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

BDJ article DIMETHYLSULPHIDEMIA: top 10 most read in May2013

We are so very proud to say that the Scientific Adviser to MEBO Research who published his paper in the British Dental Journals (BDJ),

Dimethylsulphidemia: the significance of dimethyl sulphide in extra-oral, blood borne halitosis.

has received a congratulatory email from the British Dental Journal today saying,

...your BDJ paper "Dimethylsulphidemia: the significance of dimethyl sulphide in extra-oral, blood borne halitosis," was one of the top ten most viewed 2013 BDJ articles in May.

How great is that! And it will have been written only two months ago on June 12th. This is indeed an honor for MEBO Research to have such an expert who has given countless hours of his valuable time and pro-bono work to support MEBO’s Mission. This work of his has contributed greatly to our Raising Awareness Campaign (scroll down on this link to see all posts).

The British Dental Journal audience consists of “dentists, dental undergraduates, members of the dental team, hospital, community, academic and general practitioners,” and as one would expect, a significant amount have read the following discussion in this paper, which, as noted in the abstract,
  • Outlines the prevalence of halitosis in the general population, its classification and psychosocial implications.
  • Reports that about 10% of genuine halitosis cases are caused by extra-oral phenomena, giving extra-oral halitosis an estimated prevalence of about 0.5-3% in the general population.
  • Reviews the causes of extra-oral halitosis and how to differentiate these from intra-oral halitosis.

In addition, some of the readers of this paper in the month of May 2013 were from our community. When I say our community, I mean any and all sufferers from all forums, blogs, Facebook pages, websites, and partnership sites like RareConnect, for example, whoever suffer from any BB/BO condition, are family members of, or are simply interested in a greater understanding of breath and body odor conditions. ALL OF US BELONG TO THE SAME COMMUNITY!


This is who we are – one voice in our Raising Awareness Campaign, whether we are writing articles on breath and/or body odor conditions or reading articles written by our experts! Whether we suffer from halitosis, body odor stemming from IBS and/or other similar digestive tract disorders, or TMAU, Bromhidrosis, or a combination of these, we become a significant and effective force when we present ourselves, and are perceived as, a unite cohesive group – one community in our Raising Awareness Campaign. No matter what forum or site we call home!

Our most profound thanks go to this
very talented and beloved author.
