HALITOSIS

Written by

Bad breath. This may be a sign of illness – for example, lung disease or SINUSITIS; and a person with DIABETES MELLITUS may have breath tainted with acetone if his or her sugar metabolism is poorly controlled. Usually, however, halitosis is caused by smoking, drinking alcohol, eating certain foods (garlic or onions), or inadequate oral and dental hygiene.
