News & Views on Systemic Body Odor and Halitosis such as trimethylaminuria TMAU. If you have fecal odors or bowel odors it may be metabolic/systemic

someday : 'fecal body odor' debate in Parliament ?

Someday politicians could be having a debate about 'fecal body odor' 'metabolic body odor' 'systemic body odor' 'TMAU' in their parliament / senate / congress etc.

Recently a 'M.E.' debate was held in the UK Parliament.

Here is the UK 'request for debate' stage (to show the interest of the MPs of all parties)

Someday they could be talking about (choose your label) :

It shows that politicians are very aware of M.E. and realise it is ignored.
Perhaps the same politicians who have sympathy with ME would be sympathetic to FBO.

What can be done ?
One could write their local politician about FBO etc.
e.g. MP, Senator, Rep, UK, USA, Canada, anywhere.

Also could look for politicians sympathetic to M.E. etc and write them.

Health systems and researchers are not interested in FBO/TMAU etc.
They need to be forced by politicians to act.

MPs make All Party Parliamentary Groups.
M.E. seems to have a group (2016) ME APPG

FMO3 DNA testing
Update Aug 17 :
Genos is back with it's EXOME test

Note :
Exome/Genome testing may be better option than single gene testing.

See this post : link

Note : Genos Exome Testing.

Exome testing is almost the same price now as single gene testing. Also Genos is consumer friendly, which standard DNA labs are not.

So the blog offer to test solely for FMO3 is almost obsolete, and so no longer offered.

Does Genos fully sequence FMO3 gene ?

At the moment it is not clear, but hoped this will become clear over the next few months

Note : possible 'wild west' way of testing FMO3
Use an ancestry dna site and rummage through the raw data
