America Online is introducing new parental controls, including a screening level appropriate for 13- to 15-year-old children.

"These people lose jobs, they lose friends, they're often very isolated," said Dr. Eileen Treacy of McGill University in Montreal, who led one of two competing research teams that found the flaws in a single gene. Robert L Smith of the Imperial College School of Medicine in London, a member of the other group, told of a woman who divorced her husband because she thought he was not keeping himself clean. When she learned he had the disorder, "she was full of remorse," he said. No cure is known for "fish-odor syndrome," though avoiding certain foods and taking antibiotics can help. The British research team, led by Ian R. Phillips of the University of London, reported its work in the December issue of the journal Nature Genetics. The newly found defects cripple the body's ability to produce an effective version of an enzyme called FM03. The liver needs that enzyme to process a smelly protein called TMA, or trimethylamine, which is produced by bacteria in the gut. When TMA goes unprocessed, it seeps out in a person's breath and perspiration, causing the offensive body odor. People with the disorder are told to avoid eating fish from the sea, eggs, liver and vother foods that contain raw materials for making IMA Whether you're dashing through the snow or winding your way through holiday traffic.
