When I mentioned to a friend who is a Dentist I was doing the MC, she warned me about how bad it is for teeth. I had no idea until she brought it up. I asked her about drinking the lemonade through a straw and she said it doesn't matter,it's still bad for teeth. So it seems that's the trade off. What's good for your body is not good for teeth. I have been substituting blackstrap molasses because of taste, but it is also full of nutrients and minerals for teeth.
