I have been following a Paleo diet this year. I am trying to get enough carbs through vegetables, and I am not overdoing the Protein or fats. My wife complains that I have this strange odor that is hard to explain, somewhat resembles... (more)

I'm asking this on behalf of my friend, whose 8 year old daughter has a body odor problem. It's primarily her feet that stink all the time, but she will also sometimes have a funk all over. She's only 8, so I'm thinking that once she hits puberty... (more)
