Spontaneous Human Combustion

Spontaneous human combustion or (SHC) is the alleged burning of the persons body without readily apparent, identifiable external source of ignition. The combustion may result in a simple burn and blisters to one’s skin, or complete incineration of the body. The latter is the form most commonly ’recognized” as SHC. There is much speculations and controversy over SHC. Its not a proven natural occurrence , but many theories have attempted to explain SHC ‘s existence and how it could well occur. The two most common explanations offered one be a non spontaneous “wick effect” fire, and the rare discharge called “static flash fires.” In the “wick effect” it be similar to the initial lighting of a candle. That sudden ignition. Where the “static flash” be more like that of the sparks one sees from running one’s feet over carpet or toughing meta. Although the human body mathematically contains enough fat stores in it to have a full body burn happen the body does not seem able to sustain a flame all on its own. We need a source for the burn to occur such as clothing or an accelerant.
