That's why I'm not in the medical field and went into computer science instead, although my dad insisted that I be a premed student. My GPa would have been much higher had I not had to take those bio and physiology courses.Your stomach can handle it easily, and it doesn't get to your intestines. (Look up 'buffering'.) I'm not so sure about your teeth. The sugar is what will kill you.
Dang, will make sure to rinse off any soda/beer next time I score street parking near an event.It will take paint off the car as well
I would think my own stomach acid would be worse than soda. That good ol' stomach lining, doing it's thankless job.Just imagine what it's doing to your stomach, and intestines.
I interpreted OP's "eating" comments as a bit of exaggeration. I filtered out the exaggeration and was picturing something along the likes of "etching" in that the soda left marks on the plastic that cannot be easily removed. I didn't think the soda acid would be enough to literally dissolve the plastic as in the case if you dissolve styrofoam with gasoline which I think gives you napalm.My cupholders have a removable rubber lining in them. Are you sure that's not what you are seeing? Nothing you can drink should be able to chemically attack any kind of plastic.
