Staying fit and getting regular physical exercise may help prevent bad breath, as a new study has found that individuals with healthy body mass index (BMI) measurements are less likely to experience gum disease.

Inflammation and infection of the gums are two main causes of bad breath. They are primarily the result of poor oral hygiene. When food particles are left on the teeth for long periods of time after eating, they can turn to sticky plaque, which can be difficult to remove. Plaque serves as an optimal breeding ground for many bad breath-causing bacteria.

However, researchers from the University of Florida found that individuals who had the lowest BMIs and highest levels of physical activity were significantly less likely to experience gum disease.

"Research continues to demonstrate that our overall health and oral health are connected," says Samuel Low, who led the investigation. "Weight management and physical fitness both contribute to overall health, and now we believe staying in shape may help lower your risk of developing gum disease.

He suggested that individuals who are suffering from gum disease improve their oral hygiene and visit a dentist.
