The Doctors: Fake Products Offering No Protection From Zika
Psychotherapist Mike Dow and dermatologist Dr Sandra Batra joined Dr Travis Stork and Dr Andrew Ordon on The Doctors to take part in a discussion about recent health topics. They first took a look at products being sold as mosquito repellents, that actually aren’t. Gadgets like jewelry and stickers are being sold as protection against Zika, when they likely offer no protection whatsoever. Sales are up 650% from last year! The New York Attorney General’s office issued a cease and desist letter to seven different companies marketing bogus products claiming to offer protection.
Products include vitamin B patches, essential oil stickers, and bug repellent bracelets. Ultrasound devices could actually attract mosquitoes! It’s important to know the truth about what actually works, especially if you’re pregnant or trying to get pregnant.
