For many Americans Coca Cola has become their favorite drink. While this sugary liquid is okay once and a while, too many Americans have completely forgotten about drinking water. While water does not necessarily have that caffeine pick-me-up that coke does, it gives your body a more healthy energy boost. Not to mention water is a lot healthier for your body anyway.
Just to put things in to perspective here are a few statistics you may want to pay very close attention to.

• 75% of all Americans are chronically dehydrated and many have such a weak thirst mechanism that it is often mistaken for hunger.

• Mild dehydration can slow the metabolism up to 3%, but one glass of water can eliminate the desire for a midnight snack.

• Lack of water is the number one cause of daytime fatigue.

• A drop of only 2% in body water can cause troubles with short term memory, problems with basic math, and difficulty focusing on a computer screen.

[Updated From Source]

•Every 240mL of water you drink can decrease your risk of developing bladder cancer by 7%

•Men that drink only 1 or no glasses of water a day are 4 times more likely to develop colorectal cancer than those that drink 4 or more glasses of water every day.

•Women who are not receiving adequate amounts of water daily are almost 5 times (4.7) more likely to develop breast cancer than those who receive proper amounts.

COKE

• Coke can be used to clean many things, for example: Toilet bowls, sinks, corrosion from car battery terminals, rust on car bumpers, and grease from clothes.

• Coke can help loosen a rusted bolt.

• The active ingredient in Coke is Phosphoric acid which can contribute to calcium loss in bones and contributes to osteoporosis.

• Trucks that transport Coca-Cola syrup must place a “highly corrosive materials” sign on the truck.

So next time you go to grab a drink, think about what you’re putting into your body.

Strange Cases in Medicine – Exploding Head Syndrome


Exploding head syndrome is a medical condition that causes a person to experience a very loud noise that seems to originate from within the persons own head. The sound is often described as an explosion, roar, crashing waves, loud voices or screams, a ringing noise, or buzzing.

The noise most often occurs during sleep, but can also present itself when a person is awake. Although the sound can be extremely loud, there is no actual pain that follows an attack, and the attacks do not actually seem to cause any damage.

Exploding head syndrome, while not dangerous, is very distressing to the individual. The origin of the condition is not completely known however, some scientists believe that exploding head syndrome may be caused by stress or extreme fatigue. The condition can occur at any time during a person’s life, and may only occur once or may occur frequently. However, women seem to suffer from exploding head syndrome more often than men.

Along with causing extremely loud sounds, exploding head syndrome may also cause a brief flash of light. Also, the person experiencing and episode of exploding head syndrome may feel an extreme rush of adrenaline, similar to a state of fear or panic. Although, exploding head syndrome is not directly dangerous, it can cause some individuals to develop other damaging conditions. In some serious cases, the person will become afraid to sleep and will develop insomnia.

Because exploding head syndrome is relatively harmless, and normally goes away on its own, very rarely has there been a need for medication. However, in a few cases clomipramine has been used to relieve the symptoms of the condition.
