So a certain 10-year-old recently lost a tooth. Does he put it under his pillow? No. He wants to see what will happen if we let it soak in Coca-Cola. Okay. I have heard of these little soda experiments, but have never tried any of them. Although I am not really a soda drinker, I will have “cheat” soda every once in a while. Call it my version of living on the edge. Edgy, I know.
We all know soda is bad, bad, bad, but in the moment a craving hits us are we really thinking (or caring) about how it rots our innards and leaches calcium from our bones? Not so much. There is just something about a cold can on a hot day.
Hmmm….let’s undo this craving shall we?
Check out this tooth after a week soaking in soda.
Although I wanted to put this tooth back in the soda for a bit longer and give it another week, the My Foodie Call member that was the rightful owner of this tooth scurried off to put it under his pillow. Does the tooth fairy accept brown teeth?
And this is just a tooth. Here are some other weird side effects in case you needed a reminder.
