Imagine that it takes you 30 minutes to eat each of the following:
1 pound of grapefruit
1 pound of cotton candy
1 pound of salted crackers
1 pound of soda / beer
Each of those foods may appear completely innocent (sorta), but the fact that your teeth had contact with the food for 30 minutes, that once innocent food (sorta) can cause a lot more dental damage. The acidity can erode your dental structure. The sugar (expecially sticky sugars) can drill through the teeth. The salt can dry out the mouth, which will not produce as much saliva, which is what breaks down the germs in your mouth. The soda / beer does all three of those things pretty well all on it’s own.
These are the effects of wear and tear over a long period of time, but it is still important to be aware of the little things. Remember, anyone who has weighed 600 pounds got there slowly but surely. A little damage today multiplied by 15-20 years can give you some serious problems in the future.
One way to look at this would be to avoid certain foods or to not have long food contact with certain items. Another way of looking at it would be to chug or demolish foods and beverages as quickly as possible. I hope you know which one of the two these talks have been insinuating. And odds are that if you are smiling right now, you are thinking incorrectly.
