Bad Breath on a Talk Show

Monday, January 31st, 2011

Recently, E! TV’s website posted a short clip of an episode of the Dr. Oz show where Dr. Oz smells a woman’s breath and clearly taken aback by it. While it is a funny scene, and no doubt embarrassing for the woman, Dr. Oz does state that bad breath may be a warning sign of something else and is no laughing matter. It is definitely true that bad breath is not something to be ignored; it may be a symptom of one or more of the following conditions:

Dry mouth and gum disease are often linked to bad breath. This is because the volatile sulfur producing compounds in our mouth that cause bad breath thrive in a dry, anaerobic environment. When our mouths are full of healthy, oxygen-rich saliva, then it is harder for the bacteria to thrive and create bad breath. The best way to avoid dry mouth is to use oral care products that don’t contain alcohol (you may want to check your ingredient labels) and to keep hydrated, drinking plenty of water throughout the day. None of TheraBreath’s products contain alcohol of any sort and are ideal for maintain fresh breath.

Mice Look for Bad Breath in Their Peers

Monday, January 24th, 2011

Mice have a fairly simple life. Their main goals are to eat, survive, and procreate – if only we had it so easy! While mice are seemingly basic creatures, a new study published in the journal Current Biology shows that mice may be more intelligent in selecting their meals than previously thought – they use halitosis!

Past studies showed that rodents do use their noses to decide what to eat when around peers, they just couldn’t figure out how. This new study by US, German and Russian physiologists and neurobiologists finds that mice determine their meal choices based on the bad breath and sulfuric chemicals on the breath of other mice. Mice have a GC-D necklace subsystem (a subset of the olfactory system) that can detect chemicals on mouse breath. This allows mice to identify if a food source is safe or not.

The chemical mice can detect is carbon disulfide. Bad breath in humans is usually composed of similar sulfur-based molecules including hydrogen sulfide (which smells like rotting eggs) and dimethyl sulfide (which smells like cabbage).

The research team found that mice that do not smell carbon disulfide on other mice will not change their eating habits. However, mice that do find the stinky smell will alter their meals choices. Even mice don’t want to have bad breath!
