Energy And Sports Drinks Are DESTROYING Your Teeth!

Filed under: TeensFoodNutrition

energy drinks rot teeth

Which do you love more — feeling alert and focused or your pearly white teeth? If you chose the latter, then you probably want to stop drinking energy and sports drinks!

A new study has found that the beverages loaded with electrolytes sugar and crazy high acidity levels are actively (and irreversibly) tearing the protective enamel off our teeth after just 5 days of regularly drinking them!

The study tested the effects of nine energy drinks and 13 sports drinks on teeth to discover the results that would make any dentist shriek. And in case you're wondering, energy drinks (like your precious Red Bull) were the WORST offenders because they caused twice as much damage to teeth as sports drinks.

What's crazy is that these beverages are marketed to America's youth as if they will deliver a blast of energy that will help them overcome any obstacle or help their performance on the football field. In reality, kids are simply "bathing their teeth with acid" when they guzzle them down.

Some of you may be thinking, "Who needs enamel on their teeth, anyway?" If you want your teeth protected from cavities and decay, U do!

You know what other beverage is really refreshing and can even help wake us up in the morning? Water!

We have never been happier that we swapped soda and gatorade for good old fashioned H20!

The Harvard School of Public Health has determined that men who drink one sugar-sweetened beverage daily have a 20% higher risk of coronary heart disease than men who drink none.

Researchers came to this alarming conclusion even AFTER accounting for risk factors like smoking, sedentary lifestyle, alcohol use and family history.

The study,

former snl writer joe bodolai commits suicide

Sad.

Yesterday, the body of 63-year-old former Saturday Night Live writer Joe Bodolai was found by a cleaning crew in a Los Angeles hotel room.

Sources say that Joe had been staying at the hotel for over a week, and a bottle of antifreeze & Gatorade were found in his room.

After reading his apparent suicide note, which he left on his blog, it seems that Joe suffered from alcoholism, which destroyed his life. Tragic.

Our thoughts go out to Joe's family, friends, and loved ones during this very difficult time.

He will be missed.

Tiger Woods Loses Tag Heuer Sponsorship

Filed under: Tiger WoodsGolf

Tiger Woods tag Heuer

Tiger Woods picked up a new sponsorship from a Japanese heat rub not too long ago, which made it appear as if companies were beginning to look past his infidelity scandal. However, looks can be deceiving.

The golfer has been DROPPED by Swiss watch maker Tag Heuer, which may have been his most valuable sponsorship worth an estimated $10 million.

After being dropped by other companies including AT&T, Accenture, Gillette, and Gatorade, Woods is now at about a $25 million sponsorship loss.

He's still in pret-ty good shape though considering he is estimated to be worth about half a billion dollars!

Beetroot Juice Helps Cyclists Clock In Faster Times

Filed under: ZportzDietsFoodCycling

Beetroot juice

Move over Gatorade!

A study in the journal Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise has found that drinking beetroot juice helps competitive-level athletes, specifically cyclists, boost performance levels!

After studying nine competitive male cyclists competing in two time trials, researchers found those who drank half a liter of beetroot juice were an average of 11 seconds quicker over four kilometers and 45 seconds faster over 16.1 kilometers.

The key ingredient seems to be nitrate. In one trial the cyclists were given normal beetroot juice, while in another the cyclists unknowingly drank beetroot juice without any nitrate.

As a result, researchers found that those drinking normal beetroot juice had higher power output for the same level of effort than they did after drinking the modified juice.

Since the substance is completely natural and completely legal there is speculation that this may become the next essential dietary supplement to take athletic training to the next level.

It seems like it would most certainly be helping any cyclist participating in the Tour de France right now!

Tiger Woods Gets A New Endorsement Deal!

Filed under: Tiger WoodsGolf

Tiger Woods heat rub

Tiger Woods, who was dropped by AT&T, Accenture and Gatorade after his infidelity fiasco, is getting some endorsements back!

In Japan at least.

The pro golfer has become the face of Japanese heat rub used to relieve muscle pain. The company behind the rub, Kowa, has said:

"Kowa Company Ltd. is pleased to announce the use of Tiger Woods as the image character of Antiphlogistic Analgetic Vantelin Kowa series"

No word on what he'll be doing in commercials for the product, but they will begin to air in mid-July in Japan.

Not that he NEEDS anymore money, it looks like Tiger may be back on the upswing after his disastrous year in in 2010.
