Halitosis, or bad breath, isn't something to ignore. It is more than a drink, a cigarette, or a food that can cause bad breath. Sometimes it is the sign of underlying disease as dyspepsia, gum or periodontal disease, and even Helicobacter pylori infection. The underlying cause must be found.

The King of Hollywood in the 1930's was none other than Clark Gable. He suffered from halitosis as his co-star Vivien Leigh (Gone with the Wind) mentioned to many. So did other co-stars. 

There are many breath mints and mouthwash that can work. I utilize essential oils, green tea, thyme, and ginger for halitosis. Recently the American Botanical Council in its HerbalGram  wrote an article on Ginger and Halitosis.
