What are these white things – How are they caused?
To be straight forward, the white things are nothing but a giant accumulation of calcium and other metals on your tonsils. But why are they being accumulated?
For clear understanding, Let us consider this story..
John was a young guy. One night he went to a party and ate a heavy dinner. Some food particles came straight and got stuck on his tonsils. As soon as he reached home, without brushing, he went to sleep. The food particles slowly started hardening. Though he brushed the next day, the food particles did not come out. Days passed by.. Slowly the food particles started decomposing and breaking down. All the bacteria and other foreign particles started accumulating on the same tonsils. This accumulation continued for days together and started hardening. Then one fine day, John could see a strange white thing on his tonsil.
