Oh dear god, pregnant women, step away from the insect repellent now! European researchers have discovered a link between bug spray and penis birth defects in babies. The defect in question is hypospadias, which basically means the opening of the penis ends up on the underside away from the tip. Ooh messy. Anywho, after major studies they think the most likely culprit is N,N-Diethyl-meta-toluamide (it’s friggin DEET OK!) an active ingredient found in most repellents.
