Also manufacturers of mouthwash. They basically invented halitosis to sell that shit.
Do I need a new computer at home, fuck no. But Dell are doing their big alienware with a solid state drive and now I want to clear my credit card just to buy one. Furthermore, I didn't want a smart phone, but I own one.
What the media sells is fear. Fear that you won't fit in, that you're missing out, that you won't be happy without it. It's horseshit.

Well he's partly right of course.
The desire to fit socially or increase their social status wasn't invented by the media and advertisers, it goes back a long way before magazines, billboards and tv - all they do is take advantage of this instinct and manipluate so that we think it's their products that we need to up our social standing.

3. Not sure about you, but when I'm talking to someone and their breath stinks, I want to vacate the premises. The smell mimicks that of shit because of bacteria in your mouth. Mouth wash reduces the amount of bacteria in your mouth.
Those who care for their teeth and have a relatively clean mouth have 1,000 to 100,000 bacteria living on each tooth surface. Those that do not have a clean mouth have between 100 million and 1 billion bacteria on each tooth.
