You have sure noticed the terrible trend between teens. They sneak whole cases of Mountain Dew. MSG chips, and high fructose corn syrup to all their parties. Are not Coke and 7-Up just enough?
You can easily solve this problem by switching their cases with bottled water and nice stevia drinks, offering them to come over to the vegetable tray or organic hot dogs.

The Dew trouble was first produced in Tennessee and later, in 1964, it was sold to Pepsi-Cola.
Central Appalachia is one of the areas known for theterrible dental issues. As dentists explain, the area owes its “popularity” to Mountain Dew. “Mountain Dew Mouth” is the name of the rampant condition in this part of the US. Parents put some Mountain Dew in the baby bottles, and teenagers are forced to pull their own teeth because of the unbearable toothache.
“It’s a stereotype rooted in a terrible fact. Central Appalachia is No. 1 in the nation in toothlessness.”
But, this does not apply onlyto the poor, rural areasin America.

Thousands of players from every part of the world compete every day. During these epic battles, gamers who usually chug a 20-ounce bottle of soda every hour can finish 3.5 liters in 6 hours.
“They’re just sitting for 12 hours, just pounding sodas,” says Smawley.
