“If you’re like about one half of the American population, you drink at least one sugary drink on a daily basis — and there’s a good chance it’s soda.

Commentary:

As stated in the article, When you drink soda, the sugars within interact with bacteria in your mouth to form acid. This acid attacks your teeth. Both regular and sugar-free sodas also contain their own acids, and these attack the teeth too. With each swig of soda, you’re starting a damaging reaction that lasts for about 20 minutes. If you sip all day, your teeth are under constant attack.
