Your tongue reveals a lot about your health. If your tongue has a nice pink color and looks healthy, then chances are your oral health, as well as your general gut health, is fairly good. If it's coated in white material or otherwise looks “off”, on the other hand, then your gastrointestinal microbiota is probably in a somewhat sorry state and you probably have bad breath.

When you’re confronted with new information about a subject such as nutrition or medicine, always ask yourself whether the information is evolutionarily sound. If it has no basis in evolutionary science or doesn’t conform to established Darwinian principles, then you would probably be wise to discard it and move on to something else.
