According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the Zika virus has been around since at least 1947. The first reports of microcephaly connected with Zika were in late 2015 in Brazil. Some people believe that the real cause of the big increase in the microcephaly cases is actually the larvicide uses to control the mosquitoes which carry Zika virus, among many other diseases. Of course, the manufacturers of the chemicals say they are harmless.

So, I guess that after hundreds of millions of Zika infections in the past 69 years where only 20% had any symptoms at all, the Zika virus suddenly mutated in mid-2015 into a Super Dangerous Virus--and this occurred in various isolated places all at the same time!

We all know chemical companies have been poisoning the earth and us for decades, and government approvals mean nothing when money is at stake.

Therefore, I believe we must talk with some real doctors and scientists who have knowledge of the subject - and who do not have any ties to chemical companies - to consider the real facts about the pesticides planned for spraying before the spraying is done. Certainly the potential danger of the chemicals merits a few days to have disinterested experts inform us.
