Myth: Soda can dissolve teeth


Research: I have discovered the things in mountain dew and coca-cola that may dssolve teeth. All types of soda
have to have some sort of acid, in order to preserve flavor. Phosphoric acid is the best at dissolving teeth. Although it contains phosphoric acid, root beer has been proven the least likely to do so. Citric acid is the only other acid used in my expirament. It does not dissolve teeth as well as phosphoric acid, but it stains better. with either one, you'd have to delute it almost completely in order for the soda to be drinkable.
