Prism Podcast Episode 4
Grant and Jason discuss Big Soda.
On a recent episode (August 31) of The Skeptics Guide to the Universe Dr. Steven Novella mentioned that drinking soda wasn’t that bad for your teeth.
We beg to differ!
Anything with a pH of less than 5.5 will erode tooth enamel.
Soda has a pH of 2.4 – 4.0. Since soda is sipped on repeatedly throughout a lifetime the teeth can have severe negative erosion.
