Dear Jah_man
Bad breath can have many causes - poor oral hygiene, tooth infections, problems with tonsils or throat infections, ingestion of foods that have a strong odour like garlic or onions, and various diseases. If you are troubled by bad breath it is a good idea to have a medical examination and for your dentist to check your teeth.
