My colleague Dan Hale at the University of Texas, San Antonio, tells me that down there they’ve got a “Texas-sized Big Gulp” — 60 ounces of Coca-Cola, a Snickers bar, and a bag of Doritos, all for $0.99. If you did that every day that’d be 112 pounds of fat per year.

What’s in Coke? Caffeine. What’s caffeine? A mild stimulant, right? It’s also a diuretic — it makes you pee.

What else is in Coke? Salt — 55mg of sodium per can. It’s like drinking a pizza.

So what happens if you take-on sodium and lose water? You get thirstier. Why is there so much sugar in Coke? To hide the salt.

When was the last time you went to a Chinese restaurant and had sweet-n-sour pork? That’s half soy sauce — you wouldn’t eat that. Except the sugar plays a trick on your tongue. You can’t even tell it’s there.

Everybody remember New Coke? 1985? More salt. More caffeine.

That’s the smoking gun. They know what they’re doing.

That’s The Coca-Cola Conspiracy.

Oh you definitely have a point AK, although I think caffeine and salt are tiny issues compared to the rest of the problem, sugar or HFCS. Sugar is crack to the body and causes a whole range of health problems including obesity. Greedy bastards.

I don't do sodas or sugar. protest.gif

Life is like a penny, you can spend it on what you like, but you can ONLY spend it once.

Water here is not fluoridated as the groundwater contains fluoride naturally. The waterworks remove fluoride from some groundwater areas. damned.gif

Quote:Fluoride is found naturally in the rapakivi granites that form the bedrock over large areas of southeast and southwest Finland and in the Åland archipelago. The rapakivi granites are characterised by high fluoride concentrations, which are much higher than in other bedrock types, and which are reflected in the chemistry of the groundwater in the areas where these granites are found. The fluoride concentrations in these areas can be 1.5- 2.5 mg F-/litre, and sometimes even 3.5-4.5 mg F-/litre.
Removal of fluoride

In small waterworks fluoride can be removed from potable water by reverse osmosis and in large water works it is done by using activated alumna. In some individual cases separation by precipitation with alumna can be considered a possible method.
