While the study parameters are weak, the science has been solid on the conclusions here for a long time. There is further science which would probably
indicate a greater problem with aspartame soda than sugar soda, and even corn syrup soda. Aspartame apparently has a knack for leaching nutrients from
the body, quite possibly leading to weakening teeth and damaging gums, beyond the acid effects alone.
Beyond all that, part of "meth mouth" (in fact, a big part of it) has more to do with the addict not keeping up with oral hygiene - there's more
important things to do, of course, like turning tricks by the dumpster, so they can get more meth, so they can stay awake to turn more tricks by the
dumpster (repeat, repeat, repeat.) or another way to look at it, meth users might typically brush their teeth before bed and after waking up, like
most of us do. The problem is, that might only be once a week. They also crave sweet foods more than the average person - I don't know why that is.
Point being...does diet coke make people forget (or not care) to brush their teeth? Or eat only snickers bars for a week straight? I think the fact
that the answer to that is "no", is even more damning to the diet soda. Not more damning than meth use in general LOL, but meaning it has to be
REALLY freaking bad for your teeth to trump the combination of meth use AND all of the bad-for-teeth behaviors that go along with it.
Luckily, I would only start drinking diet pop after lobotomizing myself, which I can't see myself ever doing. For the sake of the gene pool and the
economy (skyrocketing healthcare costs as a % of GDP), I really wish everyone would stop with the diet pop. And preferably the corn syrup stuff too.
Get a pop made with real sugar if you want one occasionally. Its not worth the damage to your body, brain, immune system, or your nation, those who
manufacture it or were involved in its approval, should be considered terrorists.
