Dealing with Body Odor

On this earth each and every organism has a unique Body Odor. In case of human beings these odors are originated because of the presence of naturally occurring bacteria present on the various skin secretions like sweat etc. Therefore if the skin is not cleaned thoroughly, then the bacteria regenerates on the sweat, which cause a sticky substance that entangles dirt. This is what causes body odor thus leading to a very pungent smell with the acronym of B.O!
