Anonymous asked 3 years ago
Hi, I’m 20 years old and I’ve been experiencing problems with my body smell. Like you said in your TED talk there are many things that influence the body smell and it all comes down to those bacteria. Now I take a shower every day with soap and I scrub well but often it doesn’t help. I recon that it might be my diet because fr instance I don’t like fruit and so don’t eat it very much, also I don’t eat much of a variety of food. Second thing is that I smoke cigarettes and a joint once in a while, I think this might have something to do with it as well. Now my question is am I right ? And what can you recommend me to do ? And would the bacteria transplantation be a solution? Thank you in advance You can contact me on 0493635711 Or email at: tdeherdt@gmail.com (Ps I do speak dutch and suppose you do to)

Thank you for sharing your story. These things can all influence the development of body odor. Simply eating more healthy and reducing smoking can alleviate the problem. But it all boils down to the underarm microbiome, and it is not so easy to shift towards a better microbiome. The underarm microbiome is usually pretty stable over time. We are working hard on finding solutions, and I marked down your data for future reference. Will keep you updated on new solutions. Best, Chris
