Study Reveals Oral Health Link Between Soda and Drug use

Wednesday, July 31st, 2013

971007_78091126The consumption of soda on a regular basis has a laundry list of bad side effects on an individual. A new study recently revealed that it may damage teeth in a manner similar to that of methamphetamine and crack cocaine use. According to data released in the March/April 2013 issue of the peer-reviewed journal of the Academy of General Dentistry, tooth erosion is common in people who are addicted to soda and methamphetamine. The case study compared the mouths of three different individuals: An excessive soda drinker, a current methamphetamine user and a former user of the drug that admitted to long-time usage. While all three people in the case study admitted to having poor oral hygiene practices, researchers found similar patterns in the rotting and erosion of their teeth.

Consuming soft drinks
The combination of sugar, acid and carbonation found in sodas poses great risks to the overall health of the mouth and teeth. While the acid works to weaken the enamel, the sugar attracts bacteria that cause bad breath and play a role in tooth decay. In a scale provided by the Mississippi State Department of Health, Pepsi and Coca-Cola both have an acidity rate of 4.5 and sugar level of 9.8 and 9.3 teaspoons, respectively. To put the figure into perspective, the chart also noted that battery acid has an acidity rating of 6.

In addition to the acidic nature of the beverage, when sugar and bacteria combine in the mouth, extra acid is formed to attack the teeth. Acid can affect the enamel for a period of 20 minutes at a time, which starts after each sip of soda. This means that those who consume a can of soda over an extended period of time, or consistently intake soft drinks throughout the day, are prone to experience the most damage.

America’s Worst Meal will Leave You with Bad Breath

Monday, July 29th, 2013

1214298_40439605On July 2, the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CPSI) found the worst restaurant meals through laboratory tests from the organization. The winner goes to the unbelievable Big Catch meal at Long John Silver’s, which consists of fried fish, onion rings and hush puppies. This massive heart attack on a plate contains a whopping 33 grams of trans fat, 1,320 calories, nearly 3,700 grams of sodium and 19 grams of saturated fat. Phew, are you exhausted just thinking about this unhealthy meal? Just imagine the bad breath that you could suffer from after eating this meal.

Worst Meal: An overview
As the Worst Restaurant Meal in America, the Big Catch meal is getting quite the backlash as the company has taken perfectly healthy fish and transformed it into something that can seemingly clog arteries in the blink of an eye. With ever-growing research noting the link between oral and heart health, you can be sure that this meal will cause bad breath, promote tooth decay and create health issues that are long-lasting.

But Long John Silver’s is also practicing controversial techniques, such as using partially hydrogenated soybean oil. Additionally, the amount of trans fat in the dish has twice the amount of the worst dish on the KFC menu, which caused a lawsuit in 2006 from the CSPI.

“Trans fat from partially hydrogenated oil is a uniquely damaging substance that raises your bad cholesterol, lowers your good cholesterol, and harms the cells that line your blood vessels,” Walter C. Willett, chair of the nutrition department at the Harvard School of Public Health said. “It might have been defensible to use hydrogenated oil in the 1980s, before trans fat’s harmfulness was discovered, but no longer. It is outrageous that Long John Silver’s foods are still loaded with artificial trans fat and that the FDA still permits it in foods.”
