Even though is is one of the richest countries in the world per capita, with some of the highest measured quality of life around, Switzerland still wrangles with halitosis just like every other nation. You may feel that the wealthy Swiss think that their breath doesn't stink. Au contraire, they know it does, and they have conducted studies to prove it.

Research published in the Journal of Periodontology indicates that about one fifth of Swiss men have noticeable halitosis. This fraction was reached using data collected from recruits in the Swiss army, an organization that has engaged in almost no offensive military action since 1515, according to SwissWorld.org.

The investigators measured oral odor using a halimeter - a device that detects volatile sulfur compounds (VSCs) - and organoleptic metrics, meaning a subjective sniff scale.

They found that 156 out of 625 recruits had noticeable bad breath. The team added that a coated tongue was a reasonably good predictor of the level of halitosis.

No matter where a person is from, halitosis is a common problem that nearly anyone will suffer from every so often. Chewing a specialty breath freshening tablet may help neutralize VSCs and minimize odor.
