What is the chemical reason why my fingers turn green after I drink soda pop?
Even my good jewelry - the 14k white and gold rings turn my hands dirty even if I only have one can of soda that day. If I avoid soda and only drink tea or coffee this doesn't happen.
The solution to this problem Elle Pottsie gave I have heard years before but have never tried - the clear nail polish on the ring.
I have cured the problem myself with changing my eating habits but need to know why I can sweat, I can drink coffee, tea and multiple cups throughout the day but one can of caffeinated soda always creates this ugly green lines under my rings.
Please share your experiences.
Most carbonated drinks/sodas strip the body of essential nutrients. This is most likely the reason. Though coffee and tea may be caffeinated, they still contain many phytonutrients/antioxidants. This could be the difference.
The Phosphoric acid used mostly in cola drinks is the likely cause as it, is a very corrosive substance.
