Boy I go away for a week and look what happens (I had 134 messages waiting
As a biologist I was worried by the suggestion that anyone should take
a vitimin in excessive dosages as suggested by one correspondent
While Vitamin B1 is watersoluble and in theory should not build
up in the body taking any vitamin in excess is not to be recomended.
In addition if someone were to take a multi-vitamin in excess
(to get high levels of B1) the excess of the fat soluble vitamins
(A D K E) could cause severe illness.
DEET containing repellents are probably the best but please take note
of what Mike Walton said and use them VERY sparingly.
