How to Eat Sulfur for Mosquito Repellent


People are increasingly concerned about the potential negative affect of chemical mosquito repellents on the human body. In a search for non-harmful mosquito repellents numerous alternatives have been developed. There is no hard evidence to support the belief that eating sulfur will repel mosquitoes, but it is rumored that military personnel have practiced eating match heads to repel mosquitoes and various ticks.
