Bad news for energy drinkers. We already know they are bad for your heart, but new research suggests sports and energy drinks are also waging a war on your teeth. And they?re winning.

Who knew a can full of sugar and acid would be bad for your teeth?

A study published in the May/June 2012 issue of General Dentistry found that regular exposure (15 minutes a day, 4 times a day) to these drinks started causing serious enamel damage in as little as 5 days. Overall, energy drinks caused about twice as much decay as sport drinks.

Considering I can?t stand the taste of coffee, I might have to look elsewhere for my caffeine fix.
