Energy Drinks and Your Oral Health
Why are energy drinks a problem for teeth?
Energy drinks contain large amounts corrosive acids. These acids leech calcium and phosphorous out of you tooth's enamel. Enamel is the cover that protects the visible part of your teeth. Once you enamel is gone it is gone forever! These problems are heightened for teens and adolescents because their teeth are not fully hardened and therefore not as resistant to these acid attacks.

Coconut Mango Non-Dairy "Ice Cream"
While ice cream offers one option for a delicious frozen treat, is it really ice cream you want? If you read the labels of many commercial "ice creams," dairy/cream components seem to be lower on the list of ingredients than cheaper artificial or 'natural' additives. The calorie-per-serving count of many dairy-based ice creams is often enough to make us rethink our craving.
It Summer! There is no need to deprive yourself of a frozen delight. Perhaps it is just time to consider a healthier frozen treat for the more sophisticated palette!
