Have you heard the scare tactics and warnings regrading Chikungunya, Dengue, Equine Encephalitis, Malaria, West Nile, Yellow Fever and Zika disease transmitted by mosquitoes? Did you realize that while these diseases are transmitted by mosquitoes the dangerous chemical insecticides, pesticides and repellents being used for mosquitoes may be even more damaging and dangerous to human health? Articles, research and stories are regularly describing the numerous diseases, health hazards and risks transmitted by mosquitoes. Unfortunately what they usually do not tell you is the wide range of health hazards and health issues caused or compounded by the use of the harmful chemicals and synthetic pesticides. Many environmental scientists feel we may be doing more harm to the environment and our health than the actual risk of being affected by the disease. When you look at the consequences of using chemical toxins it seems we are making some bad, mad and sad choices by attempting to poison the environment to poison mosquitoes instead of promoting natural pesticides, predators and procedures. Researchers and scientists are learning more every day about natural procedures and products that effectively eliminate mosquitoes. There is an abundance of information that shows the toxic chemicals negatively affect  our quality of  health and life. Today we will focus on the benefits of avoiding harmful chemicals and synthetic compounds and choosing natural procedures and products as alternatives. This post will offer more affordable, renewable and sustainable models for our over all health and well being.

Problems: Dangerous Chemicals

Pesticide companies are driven by profits and Return On Investment (ROI) and do not put the environment or your health first. They promote their toxic products which are destructive, harmful and unsustainable rather than offering natural and safer alternatives. Many researchers and scientists have discovered that the toxic chemicals and synthetic compounds used by pesticide companies are harming us and the inhabitants of our planet. While many companies and people are lead to believe these toxic products are beneficial, necessary and safe, we should do our homework and be questioning the insanity of poisoning the people, plants and planet to kill mosquitoes.

It is well documented that a wide range of toxic chemicals and synthetic compounds pollute the planet as it damages our biosphere, bodies and brains. Evidence indicates they can lead to accelerating aging, disease, hormonal issues, immune system dysfunction, sickness, weakness and even death. Chemicals used by agriculture, insecticide and pesticide companies are causing birth defects, death, harm and mutations to babies, bees, beneficial organisms, birds and butterflies. All chemicals and synthetic compounds have serious consequences to people, plants and the planet over time. By buying and using their harmful synthetic compounds we destroy Mother Nature, keep them in business and poison our selves. Does that seem like an insane habit?

Mosquito on ArmPeople are quickly learning that using chemicals and synthetic compounds to kill or repel mosquitoes is self sabotage, slow suicide and stupid. As more people search for better and brighter alternatives we find amazing benefits by using DIY Natural Bug Treatments. We are being harmed by the misuse and over use of extremely toxic chemicals to kill or repel mosquitoes. Significant evidence indicates that these toxic chemicals and synthetic compounds are major source of health hazards, poisons and toxins contributing to the large increase in death, deformities, disabilities and disease we are experiencing. The flood of health challenges since companies began unleashing a tsunami of harmful chemicals and synthetic compounds as insecticides and pesticides. We are being poisoned from exposure to these harmful chemicals and synthetic compounds in our air, food, soil and water.

As mentioned in previous blog posts advertising, government agencies, marketing and public relations organizations produce an abundance of disinformation, misinformation and outright lies designed to prevent us from learning the truth about these harmful chemicals and synthetic compounds that are serious health hazards. It is therefore essential to seek the truth to protect our happiness and health. My years of research for better health, nutrition and wellness practices and protocols has lead me to some great ideas, insights and inspiration for preventing and protecting against synthetic chemical health hazards. My research has directed me to finding great resources and role models to help improve our health in a holistic way long term. Essential oils, plants and creative technology and thinking are providing some of the best ideas and natural products to kill and repel mosquitoes and other nuisance insects.
