If it's broccoli, then you are correct! you win the prize. Want to know what the prize is? A year's supply of broccoli.

Myth?

First, we almost often cannot smell ourself, so that is no reason to call it a myth.

My cats leave some really stinky presents in the litterbox at times. It's from the cat food or cat treats since they don't eat any table scraps.

Beef is chock full of hormones, natural and synthetic. This could be the reason a pregnant woman is more sensitive to the smells. This could also be a the reason that the vegetarian can smell a meat eater. A vegetarian will have very low testosterone levels unless he or she is supplementing zinc as this mineral is primarily supplied by beef, lamb and oysters.

A woman, depending on her cycle, will be more sensitive to hormonal smells (pheromones) during various times in a month.

I have no input on pet smells (and wouldn't they be different from people anyway?) so I'll stick to humans. Eating meat definitely changes a person's odor. Anyone who's had a baby and smelled them (both the baby and the poop) when they are breastfeeding is very very sweet (the perfect food, assimilated and tolerated most excellently) then things get smelly when solid food is added, and things get REALLY SMELLY when meat is added.

I also think it's interesting to note that children almost universally are NON meat-eaters, whether it's by taste, texture, or not wanting to eat the cute animals they just saw at the petting zoo. Eating meat is a LEARNED behavior, kids have to be taught, they don't come by it naturally.

This is very good to know, especially since I have dry eye MD, and so I need zinc for my eyes but don't eat a lot of meat. Zinc is important for the eyes.

Many of you are too young to know this, however during the war in Vietnam, the Viet Cong knew when our troops were nearby because of body odor. We made sure our troops got beef in addition to C rations.

Beef remains in our system longer and this may be the reason why we could develop an odor from it. It is harder to digest as well, which means there will be a longer period from the time of consumption to elimination.

I have also heard that when people pass on-beef will show up and it could have been months ago when you last consumed it. Not sure if this is an authentic finding or not, being that I have never had to inspect the inner beings of a dead person.
