Drinking through a straw

I recently read tons of contradicting information about drinking through a straw. Some health websites say drinking through a straw is bad because you swallow more air. Other health websites say that drinking through a straw is good because you swallow less air. Does anyone know for a fact which is true? I'm tempted to call up Mythbusters with this one.

Well it can't be that hard to test yourself. Get a straw and test it.

Re: Drinking through a straw

Way back when....I was told not to drink with a straw.....or drink from a water fountain......or chew gum. Sure there's some others. Now, I'm told to drink thru a straw and to chew gum after eating! It's no wonder we stay so confussed on what to do. Drinking with a straw is good to protect acid from your teeth period and I promise you acid reflux will ruin your teeth. I spent a fortune on implants due to the enamel on my teeth being ruined.
