posted on March 28th, 2015 ·


When my wife was pregnant, we have decided to let our first baby to go on breast milk.  Though my wife did not have enough milk for the baby’s need and we have to do mixed feeding with infant milk, I will still think breast feeding should be the first choice for babies.  I have spent some time doing research on the net on the good and bad about breast feeding and here is what I have compiled.

Overweight People May More Likely To Have Bad Breath

posted on May 24th, 2014 ·


Bad breath is often caused by the foods we eat, such as garlic and onions. These aromatic substances are absorbed into our bloodstream and exhaled through the lungs as smelly breath odors. Not forget to mention tobacco too which cause foul mouth odors.
