Take the Zika blinders off

Those damn Zika blinders, just take ’em off


What if… bear with me now. Just… what if it’s not Zika and the mosquitoes that carry the virus, but rather… pesticides? Pesticides which Brazil already sprays in monstrous proportions everywhere, but particularly in its northeastern region where the vast number of microcephaly cases are occurring. If, just if, it IS the pesticides, and NOW the Brazilians are doubling up on their use (to kill the Zika-carrying pests) in places where people live and work and sleep and play and swim and eat and drink…

Might that not tremendously aggravate the microcephaly epidemic to unknown proportions? Might we not be dumping fuel on an already robust fire? Might we not unknowingly be digging ourselves into an ever deeper hole we may never be able to correctly dig out of? I’m just saying… Why not stop for a moment, take a deep breath, look around, and CONSIDER even the remotest possibility that we, in all our scientific and medical glory, may be looking in the wrong place?
