All the things you said are right but I dont agree in two things.First of all how do you know thousands are suffering?We dont even know what we are suffering from!I can only see a dozen of people posting in this forum and I have never met someone in my area who has a similar problem.
Second,what good will it be if it is made known to the world through the media?Do you need more social alienation,because I dont and I have had enough of it.
What will the reporter say?"New mysterious disease x was discovered that makes people smell like shit!"So what?If the doctors do nothing what good will it be for the people to know?
What we need is that the doctors listen to us seriously and like true scientists sit down to the table and discuss.They must collect data,do research,and and find out what this is.Its not psychological problem although the triger may be.MX3 has done a step further by collecting data,I dont know if it is for himself or a doctor told him.
What I have to say is that if you go to a doctor and he takes your word seriously(not thinking its all in your head),please tell us what he might suspect as the cause of the problem.Even his suspicion may worth a lot.
