As someone who takes public transportation every day, I spend a lot of time thinking about body odor. Can you tell me the chemical or bacterial reason that certain types of funk smell they way they do?

Why does some people's body odor smell like cumin -- or why would cumin smell like body odor? I put a pinch of cumin in all my stews, but it's not an appetizing smell when I wasn't expecting it.
Why do some people smell like canned chicken soup at you? Is it for the same reason?
What about the sweet-sour smell that you get around both unwashed kids and some (not all, okay, I promise I am HAAS) heavily overweight people?
