Bad for your teeth maybe, but phosphoric acid isnt unhealthy. I mean stomach acid had a pH of 1.5-2.0; and thats due to the presence hydrochloric acid.

What I have read is that regular intake of that kind of acidic liquid eventually leaches calcium out of your bones as your body tries to compensate and balance pH. I'm no doctor but I think there's a big difference between the appropriately local low pH of stomach acid and ingesting a pH 3 liquid every day.
