I've actually held two live hangouts about tonsil stones that focus on what causes t-stones and why they smell so badly. In a previous post I embedded one of the videos and made do with a quick text link to the second one. Thought I should come back and add the second video so it's as easy to view as the first video right here on Weebly. Thanks for visiting and here's the recording:
If you still have your tonsils, you may be one of millions of Americans who have tonsil stones. Sometimes as large as a grain of rice, these white or off-white stones are accumulations of dead bacteria and white blood cells that congregate around a fibrin capsule built by streptococcus bacteria during a bout of childhood tonsillitis.

Are people stepping back from you when you talk to them? Check your breath. Perhaps, they just can’t tolerate how it smells. It’s easy to know if you have foul breath. You just need to blow on a handkerchief or on your palm and smell it. If it has foul odor, then you better act and stop bad breath immediately!
Bad breath typically falls into two categories: situational bad breath and chronic breath. The first, situational bad breath, is usually the result of something we eat - onions or garlic are good examples. A good breath mint will usually take care of situational bad breath. Chronic bad breath is different. Here the cause is bacteria that live on and beneath the surface of the tongue, where they produce volatile organic compounds that smell like rotten eggs or old socks.
