    Oh, I'll have to send this to my mother who continually rants about the evils of Coke and how stories on the internet tell how it will de-rust a nail in 2 minutes, totally desolve it in 4, how the State Police use it to remove blood stains from the highway, it contains toxi phosphoric acid and its more deadly than a 30 round magazine? Let the fun begin...

    Airtime- I never heard any of that. Where did your Mom learn this. I've got to try this nail de-rust thing.

    I was always told warm coke was good at settling your stomach. I personally never feed it to my children, we do ginger ale.

    Folks who don't want people drinking coke for what ever reason or just like to watch myths circulate on the net created the following and many variants of the Snopes link. My mother would swear by these stories on the net. Now there is one saying coke is good and not evil and it's on the Internet so it must be true. I'll forward this to her to tweak her a bit and we'll all get a laugh. Coca-Cola Acids

    Coke will dissolve a 16p nail in a week or two (did it in school) will polish chrome will dissolve blood stains, and has even been used to torture people. (soda through your nasal passages is VERY painful, but does no damage.) It's a multi-purpose product.;)

    You didn't??? LOL! Well at least you admitted it. Something I would try. Thanks for the warning.

    Carbonic acid, pretty weak, but will make a mess of a "fine" finish if not removed pronto. (You do have time to get a rag and bucket of water.)

    I didn't "try" it with other soft drinks, but I think if it's carbonated, it'll eat the paint. At least that is true of the lacquers used in wayback times, may not be true with the water based enamels in use these days. No, that's an experiment I won't try.

    Do you wonder why it's very hard to find coke in a glass bottle anymore?
    Have you seen the tiny over-priced glass bottles?
    Buy some - you can taste the difference.
    Aluminum cans are also great for adding additional BPA and aluminum into your diet.
    Plastic is good for you.
    BPA is good for you.
    Aluminum is good for you.
    HFCS is good for you.

    Reproductive toxicity, including effects on fertility and development, has been identified as a key health effect of exposure to high concentrations of BPA, a recognized hormone-disrupting chemical"

    National Geographic Magazine -

    Critics of BPA cite the potential effects of low doses as a cause for concern. Research has shown that BPA mimics estrogen, a naturally occurring hormone, and therefore can affect the body's endocrine system. BPA's effects are often most pronounced when humans are in stages of rapid development, such as in the womb or during childhood. Laboratory studies conducted since the 1990s have noted that low-dose BPA exposure may be connected to abnormal penis development in males, early sexual maturation in females, an increase in neurobehavioral problems such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and autism, an increase in childhood and adult obesity and type 2 diabetes, and an increase in hormonally mediated cancers, such as prostate and breast cancers.
