The "Bad Breath Guru" Visits Phoenix
Posted: January 28, 2010
Dr. Harold Katz, also known as the "Bad Breath Doctor or the "Bad Breath Guru", toured the country testing people for halitosis. When Dr. Katz tests people's bad breath, he uses a device called the 'halimeter'. A score above 100 means that someone likely has halitosis. A person who has a score under 100 means that their breath is fairly fresh. Many people were relieved when they found out that they had low scores on the halimeter.
Unfortunately, it's hard for a person to smell his or her own breath. Blowing in one's own hand is not a way you can really test how bad your breath is. According to Dr. Katz, he says "it's a good way to smell your hand." So, how does one try to smell his or her own breath? Dr. Katz says that if you lick the back of your hand, allow it to dry, you can smell if you have halitosis. Allegedly, the halitosis-causing bacteria will remain on the back of your hand, thus letting you know that you might have bad breath.
All in all, Phoenix passed the "Bad Breath Test", since Dr. Katz couldn't find anyone with dragon breath! That means that the Phoenicians are "kissable", just in the nick of time for Valentine's Day.
