So my husband went to the dentist today and she informed him that all carbonated drinks contain phosphorus and that is was slowly disintegrating his teeth.  He drinks 5 or 6 a day and it's been his source of getting enough water in his diet.  

He just came off 45 years of drinking coffee and I told him that probably didn't help either.  He's an O and we are thinking he's a Hunter - we will be testing him in the coming days.

But I'm a bit shocked at the Seltzer water thing because that is a Beneficial on my Swami and I'm assuming on his.

So comments are much appreciated on this topic!!!

seltzer water doesn't have phosphorus (or phosphoric acid) added to it.  It's simply water that's been carbonated.

My SWAMI diet is a blend of BTD and GTD Explorer, but I'm not totally compliant.  Also I try to choose foods that have a Low Glycemic index.  DW and DD are A+, probably also Explorer.

The dentist does not take into account blood type when he says these things.

I would suggest that he asks the dentist which is worse for your health, Seltzer water or mercury

How about just getting sparkling mineral water - no additives except carbonation.

now this looks cool!  but why are you adding wheat?  

Also.. why are these carbonated beverages good for us anyway?  is there an ingredient that Dr. D wants us to have in these drinks or is it just he plain carbonation that is good?

It has to do with a beneficial effect of the carbonation on the type O's acidic stomach.  Sorry I don't know the details.

Your husband's dentist sounds like an idiot, nutrition-wise.  Plain seltzer water is fine.  I drank it for many, many years as my "staple" water and my teeth are excellent.  It is commercial sodas (like Coke, Sprite, etc.) that have phosphoric acid.

Don't buy club soda, get just plain seltzer water.  Seltzer water usually contains nothing but water that has been carbonated.  Club soda often contains added sodiums, such as the ones listed in the ingredient list you just provided above.  Not the end of the world, but not something ideal for your hub's "staple" water, either.  Plain seltzer water is the ticket.  And kudos to him for giving up coffee after all those years (tell him he can enjoy green tea instead, if he misses it).  Seltzer water is a vast, vast improvement over that!

This is another good way to go (seltzer water being the other).  A good, naturally sparkling mineral water with nothing added (make sure to read the ingredients list!) is excellent.  I like Gerolsteiner, as it used to come in glass bottles (I think now it comes in plastic, though, sadly   ).  My absolute favorite brand of sparkling mineral water is San Pelligrino.  LOVE it.

Note:  some naturally sparking mineral waters have naturally-occurring sodium in them.  This is generally not bad at all for you.  I used to have a link handy for this awesomely cool internet site that was called something like "mineral waters of the world" and had a comparison chart of mineral waters and their various properties.  Unfortunately, I no longer have the link and I'm at work right now, so surfing for it is contraindicated.

The main diff between seltzer water and naturally sparkling mineral water is that most mineral water contains sodium and other minerals (like calcium, which is a good thing for O's because we don't eat much dairy...although we get plenty from greens, etc., usually, but I'm just saying, it can be a very beneficial thing that mineral waters contain, of all things, minerals   ), whereas seltzer water is mineral-free.

I agree with PT.  I like Whole Foods Brand of mineral water and I prefer it at room temperature as Dr. D recommends.  Different brands can taste quite different so try more than one.
