    Coffee fights bad breath

    When people think of coffee, words such as caffeine, aroma and energy may spring to mind. Good breath, however, certainly isnt one of them.

    So researchers at Tel Aviv University in Israel, were in for a surprise when their study into the relation between coffee and bad breath, showed that coffee can actually lead to good breath.

    Breath specialist Mel Rosenberg of the universitys Faculty of Medicine found that there are certain components in coffee that inhibit the bacteria that lead to bad breath -- preventing these bacteria from making their presence felt, or smelt.

    Interesting! I never had any evidence of that but I had an intuitive feeling that that was true. I remember for example after dinner during some dates, I was worried about my breath from the dinner but if we went for a coffee I stopped worrying. I had a laugh Maybe thats just the rinse factor though.

    Maybe the industry will put out coffee flavoured mouthwash. Luckily we have ours already and use it several times per day. ;)

    I love coffee, but I honestly doubt this. I dont like my breath after I finish a cup. I always need a mouth rinse.

    In Italy after the coffee we drink a liqueur that is supposed to kill the coffee flavor in your mouth, and help the digestion at the same time.
