... The prevalent use of antibiotics, especially in the medical sector, has resulted in increased bacterial resistance to antibiotics, the example of which is methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). This organism is resistant to all β-lactam antibiotics, including nafcillin, oxacillin, methicillin, and cephalosporins [89,90]. The occurrence of MRSA is the result of the most likely inappropriate use of a broad spectrum of β-lactam antibiotics. ...
... The study of monitoring the buffering effect in each drink is also documented, although this was not our aim, as the pH of mineral water drinks varies around 5 and above and their buffering is generally poor. As the solubility of enamel apatite is greatly increased, only beverages with a pH above 3.5 can realistically benefit from calcium phosphate supplementation in neutralizing enamel dissolution (Larsen et al., 1993); the factors known to cause erosion include all types of acidic foods with a low concentration of calcium and phosphate (Nayak et al., 2019;Zero, 1996). ...
