We’re all about healthy habits at thedailyfloss.com, especially as they relate to tooth brushing and flossing. But a little natural help to eliminate halitosis never hurts.

According to ScienceDaily.com, eating some raw foods may help reduce garlic breath. In a study completed at Ohio State University whose results were published in the September issue of the Journal of Food Science:

“Researchers gave participants three grams of softneck garlic cloves to chew for 25 seconds, and then water (control), raw, juiced or heated apple, raw or heated lettuce, raw or juiced mint leaves, or green tea were consumed immediately.”

Which foods took a bite out of garlic breath? How did green tea fare? Read the full story for the science behind the results: https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2016/09/160923083806.htm

The real question: If Dracula – and vampires- can’t smell your garlic breath, does it still ward off their attacks?
