Why Do Tonsil Stones Smell So Bad?

If you’ve got tonsil stones, you’ve got bad breath. But most people afflicted with the stones don’t realize why their breath smells so badly.

Maybe a little long, but I think it’s an informative look at tonsil stones and bad breath.

Here’s the YouTube recording at www.youtube.com/watch?v=x4DZCbqWgJc

Interesting abstract over at the NIH about a giant tonsil stone.
