Forgot all about SHC.
This have always been interesting, and I sure don't have any idea why it happens.
But I have heard several theories about this.
Oh, and you probably need to make a warning about the graphic videos :p

First post here.
Always fascinated me too, remember reading a while back about a guy who investigated cases of HSC and found the only thing that linked the victims was that they all regularly had eaten alot of shredded wheat.
So a wheat based diet might not be a good idea, cant find the original article at the moment, but will have a look.

This was a subject I found very interesting when I first heard about it several years ago and have since forgotten about it until now. Thank you for posting this! I remember hearing that most victims tend to be smokers, live alone, and are generally older/elderly. I always wanted to figure this mystery out, so scary thinking what it would be like if this happened to you!

The Discovery Channel did an excellent show debunking "spontaneous human combustion" and you can find it on YouTube.
There's no possible scientific way that SHC can occur.
