The Danger of Fizzy Drinks

Everyone knows that sugary drinks are bad, but fizzy drinks in ether sugared or in diet form is as bad for you as any form of sweets eaten consistently. Even worse, because soda is often the preferred drink, especially for teenagers, it can be addicting and harmful in large doses to your overall health.

The consumption of fizzy drinks has increased dramatically over the past 40 years and teenagers especially get approximately 40% of their sugar/energy calories from soft drinks.

The problem with fizzy drinks is its contents include a high fructose corn syrup, additive dye, acid, and caffeine. An average can of soda has approximately 10-12 teaspoons of sugar.

The trouble even with sugar free fizzy drinks is it’s not the sugar that causes tooth decay it’s the acid, which dissolves the calcium out of the enamel, making it easy for bacteria to enter and destroy the tooth. In addition, sugar is converted to acid by the bacteria on the teeth, which makes the problem worse. If the teenager has practiced poor dental hygiene along with drinking soda, the ramifications could be loss of teeth and other health complications.

Next time you’re thirsty The better choice is to reach for a glass of water or milk. The water will help in many ways but most importantly; it won’t cost you, your shiny, white teeth
