What do you eat? Are you a carnivore, vegetarian, or vegan? Is one really better than the other? Each group, of course, will claim its superiority and state facts about health or the environment.

It’s dreadful to suffer from bad breath – you feel like your very words are offensive to those around you, and it lowers your self-confidence when you think that people don’t want to hear you because of it.

Human bodies are not designed to drink the milk from other animal species.
