But if they're drinking diet sodas, they may be doing more harm than good.
While the missing calories are good for the waist, the high levels of acid in those drinks can actually erode their teeth.

This dental erosion hits the inside of the teeth and the biting surfaces the worst. Once the teeth breakdown, one of the only solutions is thousands of dollars in crowns.

She suggests rinsing the mouth with water after drinking soft drinks.

A new way to keep flowers alive longer works better than talking to them. An Isreali biochemist says a few milligrams of the human impotency drug Viagra keeps flowers fresh longer.
He says adding Viagra to vase water helps slow down the flowers' emission a gaseous hormone that ripens fruits and vegetables and eventually causes their spoilage. In fact, the professor says a single 50-milligram pill will sustain 50 roses for more than a week. The drug increases the shelf life of peas, beans and strawberries as well.
It's unclear whether eating the food would have side effects.
