Article Body: There are many factors that could be the causes of bad breath, and many of
the factors that could be causes of bad breath can be dealt with quickly and easily using
simple techniques. In fact the causes of bad breath are so well documented that it is easy
to find the factors which are the cause of bad breath for you.

So what are the causes of bad breath exactly?

Bad breath, which is usually halitosis, is caused by VSCs (Volatile Sulphur Compounds)
in the mouth, these are the most common of the causes of bad breath. But what are they,

Bacteria in your throat and mouth help to break down certain proteins. When some
Amino acids which have a lot of Sulphur inside, start to get broken down and then
produce various foul smelling compounds from the back of the mouth and throat.

There is a common misconception that bad breath can come from your stomach, and
although it may feel like that sometimes, the smeel comes from the compounds produced
your throat and mouth. Some foods however after they have been consumed encourage
the production of certain chemicals that are then discharged via the lungs. So that extra
helping of deep-fried onion rings is actually making a smell through your lungs.

So how can we avoid these great causes of bad breath?

Well many of the causes of bad breath are things that we take for granted and use
everyday. Most toothpastes can be a cause of bad breath because the stuff that makes the
foam actually promotes production of VSCs.

A dry tongue can also be a cause of bad breath. The bacteria that produce those nasty
SVCs actually don't like oxygen, so a dry mouth is perfect and hence becomes a cause of
bad breath.

The nasty stuff from the bacteria comes from the breakdown of Amino acids, which are
found in protein. So high protein foods can be a cause of bad breath, even a generally
high protein diet could be one of the causes of bad breath.
Once you have elevated levels of the bacteria in your throat, it becomes very difficult to
fight off the bad breath as those bacteria can use anything to be the next trigger for your
bad breath. By successfully reducing the amount of bacteria in your throat you can make
sure that it becomes that much more difficult to get the bad breath in the first place.

You literally zap the cause of bad breath at its source.

So one of the causes of bad breath are those things that allow the bacteria to produce
more SVCs, so avoid or treat these and you will rid yourself of your cause of bad breath.
Otherwise hit at the source and reduce those bacteria.
