following CS and I, he wants you to believe you cannot be immune to disease. I think he believes it is a lie when I say we have immune systems designed to provided immunity to disease which is indeed on par with today’s corrupt commercial science and medicine but the truth is, you can heal from a scratch and you can cure any disease if you gain the knowledge and restore your own natural instinct to heal through a very powerful immune system/systems. CS would never trash talk my comments under his real name or Facebook login because he knows he is the liar here.


          • common sense

            Yer, well we’ve been through all this lol, I point out your lies you reply with they’re not lies because you say so, I ask for proof, you say you don’t need to give it and I can’t offer any against it, o give proof against and you say it’s fake, I ask for you to explain your theory, you refuse, I explain my theory’s, you ignore me and turn to personal attacks. Rinse and repeat haha, it’s all good fun. At least you don’t fool many people.

            Lol even this page has more likes. Quite appropriate: https://m.facebook.com/profile.php?id=313082258730284&refsrc=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.co.uk%2F&refid=9&_rdr#_=_

          • Yeah, yeah we have been through all this before I know. You don’t have an immune system, you don’t want an immune system, you can’t be bothered by an immune system. On the the Facebook pages you posted there was 65,000 likes, 65,000 people will DIE OF THE FRAUDULENT THOUGH DEADLY DISEASE KNOWN AS “CANCER” unless they get hit by a truck or a heart attack gets them first.

            There is ONLY 287 likes at the moment on my page and it’s slow going because most people are like you, mindless greedy selfish consumers who rather die a rotten death than face the truth about their own ignorance where as the 287 people on my page get to be immune to all disease. They don’t have to fear all the boogeymen you fear DS.

            DS, you are as impotent in body as you are in mind. Rejoice however cause you are surrounded by like minded people who will fallow the same belief system as you to their premature death of fraudulent commercialized disease. Like you, they LOVE the lies and will always be sickly and diseased because they do not know.

            287 people who care about the human immune system, and people wonder why they don’t know they have an immune system? You all have the likes of DS to blame. I can’t refer to him or her as C.S because not a person here can copy and paste any common sense posted by this anonymous coward. People can attack me but not with one ounce of common sense. Just read D.S’s post here, nothing but nasty attacks totally void of intellect and common sense.


          • common sense

            So you keep saying matey, doesn’t change shit to lol. I get it, your scared of death, we all are, but there are those who live in denial, and those that make the most of life, you’re the former. I hope you live a long and full life, but lying to yourself and others won’t help.


          • https://www.facebook.com/beimmunetodisease

            B.S you underestimate the science and the proof of being immune. When a person is immune to disease they know it. A person with asthma or deadly allergies knows when their immune system cures them. You can tell all the people who have never been immune that it is impossible but you can’t tell those who are immune it is impossible.

            You choose to rely on failure and those who are immune to disease choose to rely on true science. You take your road and they will take their road. The two shall never cross.

  4. Will Royal Crown, Pepsi and other cola products do the same? What about the cola nut itself? What will it do?

  5. Caffeine in the body does not increase blood pressure.. It does the opposite effect. It allows MORE blood to flow. That’s why a lot of endurance athletes use it for their races and training.

    • Hmmm, how does it make “more blood to flow”? Well we sure can’t rely on commercial science to answer that. So what could make “more blood flow”. What could make “MORE” blood to flow? More water in the blood would make more blood volume so more blood could flow and naturally more water or volume causes what???? Higher blood pressure is what happens when blood volume goes up so if caffeine makes more blood flow it stands to reason blood pressure would go up, so you are corrected timpar3.

      Now, is raised blood pressure due to higher blood flow harmful, probably not. There certainly is no reason to turn to commercial science for those kinds of questions and answers. Their job is to create industry for profit not help people. The article here despite CE’s good intentions has no merit but neither to 98% of the comments either. Too many people relying on commercial science for hire for their source for knowledge, BIG MISTAKE.

      • common sense

        How about you stop bringing your childish insults of science and other people into this and just comment on the subject in question. Think we’ve established you’re fooling no one, if anything you’re turning them against your cause.

        • I’m pretty happy with the results CS. Things all work out in time. I’m creating a new found demand for real science. Just to keep the record straight I only bash hypothesized science. I bash it because people aren’t even aware that hypothesized science, otherwise known here as commercial science isn’t even real science, it’s just paid for marketing.

          People need to be aware that there is real science with real results and then there is commercial hypothesized science used strictly for business and marketing with no intent to improve the human situation outside of financial of course.

          Also, I’m not against people making a living off of hypothesis. I don’t begrudge them a livelihood. I’m simply against the misconception the industry promotes.

          I’m sure if today’s commercial science was worth it’s salt we wouldn’t be rubbing each other the wrong way. Maybe your beef shouldn’t be with me but with Harvard and Berkeley instead. Get them to step up and make a difference, or at least show some interest in seeing them make a difference. Why not raise the bar a little? Why hate me for pointing out that a mouse couldn’t get under the bar the way things are..

          TODAY’S SCIENCE in ONE word hy·poth·e·sis
          noun \hī-ˈpä-thə-səs\

          : an idea or theory that is not proven but that leads to further study or discussion

          CE is a great host but every article here is based SOLELY on hy·poth·e·sis and because of such, today’s science is only good for a good debate and stacking cash.


          I threw in my information page on immunity because a lot of the readers here are not nearly so loyal to hy·poth·e·sis. A lot of people might be tiring of the debate. I came on strong with timpar3 because his or her comments came on strong too and though timpar3 may be upset with my comment he or she got the point. What he or she does with it is up to him or her.

      HOWEVER- with caffeine on board one’s blood pressure swings are more volatile i.e. an alarm stimulus will send the systolic reading higher than it would if uncaffeinatedl.

    None of this proves or even gently suggests that coke “doesn’t belong in the human body.” It’s unhealthy food, but you’re blowing it ridiculously out of proportion – and flat-out lying about many ingredients such as aspartame. Please keep fearmongering and fact away from one another in the future.

    whatever 20s reason..still love Coke…

    • I hope in moderation Imiz. It makes my teeth feel fuzzy so I know its damaging my teeth, but it makes a good mixer with spirits. :)
