Mosquito repellant advice

Posted by BruceMoon on 6/6/2009 at 05:55

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!!!
