In brief: Do you have tonsils?
Often I have patient with complaint of bad breath and it turns out the be their tonsils.
As we get older those who still have tonsils develop little caves in them where food can get trapped and mixed with bacteria -- bad breath. If you have your tonsils and already have good oral hygiene. Look in the back of your throat - white particles in the tonsil area is sign that that is the reason.

In brief: Oral Hygiene
Halitosis is most often an oral-pharyngeal source, so i would practice good oral hygiene and see a dentist.
