When I was younger. I used to drink a lot of soda and eat a lot of lemons.. My two front teeth had to be reenameled because of it... I have been

Yeah it would have more to with the the lemon ... very acidic (as all citrus fruit is) and unless you brush your teeth every time you have one it's
eating away at your enamel. Not real bad for the occasional one but if your munching on them it can lead to a few denistry issues.
I have a problem with the evil label that soda has been given the last few years. Some of the schools around here have "banned" soda in the school
and supposedly children are not allowed to have them during lunch. I'm sorry but if you look at the side of the soda and the side of apple juice or
capri sun or almost any other drink other than water ... soda is no worse than any of the other drinks. You can argue that the juice is "healthier"
because it gives you some vitamins ... those can be met with one pill a day. If you want to ban soda than you better be banning everything except for
water, tea and coffee.
