    Busting Mythbusters!

    I used to watch Mythbusters and I enjoyed they did their jobs and how they told their stories, until I caught them in a lie.

    Mythbusters tried to bust the myth about soda pop destroying teeth. They did tests and other stuff and concluded that soda doesn't do anything to the teeth.

    I don't have any teeth left to use because of everything that I've been through in my life and drinking Coke and Diet Coke was my thing.

    Back in the early 1990s I have four kids and they would lose a tooth here and there and so we did a test with regular Coca Cola and we placed a tooth in the bottom of a glass and poured in the soda and left it to sit that way for days.

    In a few days the tooth began to disintegrate and after the fourth, or fifth day, the tooth was reduced to a tiny pile of calcium dust that disappeared when the glass was moved. Totally gone, poof, into nothing.

    My roommate was reading something that said tyhe pH in Coke is 2.5 and in your car battery it's 1.0, I know I've used Coke to clean the corrosion off the battery terminals in my car, Geez I've been doing that since I heard about it in the 70s.

    The point is that I think Mythbusters got paid off by those corporations to say that Coke and all the other so called "soft" drinks damage and destroy your teeth, Roani also said that it messes up our bone density.

    Sorry Mythbusters but YOU ARE BUSTED!

    That's not cool, I know you drink that stuff too.

    If you look at who owns the stocks of those big corporations like Coke.... I bet it's all the Doctors and medical professionals that make a profit repairing the damage caused by those beverages and other products!

    Honesty has its merits, But that's pretty low!

    Bought and paid for by your friendly neighborhood Coca Cola bottler! Pffft!
