PLAN TO RELEASE GM MOSQUITOES IS NOT A REMEDY FOR ZIKA, COULD MAKE IT WORSE


*BRAZILIAN SCIENTISTS SAY NO LINK BETWEEN ZIKA AND MICROCEPHALY

*PROVE THAT CASES OF MICROCEPHAY HAVE BEEN UNDER REPORTED FOR YEARS

*CONCLUDE THAT MICROPCEHALY COULD BE CAUSED BY MALNUTRITION OR VACCINES

There is a lot of evidence that the GM mosquitoes are causing the Zika outbreak. Therefore, a plan floated by British company Oxitec and backed by WHO to release more of their genetically modified insects,  Aedes Aegypti, will likely increase the cases of Zika.

There is little evidence that Zika is an infectious disease, easily transmitted between humans. Zika seems to be transmitted primarily by mosquitoes.

The evidence that the GM mosquitoes are causing Zika is compelling. The epicenter of the Zika outbreak is the same area in Brazil where GM mosquitoes were released in 2015.

There is, therefore, a clear geographical and temporal association between Zika and the GM mosquitoes. A correlation as strong as this implies causation.

Furthermore, there is no proof that the GM mosquitoes are not causing Zika. There are no studies into the potential knock-on effects of releasing GM mosquitoes. There is no proof the GM mosquitoes are not thriving in the wild and taking on unknown mutations, which in turn are worsening the spread the Zika virus.

An argument being used for releasing the GM mosquitoes is that in one study they reduced dengue fever.

It may be true that in one study the GM mosquitoes reduced dengue fever. But if they introduce another, more virulent disease, then the costs or releasing them outweigh any benefits.

The next argument for releasing the GM mosquitoes is the false claim that there is a causal link between Zika and microcephaly.

In fact, there is no proof that Zika is the cause of microcephaly.

Columbia is suffering from an outbreak of Zika, yet no cases of microcephaly associated with Zika in a mother have been reported so far, at least, a quick scan of media indicate no cases.

In addition,  Brazilian scientist Dr. Sandra da Silva Mattos  has produced evidence that Brazil has had an under reported microphely problem for many years. She identified possible causes as poverty and malnutrition.
as well as vaccines or drugs used in early pregnancy, but excluded Zika.

Dr Mattos posted her report online on January 29th.

The Lancet also questions the validity of the claim that there has been a significant rise in microcephaly in Brazil, noting it is a quesiton of how reported numbers are interpreted.

“Although there is evidence of an increased number
of cases of microcephaly in Brazil, we show that the
number of suspected cases relied on a screening test that
had very low specificity and therefore overestimated
the actual number of cases by including mostly normal
children with small heads. We recommend that national
and international agencies should refrain from
reporting suspected cases and speed up investigation
to report on confirmed cases with laboratory or
radiological evidence. It is also important that health
workers measure head circumference in all newborn
babies using standardised anthropometric techniques,
and report results in mm. The present situation in
Brazil is certainly a severe public health challenge.
Better measurement and use of the appropriate growth
standards are essential for the continued surveillance of
microcephaly cases that are potentially associated with
the Zika virus infection.”

There is no evidence Zika causes Guillain Barre syndrome. The isolated example of an a temporal association with cases on French Polynesia ignores the overwhelming, global evidence that Guillain Barre syndrome is caused by vaccines, specifically the swine flu vaccine.

In short, we seem to have a mosquito genetically engineered to be especially fast and spread a range of diseases.

The best protection would seem to be eliminating these mosquitoes from your environment by going around your home and backyard and finding and eliminating every tiny drop of water or spilled drink where mosquitoes can breed. In addition, using mosquito repellent, mosquito nets and covering yourself up are all effective and safe ways of protecting yourself from GM mosquito.

The best protection  against these hyped epidemics is for countries to withdraw once and for all from the International Health Regulations, which compel them to use experimental drugs and vaccines to treat diseases.
