    Brazil Ends Monsanto Linked Pesticide Use to Fight Zika After It’s Exposed as Cause of Birth Defects

    By Matt Agorist on February 16, 2016



    On Sunday, the Free Thought Project reported on the recent information released by the Physicians in the Crop-Sprayed Towns (PCST), who revealed that the Brazilian government’s assertion that microcephaly was caused by the Zika virus was not substantial. PCST exposed a popular larvacide pyriproxyfen to be the actual suspect.

    The chemical, pyriproxyfen, was added to the state of Pernambuco’s drinking-water reservoirs in 2014, by the Brazilian Ministry of Health, in an effort to stop the proliferation of the Zika-carrying Aedes aegypti mosquito.

    The report by PCST revealed that the pesticide, sold under the commercial name SumiLarv, is manufactured by Sumitomo Chemical, a Japanese subsidiary of Monsanto.
    Quote “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. It acts as an insect juvenile hormone or juvenoid, and has the effect of inhibiting the development of adult insect characteristics (for example, wings and mature external genitalia) and reproductive development. It is an endocrine disruptor and is teratogenic (causes birth defects).

    “Malformations detected in thousands of children from pregnant women living in areas where the Brazilian state added pyriproxyfen to drinking water is not a coincidence, even though the Ministry of Health places a direct blame on Zika virus for this damage, while trying to ignore its responsibility and ruling out the hypothesis of direct and cumulative chemical damage caused by years of endocrine and immunological disruption of the affected population,” according to the report by Physicians in the Crop-Sprayed Towns.
    In a move that would never happen in America, the Brazilian government actually listened to the group of doctors and suspended the use of pyriproxyfen, pending further study.

    In a communique, the state government said that “the suspension was communicated to the 19 Regional Health Coordinating Authorities, which in turn will inform the respective Municipal Monitoring services” in all cities in the state, according to Fox News Latino.

    Up until now, Brazilian scientists have been attributing the increase in microcephaly to the Zika virus. However, on Sunday, Rio Grande do Sul Health Secretary Joao Gabbardo said that, despite the fact that a relationship between the larvicide and microcephaly has not been proven, the “suspicion” that there may be a linkage had led the organizations to decide to “suspend” the use of the chemical.

    “We cannot run that risk,” Gabbardo said.

    Of course, this news is being met with backlash by those who have advocated adding this larvicide to the water supply.

    “That is a rumor lacking logic and sense. It has no basis. (The larvicide) is approved by (the National Sanitary Monitoring Agency) and is used worldwide. Pyriproxyfen is recognized by all regulatory agencies in the whole world,” Health Minister Marcelo Castro told reporters Sunday.

    Also, the Monsanto affiliate, Sumitomo Chemical also claimed that “there is no scientific basis for such a claim,” adding that the product has been approved by the World Health Organization since 2004 and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency since 2001.

    The fact the WHO has officially gone on record and stated that microcephaly is not linked directly to the Zika virus has been of little consequence to the Health Secretary. Also of little consequence to the Health Secretary, is that there haven’t been any cases of microcephaly attributed to the Zika virus in past outbreaks.

    According to the report by PCST:
    Quote Previous Zika epidemics did not cause birth defects in newborns, despite infecting 75% of the population in those countries. Also, in other countries such as Colombia there are no records of microcephaly; however, there are plenty of Zika cases.
    The caution and proactive response by the Brazilian government are noteworthy and should serve as an example to officials in the United States who continue to expose citizens to a myriad of toxic chemicals banned in countries across the planet.

    1991 Government Document Confirms TDAP Vaccine Causes Microcephaly

    Posted by Sean Adl-Tabatabai on February 23, 2016



    Research published in The National Center for Biotechnology Information reveals that the U.S. government knew as early as 1991 that the Tdap vaccine causes microcephaly.

    Why then are the government so keen to blame microcephaly on the recent zika virus outbreak when for at least 70 years no known cases of microcephaly had been reported as a result of the virus?

    According to the study, entitled Adverse Effects of Pertussis and Rubella Vaccines: A Report of the Committee to Review the Adverse Consequences of Pertussis and Rubella Vaccines:

    Among symptomatic cases, presumed causes are frequently grouped according to the timing of the suspected insult as occurring pre-, peri-, or postnatally. Prenatal factors are thought to account for 20 to 30 percent of cases. This category includes cerebral anomalies, chromosomal disorders, neurocutaneous syndromes such as tuberous sclerosis, inherited metabolic disorders, intrauterine infections, family history of seizures, and microcephaly (Bobele and Bodensteiner, 1990; Kurokawa et al., 1980; Ohtahara, 1984; Riikonen and Donner, 1979).

    Among the earliest case reports suggesting a possible link between infantile spasms and pertussis immunization are those of Baird and Borofsky (1957). They described 24 children who had hypsarrhythmia and infantile myoclonic seizures and whose development prior to the onset of spasms was apparently normal. Nine cases of infantile spasms were reported to have occurred between 1 and 5 days after DPT vaccination.

    Three of these nine children also had a history of perinatal complications that the authors thought might have been related to a risk of infantile spasms. The authors also stated, on the basis of a review of published EEG tracings, that hypsarrhythmia was present in two of the affected children described by Byers and Moll (1948). Since these early case reports, additional cases of infantile spasms in association with pertussis immunization have been described in the literature (Fukuyama et al., 1977; Millichap, 1987; Portoian-Shuhaiber and Al Rashied, 1986). The time intervals reported between vaccination and the onset of infantile spasms have been from minutes to weeks (Melchior, 1971).

    Evidence from Studies in Humans
    One of the largest case series of infantile spasms following pertussis immunization was published by Millichap (1987). Six children ranging in age from 2 to 9 months were included. The time interval from immunization to the onset of spasms was from 6.5 hours to 5 days, and first seizures were reported to have occurred in conjunction with the first, second, or third doses of pertussis vaccine.

    Except for one case who had experienced myoclonic seizures since birth, no mention was made of the children having seizures prior to immunization. In reviewing the etiology and treatment of infantile spasms, Millichap (1987) listed the postulated mechanisms for pertussis-related seizures as (1) a direct neurotoxic effect, (2) an immediate immune reaction, (3) delayed cellular hypersensitivity reaction, and (4) vaccine-induced activation of a latent neurotropic virus infection.

    Wow Hervé, thank you for this post.

    My son suffered spasms back in 2008 after a vaccine which is obligatory in Spain. You feel so impotent when you see your child suffer and cannot help him. The same vaccine was reported to cause autism from the Spanish Society of Autism. It is a triple vaccine for measles, parotiditis and rubella. Luckily the spasms seized.

    I have tried to avoid some vaccines but it is impossible... I got a letter from the social services giving me an "ultimatum" with all kind of menaces.

    Zika virus the new health care Boogeyman, now being blamed for vaccine injuries and Guillain-Barre Syndrome

    Thursday, March 03, 2016 by: David Gutierrez, staff writer
    Tags: Zika virus, Guillain-Barre Syndrome, flu vaccine



    (NaturalNews) The arrival of the Zika virus in the Americas, and concern over its
    possible link to birth defects, have stirred up a storm of panic in the media. But
    the truth is that the virus and its effects on the human body are poorly studied,
    and very little is known about it for certain.

    Given that knowledge gap, we can expect alarmist reports over the next few months
    to blame any and every cryptic health condition on the virus. Most recently, health
    experts have raised concern about a possible connection between the Zika virus and
    a paralytic nervous disorder known as Guillain-Barre Syndrome.

    According to the FDA product insert, Guillain-Barre Syndrome is a known potential side
    effect of flu vaccination.

    Rappaport sums it all up even more--Noam Chomsky in 93 delivered the secret

    Quote In 1993, Noam Chomsky delivered the Zika secret
    March 4, 2016
    by Jon Rappoport


    Dear reader, I’ve been telling you the truth all along. Now we go even deeper.

    More often than we suppose, a piece of forgotten history illuminates the present moment like a stroke of lightning above the landscape.

    By Jon Rappoport

    In December of 1993, Noam Chomsky published an article in Z Magazine titled, “The Clinton Vision.” Chomsky was actually discussing US foreign policy in the Western hemisphere since 1945. He focused on Brazil.

    He spoke of the US takeover of that country, and how under guise of spreading democracy and the free market, the real operation was control of land, resources, and labor—ruled by a corrupt Brazilian oligarchy in turn managed by a US government-corporate nexus.

    Workers in the northeastern area of Brazil were subjugated to a life of misery, the most obvious sign of which was extreme, generation-to-generation malnutrition.

    Read this 1993 Chomsky quote carefully. In the midst of his analysis, a small section will jump out and grab you by the throat, given your knowledge of what has been happening in Brazil lately, during the so-called “Zika crisis”:

    “Brazil is far and away the most important country in Latin America, firmly under US control since 1945, when it became a ‘testing area for modern scientific methods of industrial development’ applied by US experts…It is a country with enormous resources that should be the ‘Colossus of the South,’ ranking alongside the ‘Colossus of the North,’ as predicted early in the century. It has had no foreign enemies, and benefited not only from careful US tutelage but also from substantial investment. It therefore shows with great clarity just what the US can achieve in ‘enlarging the free community of market democracies’ under conditions that are near ideal.

    “The successes are real enough. Brazil has enjoyed a very high growth rate, which conferred enormous wealth on everyone except its population — apart from the top few percent, who live at the standards of the wealthiest Westerners. It is a sharply two-tiered society. Much of the population live at a level reminiscent of Central Africa…the UN Report on Human Development ranked this rich and privileged country in 80th place, alongside of Albania and Paraguay. In the northeast, Brazilian medical researchers describe a new subspecies: ‘pygmies,’ with 40% [actually 60%] the brain capacity of humans, thanks to severe malnutrition in a region with fertile lands, owned by large plantations that produce export crops in accord with the doctrines preached by their expert advisers. Hundreds of thousands of children die of starvation every year in this success story, which also wins world prizes for child slavery and murder of street children — in some cases for export of organs for transplant, according to respected Brazilian sources.”

    The source Chomsky is using for his medical assessment of children’s brain capacity is Isabel Vincent (Life a struggle for Pygmy family, Globe & Mail Toronto, December 17, 1991, p. A15.) Vincent wrote: “A diet consisting mainly of manioc flour, beans and rice has affected [northeastern Brazilian laborers’] mental development to the point that they have difficulty remembering or concentrating. Fully 30.7 per cent of children in the Northeast are born malnourished, according to Unicef and the Brazilian Ministry of Health. . . Brazilian medical experts have known of undernourishment in the country’s poorest region for more than two decades, but they confirmed only recently the existence of a much more startling problem — a severe lack of protein in their diet that is producing a population of Brazilian Pygmies known by some medical researchers in Brazil as homens nanicos. Their height at adulthood is far less than the average height recording by the World Health Organization and their brain capacity is 40 per cent less than average [emphasis added]. . . . In the poorest states of the Northeast, such as Alagoas and Piaui, homens nanicos comprise about 30 per cent of the population. . . Much of the Northeast comprises fertile farm land that is being taken up by large plantations for the production of cash crops such as sugar cane.” [Note: Chomsky and Vincent omit the add-on effects of a full range of toxic pesticides, some of which are banned in other countries because they are too poisonous.]

    Children born with 40% less brain capacity. Does this sound like microcephaly, the “new outbreak” which has received so much publicity, and which has been attributed to the Zika virus?

    Yes, it sounds very much like it. Microcephaly=children born with smaller heads and brain impairment. For decades in northeastern Brazil: children born with 40% less brain capacity who never grow to normal body size.

    Are you following me? I hope so.

    There is nothing new about what is happening in Brazil. Various types of brain damage in children have been endemic for a very long time.

    Researchers there, and at the World Health Organization, are fully aware of this. At the moment, they’re using the cover story of “Zika virus” to obscure the truth. To obscure the causes. To obscure the criminals. It’s business as usual.

    In previous articles, I’ve demonstrated that Zika has never been proved to cause microcephaly or any other kind of neurological damage. In fact, researchers so far have managed to prove (without admitting it) that Zika is not the cause.

    As the literature clearly states, any insult to the developing fetal brain can cause microcephaly. Looking for one cause is non-science.

    There is no recent sudden appearance of birth defects in Brazil.

    Zika does not cause birth defects.

    It’s a mask to conceal the truth.

    This truth can be traced in many places. In parts of Africa, for example, grinding poverty, malnutrition and starvation, contaminated water supplies, lack of basic sanitation, overcrowding, toxic medical treatments, stolen land, and pesticides combine to twist and destroy human life.

    The men in charge, locally and far away, have purposely maintained the population in this state—and whenever they have felt the need to divert attention from the truth, they’ve concocted a medical cover story: a virus, a sudden “outbreak”—such as Zika.

    “It’s out of our control. A tragedy. The best doctors are working to find a cure…”

    On and on it goes.

    As I’ve written many times, the best cover story is a medical story. It appears to be neutral, scientific, apolitical, non-partisan. And the best medical cover story of all is a virus.

    People salute it and tremble in its promoted presence.

    The virus is the fairy-tale of the devil in the Church of Biological Mysticism.

    So now you know. This piece of World Health Organization hyper-fiction about Zika, about a new outbreak of microcephaly, about something never seen before, caused by a virus (that has never done harm to humans since its discovery in 1947)…it’s all a pernicious ruse to hide the facts on the ground.

    Without knowing it, of course, Chomsky, 23 years ago, shot a gaping hole in the current “Zika crisis.”
    Each breath a gift...

    From Harry Rhodes FB page
    Quote By Harry Rhodes.
    Zika Deception is about to be rolled out!! Their big pharma lie?
    BBC quote the Science Magazine `Zika virus causes brain damage`.
    BBC announce `DNA Vaccine ready in months`! Eh? DNA Vaccine?

    Firstly there is not a shred of evidence that proves that the Zika virus causes brain damage especially in the fetus or children. Its all hearsay!
    This means categorically that a Zika vaccine is NOT necessary.
    My conclusion - `They` are moving forward with a false flag into the Western world to force all to have a DNA vaccine. As we know it has already been suggested that this vaccine will have numerous population control technologies hidden within including enzymes that make changes to DNA and induce cancer. Plus the infamous `nano-bots. However what exactly is a DNA vaccine? Below is a diagram how it works. Recently many Doctors who discovered the cancer inducing enzymes in vaccines have been found dead. nagalase enzyme protein is INTENTIONALLY being added to the population via immunizations.
    Nagalase STOPS vitamin D from binding to the Gc protein. This completely strips a human being’s body of it’s natural ability to kill cancer cells. Nagalase is a protein that’s also created by all cancer cells!!! Murder has been suspected. The new Zika vaccine WILL also be a DNA restructuring vaccine.
    Additionally, Dr Angela Rocha ( Brazil hospital), here interviewed by David Shukman, a Science editor for BBC News wants the vaccine released WITHOUT conclusive proof as she `believes` it is the cause of the brain damage and deformities! She here below is only showing the symptoms but not the cause.
    No one has investigated the suspected links to the prior vaccines taken by mothers or indeed the pesticides where much evidence has been released as the true causes of these terrible side effects. Below are weird changes and alterations of DNA structure. Could this possibly be the same technology found within the vaccines currently deployed and `sold` as a preventative but in fact is the real culprit?

    Is the Zika virus an offshoot of a secret U.S. Army 'entomological warfare' program?

    By David on 24 March 2016 GMT Corporate Crime Medical/Health






    ‘Could the Zika virus ‘epidemic’ be part of a secret U.S. Army program created
    to develop weaponized mosquitoes for ‘entomological warfare’ purposes?

    According to The Smoking Gun, the Army has long been interested in such methods
    of waging war against its enemies, and some now suspect that the Zika virus could
    be a test run of its entomological warfare program:

    The March 1981 report on ‘entomological warfare’ was prepared following research at
    the Dugway Proving Ground, the sprawling Utah facility where the Army tests biological
    and chemical weapons systems.’

    Zika fake science back in the news; con artists at work
    April 16 by Jon Rappoport

    Their media androids dutifully record a “breakthrough”

    by Jon Rappoport

    April 16, 2016https://jonrappoport.wordpress.com/2016/04/16/zika-fake-science-back-in-the-news-con-artists-at-work/

    Quote Is it about science or money?

    US health agencies want more than the $600 million they’ve allotted to the “war against Zika.” They want $1.9 billion. Why not? They always want more money.

    To make their case, the CDC has pushed out a new Zika study in the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM): “Zika Virus and Birth Defects — Reviewing the Evidence for Causality”. (For the CDC’s conference call with the android press, click here).

    Before commenting on that study, let’s recall a devastating statement the NEJM’s former editor, Marcia Angell, issued in 2009, after she had headed up that non-science machine for 20 years:

    “It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of The New England Journal of Medicine.”

    As criticisms of fake science go, this one, from an elite insider, ranks near the top of the list. It is a direct accusation of widespread fraud. Otherwise known as lying, cheating, massaging data, hiding data, and so on.

    In other words, the NEJM has been publishing studies and reports that, regardless of their convincing language, are “cooked” to appear true when they most definitely weren’t.

    Therefore, right up front, a new Zika study published in the NEJM is highly suspect, to say the very least. There is no reason to accept its data, methods, or findings. Except perhaps as an article of religious faith. But medical journals aren’t supposed to be religious publications, the last time I looked.

    The new NEJM study on Zika aims to eliminate doubt that the Zika virus causes microcephaly.

    Until now, that doubt was widespread. Even the World Health Organization was making careful statements: “…although no definite causal link has been established between Zika and microcephaly (babies born with smaller heads and brain damage), we believe there is a connection…” That sort of thing.

    The new NEJM study is supposed to erase, once and for all, that “maybe.”

    But it doesn’t. It’s not even close. Because when you wade through the rather dense language, what you see is an attempt to show a correlation between the presence of the Zika virus and the occurrence of the birth defect.

    Correlation is not causation. And that’s just the beginning of the problem.

    Even on the basis of correlation, nowhere in the study do we see anything approaching a high degree of association. You would expect to find evidence that in, say, 80 or 90 percent of cases, the Zika virus was found in babies who developed the defect. That evidence isn’t there. Well, how about a 90-percent correlation between microcephaly in the baby and Zika found in the mother? Not there, either. Again, not even close.

    Then there is the issue, rarely if ever touched on in studies these days, of “how much Zika was found.” Why is that important? Because, in order to begin asserting that a virus causes a condition, you need to discover a very high volume of it in a person. A small amount causes nothing.

    The new NEJM study doesn’t explore this vital factor.

    So the study is a dud.

    It claims that there is a very weak correlation between Zika and microcephaly. That’s it. That’s all.

    Nor does the study consider the obvious fact that a condition can have several or even many causes. And what could be causing birth defects in Brazil may not be causing it in the US or Guatemala.

    As I’ve clearly established in prior articles on Zika, only a fool or an outright liar would fail to notice the toxic pesticide drenching that takes place in Brazil, the number-one country for pesticide-use in the world. Some of those chemicals are banned in other countries, because they’re too poisonous.

    Therefore, in Brazil, a virus that has never been proved to cause microcephaly can function as a cover story. Zika protects, and diverts attention away from, pesticide manufacturers and agri-corporate giants who spray, spray, spray.

    And what about medical drugs ingested by pregnant mothers? Again, no recent studies on microcephaly investigate this “protected area.” Given that these medicines kill 106,000 people in the US every year, and maim at least hundreds of thousands more, any rational researcher would be highly motivated to look for a causal connection to microcephaly.

    Want another correlation? Try severe malnutrition in the pregnant mother. It’s the number-one cause of immune-system collapse on the planet. Immune-system failure opens the door to many raging infections in the mother and fetus. But no, malnutrition isn’t “medical.” How can you develop a vaccine or a drug to treat it? No money in it.

    There is, of course, money in research, and as I said at the top, US health agencies are trying to get more of it from Congress.

    The Zika virus was discovered in 1947-8. Since then, it has never been known to cause more than mild transient illness. Suddenly, it’s being blamed for severe and tragic birth defects. On what basis? On no basis.

    Who knows how long the virus has been on the planet? 5000 years? 100,000 years? It’s had ample opportunity to spread across the world and around the world many times. The notion that, now, suddenly, it’s traveling, is absurd. It’s already there. And here. And everywhere. It has been here and there and everywhere for a long time.

    However, a fiction of “unchecked spread” works, if you’re trying to Invent the concept of a highly dangerous virus that is popping up unexpectedly and making pregnant women give birth to babies with brain damage.

    Fear sells.

    And the people who sell it control the whole operation.

    What about actual science? They’ve never heard of it and don’t care about it.

    If you persist in believing they do care about it, you’re doing religion, and you’re in the wrong pew.

    Meanwhile, the multiple factors that can actually cause tragic birth defects are being ignored.

    In this article, I haven’t tried to cover the full range of “who benefits” from the fake war on Zika; but I should mention one group: the collaboration of companies, research labs, and foundations that propose using genetically engineered mosquitoes on a global basis to cut off future generations of Zika-carrying mosquitoes. Among this collaborating group are researchers who also want to release “gene drives,” mechanisms which sterilize the bugs in the wild. In both strategies, no human safety studies have been done. That is highly significant. The same absence of studies highlighted the original release of GMO crops in the 1990s. We were (falsely) assured then, as now, that no problems would develop.

    That’s another article of faith pretending to be science.

    Why don’t these researchers wear long robes and ornate hats, and wave wands and scepters that emit clouds of smoke? We’d be able to recognize them more easily.

    Can we get a simple bill passed to fund the installation of stained glass windows in CDC buildings, and the employment of choirs to intone Gregorian chants around the clock?

    Instead of publishing fake studies in journals, CDC priests and their eunuchs could appear on high balconies, overlooking packed plazas, and, in practiced monotone, read summaries of their research from parchment scrolls.

    Much better.

    Much more honest.

    Before America Wanted To Eradicate Them, The U.S. Military Was Weaponizing The Zika Mosquito

    By David on 8 August 2016 GMT

    ‘The story of Zika-carrying mosquitoes gets even more interesting when we delve into history.
    And, perhaps unsurprisingly, the U.S. military is involved.An investigation by Sarah Laskow at
    Atlas Obscura found that in the 1950s, the U.S. was seeking to weaponize the Aedes aegypti
    mosquito while Brazil and other Latin American countries were trying to eradicate it.

    At Fort Detrick, the military’s biological weapons base in Maryland, in great secret, Army scientists
    were considering how fleas, grasshoppers, and mosquitoes might be deployed against the Communist
    threat. These insects were harder to protect against than gas— masks wouldn’t help. The threat they
    posed would last, as long as a population of insects remained alive. Plus, it would be very difficult to
    pin an insect-borne attack on the U.S.’

    After months of anticipation, the Zika virus has finally arrived to the continental U.S., with 15
    non-travel cases being reported in Florida as of August 2. The virus is carried primarily by a
    species of mosquito called Aedes aegypti.

    The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) issued its first-ever warning for within the U.S., urging
    pregnant women to avoid travel to a Miami neighborhood where the Zika investigation is centered.
    CDC and the Florida Health Department recommended an aerial spraying program to cover a
    10-square-mile area just north of downtown Miami. The state is spraying a chemical called Naled,
    which is an organophospate pesticide that causes severe skin and eye irritation; it also contains
    an inert ingredient called napthaline which is classified by the EPA as a “possible human carcinogen.”

    would be bred to include segments of DNA from E. coli bacteria and other organisms, in the hopes
    that any eventual wild offspring will die, reducing the overall population. Needless to say,
    environmental activists and some scientists have raised many concerns over the program and its
    potential impact on humans. RT’s Ameera David takes a look.

    Bombshell: Zika fraud leads to mosquito spraying and autism

    by Jon Rappoport August 13, 2016

    The title of this piece could have been, “When the cure for a problem causes the problem.”

    Naled, the organophosphate pesticide now being sprayed on Miami to kill “Zika mosquitoes,” has dire effects.

    Reference: a 2014 study, “Neurodevelopmental disorders and prenatal residential proximity to agricultural pesticides: the CHARGE study.” [Environmental Health Perspectives, 2014 Oct;122(10):1103-9.]

    Key quotes from the study:
    “Gestational exposure to several common agricultural pesticides can induce developmental neurotoxicity in humans, and has been associated with developmental delay and autism.” [Emphasis added]
    “We evaluated whether residential proximity to agricultural pesticides during pregnancy is associated with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) or developmental delay (DD)…”
    “Approximately one-third of CHARGE study mothers lived, during pregnancy, within 1.5 km (just under 1 mile) of an agricultural pesticide application. Proximity to organophosphates at some point during gestation was associated with a 60% increased risk for ASD [Autism Spectrum Disorders], higher for third-trimester exposures…and second-trimester chlorpyrifos [an organophosphate pesticide] applications…”
    “This study of ASD strengthens the evidence linking neurodevelopmental disorders with gestational pesticide exposures, particularly organophosphates…”
    The pesticide spraying affects pregnant mothers by raising the risk of neurological damage to their babies.

    I’ve written a whole series of articles demonstrating that the Zika virus has never been proved to cause birth defects. (For starters, see here, here, and here. Full archive here.)

    The correlation between a) the presence of Zika and b) babies with the microcephaly birth defect is so weak and sparse, it constitutes counter-evidence for Zika as the cause.

    Honest researchers trying to find a cause of birth defects would go back to the drawing board, because the overwhelming majority of birth-defect cases show no presence of Zika.

    Therefore, the Zika-carrying mosquitoes have no business being the target of toxic spraying. But they are. And the spraying increases the risk of neurological damage in babies.

    Is there an attorney anywhere in the United States who, along with a good PR agency, would like to file a billion-dollar suit against the Florida Health Department and the CDC and the FDA? There are plenty of potential plaintiffs in Miami right now.

    SO WHAT BECAME OF THE $1.9 BILLION FOR ZIKA?
    So What Became of the $1.9 Billion for Zika?
    by Marco Cáceres
    Published August 17, 2016
    http://www.thevaccinereaction.org/20...lion-for-zika/
    Quote The U.S. government laid out a proposal to spend $1.9 billion on activities—including buying or developing vaccines—to combat Zika before knowing for sure if the virus, in fact, posed a serious health threat to the American public…
    On Feb. 22, 2016, the White House submitted to the U.S. Congress a $1.9 billion emergency supplemental appropriations request from the Departments of Health and Human Services (HHS) and State and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) for fiscal year (FY) 2016 for “preparedness efforts” related to the Zika virus.1

    Funding would support immediate response activities to prevent the spread of, prepare for, and respond to Zika virus transmission; fortify domestic public health systems to prevent, detect, and respond to Zika virus transmission; speed research, development, and procurement of vaccines, therapeutics, and diagnostics; provide emergency assistance to States and the U.S. Territories to combat the virus; provide additional Federal Medicaid funding in Puerto Rico and other U.S. Territories for health services for pregnant women at risk of infection or diagnosed with Zika virus, and for children with microcephaly, and for other health care costs; and enhance the ability of Zika-affected countries to better combat mosquitoes, control transmission, and support affected populations.1
    The supplemental funds included $828 million for the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to perform research to understand the “clinical and epidemiological patterns to make [the causal connection between Zika and microcephaly] definitive.”2

    So, let’s pause here briefly. The U.S. government laid out a proposal to spend $1.9 billion on activities—including buying or developing vaccines—to combat Zika before knowing for sure if the virus, in fact, posed a serious health threat to the American public—a virus that, for decades, has been known to be relatively harmless. The proposal was submitted to Congress just 10 days after the World Health Organization (WHO) stated in its Zika situation report, “No scientific evidence to date confirms a link between Zika virus and microcephaly…”3 At the time, even the CDC was saying, “Additional studies are needed to determine the degree to which Zika might be linked with microcephaly.”4

    There were clearly strong concerns at the CDC that there might be a connection between Zika and the noticeable uptick in the number of microcephaly birth defect cases being reported in Brazil, but that connection was still considered one based more on correlation rather than causation.5 6 7

    Three days before the $1.9 billion request was submitted to Congress, an article by Mike Stobbe of the Associated Press quoted University of Michigan epidemiologist Dr. Arnold Monto, who was skeptical of the link between Zika and microcephaly. According to Dr. Monto, “The simple presence of the virus doesn’t mean it caused the birth defect.” Stobbe also quoted University of Pittsburgh microbiologist Dr. Ernesto Marques, who noted that that proving a causal relationship between Zika and microcephaly is akin to prosecuting a murder investigation, with Zika as the supposed killer but with many unanswered questions.

    What you have so far, the victim is there, and you find a person right there that has a smoking gun in his hand. But you still need to close the deal.8
    The Stobbe article went on to say that, according to experts, it “will take a combination of studies and laboratory evidence to finally determine if Zika is the villain it appears to be.”8

    It was not until Apr. 13, 2016—a full seven weeks after the emergency funds were requested—that the CDC announced its belief that the Zika virus was “a cause of microcephaly and other severe fetal brain defects.”9 The conclusion by the CDC was based on a paper written and published in The New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) by Sonja A. Rasmussen, MD, Denise J. Jamieson, MD, MPH, Margaret A. Honein, PhD, MPH, and Lyle R. Petersen, MD, MPH.10 All four authors are CDC employees.

    This study marks a turning point in the Zika outbreak. It is now clear that the virus causes microcephaly. We are also launching further studies to determine whether children who have microcephaly born to mothers infected by the Zika virus is the tip of the iceberg of what we could see in damaging effects on the brain and other developmental problems,” said Tom Frieden, MD, MPH., director of the CDC. “We’ve now confirmed what mounting evidence has suggested, affirming our early guidance to pregnant women and their partners to take steps to avoid Zika infection and to health care professionals who are talking to patients every day. We are working to do everything possible to protect the American public.9
    It is reasonable to assume that the government was just being prudent and wanted to move forward as quickly as possible to prepare for the possibility of a causal connection between Zika and microcephaly. It’s also reasonable to think the government was getting way ahead of itself and seemed bent on proving a causal connection at all costs, even in light of emerging reports from medical and environmental groups in South America suggesting a more likely cause of the microcephaly cases could well be toxic pesticides such as Pyriproxyfen.11

    Alternative theories as to the cause of the microcephaly cases seemed to be dismissed outright by the CDC. Of course, the problem with adopting such certainty so early on in the process of investigating an apparent epidemic is that you can become mired in wanting to prove what you believe to be true, rather than remaining open to all possibilities. This kind of mindset is thoroughly unscientific. It appears to give more weight to keeping to an agenda than to discovering the truth.

    House and Senate Zika Funding Bills
    On May 17, the Senate passed a $1.1 billion funding package for “international and domestic Zika control and prevention efforts through September 2017.”12 The House of Representatives on May 18 responded with its own Zika funding package worth $622 million.

    The two main differences between the two measures had to do with timing and the source of the funds. While the Senate bill (H.R. 2577) provided money through September 2007, the House bill (H.R. 5243) did so only through September 2016.13 14 Meanwhile, while the House bill was funded entirely through “offset” transfer payments from other areas of the budget, the Senate bill was funded through new debt spending.14

    In mid-June, a House-Senate conference committee conducted negotiations to resolve differences between the two bills. On June 22, the conference committee reached an agreement on a compromise bill which would provide $1.1 billion for Zika-related activities, but would source the money from existing budget accounts. The legislation earmarked $476 million for the CDC for mosquito control and $230 million for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for development of a Zika vaccine.15

    The compromise bill, for example, would cut $543 million in “unused funds” from implementation of Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare”) health care exchanges in U.S. territories. It would also transfer $107 million from HHS in “leftover” money, which had been originally appropriated to combat Ebola in the U.S. in 2014, and $100 million in administrative funds. Additionally, the legislation included a provision to block money from going to the Planned Parenthood organization for birth control services to women who might be at risk of contracting Zika.15

    The House of Representatives passed the compromise bill on June 23, but the measure failed passage in the Senate on June 28 due largely to sharp disagreements on the Planned Parenthood provision, as well as language seeking to relax environmental regulations.16

    In mid-July, Congress adjourned for a seven-week recess, leaving the issue of emergency funding for Zika unresolved.17

    HHS Shifts Money Toward Zika
    On Aug. 11, HHS Secretary Sylvia M. Burwell announced plans to transfer $81 million from other accounts within her department’s budget to help fight Zika. Of the total, $34 million will come from NIH programs and $47 million from the budget of the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority. These funds will supplement $347 million that HHS has already reallocated for Zika efforts.18 19

    The move by HHS is seen as a stopgap measure until Congress reconvenes in September and decides to resume consideration of the Zika legislation. So, this story is… to be continued. What is clear is that, now that the CDC has taken the official position that the Zika virus causes microcephaly, it will be very difficult, certainly from a political standpoint, for the agency to change its position—regardless of what new scientific research may eventually uncover. “That’s our story and we’re sticking with it!”

    Within less than a year of the news reports from Brazil about the sudden rise in microcephaly cases in that country, we’ve already discovered the cause of the supposed epidemic, taken a giant leap of faith that the U.S. public is also in imminent danger, commenced pesticide spraying campaigns in U.S. cities against mosquitoes believed to carry Zika, and proceeded full steam ahead to develop a Zika vaccine.

    It’s absolutely breathtaking.

    Zika hysteria could make intercourse illegal for those who are infected... similar to HIV/AIDS carriers

    ‘Hysteria over the Zika virus continues to spread – with the help of government health authorities and
    the media – and the latest scare tactics could lead to the legal banning of sexual intercourse for those

    who become infected.

    On August 26, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released a report regarding the
    alleged sexual transmission of the Zika virus by a man who displayed no symptoms of the disease
    before or after having intercourse with his female partner, who subsequently contracted the disease.’
