When it comes to curing bad breath, doctors say you should go straight to the source.

More often than not, the source of bad breath is your tongue.

Experts say a coating on the tongue is the most common cause of the odiferous ailment.

It comes from bacteria that help break down leftover food.

So, doctors recommend brushing and flossing as well as scraping the tongue.

You can buy a tongue scraper or just use your toothbrush.
