Healthy Habits: Keep Bad Breath at Bay

Bad breath happens to all of us at one time or another. Chronic bad breath, halitosis, actually affects one in four people. However, dentist Dr. Harold Katz says people don't have to suffer. He has tips to keep bad breath at bay.
* Don't skip breakfast. Our mouths dry out overnight, and that creates a breeding ground for bad breath. Eating breakfast will produce saliva which naturally chases away those bad smells. 
* Drink green tea. Green tea has antibacterial elements and is pH neutral. 
* Stay away from sugar. Sugar feeds the bacteria that makes sulfur compounds, creating bad breath.
* Put down the cigarettes. Aside from other health issues, smoking dries out the mouth, creating more sulfur compounds, and thus bad breath.
* Keep away from dairy. The proteins in dairy feed bad breath bacteria.

Dr. Harold Katz is the founder of The California Breath Clinics and the developer of the TheraBreath line of premium oral care products. He is the internationally recognized expert in the fields of bad breath, taste disorders, tonsil stones and dry mouth. Known as the 'Bad Breath Guru' due to his numerous television appearances on shows like The View and the CBS Early Show, he has helped millions of people around the world control their bad breath problems. Read More
