    Default Zika: Brazil Admits It’s Not the Virus

    Basically a compilation of what's already known

    Amidst growing fear-based propaganda warning of the threat of Zika virus comes a quiet admission from health officials in Brazil: Zika alone may not be responsible for the rise in birth defects that plagued parts of the country.
    While there is some evidence suggesting Zika virus may be linked to the birth defect microcephaly, and the virus has been spreading throughout Brazil, rates of the condition have only risen to very high rates in the northeast section of Brazil.
    Since the virus has spread throughout Brazil, but extremely high rates of microcephaly have not, officials are now being forced to admit that something else is likely at play.
    Dr. Fatima Marinho, director of information and health analysis at Brazil’s ministry of health, told the journal Nature, “We suspect that something more than Zika virus is causing the high intensity and severity of cases.”1

    Many people may already have known this, including readers of Hawkes Health; the publication in a venue such as this might involve a wider audience.

    When the 'news' of a supposed link between zika and microcephaly first came out here in Brazil, several people I talked to told me they thought something was fishy about it. I thought so too, from the beginning, and so many things have come out now suggesting other causes.

    Yes, Patty and Maurya, I infer from what has been posted in this forum that the association of zika with birth defects may one day be shown to be a vast smoke screen, covering up the role of pesticides. The two may continue to be conflated as long as insecticides continue to be sprayed in areas where the mosquito carrier has been found to spread the disease.
