President Obama has requested $1.8 billion of U.S. taxpayer funds to “fight Zika virus” globally. This follows a World Health Organization declaration that Zika is a serious pandemic, leading to congenital malformations, especially newborns with small brain size.
The panic fed by WHO and Ministry of Health officials in Brazil is already terrifying pregnant women across South America. The “pandemic” story now has media momentum, with newspapers such as the London Daily Mail publishing lead features.
However, skeptics of the “connection” between the Zika virus and microcephaly in newborns are pointing to other causes — which implicate government-sponsored toxins used to treat water supplies in the most-affected areas. The official effort was intended to inhibit mosquito development with a chemical in water.
Brazilian officials downplay this challenge as simplistic and uneducated, pointing to a World Health Organization report declaring the suspected chemical, pyriproxyfen, as safe. A safety evaluation by the WHO says, in part:
“The 2001 JMPR assessed the safety of pyriproxyfen as a mosquito larvicide in potable water and concluded that intake at the target concentration for control would not present unacceptable risks.”
Here’s one such rebuttal from Dr. Medardo Avila Vazquez, a pediatrician and neonatologist in Argentina. He’s active in a group of doctors struggling to show how the outbreaks of serious diseases in South America often overlay the most intense regions of agricultural pesticide applications.
Dr. Medardo Avila’s main points:
One unnerving side of the Zika panic is the degree of official manipulation involved — and the use of panic to extort billions of dollars into the “health” agencies which are supposedly guarding the global public. For a penetrating series of reports on the shakedown within this particular crisis, click through the series of blog posts by longtime analytical journalist Jon Rappoport. You can start at this link, which opens to a Feb. 4 report. As of Feb. 9, Jon points out that scientists were urging another “solution” to Zika: Kill all mosquitos (which carry the virus) with “gene editing” which would eradicate the species. But the presumption that Zika and microcephaly are linked is highly suspect. His latest analysis, as of Feb. 15, is at this link.
Brazil’s Ministry of Health data indicate 4,783 suspected cases of microcephaly of record as of Jan. 30, 2016. Only 3,670 cases had been medically investigated closely enough to confirm a diagnosis. Of those 3,670, only 404 were confirmed as some type of alteration in the nervous system of babies, indcluding microcephaly. And finally, of these 404 nerve and brain disorders, only 17 had any relationship with the Zika virus. Yet, the World Health Organization is sounding alarms that Zika virus is the root cause of microcephaly. What WHO doesn’t emphasize is that 98% of the microcephaly cases occurred in Northeastern Brazil, where the government has been spraying pyroproxyfen for the past 18 months.
Jon Rappoport has a series of updates before and after the Feb. 4 summary. You can click on the “Older posts” or the “Newer posts” button on Jon’s blog page to see his earlier and most current reports. Jon’s chain of facts and opinion will not reassure you about the cohesion and sanity of officialdom when it comes to evaluating pandemics.
The World Health Organization has showed no significant response to an Argentine medical group, “The National Congress of Physicians in the Crop-Sprayed Towns” as they’ve reported soaring rates of serious toxin-linked diseases in regions of intensive glyphosate usage. Here’s a summary of what these physicians are saying, posted on GM Watch.
Fanning a panic over a supposedly virus-induced “epidemic” can be a pretext for huge public spending on immunizations or other medical intervention. Ebola, or swine flu are recent examples. But what’s really worrisome is that our Centers for Disease Control or Health, Education and Welfare see no urgency in the parabolic rise in the U.S. rates of more than a dozen chronic diseases, from heart disease to cancer to celiac to autism.
The officially induced panic over Zika, an organism known since the 1940s which has caused little serious human illness, could also provide a pretext for massive funding of “genome editing” to eradicate the mosquito species involved, as Jon Rappoport points out in his report today. On Feb. 9, James Clapper, U.S. director of National Intelligence, added genome editing to the list of “weapons of mass destruction and proliferation.” Because of gene transfer between organisms, there’s no guarantee that a sterility gene imposed on mosquitos by the CRISPR technique wouldn’t transfer to other species.
There’s an even broader issue on human health in America which the “officials” are virtually ignoring.
Most of these debilitating, costly and chronic diseases show a parabolic increase in the rates per thousand population. Autism in children, shown in the chart below, is just one example. Incidence of this toxemia-induced tragedy has a 99% correlation with the rising and pervasive presence of glyphosate in America’s food, water and mother’s milk. The data aren’t secret. The chart below, courtesy of a presentation by Dr. Don Huber, indicates that one out of two American children will be diagnosed with autism by the year 2025. What this means is a largely dysfunctional society, with a large segment of our population struggling to care for the disabled.
Where is there a federal-government sense of urgency to track down the reasons for this very genuine pandemic?
