Smorgasbord Health 2017

I was at the dentist recently for a check up and some restoration work on one of my teeth that had broken. The dentist noted that my teeth were exhibiting some acid erosion and that I needed to reduce the amount of fizzy and fruit drinks I was consuming.

I rarely have any fizzy drinks and I am pretty careful about fruit juices too and I decided to explore my acid erosion a little further. I tend to drink bottled water and filtered tap water in tea and coffee, and since the majority of the fluid I drink is water, I decided to check out the pH value which determines if a substance is acidic or alkaline.

  1. I need to stop drinking Soda!!!! πŸ˜‰ ((I like it too much))… Good post here from Sally and tips to keep in mind… Thank you for sharing Chris… Sending love. Happy week to you πŸ˜‰ ❀ xx

    • How about starting by limiting the soda, Aqui, rather than getting rid of it altogether at once? Gradual πŸ™‚ Hey, did you know it’s called soda in the U.S. and pop here in Canada? Glad you liked Sally’s post and so wonderful to see you. Awww, hope your week is nice too! ❀

      • Yes… “Pop”!!!… You had once told me. I blame Netflix and my Cable TV and what I might watch over there… I am more used to the word “Soda” for that very same reason, you know … It seems they call it “fizzy drink” in UK πŸ˜‰ xx …. ❀

        • OK, so it’s fizzy drink for the UK ~ And Netflix is alright with getting the blame as they’re a huge business, hehe πŸ˜‰ Speaking of huge… HUGS are coming your way!! xo

  2. This is so educational ! What an eye opener! I recently took my children for cleanings and the dentist asked me if my children drank bottled water or tap. I responded mostly BOTTLED! She said bottled water does not have the fluoride in it unless its noted on the bottle. I will still be filtering the water but I will definitely check the acidity after reading your post πŸ™‚
