6 Causes of Bad Body Odor

Already diligent in bathing and using deodorant, but the body still emits an unpleasant odor? In fact, the cause of body odor is not just because of excessive sweating, you know. Some people even still emit a bad odor despite spending all day in an air-conditioned room. Why is that? Here are some causes of body odor that you need to know.

In the medical world, body odor (BB) is also known as bromhidrosis. Although body odor often appears when the body is sweating a lot. But the real cause of body odor is bacteria. Human sweat is basically odorless. Body odor arises when bacteria in the body meet with sweat and convert sweat to acid. Bacteria that often cause body odor are anaerobic. This bacterium can multiply through sweat as its medium. Well, body odor appears as a result of the breakdown of keratin protein. By bacteria on the surface of your skin.

Apart from bacteria, there are several other factors that cause a person more at risk of having body odor:

1. Overweight or Obesity

People who are overweight or obese usually tend to have body odor. This is because fat people have many hidden pores in their body folds. The area is usually warm, steamy, and dark so that the bacteria that causes body odor can develop rapidly there. As a result, an unpleasant odor appears.

2. Infection

Infected skin can also cause body odor. Bacteria found in infected skin can produce sweaty berurea. Sweat is what ultimately causes unpleasant odors to appear. So, if there is a part of your skin that has an infection it should be addressed. Immediately so that microorganisms bacteria do not grow.

3. Foods consumed

Food and drinks that you consume can also affect the scent of your body, you know. The nutrients contained in food are good for health. However, certain foods also contain substances that can cause body odor.

Shallots, garlic, and curry are the most popular causes of body odor because they contain alisin. Broccoli, cabbage, brussels, and other vegetables. That is included in the cruciferous family, it can also make the sweat produced by the body smell bad. That is due to the sulfur and sulfide content contained in it.

4. Disease

Sometimes, the appearance of excessive sweating can also be a sign of certain diseases, one of them like diabetes. People with high levels of diabetes usually have difficulty controlling blood sugar levels. So to replace glucose, the body uses fat as a substitute fuel. Well, this process will produce acidic compounds in considerable amounts. In addition to diabetes, other diseases that can also cause BB include kidney failure. Low blood sugar levels, liver, and metabolic dysfunction.

5. Consumption of Certain Medicines

Dirty and Smelly, Fill in the Wallet Who Knew

Families who work as farmers are invisible less special to their children and most of them in general. Much more classy. And proud if parents can wear official uniforms bearing the logo of government institutions. Military, health, and others. Destiny was never announced at the beginning. That is why the beauty of the art of life is always full of mysteries. And is the secret of Allah Almighty.

Early on, a little offensive about the profession. There is absolutely no intention to suggest or stunt a person’s profession. However, I want to give a bit of happiness from the profession of a farmer who is identically dirty. Shoulder, and low educated.

Life of a Peasant Child

Born as a farmer child always feels synonymous with distress and concern. That’s what the authors feel since childhood.

On Sundays off, parents take them to the “matun” field (pulling grass). When school holidays arrive when it is time for “mbudak” (rice fragrant out of the stem) rice is ordered to wait for the rice to be eaten by birds. The hand holds the slingshot and the pocket of its contents is stone. And after the rice harvest is asked to help to dry. And to wait for the rice to be more or less four days. Not free and little to come work.

That is only a part of the little farmer’s work that the writer illustrates. Even though there are many other jobs. Such as “stretching” (planting corn/green beans/soybeans) in the fields/fields. Suctioning water to flow through the fields. To waiting for seeds at night so they are not eaten by rats.

Feeling confined and not as free as children in general. Again playing in the fields. Vacation in the fields then takes a bath in the river. Different and not as beautiful as when imagining a holiday of friends who are the same age whose parents work as employees. Departing on the schedule, in the morning can warming vehicles in the yard. Every month the salary has been transferred and when he has a pension fund.

Every week he goes to the shopping center. Toys on water rides that have slides and were to rinse. Even when on vacation at home. His hands do not hold slingshot with stones but hold PS sticks. And a collection of the latest games.

A striking difference that is still recorded clearly if the flashback to the back.

Before vs Now

Previously, farmers were still not familiar with the technology and civilization of the times. Hoe in the fields using a hoe for days. Matun (pulling grass) using your hands is also for days. Harvesting rice using ani-ani and or can also be dos (a traditional rice harvester that is nailed and rotated using a bicycle pedal).

At present hoeing to prepare new planting season land does not need to spend days using a hoe. There is a tractor that has only been able to flatten for 30 minutes. And the results are ready to be planted.

Matun, eliminating grass or weeds no longer requires a lot of people and using hands to clean the grass. Ally and ally plus (grass pesticides) are now available. Its use is also very easy. Pour the pesticide into the spray ladder and spray in the morning. In a period of five hours, the grass will wither by itself until it dies on the spot.

When the rice harvest season arrives, no need to use ani-ani ordos. There is already a modern rice harvester, a blower. This tool is the result of innovation from a workshop that uses diesel engines as its main power. And recently there has been a combined harvester (rice harvester). Produced by heavy equipment companies to answer the challenges of technological advances in agriculture.

It is these facilities which are increasingly here that make farmers. Especially the writer’s parents, feel helped and eager because they can cut time and ease the workload. So that it can develop and build life infrastructures. One of them is education.

Build Education from Agriculture

Parents who work as farmers, although experience and insight are not as extensive as those who work as non-farmers. Alhamdulillah, awareness in education is a top priority.

Still remember very well since childhood, parents especially fathers have the principle of “Tame Jina”. Meaning siji children, siji scholars mean every one child, one scholar. If you look at the condition of the first principle of the father. And his ideas are quite imposing and as if it were a patent. It was impossible to materialize.

If talking about mathematical calculations is definitely impossible. The income from farming only comes when the harvest arrives. Not to mention the production costs that have been incurred. And used again to prepare for the new planting period (MTB). Plus to support their daily needs (caring for three children) and care for farming.

Social Experiments Amid the Complex Indonesian Political Feel

It is undeniable that the atmosphere leading up to the election like today is getting hotter and hotter. Indonesian society seems to be divided into two camps, one is Jokowi’s camp, the other is Prabowo’s camp. Plus the presence of social media that feels increasingly adds “hot” political nuances in Indonesia. Just because it’s invisible, people don’t hesitate to mock one another, insult, and knock each other down.

The tension is even more depressing, not limited to gimmick or confession in cyberspace. Many people have to lose friends or family. And fight just because of different political choices. Not too long ago there was news that the body had to be moved. Only because the owner of the tomb had a different political choice!

A Group of Students Making Social Experiment Video

In the midst of the complicated nuances of politics in Indonesia at this time. A group of MA Al-Muddatsiriyah students, Jakarta, made a social experiment that made the heart cool. What was their viral experiment like?

A group of students who are members of the MA Al-Muddatsiriyah journalism is making a video of social experiments. Related to differences in political choices which are currently hot and hot

Students at MA Al-Muddatsiriyah (MA MDSR) created a social experiment video titled “My Handshake If Our Political Choices Are Different”. In the 10-minute video, 3 students stand on the pedestrian bridge, each carrying a board with different writing. One of the writings: “I support candidate pair 01, but if you support candidate pair 02 please shake my hand”. Another opposite and the board in the middle contains the signatures of those who shake their hands.

Their video conducting a social experiment caught the attention of citizens. And apparently unexpectedly, many also shook their hands.

Behind the barbaric attitude of people when it comes to political choices. Apparently there are still many who long for peace on this motherland. As evidenced by the many people who shake the hands of the students.

At the beginning of the video, there was indeed no one who was willing to shake hands. Maybe at the thought “what are these boys doing?”, And they just walked away. But after there was 1 person who started, the others became follow-up. This video is viral and widely discussed in cyberspace.

What did We get From Thos Video?

Yes because after all, we are standing on the same ground, struggling amid the same problems. So, what is the point of being hostile just because of different political choices??

Apart from the fact that there were no advantages. Splitting up so that some camps actually made us as a nation look weak in the eyes of the world. Fear that such a situation will, in fact, be exploited by other countries for personal gain. Instead, we must remain compact and united. Whatever the situation and however diverse we are. Do not just because of different political choices. We become like sparking conflict. It is even sadder if the families fight because of the different choices. Even before the election chaos. They just got along well together.

Guys, different choices are not your sin. Want to choose 01 or 02 is fine. Of course, each of you has your own considerations. No need to look for other people’s choice of loopholes. Whoever the leader is, let us pray together so that Indonesia can become better in the future. ‘If Indonesia is more prosperous and victorious. We are also the ones who feel it.
