Something to consider
I went to the dentist recently for my annual checkup. Dr. Ridley is always interesting to chat to and this particular day he was keen to share some newly discovered ‘stats’……… We live in an area that is the nation’s highest consumer of Iced Coffee. Did you know that there is said to be the equivalent of 16 teaspoons of sugar in a 500ml carton of Iced Coffee? And only a few more teaspoons of sugar makes up the usual can of soft drink.
Next for discussion was the diet soft drink. Dr.Ridley tells me that the phosphorous in diet soft drinks literally melts away the teeth enamel. (You can tell he’s a dentist, by his keen level of interest in all things affecting teeth.)
I left his dental surgery grateful to be living in such a fantastic area. The magical Blue Lake provides our beautiful city with crystal clear water and we are literally at the gateway to the famous Coonawarra Wine District, Australia’s Other Red Centre.
There is a lot to be said for water, tea/coffee…… And Wine!
