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, anyway?

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

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.
