Default Study: Diet Soda As Bad For Your Teeth As Meth And Crack

Diet soda just as harmful to teeth as meth and crack cocaine, study claims



FOX – According to a new study published in the journal General Dentistry, constant exposure to the citric and phosphoric acid in soda – without proper dental hygiene – can be just as damaging to teeth as methamphetamine or crack cocaine, Health Day news reported.

“You look at it side-to-side with ‘meth mouth’ or ‘coke mouth,’ it is startling to see the intensity and extent of damage more or less the same,” Dr. Mohamed Bassiouny, a professor of restorative dentistry at the Temple University School of Dentistry in Philadelphia, told Health Day News.

According to Bassiouny, methamphetamine and crack cocaine are highly acidic, just like diet soda. The study referenced a woman in her 30s who drank 2 liters of diet soda every day for three to five years. When her teeth were compared to a 29-year-old methamphetamine addict and a 51-year-old crack cocaine user, the levels of tooth rot and decay were very similar.

You need to step it up, 90. I actually read this article this morning, and I was shocked I hadn't read it from your posts yet. Since I've started reading your posts, I've counted on you to keep me up-to-date on the news.




Those pictures are really disturbing. It isn't just diet soda. I'm sure it isn't contained to WV, but it is a huge problem in that state where a majority of children have poor dental health. They call it "Mountain Dew Mouth." Parents even give it to babies in their bottles.

I have nearly cut soda out of my diet entirely, really only use it as a mixer if necessary.

I just find it hard to believe you know? I mean, why don't more people have janked up teeth then? Is it because druggies don't brush their teeth or something?

Anybody who doesnt brush their teeth regularly is going to have rotten teeth.

I saw this thing the other day where this guy went to the dentist for the first time in years and he had maggots living in his gums. They were visible after the dentist pulled his teeth out.

The citric and acid in diet sodas eat away at your enamel and once that's gone, your teeth are toast.

Maybe the people I've seen with meth teeth actually had Diet Coke teeth.
