Big Red Gum Reduces Bacteria that Causes Bad Breath

Good news for those of you that worry about bad breath. 
Researchers at the University of Illinois, Chicago have found that Wrigley's popular Big Red cinnamon chewing gum kills bacteria in the mouth that causes halitosis, bad breath.

Dental research was presented at an annual meeting, the International Association for Dental Research. Christine Wu, associate dean and professor of periodontics at the UIC College of Dentistry presented research that found a plant essential oil used by Big Red for flavoring, cinnamic aldehyde effective in killing bacteria that causes bad breath.  Dr. Wu searches for natural antibacterial agents to suppress decay and periodontal disease.

Big Red does not just mask the odor of bad breath, the antimicrobial agents temporarily eliminate the bacteria.
