Tip #3: Skip the Bubbles
I think it’s safe to assume that we all know that soda is bad for us. The amount of sugar in soda is so high that it can lead to cavities and even diabetes after time. The caffeine in soda has been linked to causing cancer. The phosphoric acid in soda eats at the lining in your stomach and can even lead to osteoporosis. It also causes dehydration, which can lead to dry mouth. All of these things are really bad, but it’s even worse on your teeth. The high levels of acid and sugar in soda is a recipe for disaster for your teeth. They strip away the enamel on your teeth, leaving them vulnerable to cavities and tooth decay. If the last three weeks have taught us anything, it’s that water is the go-to drink this summer.
