thornhill: I'm 29th with all of my teeth -- never had a cavity or anything.

Completely credit that to having barely drank soda since I was 18.

I stick with water, beer and wine, and mixed drinks maybe once or twice a month.


Don't forget the fluoride!

I'm surprised nobody has made any jokes about desolving teeth in the Adelaide suburbs- there's a barrel of laughs to be had!

I had perfect teeth till mental illness struck severely (extreme anxiety), which led to meds that caused dry mouth, and at the same time along because of the panic, I developed an associaton with both gingerale and warm milk as comfort drinks, which I would use whenever I got anxious (many times per day). The combination meant I went from never having a cavity to all my teeth getting cavities at once. Now every tooth in my mouth has been on worked multiple times, have I think about 6 crowns, and I'm 30. Because of Tourette's and mean dentists, it was extremely difficult to work on my teeth and they used all metal, and they all eventually failed. Finally found an extremely kind dentist who works around my issues and my teeth are stable for now, but I need maintenance work done on something or another every few months.

I use a lot of xylitol now. I think soda with xylitol would be a great idea, although it would like still have phospohoric or citric acid in it, but would still be better for your teeth and wasteline.

BTW, the guy looks remarkably healthy for drinking all that soda. I guess that's the look of youth.

They should bring back the namesake ingredient.  Movie theatre audiences would really be something then.

That probably did help. I grew up in Philadelphia where the water is fluoridated and my mom always insisted that I drink a full glass of water with dinner for its benefits (she's a bit crazy, but I probably have her to thank for my teeth being in better than average shape).

amquelbettamin: The Angry Hand of God: I just did some calculations based on the number of beers I would guess I drink on an average night.  I put down about a 30 pack every 2 days, which equals 180oz. of beer a night.  This is equivalent to about 5.5 liters of beer.  I also drink about a pot of coffee and various other drinks during the day.  I smoke a pack and a half a day and had a really bad coke habit for a while.  When I was 18, I was told that the enamel didn't develop properly on my teeth.  Basically, it meant that I was doomed to repeated dental visits that would require crowns, root canals, and other fun stuff.

Anyway, I still have no god damn clue how your teeth can get that bad, even when you drink that much soda.  I brush once to twice a day and use Listerine.  I am 31 now, and just lost my first non-baby tooth biting down on a god damn concrete Ikea potato chip.  As long as my grill looks good enough for a woman that she welcomes the idea of me burying my face in her meat wallet, my teeth are fine.

GOD BLESS AMERICA.

Get a urinal installed in your house. That must be a lot of peeing!


The secret is to not drink water.

I will admit, I am finally starting to get a beer gut after about 8 years of this. I am 6'1 and finally got over 220. I love to eat too. I just consume a ton of shiat. I exercise enough. Aside from having to take way too many dumps, everything else is great.

2013-02-05 11:24:55 PM
Idiot. Try brushing your teeth once in a while. And why isn't he huge? Is he not eating anything?

I drank as much as 6-8 cans of Coke (classic, not that diet garbage) a day for more than 10 years. I currently drink an average of 3 cans a day. I have 0 (zero) cavities.

"You sound fat".

Not so much, anymore. I was officially obese (topped out at 256 lbs and I'm 6' 2"). I decided I didn't want to be fat, anymore, but I like my garbage food and drink. I adjusted my diet and kept my Coke. I'm down to 194 lbs (BMI says that's normal weight for a normal frame and I'm a large frame guy) and still enjoy my Coca-Cola vice. Some people prefer beer, some wine, some scotch, some whiskey/whisky. I prefer Coke (MexiCoke when I can get it).
 
2013-02-05 11:26:05 PM

AverageAmericanGuy: It would probably be a good idea if he switched to Diet Coke instead. No calories, and no sugar, so nothing to make him fat and rot his teeth.


He's not nearly as fat as I figured someone who drinks 8 liters of cola daily would be, imagine how skinny he would be if he cut the pop out.

Or maybe his body has adapted and he is now 60% cola.

he is british, so...does it really matter?

He's Australian.  Adelaide isn't in England.  That said, I can't imagine anyone drinking that much soda a day.  Even at my highest level of consumption, I was drinking 4-5 cans of Diet Coke a day.  All that sugar and caffeine.....no wonder I was having trouble sleeping.  I couldn't imagine drinking so much my teeth rotted out of my face and I got blood poisoning as a result.

I drink about a liter a day. I can't imagine drinking 8.


I don't drink much soda at all, let alone one a day. But I read the headline as "Doing 8 lines of coke is bad for teeth" but I don't do that either.

Coco LaFemme: Even at my highest level of consumption, I was drinking 4-5 cans of Diet Coke a day.


Long ago, in a different life, I had a coworker who'd buy a 6 pack of Coke/Pepsi/DrPepper every morning. It would be gone by noon. Every day. Then he'd continue. So easily 12-18 a day.

He wasn't 'fat'. A little chubby, maybe, but not fat. But then again, he was only mid-20s. If I ran across him today, I'd be surprised if he wasn't a butterball.

Just what kind of beer are you drinking that you need 15 a night to maintain? You drinking a bunch of 3.5% ABV Keystone Light or something? The only time Ive ever been able to drink that many was with light beer, and then I was pissing every few minutes and had a stomach ful of beer.

If it is light beer, have you ever considered some stronger ales or stouts? They are farking delicious, and youll actually be quite pleasantly drunk after 6. I would drink a 6 pack and a 22 oz bomber every night and I would be quite sufficiently drunk. Thats only 94 ounces, and they tasted incredible as opposed to some pilsner.

bingethinker: Yikes. Even drinking eight liters of WATER a day would be bad for you. I'm not sure this guy is right in the head.


If he was when he started, he's not anymore. The sugar, caffeine and phosphoric acid have done a number on his brain by now.

I'm your height and 45 pounds lighter. I'm on the upper edge of acceptable weight for my height. You're "just starting" to get a beer gut? Where is all that weight then?

Back to the topic... I just quit alcohol *and* soda. Quitting soda is hard. I drank 2 diet Cokes a day. I looked forward to them, man. I *need* them. I promised! I can't break a promise to my body...

Been drinking kombucha. Smells vile. Tastes OK.

Not just any ale or stout I guess I should clarify since there is a lot of weak craft stuff nowadays... But most of the good IPAs are at least 7-8% Abv though, and the stouts are usually pretty strong as well. My go to Stout was over 9% without a hint of alcohol. This thread is making me thirsty.

If you work in the restaurant industry, this isn't crazy. 1L is about two 20-oz glasses with a reasonable amount of ice. You're in a hot ass-kitchen, the fountain is just on the other side of the passthrough, and you need something to drink, like, all the time. As smart as it might be to drink water all day, it ain't happening. If you drank two glasses of pop per hour, there's your 8L in one shift, and none left for when you get home. Hell, I regularly drink 3L of Pepsi a night just lying on the couch. Sure, I just almost died from blood poisoning, but a quickie root canal fixed me right up. Sure, the acid is eating through the enamel on most of my other teeth, but I'll just get falsies. Luckily, I have a history of diabetes in the family, so I'm sure I'll die of that long before I lose my last tooth. I'm highly addiced to the caffeine, badly enough that my body only responds to cola caffeine. Any coffee or tea will add to my heartrate, but won't satisfy my cravings. If I've gone long enough (20 hours or so) without cola, I start to crave chocolate--badly. The best part? I need the sugary, fizzy goodness to clear out the phlegm from smoking so many cigarettes, and I'm allergic to artificial sweeteners. Oh, God, somebody help me.

I used to buy pop in 2 liter bottles. I'm pretty sure they don't sell pop by the gallon. It's always ml or liters so why the confusion?

8 liters would be 4 of those large bottles.

Used to drink 1 of those bottles per day. Not anymore. Don't touch carbonated drinks at all.

Pointing out that the drug war is more destructive than the drugs could ever dream of being by themselves is apparently trolling. Just fyi, the link to that appeared in TFA, so my comment is not unprompted.
