Dr Oz: Zika Virus & Mosquito Repellents
Zika cases in the U.S. keep rising and experts believe the virus will reach as many as 50 major American cities this summer across the south and west, reaching as far north as New York.

It’s the unborn babies that are most at-risk for the most devastating side effect: microcephaly. Dr Oz wanted to find out if the bug sprays you’re buying are actually protecting you.
