When sugar is consumed over and over again in large, often hidden amounts, the harmful effect on teeth can be dramatic. Sugar on teeth provides food for bacteria, which produce acid. The acid in turn can eat away the enamel on teeth. Almost all foods have some type of sugar that cannot and should not be eliminated from our diets. Many of these foods contain important nutrients and add enjoyment to eating. But there is a risk for tooth decay from a diet high in sugars and starches.

  • Sugary foods and drinks should be consumed with meals. Saliva production increases during meals and helps neutralize acid production and rinse food particles from the mouth.

  • Limit between-meal snacks. If kids crave a snack, offer them nutritious foods.

  • If your kids chew gum, make it sugarless. Chewing sugarless gum after eating can increase saliva flow and help wash out food and delay productions acid.

  • Monitor beverage consumption. Instead of soft drinks all day, children should also choose water and low-fat milk.

  • Help you children develop good brushing and flossing habits.

  • Schedule regular dental visits.

#3.  Even MILD dehydration will slow down one's metabolism as 3%. 

#4.  One glass of water will shut down midnight hunger pangs for almost 100% of the dieters studied in a University of Washington study. 

#5.  Lack of water, the #1 trigger of daytime fatigue. 
#6.  Preliminary research indicates that 8-10 glasses of water a day could significantly ease back and joint pain for up to 80% of sufferers.

 basic math, and difficulty focusing on the computer screen or on a printed page.
