Bad Breath Article

Good morning (yawn!)

Woke up today and read the Toronto Star's Sunday Ideas Section and came over this article about bad breath. Apparently, Japanese researchers found that eating sugar-free yogurt reduced bad breath (volatile sulphur compounds, e.g. hydrogen sulfide) by about 80% after 6 weeks. Gingival (gum) and plaque measurments also improved when compared to non-yogurt eating volunteers.

Hmmm....but what about the taste? (blah!) :)

Take care as always!
