Submission + - Spontaneous human combustion explained (

An anonymous reader writes: Human spontaneous combustion is real and scientifically explainable and not super-natural. More than that it is not a product of alcoholism, the most commonly accepted scientific theory to date, but of ketosis, which results from many different conditions, including diabetes. These are the conclusions of Brian J. Ford, a well known, in the UK, independent researcher into microbiology and are based on his attempts to burn pig flesh marinated in both alcohol and acetone (produced by ketosis sufferers).
