[OT] mosquitoes and Zika virus

Post  magic_gro on Sat Jan 23, 2016 5:04 pm

Now they are guessing it might even cause paralysis for adults.

http://www.cbsnews.com/news/zika-virus-guillain-barre-syndrome-paralysis/

BTW, two bits in that article confirm my intuition that my onset of allergies and hair-loss shortly after I was given 4 vaccines in the same day and contracted mononucleosis within a week were due to my immune system being too stirred up. Any time I mention this conjecture of mine, people talk down to me as an anti-vaxxer and science-hater...

"Guillain-Barré syndrome is an autoimmune disorder in which the body usually is responding to another infection. It has an immune response that destroys the covering of nerves and interferes with the ability of nerves to function and survive," said Dr. Bruce Hirsch, an infectious diseases specialist at North Shore University Hospital, in Manhasset, New York.

[...]

"It's still a little bit early to know absolutely with scientific proof if it's cause and effect. We've seen Guillain-Barré forever and it can come from many different viral illnesses, or a vaccine," Norman told CBS News. There was an uptick in cases of Guillain-Barré syndrome in people who received the 1976 swine flu vaccine, but the CDC says there is little if any risk from typical seasonal flu vaccines.

Now, I am about to travel to the tropics, and mosquitoes love to bite me. I'm that guy that if there are four people in a room gets bitten like crazy while the other three not even once. Any good advice on how to best repel mosquitoes? Very Happy
