This is a great study. Bacteria on the tongue’s surface is definitely a cause of bad breath. Yes, it is important to brush your tongue, but I know that people with a sensitive gag reflex can really hate having to do it. It’s also important to brush the roof of your mouth too. Tongue scraping (and brushing) alone won’t fix bad breath and/or if you have white tongue. It depends on the shape and texture of your tongue, diet and a bunch of other things. Also, you can hurt your tongue if you scrape it too hard. You have to clean your tongue correctly. You can check out more about tongue coating here http://www.therabreath.com/art_whitetongue.as... and find out more about that yucky gunk on your tongue too.
For the back of your tongue, try using a mouthwash without alcohol in it, that should help too. Try any of Therabreath’s mouthwashes. None of them contain alcohol and they are safe enough to swallow.
I would also recommend taking an oral care probiotic of some sort. Here’s a great site with tons of information on probiotics and its benefits: http://www.proprobiotics.com
