Rodney Allan Bottoms, 45, was arrested Monday following an investigation by the state Division of Insurance Fraud. According to a probable Bottoms filed an insurance claim on July 6 in which he stated he was injured when he swerved while driving to miss a deer. Geico that he had missed four weeks of work and pay due to the injury. On Aug. 29, he advised the insurance company that he had failed to include a $3,000 "production bonus" in his wage loss report. The next day, he complained that he had not received any adjusted payments that included his "bonus." He contacted the company again on Sept. 3 to report that he was receiving his allowances for his "bonus" a month late and stated that he was scheduled to start injections that day and had been ordered to undergo eight weeks of physical therapy. When a state investigator began looking into Bottoms' claims, he discovered that Bottoms had never worked for the company he claimed to. The company owner examined the documents and said the handwriting on the wage and salary been turned in under his name was not his. He said not only had Bottoms never worked for him, he said he had never written him any checks or given him any cash. The business owner pointed out that he personally earned less money in a month than Bottoms had claimed to have received as a "production bonus."Altha resident charged with grand theft & insurance fraudRODNEY BOTTOMS Zann Geigers 4th grade class ......6 Starla Baggetts 4th grade class...10 Sandy Willis 4th grade class.......17Letters to SantaChildren tell us what theyre Man crashes motorcycle to avoid collision on bridge to rest before hitting the other vehicle.

Page 8 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL DECEMBER 18, 2013A bit of political Christmas CheerHear ye, hear ye, its a miracle. The House passed a two-year bi partisan budget that should pre vent the lunacy of another gov ernment shutdown for at least two years. The Democratic con trolled Senate is expected to pass the bill. But the Republican Party is engaged in a civil war with themselves. Moderate Republi cans are duking it out with the right-wing extremists in the party over this bipartisan effort to perform some function in the interest of the American people. Right-wing conservatives like Floridas Senator Rubio, Senate Minority Leader Republican Mitch McConnell and, of course, Libertarian zealot Senator Rand Paul along with Tea Partiers who hate any form of government are all opposed to the budget. For them, the budget didnt reduce the size of government to something equivalent to the 13 colonies. Its that small government syndrome. To be fair, Democrats dont like the proposed bud get either. Republicans refused to accept any tax in creases. Republicans want to avoid any tax increases and balance the budget by cutting entitlements, par ticularly Medicare, military retiree pensions and pensions for civilian federal workers. The committee repealed $63 billion cuts in govern ment spending directed by the sequestration act. But to get the funds to cover the $63 billion, the budget committee did a job on retirees, military and civil ser vice. The National Journal published a chart with the following budget information. Approximately $22 billion of the $63 billion comes from reducing gov ernment contributions to military pensions. The budget knife cuts pensions of military retirees who are 62 years old or less. Civilian federal retirees get scammed to the tune of $12 billion in pension reductions. Politicians love GIs, but not enough to pay them a decent pension for soldiering for 20 years or more. Once youve been shot at and hit, then pinching a GIs retirement pay takes on a whole new meaning. Airline travelers are going to do their part to the tune of approximately $13 billion in higher security fees for air travel. Fees on airline tickets are just like the array of taxes that appear on my electric bill and my telephone bill. Everybody tags on a tax. The remainder of the $63 billion, about $17 billion, comes from dog and cat sources which indicate that there was no real budgeting just a search for loose change much like people searching under couch pillows for money to pay for a pizza. Corporate welfare abounds, but Republicans refuse to end subsidies to corporations making billions in debt reduction. But tax deductions are sacrosanct. Bil lions will continue to be funneled through loopholes in the tax code. Of course, the individual taxpayer must still pony up his taxes, or else. Senior citizens tend to be staunch Republicans but their Republican brethren are doing a job on them. This budget whacks Medicare by reducing payments to doctors and hospitals. According to media reports, Medicaid was exempt from the budget negotiations but Medicare was not. Medicare is subject to a 2 percent cut aimed at providers, worth more than $120 billion over the 10 years of the sequester. By extending the sequester for mandatory programs, Medicare providers -including hospitals -will have to take the hit for two more years. But not so fast with plans to reduce payments to into the budget bill which exempted reductions in payments to doctors for at least three months. Republicans will protect Medicare payments to doctors, but refuse to extend unemployment payments for 1.3 million Americans. Three days after Christmas no more help from the government. Get a job, say Republicans. Get a job. Good idea, but what Republicans wont tell you is that there are three unemployed people for each available job. Heres a test. Take your morning paper, read the advertisements for jobs and go get one. Sounds good, but try it. Meet reality. Here is a simple economic fact that escapes the right-wingers. Ending unemployment payments takes cash out of the market thereby reducing demand for goods and services. The result is that businesses then have less demand for their goods and services con sequently no requirement to hire people. So ending unemployment payments to 1.3 million people will only worsen the job market. Well, its not only those unemployed slackers that Republicans want to punish; they are after the children of America. Yikes, we are feeding a bunch of poor kids. That has to stop. The answerreduce funding for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) by about $40 billion. The Center on Budget and Policy Programs re ports, The 2009 Recovery Acts temporary boost to Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) For families of three, the cut will be $29 a month a total of $319 for November 2013 through September Poor people quickly spend SNAP money because they have to eat. Again, ending or reducing SNAP money reduces market demand and businesses sell less and hire fewer people. Clearly, politicians cant spell economics much less practice economic theory. But this is America; people can be as dumb as they want to be. Its not against the law. We need a little more Tis the Season to be Jolly and maybe this bipartisan budget effort is just that, Heres hoping C ORNERJerry Cox is a retired military OXS COMMENTARY Late Night Laughs A RECAP OF RECENT OBSERVATIONS BY LATE NIGHT TV HOSTS.

A Mouse at Mother Macs House JIM McCLELLANS OUTDOORS Down South Its always a little dicey to tell stories about folks whove passed way. Usually I try to make sure I dont write any thing (much) that I wouldnt have said while they were alive. This story is an exception. If I had written this while my grandmother, Ella Mae McClellan, was around, I would still be in her house tracking down a little fourfooted friend who quite liter ally dropped in one morning while I was there for a visit. For some background, I should point out that Mother Mac got irrationally upset about any type of vermin in side her house. If she saw a bug, she took it as a sign that something needed to be cleaned more thor oughly. If she saw a roach in a cabinet, for example, life as we knew it would stop while she pulled everything out, found the intruder and scrubbed all the surfaces he might have touched. And if you happened to be there, you were automati cally drafted to help. Not surprisingly, I learned as a young child to keep my mouth shut when I saw a bug there. I hoped she would mellow out a little as the years wore on, but if anything she got even more vigilant. One day when I was home from college, I stopped by for a cup of coffee. We sat, as we had all my life, on bar stools around the counter in the center of her kitchen. As we talked, I caught a glimpse of movement on top of the cabinet. I thought it might be a roach and quietly hoped he would disappear back into the wall. But when I glanced up a second time very subtly so Mother Mac wouldnt notice I saw a tiny mouse looking back at me. Now, we had a real problem. Mother Mac would spend an hour cleaning for a mere bug. I was scared this mouse might cost me a semester of school if she saw him. While I was trying to send the mouse a telepathic message to scram, Mother Mac mouse leaped from his perch on top of the cabinet right down onto the center of the kitchen counter. My heart was in my throat. Mother Mac was on my left, with her back to the counter, turning toward me with a full cup of coffee. On the counter in front of me, right beside the salt and pepper shak ers, was a two-inch mouse who was suddenly frozen with fear. I think I prayed, and Im sure there was divine intervention because at that moment Mother Mac spilled a little bit of her coffee and turned back toward the sink. The mouse got his bearings and jumped off the out the door. She never saw him. With that tension relieved, I started laughing uncontrolla bly. Whats the matter with you? she asked as I tried to catch my breath. I didnt want to lie, but I wasnt about to tell her about the mouse. I just thought of something funny, I said. That was absolutely true. I was trying to decide whether it was me or the mouse who came out better. He left with his life and I didnt spend half of mine try Its VerY Wise to Advertise Make the most of your business with an ad in The Calhoun-Liberty JOURNAL To Our Liberty County and City of BristolWASTE PRO CUSTOMERSDue to the Christmas Holiday your solid waste pickup will be one day behind.

A: No, the Nutrition Facts panel is legally required to list content of certain nutrients, but listing potassi um content is optional. Taking steps to boost potassium consumption is a good idea for most Americans, since our average is only one-half to two-thirds of recommended levels. A potassium-rich diet is important for healthy blood pressure levels because it blunts the effect too much sodium can have in raising blood pressure. Although boosting potassium may seem tricky without content listed on food labels, the most concentrated sources of potas sium include many foods without nutrition labels: vegetables and fruits (with some much higher than Even for foods with substantial amounts of potassium, the Nutrition Facts panel may not list potassium content; this includes dried beans, nuts, seeds, milk, yogurt and cot tage cheese. Coffee and tea contain lesser amounts, but for people who drink several cups a day, these beverages can add important amounts of potassium; these, too, are usually not labeled with potassium content. Where you do see potassium listed, look for at least 10 percent of Daily Value. Daily Value is based on 3,500 milligrams (mg) per day. Note that the latest recommenda tions are for everyone age 14 and older to aim for 4700 mg daily. One cup of cooked spinach or broccoli contains over 800 mg, one medium baked potato has 800 mg and one medium banana provides 450 mg. With or without label information to guide us, increased potassium consumption is just one of many following recommendations to eat an abundance of vegetables, fruits, whole grains and legumes. Q: Ive heard that regular (sugar sweetened) soft drinks cause ero sion of tooth enamel. As long as I limit soft drinks to sports drinks and diet soda, do I have to worry? A:Yes, all these drinks can threaten the enamel layer that protects teeth. Research shows it is the acidity of these drinks that causes erosion of tooth enamel. The drinks acidity comes mainly from the citric acid, sodium citrate and phosphoric acid added to both cola and non-cola soft drinks, sports drinks and energy drinks. Regular colas tend to be most acidic, but acidic than plain water. And stud ies generally show no difference in tooth enamel erosion between sugar-sweetened and sugar-free soft drinks. Even lemonade, wine and nutrient-rich fruit juices (orange, apple, grape) are more acidic than water. When the enamel protecting teeth is eroded, that leaves teeth more vulnerable to developing cavi ties and can lead to irreversible loss of tooth minerals and structure. To protect your teeth, limit all of these acidic drinks. Even more important than the total amount you drink is the total time teeth are exposed to these acids. Extended sipping over long periods leaves teeth exposed to more acid than when such drinks are consumed in a short period. You might drink some water to rinse your mouth after any of these acid-containing drinks, but wait at least 30 minutes to brush your teeth; otherwise, you worsen damage by physically abrading enamel when acids have softened it. Another reason for avoiding or minimizing sugar-sweetened drinks and limit ing portions of fruit juice is to help weight management.

by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor A Panama City motorcyclist sustained minor injuries after he deliberately laid his bike down on one lane of the Trammell Bridge after he suddenly drove up behind Sunday afternoon. Raymond Glasglow, 53, was traveling west bound on the bridge around 3:22 p.m. when he braked and took evasive action to avoid slamming into the vehicle ahead of him, according to FHP Trooper D.L. Sanders. "Once he laid it down, the Kawaski 1400 sports touring bike continued to travel a short distance," the trooper said. "He separated from the bike right before it stopped." The motorcycle came Florida Governor Rick Scott talks with Health Depart ment Director Rachel Manspeaker during his visit to Bristol early this past Monday morning.

Rodney Allan Bottoms, 45, was arrested Monday following an investigation by the state Division of Insurance Fraud. According to a probable Bottoms filed an insurance claim on July 6 in which he stated he was injured when he swerved while driving to miss a deer. Geico that he had missed four weeks of work and pay due to the injury. On Aug. 29, he advised the insurance company that he had failed to include a $3,000 "production bonus" in his wage loss report. The next day, he complained that he had not received any adjusted payments that included his "bonus." He contacted the company again on Sept. 3 to report that he was receiving his allowances for his "bonus" a month late and stated that he was scheduled to start injections that day and had been ordered to undergo eight weeks of physical therapy. When a state investigator began looking into Bottoms' claims, he discovered that Bottoms had never worked for the company he claimed to. The company owner examined the documents and said the handwriting on the wage and salary been turned in under his name was not his. He said not only had Bottoms never worked for him, he said he had never written him any checks or given him any cash. The business owner pointed out that he personally earned less money in a month than Bottoms had claimed to have received as a "production bonus."

Altha woman charged with stalking after close call with truck on CR 267 A 41-year-old Altha woman wanted for stalking following an incident last month on C.R. 274 turned herself in at the Calhoun County Jail Friday. Kimberly Green Smith was charged and then given a conditional release. According to the complaint, Smith, who was driving a dark Ford pickup, was "aggressively following" a man driving her estranged husband's vehicle on Nov. 21. The man, who was employed by Smith's husband, recognized her and saw that her teenage daughter was in the front passenger seat. He said Smith tailgated him into Calhoun County from S.R. 69 in Jackson County. He said she stayed close behind him until he made a right turn onto NE C.R. 274. He said that after he traveled in the westbound lane, Smith's truck pulled up beside him, traveling west in the eastbound lane. He said Smith was shouting and making obscene hand gestures at him. He reported that when he tried to make a left turn where he was going to work, Smith blocked the gate with her truck. The man said he believed she thought her estranged husband was in the vehicle. Statements were given by several witnesses who saw Smith pursuing the truck. KIMBERLY GREEN Wewa man charged with A 27-year-old Wewahitchka man is charged with possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute and possession of drug paraphernalia after drugs were found at the scene of a single-vehicle crash on S.R. 73 South last month. Jeffery Ryan Marshall was charged Dec. 15 and is being held for the Gulf County Sheriffs Office (GCSO). According to the arrest affidavit, GCSO Investigator Greg Skipper was driving south on S.R. 73 when he saw a northbound grey truck go off the road and into a ditch before it hit an embankment. Skipper stopped to check on the driver and saw a white male a man he had previously arrested and knew as Marshall step out of the drivers side of the truck. Skipper order Marshall to stay until authorities arrived but he fled and ran south on S.R. 73. Skipper followed but lost him when Marshall turned down Otis Walden Road, running west. After Marshall disappeared, Skipper searched the truck he left behind and found a piece of crystal methamphetamine door. He found an inhaler labeled with Jeffery Marshalls name tucked in a red duffel bag. The bag also held a set of digital scales and numerous small plastic bags like those used to package narcotics. Prior to his arrest, authorities issued the suspect. JEFFERY MARSHALL A Liberty County couple involved in a domestic altercation at their Green Acres Road residence Dec. 9 are both facing charges. Danielle Parramore was arrested for aggravated battery with a deadly weapon after she allegedly swung a knife at her husband, leaving a red mark from his neck down his chest. He was not seriously injured. Kelyn Parramore was charged with domestic battery after his wife accused him of grabbing her by her right arm and pushing her to the ground while demanding money. She said that when she started to walk away from him, he grabbed her by the hair and back of the neck, causing her to fall against a bar in the kitchen. A deputy noted in the arrest report that several red marks were found on the back of the woman's neck. She said she then grabbed a knife off the bar and swung it over her right side as he held her against the bar. She said he leaned back from the knife as she swung it at him and then ran out the back door. She indicated she was upset that he had come home an hour after getting off work and that she believed he had gone to Blountstown to buy drugs. Her husband told deputies that she was "tripping" when he got home that evening and said she told him she was going to kill him. He stated they were "face to face" when she attempted to cut him. He became angry when he was taken into custody and after being put in a patrol car, told deputies, "I'm going to give y'all a reason to arrest me when I get out," according to the Couple arrested after dispute involving knife DANIELLE PARRAMORE

Page 8 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL DECEMBER 18, 2013 A bit of political Christmas Cheer Hear ye, hear ye, its a miracle. The House passed a two-year bi partisan budget that should pre vent the lunacy of another gov ernment shutdown for at least two years. The Democratic con trolled Senate is expected to pass the bill. But the Republican Party is engaged in a civil war with themselves. Moderate Republi cans are duking it out with the right-wing extremists in the party over this bipartisan effort to perform some function in the interest of the American people. Right-wing conservatives like Floridas Senator Rubio, Senate Minority Leader Republican Mitch McConnell and, of course, Libertarian zealot Sena tor Rand Paul along with Tea Partiers who hate any form of government are all opposed to the budget. For them, the budget didnt reduce the size of government to something equivalent to the 13 colonies. Its that small government syndrome. To be fair, Democrats dont like the proposed bud get either. Republicans refused to accept any tax in creases. Republicans want to avoid any tax increases and balance the budget by cutting entitlements, par ticularly Medicare, military retiree pensions and pen sions for civilian federal workers. The committee repealed $63 billion cuts in govern ment spending directed by the sequestration act. But to get the funds to cover the $63 billion, the budget committee did a job on retirees, military and civil ser vice. The National Journal published a chart with the following budget information. Approximately $22 billion of the $63 billion comes from reducing gov ernment contributions to military pensions. The bud get knife cuts pensions of military retirees who are 62 years old or less. Civilian federal retirees get scammed to the tune of $12 billion in pension reductions. Politicians love GIs, but not enough to pay them a decent pension for soldiering for 20 years or more. Once youve been shot at and hit, then pinching a GIs retirement pay takes on a whole new meaning. Airline travelers are going to do their part to the tune of approximately $13 billion in higher security fees for air travel. Fees on airline tickets are just like the array of taxes that appear on my electric bill and my telephone bill. Everybody tags on a tax. The remainder of the $63 billion, about $17 billion, comes from dog and cat sources which indicate that there was no real budgeting just a search for loose change much like people searching under couch pil lows for money to pay for a pizza. Corporate welfare abounds, but Republicans refuse to end subsidies to corporations making billions in debt reduction. But tax deductions are sacrosanct. Bil lions will continue to be funneled through loopholes in the tax code. Of course, the individual taxpayer must still pony up his taxes, or else. Senior citizens tend to be staunch Republicans but their Republican brethren are doing a job on them. This budget whacks Medicare by reducing payments to doctors and hospitals. According to media reports, Medicaid was exempt from the budget negotiations but Medicare was not. Medicare is subject to a 2 percent cut aimed at providers, worth more than $120 billion over the 10 years of the sequester. By extending the sequester for mandatory programs, Medicare providers -including hospitals -will have to take the hit for two more years. But not so fast with plans to reduce payments to into the budget bill which exempted reductions in payments to doctors for at least three months. Republicans will protect Medicare payments to doctors, but refuse to extend unemployment pay ments for 1.3 million Americans. Three days after Christmas no more help from the government. Get a job, say Republicans. Get a job. Good idea, but what Republicans wont tell you is that there are three unemployed people for each available job. Heres a test. Take your morning paper, read the advertisements for jobs and go get one. Sounds good, but try it. Meet reality. Here is a simple economic fact that escapes the right-wingers. Ending unemployment payments takes cash out of the market thereby reducing demand for goods and services. The result is that businesses then have less demand for their goods and services con sequently no requirement to hire people. So ending unemployment payments to 1.3 million people will only worsen the job market. Well, its not only those unemployed slackers that Republicans want to punish; they are after the children of America. Yikes, we are feeding a bunch of poor kids. That has to stop. The answerreduce funding for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) by about $40 billion. The Center on Budget and Policy Programs re ports, The 2009 Recovery Acts temporary boost to Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) For families of three, the cut will be $29 a month a total of $319 for November 2013 through September Poor people quickly spend SNAP money because they have to eat. Again, ending or reducing SNAP money reduces market demand and businesses sell less and hire fewer people. Clearly, politicians cant spell economics much less practice economic theory. But this is America; people can be as dumb as they want to be. Its not against the law. We need a little more Tis the Season to be Jolly and maybe this bipartisan budget effort is just that, Heres hoping C ORNER Jerry Cox is a retired military OXS COMMENTARY Late Night Laughs A RECAP OF RECENT OBSERVATIONS BY LATE NIGHT TV HOSTS.

A Mouse at Mother Macs House JIM McCLELLANS OUTDOORS Down South Its always a little dicey to t ell stories about folks whove passed way. Usually I try to make sure I dont write any thing (much) that I wouldnt have said while they were alive. This story is an exception. If I had written this while my grandmother, Ella Mae Mc Clellan, was around, I would still be in her house tracking down a little fourfooted friend who quite liter ally dropped in one morn ing while I was there for a visit. For some background, I should point out that Mother Mac got irrationally upset about any type of vermin in side her house. If she saw a bug, she took it as a sign that something needed to be cleaned more thor oughly. If she saw a roach in a cabinet, for example, life as we knew it would stop while she pulled everything out, found the intruder and scrubbed all the surfaces he might have touched. And if you happened to be there, you were automati cally drafted to help. Not surprisingly, I learned as a young child to keep my mouth shut when I saw a bug there. I hoped she would mellow out a little as the years wore on, but if anything she got even more vigilant. One day when I was home from college, I stopped by for a cup of coffee. We sat, as we had all my life, on bar stools around the counter in the center of her kitchen. As we talked, I caught a glimpse of movement on top of the cabinet. I thought it might be a roach and quietly hoped he would disappear back into the wall. But when I glanced up a second time very subtly so Mother Mac wouldnt notice I saw a tiny mouse looking back at me. Now, we had a real problem. Mother Mac would spend an hour cleaning for a mere bug. I was scared this mouse might cost me a semester of school if she saw him. While I was trying to send the mouse a telepathic mes sage to scram, Mother Mac mouse leaped from his perch on top of the cabinet right down onto the center of the kitchen coun ter. My heart was in my throat. Mother Mac was on my left, with her back to the coun ter, turn ing toward me with a full cup of coffee. On the counter in front of me, right be side the salt and pepper shak ers, was a two-inch mouse who was suddenly frozen with fear. I think I prayed, and Im sure there was divine interven tion because at that moment Mother Mac spilled a little bit of her coffee and turned back toward the sink. The mouse got his bearings and jumped off the out the door. She never saw him. With that tension relieved, I started laughing uncontrolla bly. Whats the matter with you? she asked as I tried to catch my breath. I didnt want to lie, but I wasnt about to tell her about the mouse. I just thought of something funny, I said. That was absolutely true. I was trying to decide whether it was me or the mouse who came out better. He left with his life and I didnt spend half of mine try Its VerY Wise to Advertise Make the most of your business with an ad in The Calhoun-Liberty JOURNAL To Our Liberty County and City of Bristol WASTE PRO CUSTOMERS Due to the Christmas Holiday your solid waste pickup will be one day behind.

A: No, the Nutrition Facts panel is legally required to list content of certain nutrients, but listing potassi um content is optional. Taking steps to boost potassium consumption is a good idea for most Americans, since our average is only one-half to two-thirds of recommended levels. A potassium-rich diet is important for healthy blood pressure levels because it blunts the effect too much sodium can have in raising blood pressure. Although boosting potassium may seem tricky without content listed on food labels, the most concentrated sources of potas sium include many foods without nutrition labels: vegetables and fruits (with some much higher than Even for foods with substantial amounts of potassium, the Nutrition Facts panel may not list potassium content; this includes dried beans, nuts, seeds, milk, yogurt and cot tage cheese. Coffee and tea contain lesser amounts, but for people who drink several cups a day, these bev erages can add important amounts of potassium; these, too, are usually not labeled with potassium content. Where you do see potassium listed, look for at least 10 percent of Daily Value. Daily Value is based on 3,500 milligrams (mg) per day. Note that the latest recommenda tions are for everyone age 14 and older to aim for 4700 mg daily. One cup of cooked spinach or broccoli contains over 800 mg, one medium baked potato has 800 mg and one medium banana provides 450 mg. With or without label information to guide us, increased potassium consumption is just one of many following recommendations to eat an abundance of vegetables, fruits, whole grains and legumes. Q: Ive heard that regular (sugar sweetened) soft drinks cause ero sion of tooth enamel. As long as I limit soft drinks to sports drinks and diet soda, do I have to worry? A:Yes, all these drinks can threaten the enamel layer that protects teeth. Research shows it is the acidity of these drinks that causes erosion of tooth enamel. The drinks acidity comes mainly from the citric acid, sodium citrate and phosphoric acid added to both cola and non-cola soft drinks, sports drinks and energy drinks. Regular colas tend to be most acidic, but acidic than plain water. And stud ies generally show no difference in tooth enamel erosion between sugar-sweetened and sugar-free soft drinks. Even lemonade, wine and nutrient-rich fruit juices (orange, apple, grape) are more acidic than water. When the enamel protecting teeth is eroded, that leaves teeth more vulnerable to developing cavi ties and can lead to irreversible loss of tooth minerals and structure. To protect your teeth, limit all of these acidic drinks. Even more important than the total amount you drink is the total time teeth are exposed to these acids. Extended sipping over long periods leaves teeth exposed to more acid than when such drinks are consumed in a short period. You might drink some water to rinse your mouth after any of these acid-containing drinks, but wait at least 30 minutes to brush your teeth; otherwise, you worsen damage by physically abrading enamel when acids have softened it. Another reason for avoiding or minimizing sugar-sweetened drinks and limit ing portions of fruit juice is to help weight management.
