So you drink Coca-Cola huh..

Yup, most of us love the taste of Coca-Cola, the stuff that gives you fizz, quenches your thirst and makes you burp. But how many of you know what other stuff Coca-Cola can do.

Here's just a few about the 'real thing'

1. Cola contains citric acid and are therefore very corrosive. In many of the US states the highway patrol carries two gallons of Coke in the truck to remove blood from the highway after a car accident.

2. You can put a t-bone steak in a bowl of Coke and it will be gone in two days.

3. To clean corrosion from car battery terminals: Pour a can of Coca-Cola over the terminals to bubble away the corrosion.

4. The active ingredient in Coke is phosphoric acid. It's pH is 2.8. It will dissolve a nail in about 4 days.

5. To carry Coca-Cola syrup (the concentrate) the commercial truck must use the Hazardous material place cards reserved for Highly Corrosive materials.

7. The distributors of Coke have been using it to clean the engines of their trucks for about 20 years!

Basically, we're exposing out mouths to a substance so acidic and corrosive it can dissolve blood, steaks, china stains, rust, grease, and even iron. Wanna cola ??
