Sooooo, turns out that pop/soda/Coke *does* rot your teeth. Um, now they listen? Where was this press release during the 1989 school year when a burgeoning nerdlet conducted (not so) scientific examinations into THIS VERY FACT?? Its a conspiracy I tell you!
Interestingly, the high-falutin’ eggheads found that root beer products don’t corrode teeth as they don’t contain the acidic effervescence in carbonated sodas. And while sugared varieties are worse, the diet versions are quite bad for your teeth too.
I wish I had a picture of my old 3-fold cardboard display with my ‘Abstract’ and ‘Results’ printed on dot-matrix printer paper and my hand-drawn graphs. I may have been scooped in the span of 18 years (*gah*) but it doesn’t hurt any less. Next they’ll be publishing the results of which paper towel is more absorbant….
