The rotting meat smell that arises when someone is about to lose a limb due to gangrene (or infection) is absolutely terrible, not to mention tragic for the patient too.

If you’ve ever worked in a hospital, you’ve probably come in contact with an infection caused by this bacteria in one form or another, and smelled the nasty results.
