How to Say, 'You Stink'

A new service by Philadelphia’s Center for Breath Disorders allows people to send an anonymous and tactful message to people who have bad breath. The free letter (which can be sent via e-mail c/o or by U.S. mail) explains that bad breath is a common problem. The message then directs the user to a website selling a $40 fresh-breath system created by Philly dentist Jon L. Richter, who founded the Center for Breath Disorders in 1993. Read one recent plea for help: “Please, please, please, for the good of humanity and my own nostrils, please tell this person that their breath is kickin’ like Bruce Lee.”
