I've been vegetarian for 4 years, eaten organic for at least a year, and raw for 4 months. I've noticed this a few times over the past year or so, but usually very faintly. Lately, it has been REALLY strong. My mom and I are both raw, but my dad and brother eat SAD. Sometimes they both stink. This is probably too much information, but particularly their gas. The best way I can think of to describe the smell is rotting pickles. It's HORRIBLE!! They insist that they can't smell it, and it's not all the time. Anyone know if this is related to something cooked that they eat, or are raw eaters more sensitive to smells like that? I haven't particularly noticed it very often with random people that i walk by in stores, but some people do smell bad/weird to me, even though the scent is fleeting. Just curious if anyone else has had any experience with this, or have any idea what causes the horrendous pickle smell! Talk about gagging!
