    I've seen this before and some of the claims like #1 (the vomiting part) aren't true and other parts are exaggerated but you get the idea you shouldn't drink coke very often if ever. It's not just coke this applies to but pretty much all kinds of soda.

    I have GERD and I have quit drinking carbonated drinks and it has made a world for difference. I wish I would have realized that before, except soft drinks are an everyday part of our society.

    Too much of such fizzy drinks are supposed to eat away your enamel, hence bad for dentition, esp, the children's.

    "In the world of green cleaning many applications for cola are publicized, including:

    Shining up a tarnished copper penny
    Cleaning stains in toilet bowl
    Removing rust, especially from chrome on the bumpers of motorcycles and cars
    Taking out grease from clothes

    For the science of cleaning, some of the benefits of cola that contributes to the ability of these natural green home cleaning strategies to work are:

    Low pH. Similarly, many cleaners are acidic. (The average pH of Coca-Cola, Pepsi, and other colas is 3.4.)
    Carbonation combined with the acid can dissolve the metal oxides and remove tarnish from copper, brass and other metal alloys.
    Citric acid is known to remove the stains
    Phosphoric acid is commonly used for rust removal.
    Carbonic acid dissolves limestone and may break down some of the mineral build-up."

    I know someone who uses coke in cooking food, marinate chicken, pork, beef, turkey. Quite delicious really!!

    Yeah I've seen that too, being so acidic it would probably help tenderize the meat pretty well. I've also seen it used in baked goods like cake or cookies.

    If modern day Coca-Cola has all these negative effects I wonder how bad the original ( 1885-1903) version that had cocaine in it was for you. Actually the first version had both cocaine and alcohol in it and was sold as a medicine that claimed to cure many diseases. The alcohol was taken out and extra sugar and caffeine added because Atlanta passed a prohibition law in 1886.

    Something a lot of people don't know about Coca-Cola is coca leaves are still used in making it today. Although they've been illegal in the country since 1922 Coca-Cola was granted a exemption by the DEA and imports about 100 metric tons of coca leaves into the U.S. each year. First shipped to a lab the leaves have all the active alkaloids taken out of them. The "cocaine free" leaves are then shipped to Coca-Cola.

    #1 and #3 are FALSE. The other points are exaggerated.

    Didn't know people smoked them, I've heard of people chewing them before. Do you know if they smoke them to get high or is it just part of a religious ceremony or something like that?

    I remember years ago when they started speaking about the dangers of Coke; They showed when you spill coke on dry paint it actually removed the paint on the wall !
    Its been years so I do not remember all the dangers of Coke!
