In brief: Pancreas

Issues with pancreas causes food to rot and creates bad breath and acid reflux.
Use pancreatic enzymes - prescription is Creon otc is serropeptidase need 1 weekof rx. That is if you smell it - if others around you complain of bad breath the answer from dr. Kopes-kerr might be the problem.

In brief: Bad breath

Most cases of bad breath are caused by poor oral hygiene.
Brush & floss properly & use a tongue scraper daily. Decaying teeth and periodontal problems also are a major cause. This requires routine dental check-ups and proper dental care. There is a host of medical causes as well. For a general discussion of this subject see: http://smilesapartcosmeticdentist.com/fresh-breath-control.htm

In brief: Oral hygiene

Most bad breath is due to decaying crud in the mouth, between the teeth or on the tongue.
A good dental flossing with running it over the back of the tongue cures most of these. If it does not, look for a problem in the upper aerodigestive system.
