But the most devastating effects of tea with lemon causes tooth enamel. The Royal College of London conducted a study objects which were 300 people with serious diseases of the teeth. After analyzing the diets of patients, scientists have found the root cause of disease – the acid and sugar in various drinks that are used by the people. The number of drinks – fruit tea, juices, water or tea with lemon.
However, only by determining the cause, scientists did not stop. In further studies, they found that the maximum negative impact on tooth enamel drinks like tea with lemon, have if you drink them slowly over a long period of time. The results of this work were published in popular English dental journal British Dental Journal.
