THERABREATH: What causes Bad Breath? - Dr. Katz

Bad breath is caused by anaerobic sulfur producing bacteria that live in the back of your tongue, throat, and tonsils. Now, bad breath can also be caused by foods. 

And those foods already contain sulfur compounds, or those foods can stimulate the bacteria to produce sulfur compounds.

The mechanism by which these bacteria create odors is by breaking down proteins. 

The amino acids in those proteins can contain sulfur compounds, and as they chop them up they produce chemicals.

Dr. Katz explains what bad breath is and where it comes from. There are a lot of misconceptions about bad breath. What you don't know might surprise you.
