    Hi, fellow travellers

    I was confronted with a dilemma regarding mosquito repellant. Here, in Australia, DEET is no longer readily available.

    I did a bit of research, and posted on the 'Health' page. Today I discovered some alarming facts about DEET.

    I don't know Bruce, I'm not very alarmed. Sounds like the kind of things that are said about fluoride in drinking water or MSG in food. Perhaps Deet is ok if worn around the brim of a tinfoil hat?
