Description

Bad Breath is a disease of the Mouth.
But, it may be due to the malfunctioning of one or more Organs of the Body.
It may be the result of an impaired metabolism.
Bad breadth is a foul smell from the Mouth when a person breathes.
It can be smelt by the person himself and by others too.
It is not a disease in itself.
It is a consequence of a disease elsewhere in the body.
It may be in the Mouth.
If you eat spicy food, it contains a foul smelling sulfur. This compound will go to the blood stream. It will take some time to completely vanish from the body. This is one of the cause of bad odor.
Bleeding gums, Decaying teeth or any decay in the Mouth may be the cause.
The cause may be in the Stomach, indigestion for example.
It may be further down in the Alimentary Canal or anywhere in the body.
A proper analysis, sorry diagnosis, is necessary.
Treat the cause, not the symptom and your estranged GF will be back.

And, O! Please, if I temporarily smell of garlic, do not accuse me of having Halitosis. I will go, brush my teeth and be back.
