🙁 Sugar ):

There is more and more evidence accumulating to support the idea that sugar is 🙁 . It is not only a known contributor to heart disease, obesity, inflammation, acne and diabetes; but it is especially bad for your teeth.  Considering sugar is ubiquitous in our diets, let’s work together to figure out how to avoid it.  One of the biggest foods sugar is found is in our drinks.  Here’s is an interesting article on the subject: http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2014/08/140805102316.htm

So in the picture below which beverage is the worst for your teeth: : energy drink, juice, sports drink, or cola? The answer is quite surprising

The answer has to do with which has more acidity and available sugar.

Our first experiment focused solely on acidity.

It comes down to Coke or Gatorade, but Redbull has a lot of sugar so it could make a comeback in the next experiment. Stay tuned! It’s quite notable that Smartwater has a pH of 5.5, enough to erode dentin :/
