A study undertaken by British experts discovered how to detect impending death.
Arno Wismar of the University of Kent’s School of Psychology conducted an experiment in which subjects smelled putrescine, ammonia, and water.
Despite the fact that they had never experienced it before, the fragrance of the first component was enough to make them anxious.
Putrescine is a naturally occurring organic substance. It is a colorless liquid linked to cadaverine, both of which are created by the breakdown of amino acids.
According to the scientist, when a person dies, his body breaks down, and several smells are emitted that they begin to sense, one of which is putrescine.
Furthermore, as scientists have indicated, the perfume of grass is frequently associated with the “smell of death” in people.
They discovered that a person has an ancient olfactory receptor that wakes up on the eve of death and captures the particular odour. They discovered that this might occur even a year before death.
According to scientists, when the “smell of death” comes, people instinctively begin to change and, without realizing it, bring their death closer.
However, as the researchers promised, the “smell of death” is not a foreshadowing of death, but rather a warning of a harm to the body.
According to the scientists, such a scent helps a person comprehend that there is cause for concern and that he needs to identify the source of the imminent death.
