As the only intelligent species on planet earth, humans have been very aware of the condition called bad breathe, or halitosis. If we go by the books, the mention has been discovered and discussed over by Ancient Greek and Roman writers.
Often referred to as stink mouth, the foul odor can shrink down even the boldest of personalities. Some cases of halitosis are caused by dental issues that run deep below the tooth enamel surface, and others are the results of behaviors, including eating certain foods, smoking, medications and health issues such as sinus conditions and gum diseases.
