I read something on the internet before about this, except it wasn't about your teeth, it was your insides. Needless to say, I haven't drank fizzy drinks (soda to you americans Very happy) in about six months.

Found it: What happens to you if you drink a coke right now.

According to those stats pop/soda should help you loose weight. Water and Root Beer should help you gain weight. I am far from an advocate of drinking pop/soda, and in fact I rarely drink it now. I stick to tea, herbal tea, water, and juice, but I can't help but wonder how they came up with those numbers. To me they don't make logical sense or maybe I am just on crack Dizzy

Yes, about 5 grams - 10% of the weight of your TEETH.

Read the article again. Post ia about teeth losing weight due ti plaque or dissolution, not body.

I don't drink much 'soda' at all for two reasons:

1). It's bad for you.
2). It tastes like something you've stood in.

I just drink cordial, water (flavoured or plain) or Nesquick Banana Milkshake (yum! Best thing ever!).
