I watched a show called "Mythbusters" on the various Coke myths. Pesticide was busted as fake.

IOM it cant be used for ant's, ant's love it.

I supose chocolate could be called a poison aswell, it kills cat's and dog's, serious. It poisons their blood.

Whatever insect they are using this on (you dont know?) has an inability to handle Phosfuric Acid. Coke is made up of about 60% Phosfuric Acid, 30% caramel and the rest water. Suprised? what do think gives it its tang and it copper cleaning abilities?

Now if you want a very nasty pestercide go for the cigarete butts in water method, that prety much kills anything.

Hi Trev,

I always thought this was the Coke recipe:

Ingredients

* 1 oz. Citrate Caffein
* 3 oz. Citric Acid
* 1 oz. Ext. Vanilla
* 1 Qt. Lime Juice
* 2 1/2 oz. Flavoring
* 30 lbs. Sugar
* 4 oz. F.E. Coco
* Caramel sufficient
* 2 1/2 gal. Water


Flavoring

* 80 Oil Orange
* 40 Oil Cinnamon
* 120 Oil Lemon
* 20 Oil Coriander
* 40 Oil Nutmeg
* 40 Oil Neroli
* 1 Qt. Alcohol


Directions

1. Mix Caffeine Acid and Lime Juice
2. 1 Qt. Boiling water add vanilla and flavoring when cool.
3. Let stand for 24 hours.


Some Notes on Preparing The Coca-Cola Formula

* It takes 1 oz. of syrup mixed with carbonated water to make a 6.5 oz. serving of Coca-Cola.
* "F.E. Coco" means fluid extract of coca (the plant that produces cocaine), however the recipe does not go into details as to how this extract was prepared. Another ol Coca-Cola formula in the possession of Frank Robinson's great-grandson1, indicates that 10 pounds of coca leaf are required to flavor 36 gallons of syrup. It is also believed that the coca plant with lower cocaine levels was used to produce the extract. This is based on some of Pemberton's writings that indicate some coca plants were too bitter (that was because of cocaine).
* The cola in Coca-Cola comes from the kola nut, yet kola nuts are not mentioned in the above Coca-Cola formula. This was because the reason for using kola nuts was for their caffeine content, and Pemberton almost positively bought his "Citrate Caffein" from a company that derived their caffeine from kola nuts. (Pemberton had previously praised the German firm Merck of producing a superior form of the stimulant from kola nuts)

You could be right there Cal, is that for the home made one or the factory commercial stuff you buy from the shops?

I was only told by a chemist once what was in coke, ( when i was working at a chemical plant), maybe he was wrong lol, however it cleans coins good dont it?

Sure it does though there is probally limited proof on the case. Sugar is actually poisonous to us, refined sugar that is, not so much natural as there is a big difference, and when eating natural food there are only small amounts of sugar consumed in each meal. Infact any food thats been refined is bad for us.

Read here buddy on what junk food does to your stomach.

http://www.drnatura.com/

http://www.gifam.org/npcleansing.htm...&OVMTC=content

Just for the record, ever wonderd why the meat you buy in the shops stays red for a week? It stays red because its coverd in famaldahyde (casnagenic preservative). Formaldahyde has been proven to give rats cancer within 2 years through inhalation of famaldahyde after only being exsposed to famaldahyde on and off for short times in a period of 2 weeks. And we eat it!!! Its also used in dead human bodies to preserve the body until it is layed to rest.

Its not only about food we eat but also what we eat our food from, our dishes. Ive made dishwashing liquid before and i can tell ya the stuff is not nice. Everytime we wash our dishes there is some left on the plate, its a resedue. This residue mixes with our food the next time we use the plate. We consume some of the poisons from the dishwashing liquid everytime we eat our food. Now you may be thinking ahh thats nothing to worry about, but think about it, give it 40years of being exsposed and consuming the chemicals from the cleaning liquid and things start to mount up.

But getting back to your question, i think its safe to say that different animals can tollerate differnt foods then others. Our make ups are all different. For an example. Cows are suposed to eat grass ect, as soon as man started to feed them protein enriched pellets ( meat mixed with grain to fatten the stock up)they developed "mad cow desise". Nobody still has any idea why this occurs but the theroy is its man's doing of changing nature from somthing thats suposed to be a vegetarian to being carniverous. It changed a protein make up in the cows over time and all of a sudden we have this "mad cow desise". "Mad cow desise" is a protein thats gone crazy and eats the brain away or eats holes in the brain to be more specific, and nothing kills it, even heat. Everytime the protein is passed from one cow to another its considerably advanced or more specific, evolved.

Another example, Praying Mantis insects are radio active or atleast hold radioactivity in them.

Another example, bites, some animals can take poisons from one bite and handle it while others cant and die.

Another example, Some animals can eat certain grasses while it kills others.

Science in the animal make up is very technical, nothing in any species is the same. Example, your blood type is probally diferent to mine. Look up Animal Bioligy/Microbe's (Micro Bioligy) and you will even find out more things on how animals tolerate differnt foods/work ect from others, and even what lurks around the house.

I don't know about killing, but it sure is rough on dental health with all the sugar and carbonic acid. (sugar + soda water) The Phosphorous acid isn't that good for the skin either. Much better to drink juice.
