Does anyone know why people have body odor?

Because one person does put deodorant who's a boy and smells terrible, I was walking past a man who looks about 15 or 16 years old, I'm 13, and he smells really bad, why does everyone always have BO?

What your body doesn't need, eventually makes its way out. Ex: For 3 days, you eat an apple and drink water. A banana and a glass of orange juice. Snack on raisins. Brush your teeth. Go to track practice. Sweat and drink more water. Or.. Same 3 day time span, you have a muffin and coffee. A burritos and coke. Snack on Cheetos. Go to track practice. Sweat and drink another coke. Your body isn't going to use all the junk in the latter diet. It wants to get rid of that trashy stuff. After it is done trying to figure out how many fat cells have been deposited, you are going to sweat it out any pore in your body. The body will obviously get rid of it by peeing and pooping too. This is why some people smell. Other reasons are due to health issues they cannot help or way too much Polo cologne. Try to take both into consideration and do walk on the other side of the street.. for your own nose's sake :)

Bacteria, hormones, poor diet, and some illnesses can all cause body odor.

You have BO too, so I wouldn't be complaining! People should use more deodorant.
