Why does not eating give you bad breath?

i would have thought that it would be the exact opposite because normally food makes your breath stink like whatever you ate….what if you didnt eat but you kept your mouth moisturized by drinking water the whole day…would your breath still end up stinking?

Answer #1

Its not that not eating gives you bad breath, its the germs that already live in your mouth that cause bad breath. Drinking water all day should help, but won’t clear it up all the way. You should really make sure when you’re bushing your teeth to brush your tongue because your tongue acts like a sponge in attracting germs :O :)
