Now this article below is one that almost verifies what I have been trying to tell folks for years, concerning the things that they spray and rub on their skin. I for one along with all my family, have never put it on our skin and never will. It is just common sense that these chemicals are not good for you. Never ceases to amaze me though, of how easily folks are fooled in toady’s world. They just take for granted that what ever the Powers That Be tell them is the truth. Thing is folks, you are the only ones that can look after your own body. You are the one at the helm and the quicker you can take back the reins the better off you will be . Also, take the blinders off and do the research on pretty well everything today. Even from my Blog. I am not pretending to be no expert or no- it- all by no means. All that I am asking of folks, is to sit back, take a look around and keep an open mind, and remember: “Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.” My Opinion Only
Now take a look, fresh off the press:
The active ingredient in many insect repellents, deet, has been found to be toxic to the central nervous system. Researchers say that more investigations are urgently needed to confirm or dismiss any potential neurotoxicity to humans, especially when deet-based repellents are used in combination with other neurotoxic insecticides.
Vincent Corbel from the Institut de Recherche pour le Développement in Montpellier, and Bruno Lapied from the University of Angers, France, led a team of researchers who investigated the mode of action and toxicity of deet (N,N-Diethyl-3-methylbenzamide). Corbel said, “We’ve found that deet is not simply a behavior-modifying chemical but also inhibits the activity of a key central nervous system enzyme, acetycholinesterase, in both insects and mammals”.
Discovered in 1953, deet is still the most common ingredient in insect repellent preparations. It is effective against a broad spectrum of medically important pests, including mosquitoes. Despite its widespread use, controversies remain concerning both the identification of its target sites at the molecular level and its mechanism of action in insects. In a series of experiments, Corbel and his colleagues found that deet inhibits the acetylcholinesterase enzyme – the same mode of action used by organophosphate and carbamate insecticides.
These insecticides are often used in combination with deet, and the researchers also found that deet interacts with carbamate insecticides to increase their toxicity. Corbel concludes, “These findings question the safety of deet, particularly in combination with other chemicals, and they highlight the importance of a multidisciplinary approach to the development of safer insect repellents for use in public health”
Now, if you keep putting these things on your skin, well … plain and simple, you are not thinking clearly and why is that? Simple, you have been putting to many chemicals on and into your body, it’s effecting your mind.
