Dear All:

If Coca-cola does decalcify, there may be another advantage. How much
sugar is in Coke?  It may do two things, decalcify and be a
cryoprotectant! We prepare our decalcified tissues for freezing and
cryostat sectioning by placing them in sucrose, so why not combine two
steps in one? 

Anyone willing to try it? Let me know the results!
