The fear of the Zika virus is as unfounded as the hysteria over Ebola, the brouhaha over west Nile virus and the huckster companies that scared the populace into getting vaccinated for the swine flu, which never even existed.  Yes, for giant pharma the Zika virus is the flavor of the month.  With this new flavor (threat), big pharma are poised to rake in billions of dollars. The President of the United States has already proposed granting a billion dollars to find a cure (vaccine), even though big pharma already has a patent out and is in the final stages of testing a vaccine for the Zika virus.

FACT: The Zika virus has been around for a long time and has never been an issue, except in populations that are starving. These starving people are subject to any disease that might happen to come their way because of a lack of nutrition which weakens the immune system.  So, the solution is to nourish the masses rather than inoculate them for millions of bacteria and viruses that do exist.

FACT: Zika virus does not cause birth defects and especially does not cause microcephaly. Brazil initially had 4,180 suspected cases of microcephaly (shrunken heads and small brains). Only 270 cases have been confirmed and only 6 of these cases could be correlated to the Zika virus by medical researchers. Not that the Zika virus caused the microcephaly, in these six cases, only that they had experienced both conditions.

PERHAPS: The rapid spread of this once rare, benign, asymptomatic viral infection can be blamed on the bio-tech company Oxitec.  Who in 2012 mass-released genetically modified mosquitos against dengue fever.  This GMO mosquito is the species that is carrying the Zika virus. 

PERHAPS:  The action taken by the Brazilian government of employing nearly a quarter million troops to eradicate this GMO mosquito is causing the birth defects. The troops are spraying chemicals everywhere including the favelas.  These areas contain houses made of cardboard walls so there is no escaping chemical damage.

PERHAPS: The 2014 mandate by the Brazilian government to vaccinate all expectant mothers with the new T dap vaccine, with its inherent toxic chemicals of mercury and aluminum, could be partially responsible for brain damage in a tiny fetus.

FACT:  Most birth defects among people in poverty are caused by chemicals.  However, chemical damage can affect anyone.

In order to avoid microcephaly, one does not have to take birth control pills or avoid trips to Brazil. Simply avoid injecting chemicals in one’s body, do not play where they spray and learn how to deal with fever diseases.  May I suggest Dr. Christopher’s excellent book Herbal Home Health Care or the excellent Family Herbalist course from the School of Natural Healing and start your path towards medical independence.
