People all over the U.S. have been buying DEET for quite some time in order to get rid from the attack of mosquitoes. It is a common notion that DEET can be applied safely without any health risk. But Natural News reports that quite the contrary to the common belief DEET can be extremely harmful, especially when applied to the skin. It gets absorbed through the skin and finds its way to the blood stream and eventually to the whole body, ultimately resulting in seizures and at times, even death. It is more harmful for children and doctors recommend that DEET should not be applied more than once a day, or even EVER, on a child’s body. More is reported in:

Though the human body is falling prey to the toxins present in DEET, mosquitoes, for which it was originally designed to fight, are reported to have developed resistance to the chemical. A group of researchers led by Dr. James Logan from London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine have found that the Aedes aegypti mosquitoes that are responsible for spreading dengue fever and yellow fever have developed immunity against mosquito repellants like DEET. As a result, DEET is becoming less and less effective against mosquitoes. Take a detailed look at the story at: http://www.naturalnews.com/039376_mosquitoes_DEET_resistance.html#ixzz2MmGEPfCX
Are you planning to visit the beach and take a sunbath? Then you must have also planned to buy the newest sunscreen that promises to protect your skin from the ultraviolet rays. Wait, think twice before you buy such a cream. Natural News reveals that most sunscreen lotions are capable of breeding skin cancer, thus giving rise to the disease that they are designed to protect against. A number of recent researches have uncovered this ironic truth. Though there is a law that requires all products that contain cancer causing ingredients to bear a special mark, the FDA is never keen on enforcing the law on these creams, thus compromising the health of the general public. http://www.naturalnews.com/023317_skin_chemicals_products.html
Don’t block out the Vitamin D and block in the toxins, embrace Vitamin D (sunshine) and eat organic foods and hemp seed oil to protect your skin!
Hemp seed oil, pressed from the seeds of the Cannabis sativa plant, has been named nature’s perfect food due to its balanced concentrations of omega fatty acids. Hemp used to be consumed worldwide, as it was one of the first cultivated and consumed crops. There is a misconception that hemp contains THC, the principal psychoactive constituent of the cannabis plant. Needless to say, this is false. Although relativity new to the Western Hemisphere, hemp seed oil is now widely available in health-food stores.
Balance is key
