Hi FireGuy, I too was a little perturbed by the statement regarding Pepsi, However I thought about it and realized that Coke was origionally made by a pharmacist and as a Nostsrom or treatment. Jim Humble doesnt say to drink it habitually but to disolve clots it seems effective. I have kept a Coke in my frig for years as it sometimes is the only thing that will stop some digestive problems. I usually let it get flat before drinking it very slowly. This way it helps when nothing else will. Shish life is strange. What is the acid that is used in coke and pepsi?
