Drink From A Straw For Healthier Teeth

This is a tip on how to save a few visits to the dentist. It is very simple; when drinking a pop or fruit juice, always use a straw, whether it is a can or bottle. When using a straw, the majority of the pop is sucked up to the roof of your mouth and down the back of your throat. Very little of it will come in contact with your teeth. This goes for beer too, use a nice frosted mug instead of drinking from the can or bottle. Of course if you are water drinker, please do the opposite; let the water wash over your teeth and gums.


Another reason not to drink out of cans; think of how many hands have touched that can, from the factory to the delivery guy to the store, and the dust from sitting on shelves. Don't get me started on the fact that cans are made of aluminum!

Not bad advice about using a straw. This is also good for someone with sensitive teeth or has just had some oral surgery.

YOU ARE SO-o-o RIGHT! What really gets my goat

is when I have a grocery emergency and have to go there during the floor cleaning after normal hours!

@#$#%%^&&&* Thinking there were laws that regulate the amount of "DUST" kicked up with the

huge elec. SWEEPERS, I learned recently that IF there

are any laws/rules, NO ONE FOLLOWS THEM, and that nasty GERM FILLED FLOOR DUST FLIES UP 5-6 FEET, that one can SEE, landing right back onto all the foods which we buy/eat/handle/trust. I say that THIS is ALSO one definite place contamination is coming from.

ANYONE WILLING TO TRY TO STOP IT? What would be wrong with demanding a VACUUM B-A-G for that

big sweeper, or that it's done by HAND for national

HEALTH? WHAT does anyone ELSE think? : (

Of course, pop is a useless beverage in the first place, wastes your money and adds calories or chemical sweetners. I saw something horrible in Walmart once. I got there really early and all the registers were not opened. The floor mats that the checkers were standing on all day were thrown on top of the counters so the floor could be swept. These are the counters where your food slides across.

I love drinking from a straw and I like keeping one in my glass at all times. If the kids come want a drink, it's easier to have them just sip from the straw than taking a chance of them spilling the drink. But when I refilled my drinks, it seems like the ice always clumped up and the straw wouldn't go in my glass.


I started putting the ice in, then the straw and then the drink. When refilling, I just keep the straw in the glass. No more stabbing the straw trying to get it to the bottom, as it's already there.

Well what you can do to even if there is ice in the bottom just tip the glass to one side and put the straw in the end with less ice, that's what I do.
