The “outbreak” of the Zika virus sweeping the Americas has the medical world on alert. And you can imagine the talk around Australian sports organisations, “Is it safe to travel to Brazil for the Olympic Games?”
This was Australia’s DailyMail’s headline on the 22nd of January, “Thousands of babies born with unusually small heads in Brazil linked to terrifying outbreak of mosquito-borne Zika virus.“
The virus can cause a mild rash and a slight fever in adults, but it is being suggested that if a pregnant woman is infected, her child could be born with microcephaly — a devastating birth defect resulting in a shrunken head and brain.
Coming from Africa, I have always been well aware of the devastating effects of malaria (pregnant woman are likely to miscarry), or gross infections like elephantiasis (a parasitic infection caused by round worms and transmitted by infected mosquitoes).
But when I think of birth defects, I immediately recall the thalidomide babies — resulting from a prescription medicine given to pregnant women to reduce morning sickness.
As Wired reported on the 26 January, “Most of Brazil’s microcephaly cases are in the northeast, and it’s unclear why Zika would cause more birth defects there than other places.”
Now Natural News has put out this report, “Zika HOAX exposed by South American doctors: Brain deformations caused by larvicide chemical linked to Monsanto; GM mosquitoes a ‘total failure.” Mike Adams writes:
“A group of doctors from South America are now saying the brain deformations the world is witnessing are caused by the mass fumigation of low-income Brazilian people with a chemical larvicide, not by mosquitoes carrying the Zika virus.
“The doctors from the Red University of Environment and Health (Red Universitaria de Ambiente y Salud) wrote (SOURCE document): …microcephaly in newborns, was detected and quickly linked to the Zika virus by the Brazilian Ministry of Health. However, they fail to recognise that in the area where most sick persons live, a chemical larvicide producing malformations in mosquitoes has been applied for 18 months, and that this poison (pyroproxyfen) is applied by the State on drinking water used by the affected population.
The larvicide sprayed (pyriproxyfen) is manufactured by Sumitomo Chemical, a “strategic partner” or “subsidiary” of Monsanto. And as the report says, “pyriproxyfen is a growth inhibitor of mosquito larvae, which alters the development process from larva to pupa to adult, thus generating malformations in developing mosquitoes and killing or disabling them.”
A chemical being sprayed on the population that generates malformations resulting in… ?
