The Chemical Debate Continues
As you research your lice predicament, you may find the conflicting opinions by "experts" to be confusing. An article in the New York Times featuring Linda Strand and Lice Be Gone debates several of the issues. One expert who works with drug companies to develop new treatments suggests that if one treatment does not work, try another one. Decide for yourself how much pesticide you want to put on your child's head. Be sure to research the side effects and caution labels carefully prior to use. The same article presents evolving views on the "no-nit policy." The problem with nits is that they can hatch at any time. Lice Be Gone's proven non-toxic, chemical-free lice treatment and nit removal techniques will eliminate your lice problem quickly and help you steer clear of both debates.
