Monday Motivation: The Case Against Cola

Monday Motivation: The Case Against Cola

A 20 oz Cola has 17 tsp of sugar and is associated with an increased risk of developing diabetes and heart disease.
The caramel coloring is linked to cancer and vascular abnormalities. Drinking diet Cola can cause a 2-fold reduction in kidney function. If that is not enough maybe hearing some other uses for Cola will make you think twice before cracking open a can….

  1. Remove Rust

You can use Cola to take rust off wheel spokes or other outdoor equipment ladened with rust. The phosphoric acid in the cola is responsible for this process. You can also use to loosen rusted bolts.

  1. Bring an old battery to life…

If your car battery is dead you can use cola to clear oxidized terminals on the battery. It is acidic enough to bring the battery back to life

  1. You can use Cola to remove blood stains from clothing or gum from your hair or clothing.
  2. Clean your Toilet
  3. Remove baked-on food from cookware
  4. Fertilize azaleas or gardenias.

The acidic changes make the plants happy and the added sugar feeds the soil microbiome

  1. Kill rodents and pests.

Pests love cola, drink it and then die because of the effect of phosphoric acid on their stomachs. This includes mice, slugs and snails.

  1. Add to Mentos candy and make an explosive fountain.
  2. Dissolve your teeth

Add cola to a tooth, put it in a jar and let sit. The tooth will begin to dissolve after only a week.
Hope these were more reasons not to drink cola….
