I think you're right and the study makes sense. In AIT I was in a control group testing agents that would prevent reactions to the poison (fill in the blank) flora. In training we were run through whatever they had. I didn't have any reaction where guys with preventive products did. Looking back, I was between 5 and 9 years old playing outdoors in the bayous of SE Texas. I don't remember any problems but my mom still tells stories of all the crap I came home with. One in particular I wish she would stop telling! Something to do with where she found a tick.
