  • Do you have bad BO?

  • No.

  • Come on man, we all saw that.

  • You stink.

  • But, luckily, we're here to help.

  • We've done some research and found the best ways, scientifically, to fight body odor.

  • So what exactly causes bad BO?

  • For starters, gender, nature, and chronic health issues can all affect your body odor.

  • For example, people with diabetes may actually have a fruity smelling body odor.

  • And people with a liver or kidney disease may actually have more of a bleach type smell.

  • Watch what you eat. Life-style and diet may play a big role in how you smell.

  • For instance, garlic, spices and alcohol can all have negatively effect your body odor.

  • Fatty foods, red meat and being overweight can also impact your body odor.

  • Certain anti-depressants can even cause a change in your body odor.

  • But what if you're healthy and don't drink and still have BO?

  • Well, at that point you may wanna try Botox.

  • That's right, Botox.

  • A 2003 study where 16 healthy volunteers were injected with Botox under the arm, yielded some positive results.

  • In fact, after only seven days patients body odor either decreased or improved.

  • Not into needles?

  • You might want to try shaving.

  • Regularly shaving your armpits can help prevent the accumulation of bacteria, which can help prevent sweat and odor.

  • - Really? - Of course.

  • Antiperspirants and deodorants are the preferred methods.

  • That's right. In fact, dermatologist David Pariser recommends an antiperspirant with at least 12% Aluminum Chloride or 20% Aluminum zirconium.

  • And for best results, use an antiperspirant at night and deodorant in the morning.

  • I've heard all those chemicals can potentially lead to cancer.

  • Thought you might mention that.

  • Actually a majority of experts, including the Director of Medical Content for the American Cancer Society agreed that all of those findings are inaccurate.

  • That's right, fake news.

  • So fear not, there are plenty of solutions to help you battle your BO.

  • And get back to whatever...that is.
