Spontaneous human combustion is REAL and burns you ‘like an incendiary bomb’, top scientist claims

Author and biology boffin Professor Brian J Ford says spontaneous human combustion (SHC) burns you like an incendiary bomb, singeing your nerves in mere seconds. “Humans suddenly burst into searing hot flame. Left alone, their bodies burn fiercely until little but hot ash remains, though the hands and legs may remain unscathed,” he told Sun Online. “There are many pain receptors in the skin, so the sensation would be agonising in the extreme – though I’d guess that unconsciousness would follow quickly.”
