I was again surprised that Amy Goodman's Democracy Now! failed to
note this morning (Tuesday) that there is a firestorm of efforts to
not accept the pharmaceutical-driven explanation (the "lone
gunman" Zika virus) for the upsurge in cases of infant microcephaly
particularly in Brazil.
The No Spray Coalition against pesticides has been compiling articles and
educated viewpoints from scientists, ecologists and activists to be able
to present a comprehensive picture of what is actually going on with the
infant deformities now attributed to the previously very mild Zika virus.
Right now, there seem to be three main causal theories apart from
"the virus did it":
each of which may be the cause of the outbreak. In Brazil's case, we
need to also look at the effects of their mutual (synergistic)
- - the release of Genetically Modified mosquitoes;
- - a newly required vaccine; and
- - mass application of certain pesticides;
If you have research items to contribute, please post them to
ActionGreens. The NoSpray.org website will collect and post this info
within the next few days.
