There are 3 comments on Sugar-Free Doesn’t Mean Worry-Free

  1. This is very interesting to me in light of my recently noted acid erosion and lack of traditional sources in my past and present diet/lifestyle. I wonder if you should consider the acidity of cinnamon flavored sugar-free gum – I chewed a lot of this in my teens and wonder if this might have contributed to my current problem.

  2. Good job on the research and the article. Given the large connection between dental health and overall health, this is important – potentially life-changing – information.

  3. I think health is more logical than people perceive….

    If something has an ingredient or a natural chemical component that you wish to intake less of….simply moderate your consumption of the good…..

    For example: “I LOVE SODA, BUT IT’S SO UNHEALTHY AND I WANT TO DRINK GALLONS OF IT! OH, I KNOW! I’ll JUST DRINK GALLONS OF THIS ALSO HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP CONTAINING NON-CARBONATED DIET-LABELED DRINK! I’M SO HEALTHY NOW!”
