the yellow chunks may be food particles that become trapped in the folds of your tonsils and bacteria starts to eat away at the and they turn yellow and smell very bad.  I press on my tonsils (not for people who have a reactive gag reflex) to empty out this "stuff". It gives me bad breath and I believe it is due to post nasel drip and large tonsils.  My doctor was no help at all!!!!
