This is growing exponentially. Child on crack essentially. Coke has a ph of 2-3. Sparkling water has a ph of 5ish. Calcium teeth have eroded in three weeks from the soda. Relates to the ocean life that is eroding Pteropods swarm and respire which lowered the ph of the jar which caused their shells to dissolve. Children are adorable.
