Is DEET bad for you?
The review is one of several that researchers have done over the past 20 years, all finding that DEET is generally safe. In fact, there's no direct evidence using DEET normally harms the nervous system. Bad reactions to DEET, when applied to the skin in bug sprays, are extremely rare, but not non-existent.
Since Odomos does not contain deadly chemicals which kills or knocks down mosquitoes, it is one of the safest mosquito repellants available. Odomos has been certified by reputed institutes on its efficacy & safety for usage. Odomos Mosquito Repellent Cream has also been tested to be safe even for babies.
- FACT: The level of DEET in repellent only determines how long the protection lasts. For example, OFF!® FamilyCare Insect Repellent IV contains 7% DEET and repels mosquitoes for up to 2 hours, while OFF!® Deep Woods® Sportsmen Insect Repellent I contains 98.25% DEET and repels mosquitoes for up to 10 hours.
- Two types of mosquito sprays have been registered with the EPA and are considered safe for pregnant and breastfeeding women to use: DEET: The most effective kind of insect repellent contains DEET. Picaridin: This is an alternative form of insect repellent that is safe to use during pregnancy.
- Farts are not "a soup of proteins". So, since it is true that part of a fart is composed by CO2 and they produce a warm cloud around you, I would say YES, they do attract female mosquitoes. But so do you. So release your gasses, or stop to breath at all.
