- Diet Soda May Destroy Tooth Enamel
It comes as no surprise that soda, being a sugary drink, is bad for our teeth but diet soda may be even more harmful due to the chemicals in it. Diet soda drinkers also tend to drink more than regular soda drinkers since they are fooled into thinking they aren’t consuming a lot of calories.
In an article by Huffington Post a case study was highlighted that compared the teeth of a chronic diet soda drink, a methamphetamine user and a crack cocaine user. The similarities in the teeth of all 3 participants was surprisingly similar. The combination of sugar and acidity in diet soda is an extremely harmful combination for your teeth.
