Getting ignored because of bad breath is something none of us would ever want. It’s humiliating and can make life not so pleasant. Many times the foods that we consume can cause foul-smelling breath to spoil our day or even cause a dent in relationships. Below we take a look at five foods that are known to cause foul breath and can be avoided if you are facing the problem.
Fish & Meat
Acids and beneficial bacteria in our stomach break down the fish and meat proteins into amino acids. Ammonia is produced as a by-product of the process, which has a sharp, pungent smell. Ammonia gets absorbed and transported through the bloodstream, reaching the lungs, which then releases the foul odour through the mouth. Fish in particular can cause a lingering foul smell in the mouth unless it is cooked with spices that help reduce the smell to a degree.
