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.

In Struggle,

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 States.

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 you can get some by clicking on this link now. Enter coupon code love14 to get an immediate 5% OFF. (You can use the same discount code for ALL items at the Natural News Store.)

[] 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 repellant.

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. Just click on this link to order yours now. Remember to apply coupon code love14 to claim your discount on this and everything at the Natural News Store.

Stay safe,

Mike Adams, the Health Ranger
