This is a really good, explanatory article that addresses all the important points on bad breath.
There are several things that may cause bad breath. Dry mouth and gum disease are often linked to bad breath. This is because the volatile sulfur producing compounds in our mouth that cause bad breath thrive in a dry, anaerobic environment. When our mouths are full of healthy, oxygen-rich saliva, then it is harder for the bacteria to thrive and create bad breath.
Diet can also cause bad breath. Dairy foods, foods rich in sugar, a diet rich in meat products and alcohol can result in bad breath.
To avoid bad breath, brush, floss and use an oral rinse without alcohol in it 2-3 times a day. Make sure you brush the roof of your mouth and your tongue as well. Eating crisp fruits and vegetables like apples and carrots can help too.
There’s an article titled “Bad Breath Remedies That Work” here: http://blog.therabreath.com/2010/08/bad-breat... . It gives some more tips on how to avoid stinky breath.

here are some ways to fight against bad breath
1)Brush your teeth and rinse your mouth thoroughly after every meal to remove food particle from the mouth.
2)When you are brushing your teeth, also brush your tongue. The tongue is covered with thousands of tiny hairs that can trap bacteria.
3)Avoid breath mints and mouthwashes that contain alcohol. Instead of helping, they can make things worse. They only temporarily cover the smell and tend to dry the mouth, creating a more favorable environment for bacteria.
4)If you are going to an important meeting or on a big date, avoid foods that can cause bad breath, such as onions and garlic.
