When perusing the produce section of the local grocery story, one can't help but think that Mother Nature must have a sense of humor. We are told to eat healthy, and despite every intention to do so, we are thwarted at every step by health foods that cause bad breath.
Take the onion. This tuber is a nutritional powerhouse, packed with heart-healthy antioxidants and other vitamins. Added to foods, it can provide a healthful punch. However, few foods have the ability to produce bad breath quite like onions.
Then there's spinach. Few green-leafy vegetables have the high levels of vitamins A, E or K that spinach does. It has been known for centuries as one of the healthiest foods you can eat. It has also been known as one of the smelliest.
As if bad breath caused by eating spinach immediately following a meal isn't bad enough, it often gets caught in people's teeth, causing the smell to linger for hours.
While those who are making conscious efforts to eat healthier should be applauded, they should also be made aware of the likelihood that they will develop bad breath. These individuals may benefit from TheraBreath's line of specialty breath-freshening products.
