Default bad body odor

my housemate uses splenda excessively...two bags or more every week...probably a cup on a bowl of cereal two or three times a day, then two bags of jerky in addition to frozen chicken wings maybe 30 or 40 at a time.

He stinks really bad, sort of leaves a smell when he leaves the room. the smell is sickenly sweet and makes me naseous (sp).

Has anyone ever been around anyone with really bad body odor, perhaps it is his gax, buit it is really bad.

I seriously doubt that your roommate is using a cup of Splenda on a bowl of cereal. That is 8ounces or 240 grams.
A large pouch (which I think you mean "bag" of splenda is 55.5 grams).

Is available in packages containing the sweetness equivalent of one and two pound boxes of sugar and a Baker's Bag containing the sweetness equivalent to 5 lbs of sugar.

And I doubt he is even using a cup of SUGAR on a bowl of cereal.

Splenda in the little paper packets:

24 packets of SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener provide the sweetness of one cup of sugar.
from http://www.splenda.com/page.jhtml?id...ts/packets.inc

and this one:

is even less than believable.

The cup of sugar comment seems extreme to me, also - and pretty much impossible. Anyway, this is what I found and as I only Google'd it I cannot verify how accurate it is.

Disease: Odor
-------- ----
Typhoid: Freshly baked brown bread
Diphtheria: Sweet
Smallpox: Stench (a foul odor)
Yellow fever: Butcher shop
Scurvy: Putrid (a rotten odor)
Phenylketonuria: Musty; sweaty locker room
Metabolic disorders Maple syrup
Diabetic ketosis: Fruity aroma; decomposing apples"

University of Washington: The Lost Medical Art of Smelling

Tuberculosis produces a body odor that smells like stale beer.
Vitamin C deficiency, called scurvy, causes a putrid odor.
Burns have a musty, grape-like odor.
Ketoacidosis, which may result from diabetes, smells like old apples.
Liver failure smells like rotten eggs.
Kidney failure has the smell of ammonia."

My brother used to make hot tea, and the bottom of his cup had a good solid inch of sugar, which he then covered with an inch of honey. I always joked, "You gonna have tea with your sugar?"

It makes me gag. I don't use sugar -ever- in anything. I make my own cereal (granola and pure maple syrup baked). Sugar grosses me out, I try to sweeten things different ways but I can't use plain sugar no matter the type (sugar, splenda, whatever).

I will admit I eat a lot of crystallized ginger when I am nauseous. I don't know why but it helps.

ummm, I don't have body odor but I sure don't use splenda either...could be the Grape Seed Extract I've been taking for decades, it cleans and thins the blood, could be doing a great job there....
