Most Women Have Dog Breath

My favourite headline of the day...

Most women have dog breath

LONDON (Reuters) - More than half of Britons could have breath that smells worse that their pet's, according to a survey.


And women are the worst offenders, with three out of five failing a sulphur emissions test, according to research by toothpaste manufacturer Aquafresh.


"Some mouths may be dirtier than cat litter," dentist Brian Grieveson said in a statement that accompanied the research released on Thursday.


"Most people in the UK do not realise that cleaning your tongue is as important as cleaning your teeth," he added.


Scots had the best oral hygiene, with only 10 percent suffering bad breath, compared to 27 percent in London. Throughout the nation, 52 percent were rated at a level that could be worse than that of a pet animal.

"We are one of the last countries to understand the need to clean our tongue, with people in America and parts of Europe practising tongue cleaning routinely," said Grieveson.


Secretaries were the freshest profession, achieving 100 percent freshness in the survey of 1,000 people, while retail staff fared worst and received the warning: "You could be losing sales".

Disgusting. I'm British, and I thought everyone knew the importance of cleaning your tongue? And flossing, for that matter...

But then again, I've never been told I have bad breath. I guess better safe than sorry...
Dental facts time:

1) You shouldnt brush your tongue every time you brush your teeth as you can damage it; once or twice a week should be enough. But its essential, as the back of your tongue is where all the bacteria congragate.

2) Easy way to tell if you've got bad breath; using the back of your tongue (or as far as you can) lick the back of your hand, leave it half a minute and then sniff it. If it reeks; you ming

Why do the British come across with dirty teeth? In America, most Britons look like yuck mouth.

Didn't know this. I don't smell anything after half a minute, but then, I've got a cold

Everything you do continues long after you've gone
