Mind your Breath

Hi everyone, is littlediet time again. I just went through a busy week, sickness is spreading everyday and a dietitian job is harder than before. Of course, doctor is the busiest one. I have to thank readers that still visit my blog and waiting for my regular update.

Since I met a number of patients, I hate when I am talking to a patient with bad breath. Is food one of the factor causing bad breath? Yes. There are specific food that cause it as they contain volatile sulfur compounds - the culprit in causing bad breath. These foods have odors which are picked up by the blood system and are exhaled through the lungs up for several days after a meal. Well, best examples are Onions, Garlic, Cabbage, Curry, Alcohol, Dairy foods (in lactose intolerant persons) and sugar. Maybe you all are not alert with it, but take my advice to control the portion you have for foods above. Hope you can have a nice day ever!
