Take the spoon and remove some plague from the surface of the tongue. Try to remove plaque near the throat.

In healthy humans, the deposits will be clean. However, if there are too many, strange colors and odor, it can be an early sign of problems with your lungs or airways, liver, kidneys, intestines or hormones.

Also, this test can show whether you have bad breath, for which people often are not aware about.
If it is a fruity odor breath, it may indicate ketoacidosis or metabolic disorder, which can cause even diabetes. If you have ammonia –like breath odor, it is possible that you have problems with your kidneys.
However, do not immediately panic – unpleasant breath does not always have to be a sign of some disease. In fact, it is usually due to problems with tonsils, gums and tooth decay.
