Spontaneous Human Combustion

February 18, 2012

Spontaneous  Human Combustion occurs when a person suddenly bursts into flames from a chemical reaction within the human body, apparently without being ignited by an external heat source or open flame whatsoever.

The first known account of spontaneous human combustion came from the Danish ana-tomist Thomas Bartholin in 1663, who described how a woman in Paris "went up in ashes and smoke" while she was sleeping in her bed.

The hundreds of spontaneous human combustion accounts since that time have followed a similar pattern: The victim's, is almost completely consumed, usually inside his or her home.

Can a Human body infact ignite like a match and are we orselves just a ticking time bomb ready to explode..
