New research, published in the International Journal of Dental Hygiene, has revealed that teenagers are twice as likely to suffer from halitosis when they skip breakfast.

Almost a fifth of participants said they had skipped breakfast and 36% of them suffered from bad breath – significantly more than those who had eaten breakfast.

Worryingly, only half of those who suffered from bad breath were aware of it – causing a huge impact on their social interactions and personal development.

It was also revealed that not cleaning your tongue was another huge factor in the cause of bad breath that affected those of all ages.

So make sure you don’t skip the most important meal of the day!
