Zika: 4,180 becomes 270 becomes 6

If you’re following the news, public health officials are manufacturing a scare around the so-called “Zika” virus. We were initially told of an outbreak in Brazil in which it was discovered that there were 4,180 cases of microcephaly, or babies born with small heads. This sort of symptom is usually the result of an “insult” to the fetus during development, and can be cause be a host of factors environmental and physical.

Later, Brazilian officials reviewed their records and reduced the number of real cases of microcephaly from 4,180 to 270. And then there was this, reported by AP:

“Brazilian officials said the babies with the defect [microcephaly/small heads, brain damage] and their mothers are being tested to see if they had been infected. Six of the 270 confirmed microcephaly cases were found to have the [Zika] virus.”

That is not enough to indicate cause and effect. In the US every year we have 25,000 cases of microcephaly, none related to Zika.

What’s up? Why the hoax? Why the scare? I cannot begin to know but can guess that it comes down to two things: spreading fear, and siphoning resources into pharmaceutical corporations. After all, they need to develop a vaccine now.

Here’s a Huffington Post article advancing the scare and panic line.

Here’s a Jon Rappoport piece trying to set the record straight.

  1. Spreading fear and toxic chemicals? Didn’t Dow and DuPont just announce a merger? http://www.newyorker.com/news/john-cassidy/a-dow-dupont-merger-would-raise-big-questions

    Wonder how many birth defects will result from pesticide poisoning. Health scare = martial law. Maybe Brazil pissed off the World Bank and is being punished before the Olympics. The Olympics seemed to trigger the latest bash-Russia propaganda; why not a carbon copy? Too far out? Anything’s possible.

    1. My wife was hiking with a group recently – one of them is concerned and might cancel a trip to Mexico to see the monarchs due to fear of Zika. This fear-based stuff travels.

      Who makes money? PhRMA? That’s all I can figure – they get to develop another useless vaccine.

  2. Just to clarify, I live in a third world country and I did get infected with some virus, ZIKA (according to blood tests) and one thing I can assure is: this virus is not normal, the pain in the muscles/joints the high fever, was not the typical you get from the flu or cold, I had never felt soo much pain in my life, the soreness was horrible… I do believe ZIKA exists, but I am certain it was fabricated. I don’t think the many cases of hydrocephalus babies are because pregnant mothers got infected by ZIKA, they are surely other reasons this happened.

    1. Thanks for your input. I will hold out on Zika until they define for us exactly how the virus functions. Mere presence of a organisms in our bodies means nothing – we have trillions of them, some even deadly, but all held in check and doing their own thing, not harming us. So the link between ZIKA and the illness you experienced is at best highly speculative. It could be a host of causes, environmental or internal.

      I do suspect Zika is being used to mask something else, just as “SIDS” (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) has been used to mask the effects of DPT vaccinations. It protects large corporations from liability
