ZIKA ... maybe not the mozzies after all!

Zika virus causing birth defects? Maybe it is not the mosquitos after all ! :?:
A report from the Argentine doctors’ organisation, Physicians in the Crop-Sprayed Towns,[1] challenges the theory that the Zika virus epidemic in Brazil is the cause of the increase in the birth defect microcephaly among newborns.

The increase in this birth defect, in which the baby is born with an abnormally small head and often has brain damage, was quickly linked to the Zika virus by the Brazilian Ministry of Health. However, according to the Physicians in the Crop-Sprayed Towns, the Ministry failed to recognise 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 programme aimed at eradicating disease-carrying mosquitoes.

Not surprised, although I suspect that soon there will be talk of "Conspiracy Theories" [if there is anything of substance to hide]. 8)

Sounds plausible. Especially from its mode of activity:

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), according to the Physicians.


I wonder what trials have been conducted with this chemical? Are they all public? It's the sort of thing that would also affect humans. The regulatory elements responsible for development are extremely similar in most animals. If this chemical disrupts those of mosquitoes it would most likely also be toxic in humans.

A good reason for not letting the news get into the MSM? It seems that the dates of the dosing of the water supply and the outbreak of Zika are almost coincident. If this proves to be a valid concern then the authorities and the manufacturers will be in very deep trouble. It is a bit like Thalidomide! Denied for years and then eventually proven to be true.

I also read somewhere that there is another virus spreading trough the same area's that have been infected with Zika! :(

Too often the 'potential threat to human health' is downplayed in favour of the economic advantages to using insecticides. Add to that a modicum of a possible control of mosquito-borne diseases and I'm sure this product would have sailed through the trials.

If a company like (untouchable) Monsanto was behind its creation/distribution, then, enough said, (best add it's IMHO) .... :roll: Let's hope someone does the research before any more babies are likely to suffer.

Just going to scaffold some information here, if that's OK.

Estrogen is an important hormone that has to be tightly regulated (type and amount) during all stages of pregnancy.

Estrogenic activity is a measure of how similarly a chemical behaves to estrogen(s).

High estrogenic activity is why we have had to curb parabens and suchlike from polluting our water systems and turning boys into girls (so to speak).

When they do clinical trials, they usually just test the one chemical - ignoring possible synergstic effects (too complex) but these are often what cause major problems when unknown combinations meet and interact in real life.

Here's one study from PubMed (Manabe et al., 2006) that looked at one combination with pyriproxyfen:

It was found that diazinon, tolclofos-methyl, pyriproxyfen, prothiofos and thiabendazole had estrogenic activity.Several pesticides are often present in agricultural products. Therefore, we evaluated the estrogenic activity of a mixture of two pesticides. The REC(10) levels of prothiofos/pyriproxyfen and thiabendazole/orthophenylphenol were increased up to 10-fold. We concluded that those two pesticide combinations showed a significantly higher estrogenic effect in comparison to the results of the respective pesticides when tested individually.


This is just the tip of the iceberg ...

In Cyprus half the population is suffering from respiration problems and flues that seem to last for ever this year.
Is there any doubt as to why we had absolutely no rain this year despite the heavy clouds and chilly weather?
The British virtually spayed the whole area from Cyprus to Crete to Ionize the air and have their damn Echelon system on full because of the war in Syria. And our sorry Anastasiades Government did not dare utter a single word of complain.

And your evidence for that rubbish is? :roll: A Cyriot friend of my wife's claimed that the British have an underground airfield at Akrotiri and also a special 'weather' machine that can divert twisters !!! Maybe you and she know one another? :roll:

You were right Garavnos ..... it has not been long before the 'everything-is-a-conspiracy-theory' idiots post! :roll:

Spanner .... if you have nothing intelligent to offer why waste your time posting? :roll:

Because it annoys you, which I enjoy doing when you post your normal rubbish.
