thanks for responding. i'm black. i was trying to see if ethnicity also plays any part for this condition but no connection so far. it seems more likely that this is an infection that we are all battling. the source of the infection may be in different parts of our body where the bad bacteria chooses to accumulate.
for those of us that believe the source of our odor to be in the stomach, it may very well be that our sphincter is loose leading to the oxygenation of the stomach and encouraging the infection there. for other people, the infection may be on their body.
