Re: Onion Body Odor
are you a man or a woman?
I think changes in hormones in women can cause different reactions to everyday foods. Especially after age 50 for men AND women.
Garlic has got to be the worst food for odor...but is easily avoidable. I know many people take Garlique (sp?) as a health supplement, I am not sure why. Do not do this is if you are susceptible to smelling like garlic. I investigated eating powdered garlic on food at one time and realized that I would constantly have bad breath, and skin that emitted that odor. It was not worth it to me.
also, eating onions each day is considered quite healthy except for the person who it makes smell oniony. so that's out...
On the other hand, You should investigate this further. the absence of Some common vitamins and lack of certain minerals or enzymes can cause odd body odors. And all you need to do is start up with the vitamins, minerals and enzyme formulas... And then you can go back to having onions and garlic occasionally.
good luck!! Investigate though, really. It might be hormones.
