This little tidbit was sent to me by my dear friend Betsy, living in the stunningly beautiful city of Venice, Italy, for the past 18 years. The information was too important to not pass on, given we are all experiencing a heat wave across this country. Let us toast one another with a glass of water, and remember to treat our precious body as a temple...
WATER vs. COKE
75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated. (Likely applies to half the world population.)
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 3%.
One glass of water shut down midnight hunger pangs for almost 100% of the dieters studied in a University of Washington study.
Lack of water is the No. 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 only 5 glasses of water daily decreases the risk of colon cancer by 45%, and slashes the risk of breast cancer by 79%, and, one is 50% less likely to develop bladder cancer.
Are you drinking the amount of water you should drink every day? Experts say we need one ounce of water for every two pounds of body weight daily.
In many states the highway patrol carries two gallons of Coke in the trunk to remove blood from the highway after a car accident.
You can put a T-bone steak in a bowl of Coke and it will be gone in two days.
To clean a toilet: Pour a can of Coca-Cola into the toilet bowl and let the "real thing" sit for one hour, then flush clean. The type of citric acid in Coke removes stains from vitreous china.
To remove rust spots from chrome car bumpers: Rub the bumper with a rumpled-up piece of Reynolds Wrap aluminum foil dipped in Coca-Cola.
To clean corrosion from car battery terminals: Pour a can of Coca-Cola over the terminals to bubble away the corrosion.
To loosen a rusted bolt: Apply a cloth soaked in Coca-Cola to the rusted bolt for several minutes.
To bake a moist ham: Empty a can of Coca-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 Coke for a sumptuous brown gravy.
To remove grease from clothes: Empty a can of Coke into the load of greasy clothes, add detergent, and run through a regular cycle. The Coca-Cola will help loosen grease stains. It will also clean road haze from your windshield.
And, more fun facts about Coca-Cola...
The active ingredient in Coke 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 Coca-Cola syrup (the concentrate) the commercial trucks must use "Hazardous Material" placards reserved for highly corrosive materials.
The distributors of Coke have been using it to clean engines of the trucks for about 20 years!
Now the question is, would you like a nice cold glass of water... or Coke?

Interview with Dr. Aruna Bakhru, M.D., F.A.C.P...
Growing up in New Delhi, India, Dr. Aruna Bakhru experienced what we call "alternative medicine," as a common part of community life. Whether it be yogic therapy, meditation, Ayurvedic Medicine, or homeopathy--it was all immediately available to everyone. But what caught the young Aruna's imagination was the pure scientific method of Western medicine. Achieving her M.D. after a residency in Maryland, Dr. Bakhru soon found herself re-discovering alternative medicine in a very personal way that shifted her clinical practice exclusively to energy medicine. This is her story... >>> MORE

F.Y.I. - Interesting Health News Tidbits
Telepathy is true...
Some scientists now believe that mental telepathy--what people usually refer to as "reading minds," is not only possible, but is the norm. And, a possible explanation for the existence of autism is an inability to use this skill. Monkey experiments a decade ago revealed that a curious cluster of brain cells responded in one monkey when another monkey performed an action (such as peeling a banana). The amazing thing scientists found was that when the monkey observing the action performed the same action himself, the same neurons fired. And thus, "mirror neurons" were named. "Mirror neurons suggest that we pretend to be in another person's mental shoes," says Marco Iacoboni, a neuroscientist at the University of California, Los Angeles School of Medicine. "In fact, with mirror neurons we do not have to pretend, we practically are in another person's mind."
The idea is that the mirror neuron systems of autistic individuals are somehow impaired or deficient, and that the resulting "mind-blindness" prevents them from simulating the experiences of others. For autistic individuals, experience is more observed than lived, and the emotional undercurrents that govern so much of our human behavior are inaccessible. They guess the mental states of others through explicit theorizing, but the end result is a list--mechanical and impersonal--of actions, gestures and expressions void of motive, intent, or emotion. Several labs are now testing the hypothesis that autistic individuals have a mirror neuron deficit and cannot simulate the mental states of others. >>>> MORE
The great calcium hoax...
Since we were kids we heard, "Ya gotta git yer calcium." TV ads, magazines, and even parents, kept up the mantra. The problem with this commandment is that it's a half-truth. The other half of the truth is that without magnesium, calcium cannot be used by the body. That is a fact. So what does the body do with all that calcium we're so dutifully consuming? It deposits it in joints, hardens our arteries, ends up in tumors and all those weird bumps we see as we get older--it gums up our livers, makes kidney stones, and deforms our bowels. The point of this half of the half-truth is that, yes, calcium is important at any age, but magnesium is more important. In fact, most nutritionists agree that taking twice as much magnesium than calcium is the only healthy way to go. Magnesium creates the following well-documented effects:
So, yes, take your calcium, but take MORE magnesium! >>>> MORE

The French paradox...
In honor of July 14th, Bastille Day, or Fête Nationale
, as it is known in France, let's take a look at their health. The mere mention of France brings to mind rich pastries, buttery sauces, and creamy fat-filled dishes. Yet, even with a diet like that, somehow the French manage to maintain better heart health than we do stateside. How is this possible when they are taking in nearly three times the amount of saturated fat? One word: wine
It's become fairly well-known that wine is good for you--in moderation, but did you know that just one of the healthy factors in wine, called OPC (oligomeric proanthocyanidin) when tested against vitamins C and E, proved to be the most potent free-radical scavenger by far. It inhibited 78-81 percent of two particularly damaging types of free radicals, TWICE the power of Vitamin E, and four times the effect of Vitamin C. Another ingredient in wine is a class of phytonutrients called polyphenols. They bolster heart health by promoting regular blood flow and supporting normal cholesterol levels. And then, there is reservatrol
, probably responsible for protecting wine drinkers in Paris from the infamous cholera plague of the 1830's. It's anti-bacterial properties have been found to be effective against three common strains of bacteria that cause diarrhea and dysentery. So... drink up!
