Study: Diet soda can damage teeth as badly as meth, cocaine

Updated: Thursday, May 30, 2013 |
(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Seeing a picture of a meth addict is usually a good scare away from using the drug, but could it get you to stop drinking diet soda?

A new study published in General Dentistry determines that drinking diet soda on a regular basis can wreck your teeth just as badly as meth or cocaine addiction.

The study looked at men and women who consumed as much as 2 liters of diet soda per day for three to five years.

They found that a woman in her 30s who drank the soda experienced tooth rot and decay remarkably similar to a 29-year-old meth addict.

They say the acid found in diet soda is what causes the most damage to teeth.
