Is there any diet which would repel mosquitoes away from me?

The only article I found on the internet recommends eating:

  • 1-2 prongs of garlic daily
  • lemonade
  • cauliflowers and broccoli
  • legumes


But this article says they "may be helpful" and it would be good reading opinion from somebody who is sure.

We ask that all question posters here attempt to search for an answer to their own question and explicitly indicate what research they've already done, what they learned, and what is still confusing or unknown to them. Our goal is not to simply be an answer site, but rather a site that promotes self-learning with some expert help along the way :). Please take a moment to edit your post with this additional detail, and it will likely be received more positively by our community. Thanks! $\endgroup$ – theforestecologist Jun 24 at 19:50
  • $\begingroup$ I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because this is like a health advice/home remedy. Although it is not a personal medical question and there is no issue of safety, questions like these will generate opinion based answers. If this question can be reworded along the lines of "whether diet affects our attractiveness to mosquitoes" it may be considered on-topic. However, some background and research effort should be shown. $\endgroup$ – WYSIWYG Jun 26 at 11:54
