Bad Breath (Halitosis) and its Causes

Bad Breath, halitosis, oral malodor, whatever you want to call it is a condition which has plagued a large section of the worldwide population for centuries. This condition is one that is not only embarrassing to the person affected but also those persons close to them and are not sure how to deal with it. The condition affects the ‘sufferer’ not only physically but it also has a very significant psychological impact on the afflicted person. Some persons become recluses because they are so embarrassed by this condition.

The well-respected online forum, WebMD, in its article Dental Health and Bad Breath says the following about bad breath:

Bad breath, medically called halitosis, can result from poor dental health habits and may be a sign of other health problems. Bad breath can also be made worse by the types of foods you eat and other unhealthy lifestyle habits.”

The article also goes on to reinforce some of the common causes of bad breath, namely what you eat and poor dental hygiene:

“How Does What You Eat Affect Breath?

Basically, all the food eaten begins to be broken down in your mouth.  If you eat foods with strong odors (such as garlic or onions), brushing and flossing -- even mouthwash -- merely covers up the odor temporarily. The odor will not go away completely until the foods have passed through your body.

           Why Do Poor Habits Cause Bad Breath?
            If you don't brush and floss teeth daily, food particles can remain in your mouth,             promoting bacterial growth between teeth, around the gums, and on the tongue.             This causes bad breath. Antibacterial mouth rinses also can help reduce bacteria.

             In addition, odor-causing bacteria and food particles can cause bad breath              if dentures are not properly cleaned.”

Additionally, it is not commonly known, but smoking or chewing tobacco based, or other plant material including marijuana, can also cause bad breath and even affect your ability to taste food.

If someone has persistent bad breath (malodour) or a bad taste in the mouth this may very well be a warning sign of periodontal (gum) disease. The gum disease is caused when you have a buildup of plaque on the teeth. Bacteria then causes toxins to form, which results in irritation of the gums. If this periodontal (gum) disease persists untreated, damage to the gums and jawbone will result.

WebMD also identifies other dental conditions which may cause bad breath include poorly fitting dental appliances (dentures etc.), yeast infections of the mouth, and dental cavities.

The WebMD website also highlights that the medical condition dry mouth (also called xerostomia) can also cause bad breath. This is because the saliva is necessary to moisten the mouth, neutralize acids produced by plaque, and wash away dead cells that accumulate on the tongue, gums, and cheeks. If this does not occur and the dead cells remain in the mouth these dead cells will decompose and can cause bad breath. The condition of  Dry mouth may also be a side effect of medications taken to treat various conditions, salivary gland problems, or continuous breathing through the mouth.

The potential causes of bad breath also include numerous diseases and illnesses. These include, but are not limited to: respiratory tract infections such as pneumonia or bronchitis, chronic sinus infections, postnasal drip, diabetes, chronic acid reflux, and liver or kidney problems.

As was said before, bad breath, also called halitosis, can be very embarrassing and in some cases, may even cause severe anxiety. Because of this we are faced with the reality where store shelves are overflowing with gum, mints, mouthwashes and other products which it is claimed are designed to fight bad breath. But many of these products are only temporary measures because they don't address the cause of the problem; and some don’t address the problem at all.

Certain foods, a myriad of health conditions and our own unhealthy habits are among the many causes of bad breath. In many cases, bad breath can be improved with consistent proper dental hygiene. If these simple techniques don't solve the bad breath problem, a dentist or physician should be consulted to ensure a more serious medical condition isn't the cause of the bad breath.

Because of the devastating effect this condition has on persons there have been countless numbers of solutions that have been developed and marketed over the years.

Manufacturers have created and presented their own bad breath cure or relief, marketing their claims of the benefits to be gained from their product. However, bad breath sufferers have learnt that as each new product hits the market with the companies claiming their own exclusive proprietary formula it has become harder to distinguish what is an outright scam, what is a possible temporary solution or what is actually a premium product with actual positive benefits.

Persons have, over the years, spent hundreds, and in some cases thousands of dollars trying to find a solution to the malady of bad breath. These solutions have been presented in many forms, whether mouthwashes, toothpastes, supplements, cleansing etch. These have come in many forms.

Because of these experiences, over the years, the organization, Consumer Review dealt with the issue in their publication on their website at

In this article, they stated the following:

“We decided it was time to analyze them ourselves to find out which products were sub-par, which were flat-out lying about what was even in their pills, and which, if any, might actually be worth a try.

As we rounded up all of the big brands in the industry, we could see straight off the bat which companies were only there to make a quick buck.”

The Consumer Review went on to report the following findings:

·         “Most bad breath or body odor remedies do not contain what’s actually on the label.

·         In addition, we found that most companies who claim to have effective proven ingredients, actually don’t have. Furthermore, they include many irrelevant extras. This is disheartening and makes it difficult for the consumer to know which manufacturers are lying and which are telling the truth.

It’s hard to believe, but most companies slap on a label that says ‘Bad Breath or Body Odor Remedy’, often without even mentioning how much of each ingredient is in each formula or without actually including the amount they claim.”

It was in this environment and the desire to find a solution balanced by the uncertainty of what the results may be that the Bad Breath Report was developed, published and marketed.

The Bad Breath Report

Dr. Paul Keyes, Professor of Periodontology, Temple University is credited with saying the following about the Bad Breath Report:

"If people take the advice (in this special report), they can quickly eliminate their bad breath problem… and should enjoy excellent dental health for an entire life-time."

The Bad Breath Report, which is a product sold online through ClickBank, and the website states the fact, in the opening statements, that United States have developed the solution to bad breath. To quote, the Bad Breath Report website states:

“Miracle bad breath cure discovered by top US government scientists eliminates halitosis in just 3 days.”

The Bad Breath Report (which may be referred to as The Report) also claims that: You can make the same 'secret formula' at home with stuff you can get at your local supermarket for less than $2… and finally get rid of bad breath once and for all— even if everything else you've tried has failed!

Do not fool yourself, the Bad Breath Report is not a normal ‘report’ with just a set of facts or discoveries, it is a product for sale like any other product. It is not free information. It however tries to differentiate itself by being steeped in facts and factual scientific findings. These include the following as stated on the website:

·       Bad breath is considered the most unattractive personal feature you can have, bar none (not even stale body odor!)

A few years back, the British Dental Association in England commissioned a public survey in which bad breath was rated as the MOST unattractive feature any person could possibly have. It even beat stale body odor to the top of the list! And the results were the same for all sexes and age groups; there was no variation whatsoever. Everybody was equally repulsed by it!

Think about why that might be so: Even if you have it yourself, do you like to be near other people with bad breath? You might otherwise like them enough to try to ignore it… but your brain simply won't let you.

US government scientists discovered a simple & effective cure for bad breath more than 40 years ago. Back in the early 1970s, scientists at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), which is part of the U.S. Government's Department of Health, published a series of discoveries they made about bad breath in obscure scientific journals (which are usually only read by other scientists!).

Put simply, what they found was this: About 90% of all bad breath cases have a single cause, and, for people in this group, the NIH scientists literally fell over a specific combination of common household ingredients that eliminated the bad breath problem an incredible 96 times out of 100!

Think about it, if these claims are proven to be true this could be the solution that many persons have seeking to an age-old problem, and in an accessible and affordable way. This would be truly amazing and certainly worth exploring. This is particularly appealing and intriguing because like many people I have friends and relatives who suffer from this malady, and are constantly embarrassed by it. Could this truly be the answer?

The author of The Report, Tomas O'Caomhanach, was convinced of this and using the research of the NIH as a starting point, was able to devise a technique, which has since been updated, and even include more recent research as well. This new compound, or whatever you want to call it, works rapidly and gives the user almost immediate relief from bad breath. It also claims that “…And, instead of merely masking symptoms (like most other bad breath treatments), this simple 4-step procedure actually eliminates the root-cause of bad breath and provides specific recommendations to prevent the problem from ever coming back.”

What is even better, is that the product is not a physical product you buy and have delivered, but rather the formula to a compound you mix yourself with easily obtained, everyday ingredients, which you may already have. It is estimated that the cost to produce this mixture should be no more than $2. So not only is it inexpensive but you do this quickly… no waiting for your order to be filled and the shipment to arrive.

The Author of The Report, Tomas O'Caomhanach, on the website, provides a summary of the report including some of the causes of bad breath as well as the results after use. These are:

The Causes of Bad Breath and How it Affects Persons

“Bad breath, which is also known as halitosis, is full of unhealthy (and potentially-dangerous) chemical compounds that combine to produce the odor we recognize as bad breath. However, they are pretty smelly by themselves too. Some of the most common "ingredients" found in bad breath are…

  • Hydrogen sulfide, which smells like rotten eggs;
  • Methyl mercaptan and skatole, which smell like feces;
  • Cadaverine, which smells like corpses;
  • Putrescine, which smells like rotten meat; and
  • Isovaleric acid, which smells like sweaty feet!
Note that these chemicals are all given off by things that can cause disease or infection. And that's exactly how the human brain sees them too. In fact, for that very reason, it has evolved to recognize their distinctive smells instantly, and, when it does, it switches to 'survival mode' right away, and literally FORCES your body to isolate itself from whatever it sees as the source of danger.

It does that by making you recoil (to move you away), scrunching the nose up (to constrict the nasal passages, blocking any further noxious smells), and by making you gag (to prevent you swallowing anything). If you do inhale or swallow too much of those chemicals, you then feel nauseated, and may even vomit (to remove them from your body). In other words, you feel physical disgust!

If you have bad breath, that reaction probably sounds familiar! Other people turn away… step back… and cover their nose and mouth when you're nearby because the 'contents' of your breath are literally sickening them! Even if they personally like you, their brain sure doesn't – instead, it actually sees you as a DANGEROUS THREAT to their health and well-being… maybe even their life!”

The Report, as you can see, is very graphic in its description of this condition. But guess what, this is what is required for persons to take the ‘bull by the horn’ and deal with it, for your sake and the sake of those you interact with.

It however goes on to state the results from the use of this mixture:

  • fresh smelling breath,
  • strong healthy teeth, and
  • a sparkling white smile…
One point made in the report is that almost all cases (96%) of bad breath cases have a similar cause of bad breath which will be stopped with this remedy. You must however mix and combine the product and use it; just buying the book is not good enough. Having used it, after a very short time, and in some cases, as early as overnight you will see a difference. Your life will be changed for the better; no more ‘funky’ smell, no more embarrassment. It will be like you are a new person.

Have a look at this video for an overview of The Report.

This book, which is a relatively short 70 pages long, should take you no longer than approximately one (1) hour to read. Note however almost all you may need to know to treat bad breath symptoms are in the first 40 or so pages, so it’s an easy read.  Thereafter, it’s totally up to you. Your life can be changed so much if you follow the instructions carefully.

However, if you do as you are instructed and it does not work you may be one of the less than 5% of persons who have more serious problems and have to consult their dentist or physician. Do not delay.

In addition to the ‘remedy’ covered in The Report it also provides information on the following which will improve both you dental and overall health in addition to improving your self-esteem:

  • 5 simple things you can do today that can rid you of bad breath, even before you try the treatment! At the very least, this will slash your problem in half!
  • Brushing and flossing your teeth is good for you, but it will NOT improve your bad breath… find out why.
  • How to get rid of the ugly white coating on your tongue… without scraping! (Also find out why scraping your tongue will NOT get rid of the white coating… even if you scrape until it bleeds!)
  • A scientifically-proven way to eliminate mouth ulcers and canker sores for good… even if you have been plagued by them since childhood!
  • Why you should NEVER use commercially available toothpaste! Recent scientific studies prove that most of them contain harsh chemicals that cause huge damage inside your mouth.
  • A commonly used (and expensive) bad breath treatment that is recommended by so-called "experts" that, not only makes your bad breath more serious than before, but also screws up your overall health too!
  • The one critical secret to wiping out your bad breath forever… that nobody else tells you about. 

In the final approximate thirty (30) pages other topics and hints are covered. The author added that “…In the course of my bad breath research, I came across TONS of little-known tips and secrets on protecting your teeth and gums from disease and decay for life.

The Report, is easily downloaded on your computer tablet or smartphone in PDF format. With the high success rate of 96.03% and the amount of information provided the promotional cost of $29.95 is more than reasonable. Just go to and order. You have everything gain and very little to lose.

That being said, there are the approximately 10% of the sufferers of bad breath who will find this method does not work. This is because their bad breath problem is caused by more complicated medical issues such as:

·         Severe post nasal drip

·         Gastro-oesophageal reflux

·         Respiratory Tract infection

·         Chronic infections of the nose, sinuses and throat

·         Liver disease

·         Kidney disease

·         Diabetes

·         Chemotherapy

·         Hormonal changes

·         Eating disorders

The bad breath sufferer may be aware they have one of these conditions and that it could potentially contribute to bad breath, or they may not. The use of the compound may therefore have little or no effect. If the user notices no change they may have one of these conditions and should consult a physician, for the appropriate treatment. It should also be noted that the remedy as promoted in The Report is not suitable for children or animals. In these cases, the physician or veterinarian should be consulted.

Cost and Guarantees

The cost of The Bad Breath Report is $29.95. Just go to, sign up, pay the fee and download your file; it’s that start. Then you need to follow through by not only reading the book but also implement as recommended.

It is however recognized that there a small percentage of persons for whom this solution will not work. With that in mind there is a 60-day money back guarantee. To avail yourself of this facility an email should be sent to Tomas O'Caomhanach, the author of the report within 60 days of the purchase, with a brief narrative explaining how you used the product, the result and your receipt number. If it really didn’t work and didn’t help you your funds will be refunded. By doing this the author is standing behind his product and ensuring that serious purchasers stand no risk by purchasing something that can truly not help because of their own personal situation. High marks for this.
