What Happens When You Eat Too Much Sugar?


You’ll get cavities

Let’s start with one of the best known results of eating too much sugar. The bacteria that line our teeth love to feed on simple sugars, a process that creates acid as a byproduct. This acid is created really quickly, too, within 20 seconds of consuming the sugar.

The acid then destroys enamel and creates painful holes that must be filled by a dentist to stop them from growing. Sour candies are especially bad for teeth because they already contain acid as well as sugar.
