I live only two hours from the epicenter of the Zika outbreak in Brazil where an epidemic of microcephaly is taking place. The situation is not what is being wildly reported. It has little or nothing to do with a mild virus called Zika any more than it has to do with the virus thought responsible for the common cold, though as we shall see scientists have been playing around with genetically modified mosquitoes in Brazil. Dr. Wallace Ransom says, “Only about one in five victims of the Zika virus actually suffers any effects at all.”
The Zika virus is spread to people through aedes aegypti mosquito bites. Once contracted the illness is usually mild with symptoms lasting from several days to a week. The most common symptoms of Zika virus are disease are a fever, rash, joint pain, and conjunctivitis.
Dr. Margaret Chan, director general of the World Health Organization (WHO) said, “A causal link between Zika infection in pregnancy and microcephaly has not, and I must emphasize, has not been established.” Dr. Patricia Pestana Garcez, a neurodevelopment expert who studies microcephaly at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro in Brazil also affirmed, “There is no direct evidence that the virus causes microcephaly.”
The Japan Times says, “Many experts and environmental activists alerted on how some agricultural chemicals — such as paraquat, which has been classified as “highly poisonous” by U.S. regulators — which have been banned or phased out in leading industrialized nations, continue being extensively used in many developing countries, notable Brazil. They are particularly used in Brazil’s northeast, where almost a third of the microcephaly cases have occurred so far. In the last few years, Brazil has become one of the top exporters of orange juice, sugar, coffee, beef, poultry and soybeans. Brazil’s huge production of those items is probably due, in part, to the extensive use of pesticides, many of them highly toxic to humans.”
A report from the Argentine doctors’ organization, Physicians in the Crop-Sprayed Towns, also challenges the theory that the Zika virus epidemic in Brazil is the cause of the increase in the birth defect microcephaly among newborns. Instead of feeding into the standard virus mania this organization is pointing out that in the area where most sick people live, a chemical larvicide that produces malformations in mosquitoes was introduced into the drinking water supply in 2014. This poison, Pyriproxyfen, is used in a State-controlled program aimed at eradicating disease-carrying mosquitoes.
From the doctors at Red Universitaria de Ambiente y Salud (the Red University of Environment and) we have the statement, “A dramatic increase of congenital malformations, especially microcephaly in newborns, was detected and quickly linked to the Zika virus by the Brazilian Ministry of Health. However, they fail to recognize 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.”
A report on the Zika outbreak by the Brazilian doctors’ and public health researchers’ organization Abrasco, also names Pyriproxyfen as a likely cause of the microcephaly. It condemns the strategy of chemical control of Zika-carrying mosquitoes, which it says is contaminating the environment as well as people and is not decreasing the numbers of mosquitoes.
In order to stop the spread of the virus, the Oxford-based Intrexon Corporation, announced the ‘Friendly Aedes aegypti Project’ conducted by the company’s subsidiary Oxitec, which initiating a new mosquito production facility in the northeast of Brazil. What they are doing is introducing sterile genetically engineered mosquitoes into the highly dense mosquito-infested area to curb their populations and prevent the disease from spreading.
Oxitec has been releasing the genetically modified Aedes mosquitoes into the wild in Brazil since 2011 to battle dengue fever. The company produces up two million genetically modified mosquitoes a week in its factory in Campinas, Brazil.
"The Zika virus outbreak currently gripping the Americas could have been sparked by the release of genetically modified mosquitoes in 2012," reports The Mirror. "The insects were engineered by biotechnology experts to combat the spread of dengue fever and other diseases and released into the general population of Brazil in 2012… The Aedes aegypti mosquito sub-species that carries both the Zika virus and dengue was the type targeted with genetically modified mosquitoes."
Interestingly, pregnant women of Brazil were required to get a new vaccine—DTwP (the whole-cell pertussis vaccine). Perhaps there is a problem with this new vaccine and or its toxicity is mixing with other factors. Pregnant Brazilian women were also encouraged to receive the MMR vaccine. Are the DTwP and MMR safe to give during pregnancy? Nobody knows as there have been no randomized studies on whether these vaccines are safe or effective for pregnant women.
To confirm the suspicion that vaccine damages might be lying at the heart of this crisis we have dire reports from mainstream media in Rio de Janeiro stating that one hospital alone in Niterói has attended 16 patients, with the syndrome associated with Zika, have Guillain-Barré, a common paralysis associated with vaccine damages.
A doctor in Recife is telling everyone that there is a connection between microcephaly and the Zika virus and this caused a stampede of panic. However, other doctors in Brazil and authorities in other countries are taking the relationship between Zika virus and microcephaly with great caution. Dr. Plínio Bezerra dos Santos Filho in Brazil warns that the cause of the brain damage could be problems with vaccines. He points out the possibility that dated vaccines where used.
The president of Colombia, Juan Manuel Santos, said on Saturday that there is no evidence that the Zika virus has caused any cases of microcephaly in the country, despite 3177 pregnant women were diagnosed with the virus. Santos also said that probably more than 25,600 Colombians were infected, with three confirmed dead so far.
Of course, no one mentions that fact that most if not all of these women are nutritionally compromised. The incredibly severe nutritional deficiencies in Brazilian population are easy to see because everyone eats white rice, white sugar, white bread, white pasta and white salt, all of which are stripped of magnesium, which is an essential mineral for pregnant women and their fetuses. White processed foods are poison for children and their mothers and are a leading cause of diabetes.
Magnesium controls calcium meaning calcium becomes toxic and accumulates in different tissues. The New England Journal of Medicine presented one case saying, “Ultrasonography performed at 29 weeks of gestation revealed microcephaly with calcifications in the fetal brain and placenta. After the mother requested termination of the pregnancy, a fetal autopsy was performed. Microcephaly (an abnormally small brain) was observed, with almost complete agyria, hydrocephalus, and multifocal dystrophic calcifications in the cortex and subcortical white matter, with associated cortical displacement and mild focal inflammation.”
There is no doubt that magnesium deficiencies cause inflammation and calcification. When multiple toxicities meet up with nutritional deficiencies, we have health disasters so all of the above might be playing a significant role in the outbreak of Microcephaly.
