Negative Effects of Soda Pop - Dr. Michael Dagostino, D.D.S. Financial Policy - Part 2

General Health News - Part 1

Effects of Soda Pop

As many patients are keenly aware, we are strongly opposed to soda pop because of its ability to destroy teeth.

The August 2004, edition of the American Medical Association gives more reasons to stop buying this insidious liquid. “Sugar sweetened soft drinks constitute 7.1% of total energy intake and represent the largest single food source of calories in the U.S. diet. Coincidently or not, the rise of obesity and type 2 diabetes parallels the increase in soft drink consumption. One study states the odds ratio of becoming obese increases 1.6 times for each additional soft drink consumed per day.

Most people are unaware that there is the equivalent of 10 teaspoons of sugar in one 12oz can of soda.

Keep this in mind the next time you go to buy a 12 pack or 2 liter of soda pop.
