Bad Breath

“Why do many Americans produce two immaculate, shining rows of teeth,  separated by an organ [the tongue] covered with millions of microorganisms, emitting  a strong malodor?”
(Gordon Christensen, D.D.S., Ph.D

“THE BASIC CAUSES of most cases of halitosis are now fairly well understood. According to research conducted by ISBOR co-founder Daniel van Steenberghe and his co-workers at Catholic University-Leuven in Belgium and our group at Tel Aviv University in Israel, about 85 to 90 percent of cases originate in the mouth. As with other odors emanating from the moist microbial jungles of the body-such as underarms and sweaty feet, bad breath is primarily the result of microbial metabolism.”
(Dr. Mel Rosenberg, The Science of Bad Breath, Scientific American)
