  • commented on NCAP's Statement About the Zika Virus 2016-04-29 13:14:07 -0700
    there is a lot of controversy about the Zika virus and its connection to microcephaly and other severe health effects. How Zika went from a virus barely worth mentioning, to being an international health emergency, i think deserves some real scrutiny. Larvicides applied in Brazil are one theory about the cause of the microcephaly pandemic there, and in the international rush to buy out the pesticide manufacturers’ stocks, we need to remember the concept of sustainability. we are already poisoning ourselves nearly off the planet. is blitzing every remaining mosquito and water body to protect every last human, really the best solution?
