Have garlic breath? I'll talk to you. No, really, the smell of garlic breath doesn't even faze me. Now, if you've got morning breath, that's a different story.

I guess I'm in the minority when it comes to not being bothered by garlic breath because most people are repulsed by it, But, does this mean we should stop eating it so that we don't make others cringe when the smell comes from our mouths? Um, no!

Go ahead and eat garlic to your little heart's content because according to the Journal of Food Science, you can fight a bad case of garlic breath by chewing on an apple. As a matter of fact, munching on an apple will fight off your garlic breath better than popping a mint or chewing a piece of gum will.

Have you ever wondered what the reason is behind why we get garlic breath? It's because garlic contains a compound called allyl methyl sulfide (aka AMS) and it can't be broken down during digestion. Because the compound can't be broken down, it has to be released from our body somehow, and that somehow is through our breath and sweat.
