If a person eats matches does that help keep ticks away?


A co-worker told me that they eat matches, and that the sulfur tips on them helps keep ticks off of him. I was just wondering if anybody out there knew if this was true, or if it's just a load of bologna?

    Sounds like combating Dracula! I was nearly eaten alive by horseflies in a shaded rivermouth in Austria. Apparently they were attracted to my fair skin - probably seemed to them like manna! The sulphur would turn your skin yellow, wouldn't it?
