Carbonated Water Could Damage Your Teeth

Many people believe that no-calorie flavored water drinks are harmless, even if they don't contain Nutrasweet or sucralose. Well it turns out that the carbonation may change the pH in your mouth to weaken and slowly dissolve the enamel in your teeth. Soft drinks and canned beverages are constant features of daily life, and the industry rakes in $54 billion each year. Some 95 percent of Americans drink soda, and 27 percent of overall beverage consumption is soda. So the solution is simple, just drink pure non-carbonated water.
