Anybody see the piece on Mountain Dew mouth on Good morning America? Apparently, doing the dew is 2-5xs worse than other soft drinks at messing your teeth up. Pepsi's response was us rednecks have poor hygiene and don't take care of our teeth.

I saw it too, on Good Morning America. It was a dentist that is speaking out against Mountain Dew, and people drinking it. It's factual that the sugar content in it is much higher, which is causing rapid tooth decay. Here's the link to the story

http://abcnews.go.com/Health/story...

Initial Statement from Pepsi to ABC News:

This is old, irresponsible news. It is preposterous to blame soft drinks or any one food for poor dental health. So many factors determine individual dental health, including the types of food consumed, the length of time foods are retained in the mouth, and the level of oral hygiene and access to professional dental care.

Sticky foods like raisins and cookies that tend to stay in the mouth longer and/or cling to teeth can be a significant source of dental cavities. In contrast, liquids, including those that contain sugar, clear the mouth quickly.

It's about common sense, including a balanced diet and proper dental hygiene -- like flossing and brushing teeth after meals and snacks."

Well I agree with this dentist. Kids today drink carbonated drinks like it's water. When I was growing up, you didn't see kids with silver capped teeth. You see it everywhere now.

well i think part of it is because us as parents don't make our kids brush our teeth like our parents and grandparents made us. trust me i drink mountain dew dr. pepper and pepsi. but i brush my teeth 2-3 times a day depending on how many times i eat and i brush my now 2 year old daughters teeth every time she eats so that the sugar from her food and drink does not stay on her teeth
