ABC's 20/20 Gives Buzz Away Highest Mark!
In June 1999, ABC's top-rated news magazine 20/20 rated Quantum Health's Buzz Away the #1 most effective plant-based insect repellent. Sylvia Chase reported that Buzz Away, Avon Bug Guard, and Blocker were the repellents tested. The results were:
1) Volunteers thrust their arms into cages packed with 300 blood-thirsty female mosquitoes. The two volunteers were protected by each of three plant-based repellents.
The results follow:
2) Petrie dishes with mosquito bait were sprayed with the repellents.
Buzz Away -- 75% effective
Avon Bug Guard - 66% effective
Blocker - 33% effective
"Once again, independent tests prove that Buzz Away is the best plant-based insect repellent available," says Quantum Founder David Shaw. "20/20, Good Housekeeping, and University of Guelph studies all prove that Buzz Away works."
"We in the Natural Foods Industry have a responsibility to our customers," says Shaw. "We want to educate consumers about products that are safe, family-friendly, and effective. Let's work together to promote products that really work and that will improve the image of our industry. Buzz Away is such a product."
