By the way, some Cuban doctors have suggested that people take Vitamin B on a daily basis because it appears that mosquitoes are repelled by the chemicals released in our bodies by Vitamin B. They say that this should work for most people as a deterrent and not as a complete solution.
This was recommend to my wife and I last week... since we are traveling to Cuba in a couple of days.
I'll try to find out more on what the Cubans are planning to combat the Zika virus-- no matter how innocuous it may be, you know they gotta national plan.

Dear Mike Adams and Natural News,
While your mosquito repellent looks great and should be effective, your
justification for it is not.
You write as though you're accepting the pharm industry's propaganda
about Zika -- that it is an actual disease; that it is transmitted by
mosquitoes and now sex; that it is actually fierce in Latin America due
to the Zika virus; that there have been 4,000 cases of microcephaly in
Brazil (they've narrowed the total down now to 5 percent of what had
previously been reported!), and more.
I know that Natural News doesn't believe that. You could have simply
presented the mosquito repellent itself as a means to avoiding dangerous
chemicals like DEET.
But in an effort to hype your product, you insanely feel free to spread
fear, panic and intentionally false information -- information that you
yourself believe to be nonsense -- to make a buck. Which only goes to
discredit other claims you make on your website.

Natural News readers,
By now, I'm sure you've heard about the Zika virus -- a disease
transmitted by mosquitoes, which is now spreading with unbridled ferocity
in Latin America, with cases beginning to appear in the United
That's why I'm reminding you today of a chemical-free bug
repellent that's safe for your skin and really works to discourage
mosquitoes and other insects from biting you. It's called Health Ranger's
Bugs Away Spray, and

Although the common symptoms of Zika (fever, rash, joint pain, and
conjunctivitis) are usually mild, and death from the disease is very
rare, it has been linked to horrific birth defects in babies of mothers
who were infected with the virus while pregnant. At least 4,000 babies in
Brazil have been born with brain damage, and Zika now appears to be
sexually transmittable, with one such case confirmed in Dallas.
According to the Centers for Disease Control, "Zika virus will
continue to spread and it will be difficult to determine how the virus
will spread over time." Of course, the CDC is cozy with the biotech
and pesticide industries, which will no doubt try to exploit this public
health problem by calling for more chemical fumigation and vaccine
research. However, even the CDC admits that "The best way to prevent
diseases spread by mosquitoes is to protect yourself and your family from
mosquito bites." And it recommends a simple solution: insect
But you need to be careful which insect repellant you choose. It would
crazy to slather your body with the toxic chemicals used in most
commercial repellents, most of which contain the pesticide DEET.
That's why Health Ranger's Bugs Away Spray is 100% natural. It's
made from certified organic witch hazel, citronella, eucalyptus,
cadarwood, catnip, lemongrass, lavender, tea tree, litsea and patchouli.
It contains zero artificial fragrance or synthetic chemicals, and can be
used as often as needed.
It's safe for you and safe for the environment as well. Everything we put
on our skin gets washed downstream, back into the environment, so
replacing toxic chemicals with natural plant-based ingredients just makes
good sense for us all.
And it really works. The Aedes mosquito, which carries the Zika virus, is
on the U.S. mainland right now. To protect yourself and your family,
stock up on Health Ranger's Bugs Away Spray, available now in single
bottles or discounted multi-packs.
