1. Starches, like pasta,pretzels and potato chips. When you eat a handful of pretzels, enzymes in your saliva break the food in to simple sugars, feeding the bacteria that causes tooth decay.
2. Hard Candies, like peppermints. Many people don’t think twice about sucking on sugary candies all day long.  By doing so, they’re putting their teeth under constant attack by tooth decay-causing bacteria and acid.
3. Medicinal products, like antacids and coughdrops and breath mints, have as much -if not more sugar than chocolate!  If you can’t imagine life without breath mints, make sure to read the label.  Some brands pack nearly 1/4 cup of sugar per package.
