MEBO Metabolic Malodor Survey (international) for Dr Hazen click here
click to Read more/less

survey for ANYONE who identifies with METABOLIC MALODOR

begun : Oct20
end : no ending for now

Regular readers will know that Dr Stan Hazen et al at Cleveland Clinic are developing a TMA-blocker pill, as they proposed in a 2011 paper that TMAO is a factor in CVD. Recently Dr Hazen and colleagues contacted MEBO as they have always thought they could also help with TMAU. This survey is to give them an idea of the 'state of the community'. It is a "version 1". They may not even look (though they have access permission), but it could be useful to give them an overview of the community

MEBO had a zoom call with Dr Hazen and his team in October. Another zoom call is planned when they have time

This is a GOOGLE FORMS survey

MEBO Research’s commitment to transparency Part 2

As noted in the Part 1 post in this blog dated May 16, 2011, I have been working on MEBO’s annual returns in the US and the UK, and have finally achieved this task to its completion.

All are invited to see MEBO Research's detailed financial reports,
since the inception of the US company,
MEBO’s US Charity bank and PayPal accounts
and MEBO’s UK PayPal Report of this past fiscal year.

As you will note on these reports, MEBO has never been in the red in any of these accounts; and even though the income has been very limited, each dollar/pound has been carefully managed and guarded.

Due to my recent personal hospitalization and persistently not feeling well, I have had to struggled to muster up energy to be actively involved in our multiple community projects, such as,
  1. To post in the Body Odor Support forum,
  2. To attempt to answer some of the emails I receive (can’t get to them all),
  3. To attempt answer some of the phone calls I receive from the community (can’t seem to get to them all),
  4. To stay involved in the projects members from the MEBO community are carrying out to promote raising awareness and public relations in a few countries, and with the creation of a new petition for our international community to utilize to support this effort,
  5. Working diligently to face the challenges involved in expanding TMAU testing to all sufferers throughout world with all the complications international programs inherently brings,
  6. To assist MEBO volunteers in posting and maintaining MEBO’s Blogs and Website,
  7. And what is most exciting to me, to finally begin work with a very coherent team of MEBO volunteers as we have initiated MEBO’s fundraising/grant seeking campaign targeting private and public corporations and government agencies at an international level. Much more information will soon be forthcoming about this campaign in this blog and in MEBO’s website.

IT MUST BE NOTED THAT since the first post written on this blog on October 4, 2008, followed by all the programs MEBO has supported and spearheaded to the present time, not one person or private organization has ever been paid one single U.S. cent/UK pence/European Euro, for any MEBO related services.
This includes all sufferers or non-sufferers in our community who have participated in any of MEBO’s projects, including but not limited to,
  1. Participants of the raising awareness campaign,
  2. Participants of the self-funded small study projects/testing programs with Biolab Medical Unit, SmartNutrition, and Eliapharma Services Inc., (paid by each individual person testing, and these labs/experts are not part of MEBO in any way,
  3. The attorney and law students at Florida International University College of Law, who volunteered their services pro-bono to raise MEBO to a 501(c)(3) Public Charity Status in the US,
  4. MEBO’s accountant in England,
  5. MEBO’s financial advisor in the US,
  6. MEBO’s technical consultant in the US,
  7. MEBO’s Board Members, including myself.
  8. Experts from multiple countries who have participated in providing MEBO with quality scientific information to publish in our English and Spanish blogs and website and to discuss in the conference part of our U.S. annual meetup, and many more projects.

I reiterate, I AM PROUD TO SAY THAT NOT ONE PERSON HAS RECEIVED MONETARY COMPENSATION OR ANY OTHER COMPENSATION FOR THEIR VOLUNTEER WORK. It is humbling to see the inspiration and determination of our vast international community to become proactive in pursuing testing, funding for serious research into all body odor conditions, and in changing the world in which we live to provide for ourselves equal opportunity to live our lives in pursuit of happiness. It is the palpable commitment to action of our international community that inspires me and gives me the strength to continue moving forward in assisting the volunteers achieve our goals, even when my body fails me over and over again.

I warmly thank each and every one of you for being a part of this community.
