University of Manchester researchers quizzed a woman "supersmeller" who claimed she could detect if a person has Parkinson's disease by scent. The lady's husband evidently died of Parkinson's disease and realized the smell at the time. She identified 12 out of 12 people with Parkinson's disease. The scientists are now investigating chemicals in sebum (the oil secreted from sebaceous glands of the skin) to determine if they identify a test to diagnosis Parkinson's disease. Smell can be an amazing thing!
