Think Before Your Drink

By Jill Feilmeier on January 14, 2014 in Healthy Living

As energy drinks gain in popularity, dentists cringe at the harm they are doing to teeth all across the country. As if the acidity in these drinks isn’t enough, most are packed with sugar too!

Added sugar, including high fructose corn syrup, is a leading cause of obesity in the United States. Not to mention all the cavities it leaves in its wake as well.


If you couldn’t fathom eating 3 donuts for breakfast, your energy drink or morning apple juice is probably not the best choice.

Avoid a sugar overload: check the nutrition label to ensure you consume less sugar than the recommended daily amount; 25 grams for women and 38 grams for men.
