One dental expert wants to make certain people are aware of the devastating effects from sugary drinks.
A new study indicating sugary drinks raise the risk of tooth decay by 46 percent has caused Dr. Jason Armfield from the University of Adelaide and the Australian Research Center for Population Oral Health to say that soft drinks should come with a warning label.
The new study included nearly 17,000 children in Australia. The results showed that children who consumed more than 3 sugary drinks each day were at an increase of 46 percent to develop tooth decay. The results also discovered that about 56 percent of children ages 5 through 16 consumed at least one sugary drink every day.
