    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 posted this 'advice' on several forum pages so that people could know.

    On the Vietnam forum site, there has been a lengthy discussion...

    Also, on the Travel Health forum site, more conversation:

    It seems the DEET 'flavoured' products are bad for your health!!!

    Cheers
