One in 10 people are highly attractive to mosquitoes.
Mosquitoes can smell their dinner from an impressive distance of up to 50 meters.
Scientists do know that genetics account for a whopping 85% of our susceptibility to mosquito bites. They've also identified certain elements of our body chemistry that, when found in excess on the skin's surface, make mosquitoes swarm closer.
WHAT MAKE MOSQUITOES LOVE US?
People with high concentrations of steroids or cholesterol on their skin surface attract mosquitoes.
Mosquitoes also target people who produce excess amounts of certain acids, such as uric acid.
Larger people tend to give off more carbon dioxide, which is why mosquitoes typically prefer munching on adults to small children. Pregnant women are also at increased risk, as they produce a greater-than-normal amount of exhaled carbon dioxide.
Movement and heat also attract mosquitoes.
So does the lactic acid pouring from your sweat glands.

Papaya leaves - Cure For Dengue Fever
For your information
I would like to share this interesting discovery from a classmate's
son who has just recovered from dengue fever. Apparently, his son was
in the critical stage at the SJMC ICU when his platelet count dropped
to 15 after blood transfusion also.
His father was so worried that he sought another friend's
recommendation and his son was saved. He confessed to me that he give
his son raw juice of the papaya leaves. From a platelet count as low
as 45 after blood transfusion, it jumped to 135 after drinking the raw
papaya leaf juice. Even the doctors and nurses were surprised. After
the second day he was discharged. So he asked me to pass this good
Accordingly it is raw papaya leaves 2 pcs just clean and pound and
squeeze the juice thro cloth filter. You will only get one tablespoon
per leaf. So, use two tablespoons per serving once a day. No need to
boil or cook or rinse with hot water, it will lose its strength. Only
the leafy part has to be taken, no stem or sap. It is very bitter and
you have to swallow it. But it works wonders!!!!
Papaya Juice - Cure for Dengue
You may have heard this elsewhere, but if not, I am glad to inform
you that papaya juice is a natural cure for dengue fever. As dengue
fever is rampant now, I think it's good to share this with all.
A friend of mine had dengue last year. It was a very serious
situation for her as her platelet count had dropped to 28,000 after 3
days in hospital and water had started to fill in her lungs. She had
difficulty in breathing. She was only 32-years old. Doctor said
there's no cure for dengue. We just have to wait for her body immune
system to build up resistance against dengue and fight its own battle.
She already had 2 blood transfusions and all of us were praying very
hard as her platelet continued to drop since the first day she was
Fortunately her mother-in-law heard that papaya juice would help to
reduce the fever and got some papaya leaves, pounded them and squeezed
the juice out for her. The next day, her platelet count started to
increase, her fever subsided. She was given papaya juice regularly and
she recovered after 3 days!!! Amazing but true.
Papaya juice has a cooling effect thus, it helps to reduce the heat
in one's body. I found that its also good when one is having sore throat.
