Foods That Prevent Bad Breath

Dicle Belul

In every physiologically healthy individual, bad breath occurs in the morning due to the gases accumulating in the digestive tract or the bacteria that reproduce on the back of the tongue.

87 percent of bad breath is caused by the tongue and gingivitis. Such cases can be easily identified in the first examination by the doctor. On the other hand, bad breath can also be a precursor to diseases such as sinus and lung infections, diabetes, kidney failure and metabolic disorders.

The important thing is to take foods that will neutralize saliva. One of these foods is to consume plenty of water. Also, take care to use dental floss to get rid of food residues between teeth.”

Some foods can also be effective in preventing bad breath.

Lemon: You can throw lemon slices into the soda, eat the lemon slices when you run out of soda. For even more practicality, you can consume lemon flavored candies. Lemon is an effective food in eliminating bad breath.

Parsley and rosemary: Parsley has the property of refreshing the breath. In addition, rosemary can also be effective, provided it is fresh.

Apple, pear, carrot, radish: These foods are effective in refreshing and cleaning the breath. Thanks to the food fiber they contain, they clean the saliva and at the same time leave a sweet taste on the palate.

Mint and Cinnamon: Peppermint, along with its refreshing effect, is particularly effective against odors such as garlic and onion. Cinnamon is also effective in destroying bacteria in the mouth, especially with a special oil found in its shells. Cinnamon or mint flavored gum has a similar effect.

Yogurt: Half a cup of yogurt, which you will eat once or twice a day, helps to eliminate the smell of hydrogen sulfide in the mouth. What usually makes our mouth smell like rotten eggs is hydrogen sulfide. You can sweeten your yogurt with fruits rich in vitamin C."

New NYC Vouchers Aid Homeless Relocation Upstate

New York City is facing the challenge of accommodating a significant influx of migrants, with up to 10,000 migrants arriving per week. To address the overload on its shelter system, the city is implementing creative solutions. After facing rejection from upstate communities regarding housing assistance for asylum-seeking migrants, the city has decided to assist its homeless and lowest-income residents to relocate upstate. The CityFHEPS housing-assistance vouchers program is being expanded, allowing recipients to use the vouchers outside of the five boroughs, where rents are more affordable and there is more available living space. Mayor Eric Adams hopes that other parts of the state will provide a welcoming environment with job opportunities for these longtime New Yorkers. This expansion is an effort to create more space in the city's shelter system for incoming migrants. With around 113,000 people in the shelter system, including approximately 60,000 asylum seekers, the city aims to alleviate homelessness through programs like CityFHEPS, which has successfully helped 15,000 families find permanent housing in the past year. The cost of the migrant crisis is estimated to reach $12 billion by 2025, leading the Adams administration to implement a 5% reduction in city funding spending across all agencies. NYC is actively exploring cost-effective shelter options and ways to reduce expenses in caring for asylum seekers. New York City's response to the influx of migrants is commendable, as it tackles the challenge of accommodation head-on. With a significant number of migrants arriving weekly, the burden on the city's shelter system has become overwhelming. However, the decision to assist the homeless and lowest-income residents in relocating upstate demonstrates a creative solution to addressing this overload.
