I definitely agree that taking care of your mouth helps to prevent sickness. I know that one bacteria and diseases are in your bloodstream (which can come from your mouth) itís difficult to fix it. I prefer mouthwashes that donít have alcohol in them, itís less intense and doesnít give me dry mouth, which leads to more bad breath. I like therabreathís mouthwashes, theyíre more gentle and donít contain alcohol.
