BAD BREATH OR HALITOSIS (MASK BREATH)
Bad breath or halitosis is bacteria buildup causing inflammation and odors. Thirty to fifty percent of Americans have chronic bad breath. 90 % of the bacteria are below the gum line and at the back of the tongue. The odors are produced mainly from the breakdown of proteins sulfur compounds (hence the rotten egg smell.) Mouth inactivity and less oxygen worsen the odor leading to “morning breath”.
Obviously, certain foods (hold the onions) contribute to this but there are many other factors. Medical conditions including diabetes, liver disease, and respiratory infections can cause bad breath. Symptoms contributing are acid reflux, postnasal drip and a dry mouth. Alcohol can make your breath smell for hours after you finish drinking. Smoking causes chronic bad breath.
(Did You Know? There are over 600 types of bacteria in the human mouth.)
Treating halitosis can be as easy as good oral hygiene and regular dental visits. Watching what you eat, staying hydrated, and using mouthwashes that kill bacteria are also beneficial. Brushing, including your tongue, specifically with an electric toothbrush, is essential after every meal. Flossing removes the food that hides between your teeth and under your gums that causes bacterial growth. Gum disease also causes bad breath. Sugarless gum 20 minutes after a meal helps promote saliva that reduces bacteria.

LA DOLCE VITA, JOIE DE VIVRE:
Two final recipes for leftovers from Food and Wine Magazine…
Turkey Reuben Hash:
Add ½ diced onion and one coarsely grated potato to a pan with olive oil. Cook until golden, about 7-8 minutes. Add one cup drained sauerkraut, 2 diced green onions and two cups of shredded turkey. Also cook until golden, season with salt and pepper.
Risotto with Turkey, Leeks and Mascarpone Cheese:
In a saucepan bring 6 cups of chicken broth to a simmer. In a large pot heat olive oil, add 3 leeks that have been sliced in thin slices and cook until soft, about 10 minutes. Add 2 cups arborio rice and stir for two minutes. Add ½ cup dry white wine and stir until wine is absorbed. Add ½ cup of chicken broth every 5 minutes or so as it is absorbed by the rice. Do this until the rice is tender. Then add one cup of diced turkey, one cup of mascarpone cheese and ¼ tsp. of pepper. Salt to taste.
