Eight ways to fix bad breath before Cupid arrives
Bad breath can be embarrassing on any day, and it is one of the fastest way to ruin Valentine’s Day plans. Fortunately, there are several ways to control or eliminate the condition.
  1. Avoid pungent foods, such as those containing garlic or onion.
  2. Eat plenty of green vegetables, which help create an alkaline environment that is unfriendly to odor-causing bacteria.
  3. Strive for a low-carb diet, but incorporate an adequate amount of healthy fats, which help break down ketones (another source of odors) in the stomach.
  4. Drink plenty of water, which helps keep your mouth cleaner and your body healthier.
  5. Brush and floss, and clean your tongue daily.
  6. Chew sugar-free gum to help increase saliva flow.
  7. Don’t smoke, or use other tobacco products.
  8. If bad breath is persistent, see your dentist for an examination. This can be a sign of gum disease.
New study says drinking pure juice doesn’t harm teeth
Today’s children are tempted by a virtually endless variety of sugar, from breakfast cereals to candy, soda, and ice cream. Many parents, seeking a healthier way to satisfy their little one’s craving for sweets, turn to all natural fruit juice, with no sugar added. However, most juices have a high level of naturally occurring sugars, leading some to wonder about their safety. Preliminary research on the topic has been encouraging, finding no connection between juice and obesity or tooth decay.

The National Institutes of Health recently funded a long-term study evaluating oral health and juice consumption of children between the ages of two and five years. The study spanned several years and included data from thousands of children. Researchers found no evidence of increased decay, even among children who consumed more than the recommended six ounces of 100 percent pure juice daily. These results suggest that fruit juice may be a healthy addition to your child’s oral health, along with good oral hygiene and regular dental care.
