Have a Coke and a smile?

Soda and Your Smile | Dr. Lucio H. Kim, DDS

Remember that slogan from a little way back?  Turns out, not so accurate.  Have a coke and chances are you will have an artificial smile. The soda companies have such a huge lobby in Washington that it's tough to fight them. Plus there are so many other issues going on right now, that a little bit of sugar doesn't seem to be high on the priority list. But the overall health of our kids is on the decline.  That is a fact.  And this means our future is in jeopardy.

I use this blog as a platform (albeit a small one) to help people improve their health...not only of their teeth but everything else if I can.  And it's all in that circle of life thing.  The mouth is not isolated from the rest of the body. It is the entryway for our nutrition and it can be used as a litmus test for our overall health. This a good shortcut to see what a can of soda can do to an adult body. It wreaks even more havoc on smaller ones.
