College Students Should Worry About Bad Breath

Thursday, January 6th, 2011

Winter break is almost over and soon college students will be heading back to class. Now that the school year is half over, many students have settled into dorm life, and have gotten comfortable in their routines. The lethargy of winter may have set in, and this is an especially important time for students to not let their personal hygiene suffer. Cold and the dryness of winter often lead to dry mouth, which is one of the main causes of bad breath.

To many, college is a time to party and socialize. College students are the primary demographic for pizza and beer companies – practically single-handedly keeping these food products in business. There is nothing nicer than relaxing in front of the TV with your friends, a cold one and a slice (or two or three). However, students should be aware that these products can lead to some seriously foul breath.

As we have discussed before, pizza is very rich in cheese, protein, starch, onions and garlic. All ingredients that can leave your mouth feeling less than fresh, not to mention may cause gas when digested. As if that weren’t enough to make you pop a TheraBreath Mouth Wetting Lozenge or a piece of TheraBreath’s Chewing Gum into your mouth post-pig out, the combination of beer and pizza does more to you than just make you full.
