Diet Soda Is Meth Addiction For Your Teeth

Diet Soda Is Meth Addiction For Your TeethAs it turns out, chronic consumption of diet soda tends to ruin your teeth as badly as methamphetamine or cocaine. A new study contends that chronic consumption of soda might damage your mouth in the same fashion and intensity that methamphetamine or cocaine does.

Professor of Restorative Dentistry Dr Mohammed Bassiouny remarks that both methamphetamine and soda are highly acidic substances that could potentially cause a wide range of unwanted dental anomalies. Popular brands of soda typically contain high levels of citric acid and phosphoric acid, which could cause chronic dental erosion.
