TMAU odors solved with activated charcoal

Trimethylaminuria, which from this point on for convenience sake I will abbreviate using its common abbreviation (TMAU), is also known as Fish Malodor Syndrome. It is a “rare” disorder which is caused by a mutated gene. It makes the person who has TMAU’s body unable to process a substance called choline which is something that other people’s bodies can process. This results in the person effected being perfectly healthy and normal EXCEPT that they will always smell horrible to other people. A person with TMAU may have horrible odors emanating from various parts of their body or from ALL of their body. They may also have halitosis (bad breath). Thus they cannot comfortably go out anywhere including school or work and are not able to be independent and go wherever they want to.
