I was really interested in the antacid lab that we conducted this past trimester. This has really taught me how to measure and actually put to the test some well known and easy to find antacids to see how strong they are and which is safest and more productive to use for fast relief.

May I Interest you in a tic-tac
Have you ever waked up in the morning and had bad breath? Have you ever tried to talk to someone and they moved away from you because of your breath? In medical terms, bad breath is called halitosis. There are many things that can contribute to halitosis. Including the things you eat and some of your body’s normal processes. According to the American Dental Association, there are ways to cause and get rid of bad breath.
Eating foods with garlic or onions tend to have an effect on bad breath. When we consume food it is taken into the bloodstream. The blood that runs through the body will come to the lungs where air is exhaled. The air exhaled will have a similar odor to what was previously eaten. The odor will remain until all of the food is completely digested.
Maintaining great dental health can reduce bad breath. Usually when a person eats, little remnants and debris is left behind. Brushing your teeth twice a day usually gets rid of most of the debris.

What other types of food can pollute your breath? What other ways can you keep your mouth clean?

This is a good post, but I think it may be missing something. I think maybe you should add something about why bad breath offends others. The reason bad breath offends others is due to VSC's, or Volitile sulfer compounds. These compounds include Casaverine- the smell we associate with dead bodies.Putrecine- The smell we associate with rotten meat. Skatole- the smell associated with fecal matter. And isovaleric- the smell associated with sweaty feet.
