Sweet drinks are good only for hummingbirds!

Sweet drinks are only good for humming birdsHumming Birds have the highest metabolism of all animals, a necessity in order to support the rapid beating of their wings. Their heart rate can reach as high as 1,260 beats per minute. They need to consume more than their own weight in nectar each day. Hummingbirds are continuously only hours away from starving to death, as they are able to store just enough energy to survive overnight.

Human beings, on the other hand, have a much slower metabolism and their teeth are susceptible to acid erosion and caries. Hence, sweet drinks are good only for hummingbirds. So, avoid snacking too often, or quenching your thirst with something other than water for a healthy mouth and body.

And don’t forget to brush and floss your teeth¬†daily.
