New evidence suggests birth defects not caused by Zika, prompting investigation into environmental factors


(NaturalNews) Government leaders in Brazil, the epicenter of the Zika virus outbreak that's being blamed on infected mosquitoes, are having second thoughts about its cause, new reports indicate. After noticing anomalous trends with regards to symptoms of the disease and where they're breaking out and spreading, epidemiologists and vector specialists now believe that environmental pollution is a more likely cause of the outbreak – not necessarily mosquitoes.

Either that, or some combination of mosquitoes and chemical toxicity is to blame for the wave of birth defects, miscarriages and other pregnancy-related problems being seen in pockets throughout the country, but not everywhere. Some areas are seeing high numbers of these horrific health outcomes while many others aren't, even though mosquitoes are present in all of them – and nowhere in Brazil are health experts seeing the "explosion" of Zika cases that was expected based on the mosquito narrative.

Brazil's Ministry of Health has already launched an investigation to look into the cluster of babies born with brain defects associated with the Zika virus. Though it's expected to take several months to reach a conclusion, the inquiry aims to solve the puzzle of what, exactly, is causing pregnant mothers to suffer perinatal abnormalities, and their babies to suffer birth defects: Zika, environmental pollution or some combination of both?

"We can see there is a kind of cluster in [part of] the northeast region with high prevalence and high severity, of miscarriage and congenital malformation that is really severe; but we didn't find this in other states – even the [adjacent] states didn't see the same situation as in the epicenter," Fatima Marinho, coordinator of epidemiological analysis and information at Brazil's Ministry of Health, told the press.

"We were preparing for an explosion and it didn't come."

Zika scare an excuse to blast populations with more toxic chemicals

The Brazilian ministry speculates that co-infection with other viruses like dengue or chikungunya might be another possibility, or perhaps some combination of chemical poisoning and viral infection. In either case, more investigation is needed before governments start doling out experimental Zika vaccines that might just exacerbate the problem by spreading more disease.

There's also the intentional chemical poisoning theory – the idea that the entire thing is staged to make an excuse for more aerial spraying endeavors. It's already apparent that anything involving mosquitoes or insects is typically given the chemical carpet bomb treatment.

Zika has been around forever, of course, and nobody's batted an eye about it until just recently. This is because Zika, as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) openly admits, is typically mild and rarely even shows symptoms. If it does show symptoms, sufferers typically get over them quickly and are awarded with lifelong immunity as a result – and naturally, all without a vaccine.

Another easy way to avoid the worst consequences of infectious disease, and perhaps avoid it altogether, is simply to detoxify. And one simple way to do this is using an ancient Ayurvedic technique known as oil pulling.

But these inconvenient truths don't sell vaccines, and they certainly don't provide excuses for governments to send planes around to spray anti-mosquito chemicals in fulfillment of lucrative contracts they've signed with chemical corporations. It's about money, power and control, after all – all of which come through selling fear. And Zika, it seems, is the latest Ebola. Or bird flu. Or swine flu. Or whatever happens to come down the pipeline as an alleged threat to the perpetuity of humanity.

Brazil seems to have the right idea: Rather than panicking and trying to jab everyone with untested and potentially deadly vaccines, why don't we instead take a closer look at the multiple factors that are likely contributing to the problem? Then, a more sound, common sense solution can be determined rather than a panicked, reactionary one that could make things worse.
