I have that problem too. The smell comes from mildew growing on the sides of the drain pipe above the waterline in the trap. It's rather dirty in there below the drain plug, and you never really clean it. When you turn on the water, it disturbs the mildew and releases bad smells. The water trap in the u-turn under the sink keeps sewer smells out but this is before that. The solution is to grab a bottle of bathroom mildew remover and spray it heavily around the drain plug to saturate all sides of the drain pipe. Try this once every few months to keep your bathroom smelling fresh. Don't forget the shower and bathtub drains aswell, and kitchen disposal too if you have a problem there.

Yes, Defenitely. Not Brushing after eating causes bacteria to build up and directly causes bad breath and rotten teeth.

Depends on where you smell it. If it's your breath, it can be a sign of diabetes. More info, please.

It's mostly hydrogen sulfide gas, released from the decay of sulfur containing proteins.

It was called the potato blight. It can affect mass amounts of potatoes, and tomatoes too. It causes them to grow with soft mushy looking spots on them. Basically they would look and smell rotten.

It is the chemical hydrogen sulfide (H2S), which is produced by the breakdown of proteins containing the amino acid cysteine.
