Blackout on Puerto Rico’s federal lawsuit against CDC over Naled
By James F. Tracy
Major Western news media’s coverage of the alleged dangers posed by the Zika virus and “preventative” measures mandated by overreaching federal agencies is a textbook example of censorship by omission, intentional oversight of facts, and deference to questionable “expert” authority to assuage valid public concern over aerial deployment of dangerous pesticides.
This summer South Florida public health authorities under the direction of the Centers For Disease Control asserted that a handful of Zika cases warrants a mass aerial spraying campaign to protect the public and unborn, all of whom may be susceptible to microcephaly—a prenatal neurological condition characterized by deformation of the head.
[As CDC Director Thomas Frieden threatens Congress that Zika will spread if his agency doesn’t receive more taxpayer money for questionable research on the virus, Miami Beach is officially moving forward with its program of spraying its population with the organophosphate pesticide Naled in an alleged attempt to control the area’s mosquito population, and thus Zika. Unfortunately as we have attempted to relate at MHB (i.e. here and here) the inhalation of such a neurotoxic substance produces effects far more deleterious than Zika, and can resemble symptoms that could be easily mistaken for the virus.-Ed.]
