Sports and Energy Drinks are Rotting Your Teeth

Share this post

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.
