Dr. Brownstein on Zika Virus: No Panic NeededI was waiting to comment on the Zika virus until more information comes to light, but I have decided to throw my two cents in. As most of you know, in Brazil, there is an epidemic of microcephaly—infants being born with tiny heads and many health problems associated with it. An astute doctor in Brazil first recognized the connection between microcephaly and the Zika virus. However, it is far from proven that the Zika virus is causing microcephaly. I do not think Zika is causing the epidemic of microcephaly in Brazil. The reason I do not think Zika is causing this epidemic is that Zika has been around for a long time—why has microcephaly suddenly become an epidemic in Brazil? Let’s hope that the CDC doesn’t pour all its energy into making a vaccine against Zika until it is proven to be the cause of this epidemic.
Dr. Brownstein on Zika Virus: No Panic NeededDr. Brownstein: Excellent article; you hit all the right points. But let's be real, the CDC will (and already has) jump in with both feet (as has the other criminal organization, the WHO) to come up with a new vaccine that will be required of all travelers to Zika countries. That's what they do: sell vaccines, vaccines are their sacred cow. As you pointed out, Brazil mandated dangerous vaccines; the Zika virus has given them a wonderful opportunity to deflect blame from the vaccines, GMOs and pesticides/herbicides. They will never do the research you recommend, because it will point the finger of guilt on the vaccines, etc. as well as deny Big Pharma another cash cow vaccine. The CDC, WHO, the FDA, etc. are guilty of crimes against humanity since vaccines are essentially medical experiments performed without properly advising patients of risks and in many cases without consent (whatever happened to the lessons of the Nuremburg Trials?). Anyway, many thanks for your very thoughtful article.
