Soda Drastically Erodes Teens' Teeth

Drinking carbonated drinks like soda even once a day significantly increases a child's chances of suffering dental erosion, and those who drink them often have an even greater risk. A study found that 14-year-olds who drank four or more glasses of a fizzy drink a day had a 513 percent increased risk of tooth erosion. If you're thinking that most teens don't drink that much soda, a survey found 92 percent of 14-year-olds in Britain consume such drinks. If you are not yet familiar with the reasons why soda is one of the five worst foods you could eat, I suggest you read my past article on the dangers of soda.
