CDC Recommendations for Fighting Zika May be Causing Microcephaly, Autism, and Cancer

by John P. Thomas
Health Impact News

CDC recommendations may be causing microcephaly, autism, and cancer. The new generation NIH Zika vaccine may end up altering the human genome and giving millions of people chronic illness. Together, the recent actions of the CDC and their plans for the future threaten to drive the U.S. population into a state of mental confusion and prevent us from making well-reasoned decisions. Let’s find out what these government agencies are up to now.

Aerial Spraying of Pesticides Known to cause Microcephaly

In my previous article I described how the aerial spraying of naled, and the chemicals that are formed when it breaks down in the environment, had the potential for causing serious harm to humans and for killing many types of insects other than mosquitoes.

Zika: A Masterpiece of Public Mind Control

These are three key facts that we need to keep in mind about the spraying program.

  1. Naled exposure causes increased aggressiveness and a deterioration of memory and learning. These are some of the symptoms that are also found in children on the autism spectrum. These symptoms are also experienced by adults in an often subtle state of mental impairment, which is called brain fog, in which people just can’t think clearly and make good decisions.
  1. One of the most toxic breakdown products from naled is dichlorvos. This chemical caused a 15% reduction in brain size in pregnant lab animals after 3 days of exposure. Another word for reduced brain size is microcephaly.
  1. Dichlorvos is associated with the development of leukemia and pancreatic cancer in lab animals, and with the development of brain cancer in children.

So, the pesticide that is being sprayed could increase the rate of autism among children in the spray zone, could cause microcephaly to occur in the babies of pregnant women, and could cause cancer. It could also cause many people to become docile participants in door to door unconstitutional searches for Zika infected people. As we will see later in this article, people in the spray zone can develop brain fog, which is a kind of mental confusion which would inhibit their ability to stand up for their privacy rights, protect their medical information from government intrusion, and make clear headed decisions about taking vaccines.

All this is happening on the basis of a still unproven link between the Zika virus and microcephaly.

Naled + DEET = Disaster

The dangers of aerial and ground spraying of insecticides for mosquitoes actually go even deeper. The standard practice of the EPA and Big Chem is to conduct safety experiments that only test the effects of a certain chemical in isolation from all other chemicals.

In the real world, no one is exposed to single chemicals. We are all exposed to hundreds and sometimes thousands of chemicals every day. What happens when people are exposed to a combination of naled, dichlorvos, DEET, and other chemicals such as pesticide residue in food, water, and air? Bug sprays containing DEET are one of the most highly recommended and frequently used products for repelling mosquitoes.

DEET Intensifies the Harmful Effects of Naled and other Pesticides

Mosquito-repellent-DEET.jpg

DEET has long been used as an insect repellent and is contained in many grocery store brands of mosquito repellent. Products containing DEET seem to always be at the top of the list of products recommended by the CDC and the news media. [1, 2]

Anthony Fauci from the CDC gives consumers plain and clear instructions for selecting bug repellant. He stated:

However, they need to study the labels carefully and look for a particular ingredient. “What they need to look at in the labels are the letters D, E, E, T, DEET, and it’s got to be over 30 percent. [3]

As we will see, Dr. Fauci’s advice does not fit with what scientific research has to say about DEET, especially when people are being exposed to other pesticides.

Human Skin is not a Barrier to DEET and Other Pesticides

Most people think that human skin is a barrier to anything that we put on it. Actually the skin is highly permeable. Skincare products, makeup, perfume, and DEET all penetrate the skin. According to long forgotten reports from the CDC, DEET rapidly penetrates the skin and is even used as a penetration agent to bring other chemicals such as pharmaceutical drugs into the body. [4]

This is what the Canadian Medical Association says about DEET’s ability to enter the blood stream. They stated:

Although DEET’s effectiveness is related to its topical use, its systemic adverse effects are related to the amount that is absorbed into the blood. After 6 hours, 9%–56% of the dose appears in the circulation (systemic bioavailability). However, if DEET is ingested, intentionally or unintentionally, peak plasma levels are much higher and are achieved within 1 hour. [5]

Even though the Canadian Medical Association Journal indicated that DEET is safe, Health Canada still decided to ban the sale of DEET repellents that contain more than 30% DEET. They then provided a long list of precautions that should be taken with children under the age of 12. The precautions call for limited applications of DEET based on the age of the child. [6]

While Canada phased out DEET products containing more than 30% DEET as of 2004 and provided serious warning for use of the product on children, the U.S. is still recommending DEET products for people of all ages. The U.S. EPA says DEET is safe in concentrations up to 99%. They say it can be used on children without restriction. They say that when a person returns indoors they should be sure to wash off all the DEET. They say that clothing that has been contaminated with DEET should be washed before it is worn again. They said that DEET may cause skin reactions in rare cases. They indicate that if you or your child is having an adverse reaction to a DEET product, then discontinue use of the product, wash treated skin, and call your local poison control center or physician for help. [7]

Long Forgotten Warning about DEET Still Lingers on CDC Website

While the EPA says DEET is safe, and Health Canada takes a position of semi-precaution, the CDC still has a serious warning about DEET on their website.

In a 2001 report on the CDC website, we learn the following. The CDC stated:

Since 1961, at least six cases of toxic systemic reactions from repeated cutaneous exposure to DEET have been reported (1-6). Six girls, ranging in age from 17 months to 8 years, developed behavioral changes, ataxia, encephalopathy, seizures, and/or coma after repeated cutaneous exposure to DEET; three died. Another six systemic toxic reactions have been reported following ingestion of DEET.

Additionally, episodes of confusion, irritability, and insomnia have been reported by Everglades National Park employees following repeated and prolonged use of DEET.

DEET is partially absorbed through the skin and has been used to enhance dermal delivery of other drugs. Adverse reactions include allergic responses, direct neurotoxicity, and dermatitis. [8]

The harmful effects of DEET have been known for more than 5 decades. Children developed behavioral changes, heart beat irregularity, brain swelling, seizures, and/or coma after repeated sprayings of DEET on the skin. Some children died. In adults, repeated use of DEET was reported to cause episodes of mental confusion, irritability, and insomnia.

DEET intensifies the Toxicity of other Pesticides

Regardless of what you choose to believe about the safety of DEET, one thing is clear – the synergy of DEET as it interacts with other chemicals was not studied by the EPA. The approval of chemical agents is usually done in isolation. Studies look at how much of a product is needed to kill 50% of lab animals (LD50). What they don’t look at is how much of the chemical is needed to produce the lethal dose of 50% when animals are exposed to numerous other chemicals in the environment. For example they don’t assess the LD50 for DEET when the animals have also been exposed to carbamate insecticides such as naled, which is being sprayed over Miami and large sections of the U.S. to kill mosquitoes.

We now know that when DEET is in the blood stream along with carbamate and other pesticides, it has a harmful synergetic effect. It intensifies the harmful effects of the pesticides that were sprayed in the air over Miami. It also intensifies the toxic effects of common pesticides used in conventional agriculture. This means people who eat conventionally grown food that contains pesticide residue are magnifying their risks when they use DEET. This means pregnant women are more likely to give birth to babies with microcephaly when they eat conventional food and use DEET.

Let’s look at the research that proves what I have just stated. In a 2009 study, scientists showed how the use of DEET magnifies the dangers of other pesticides. Scientists stated:

By using toxicological, biochemical and electrophysiological techniques, we show that DEET is not simply a behavior-modifying chemical but that it also inhibits cholinesterase activity, in both insect and mammalian neuronal preparations. DEET is commonly used in combination with insecticides and we show that DEET has the capacity to strengthen the toxicity of carbamates, a class of insecticides known to block acetylcholinesterase.

These findings question the safety of DEET, particularly in combination with other chemicals, and they highlight the importance of a multidisciplinary approach to the development of safer insect repellents for use in public health. [9]

Science Daily gives us this summary of this situation. They stated:

The active ingredient in many insect repellents, DEET, has been found to be toxic to the central nervous system. Researchers say that more investigations are urgently needed to confirm or dismiss any potential neurotoxicity to humans, especially when DEET-based repellents are used in combination with other neurotoxic insecticides. [10]

Duke University pharmacologist, Mohamed Abou-Donia, Ph.D., conducted extensive research on DEET. His research found:

Frequent and prolonged applications of DEET cause neurons to die in regions of the brain that control muscle movement, learning, memory and concentration. … Such effects are consistent with physical symptoms in humans reported in the medical literature, especially by Persian Gulf War veterans.

If used sparingly, infrequently and by itself, DEET may not have negative effects – the literature here isn’t clear,” he said. “But frequent and heavy use of DEET, especially in combination with other chemicals or medications, could cause brain deficits in vulnerable populations.” Children in particular are at risk for subtle brain changes caused by chemicals in the environment, because their skin more readily absorbs them, and chemicals more potently affect their developing nervous systems, said Abou-Donia.

With heavy exposure to DEET and other insecticides, humans may experience memory loss, headache, weakness, fatigue, muscle and joint pain, tremors and shortness of breath, said Abou-Donia.

[His] studies demonstrate the severe brain and behavioral deficits that rats experience after two months of daily skin applications with DEET and permethrin, another common insecticide. [His] studies examined the effects of each drug alone and in combination. In each study, the treated animals initially appeared to be normal, just like the control group, said Abou-Donia. But when challenged with neurobehavioral tasks that required muscle control, strength and coordination, the rats demonstrated serious impairments.

Moreover, a detailed analysis of their brains clearly showed that large numbers of brain cells were dying within three critical brain structures: the cerebral cortex, which controls muscles and movement; the hippocampal formation, which controls memory, learning and concentration; and the cerebellum, which synchronizes body movements. In addition, many of the surviving brain cells showed signs of degeneration and damage consistent with the presence of harmful byproducts called oxygen free radicals (also known as reactive oxygen species), which can damage DNA and cell membranes in the brain and the nervous system. The most severe brain cell changes and sensorimotor deficits were seen among rats exposed to combinations of DEET, permethrin and the anti-nerve gas agent pyridostigmine.

The take home message is to be safe and cautious when using insecticides,” said Abou-Donia. “Never use insect repellents on infants, and be wary of using them on children in general. Never combine insecticides with each other or use them with other medications. Even so simple a drug as an antihistamine could interact with DEET to cause toxic side effects. Don’t spray your yard for bugs and then take medications. Until we have more data on potential interactions in humans, safe is better than sorry.” [11]

Let’s Put these Studies Together

I want to roll the preceding studies into a simple package to highlight the depth of the threat of DEET in combination with naled and other pesticides.

Naled, the pesticide sprayed over Miami is a carbamate pesticide. [12]

DEET inhibits cholinesterase. Cholinesterase is released into the tiny gap between nerve cells to stimulate muscles into action. [13] If this is inhibited by DEET, then the insect or the human being will experience the death of neurons in the brain that control muscle movement, learning, memory and concentration. [14]

Acetylcholinesterase is released at nerve junctions to stop the stimulatory action of cholinesterase. If this is inhibited, then muscles will continue to be stimulated until the insect or person dies. Carbamate pesticides and organophosphate pesticides are acetylcholinesterase inhibitors. They kill in the same way as military nerve gas. [15]

So, as government agencies spray pesticides over our cities and rural counties, they are delivering chemicals that function like military nerve gas. The chemicals kill by inhibiting normal nerve activity. If the people who are sprayed with agents such as naled are also using DEET in their bug repellent, then both children and adults are being set up for intensified reactions to these chemicals and serious health problems may eventually follow. Pregnant women who have been sprayed with naled and other pesticides, who also use DEET, and who eat conventionally grown food are at the highest risk for having babies born with microcephaly. The Zika virus will have nothing to do with these developmental birth defects, but it will probably be blamed.

As explained in my previous articles, Zika still has not been scientifically proven to cause microcephaly. However, the combination of DEET and pesticides have been scientifically shown to damage the health of all people including babies in the womb. If you have DEET in your blood, and you have pesticides in your blood even in small amounts, your neurological activity is being impaired. Don’t be surprised if you can’t think clearly and make decisions. It’s probably not a senior moment. It may be a chemical reaction in your body that is killing your brain cells.

New Generation Zika Vaccines can Change Human DNA

While the CDC and the mainstream news media are telling people to use DEET, and various government agencies are spraying people with naled and other pesticides, the U.S. National Institute of Health (NIH) is telling us about the new Zika vaccine they are developing. The technology in this vaccine is potentially even more harmful than the naled/DEET combination.

The U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) describes the latest generation vaccine technology that they are using in their phase I vaccine trials for Zika. Their August 2016 press release stated:

The investigational Zika vaccine includes a small, circular piece of DNA — called a plasmid — that scientists engineered to contain genes that code for proteins of the Zika virus. When the vaccine is injected into the arm muscle, cells read the genes and make Zika virus proteins, which self-assemble into virus-like particles. The body mounts an immune response to these particles, including neutralizing antibodies and T cells. DNA vaccines do not contain infectious material — so they cannot cause a vaccinated individual to become infected with Zika — and have been shown to be safe in previous clinical trials for other diseases. [16]

It is easy to summarize the NIH August 3, 2016 propaganda statement in a few words, “Our new vaccine is safe and effective!”

However, other scientists who are not controlled by the NIH and the CDC have grave reservations about this new vaccine technology.

I asked independent scientist and consultant Dr. Judy Mikovits, Ph.D., and Dr. Stephanie Seneff, Ph.D., a senior research scientist with the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory to share their thoughts about the new NIH vaccine.

Dr. Mikovits stated:

Vaccines that contain Virus Like Particles (VLPs) are extremely dangerous. Currently there are two VLP vaccines being used, (although many are in development as this is the technology of choice despite what we have learned about their inherent danger), which are for Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) and Hepatitis B virus (HBV). Both of these are manufactured in cell lines contaminated with mouse leukemia virus (MLV) and other lab contaminants including the possibility of Borrelia. None of these viral contaminates can be cleaned out of the vaccines – even the FDA admits this.

The plasmids in the new NIH vaccine can recombine and be packaged with the MLV envelope sequences and proteins, which by themselves can CAUSE Myalgic Encephalomyelitis or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, vasculitis and cancer. It is possible for the plasmids to recombine in this way to create novel infectious retroviruses. [17]

Dr. Seneff stated:

I can see the appeal of this kind of vaccine because there’s no live virus and it seems like a “minimalistic” approach.

I bet they figured out that it would be relatively easy to produce a Zika vaccine using the same technology that they used for the West Nile vaccine BEFORE they started building a case for Zika and microcephaly. I bet they were looking for a way to make Zika seem a lot scarier to the public so that people would readily embrace a new Zika vaccine. Great marketing!

I think the biggest worry is the potential to cause autoimmune disease through molecular mimicry. It is not normal for cells to be exposed to CpG in DNA that’s not methylated.

Moreover, DNA vaccines themselves possess their own adjuvant activity because of the presence of unmethylated CpG motifs in particular base contents.

There’s also the issue of intramuscular delivery [of the vaccine] by gene gun delivery. Gene guns apparently damage the tissues and induce a Th2 type response.

I think they’re looking for Th2 as a sign of the development of antibodies, but this is a catch 22 because you can also get autoantibodies through molecular mimicry, I would think. [18]

New NIH Vaccine — Safe and Effective?

Dr. Mikovits and Dr. Seneff are raising serious issues, which should be studied by the scientific community. They are concerned about a whole host of new health problems which may develop in people who take this vaccine.

The vaccine approval process will be done as quickly as possible. If this vaccine is approved it could be ready for worldwide distribution in two years. The NIH and Big Pharma will not do any type of long term studies to confirm or reject the concerns raised by Dr. Mikovits and Dr. Seneff. Big Pharma and CDC/NIH scientists don’t do long term studies. They are only interested in looking for adverse reactions that take place a very short time after injection. Their long-term view is less than a year, and in that case, they are only monitoring the presence of Zika antibodies.

Selenium could make Zika Vaccines Obsolete

In a study published in July of 2016, scientists at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, reported that the inclusion of the trace mineral selenium in female mice who were nursing their pups was able to reverse neurological deficits in the pups even though they had been genetically modified to have the deficiencies. They also noted that the presence of the trace mineral selenium is a necessary part of the body’s system for responding to RNA viruses such as Zika. [19]

The implications of this research is stunning, given the fact that between 500 million and one billion people in the world have a serious selenium deficiency, and many more lack an adequate level of selenium to prevent heart disease, cancer, and retroviral diseases such as HIV. [20]

Selenium is an essential cofactor of glutathione peroxidase. Twenty-five selenoprotein-encoding genes have been identified, all of which contain selenocysteine — made from selenium. Selenoproteins have diverse roles throughout the body. They act as antioxidants, modulators of immune function, detoxification agents for heavy metals and xenobiotics, and are necessary for thyroid hormone metabolism. Selenium is essential to human health, and the antioxidant activity (or lack thereof) of specific selenoproteins is of particular interest in diseases of the central nervous system. In short, a lack of selenium deprives dozens of chemical processes in the body, which effect brain activity, and which can lead to severe mental retardation, spasticity, and microencephaly. [21]

If we put all this information together, then it is possible to conclude that the cases of microcephaly in Brazil could be caused by selenium deficiency. It appears from the data that if selenium levels are normal, then the human immune system should be able to handle contact with the Zika virus. It also appears that a selenium deficiency all by itself could cause microcephaly in the babies of pregnant women. It also appears that supplementing the diet of new mothers while they are nursing, can restore proper levels of selenium in their babies, and even if they have neurological damage, the selenium could potentially restore the brain to normal functioning.

If all this is true, then there is no need for a Zika vaccine. All we need to do is give pregnant women and nursing women a bioavailable form of selenium or teach them to eat selenium rich foods.

Dr. Mercola offers these suggestions for acquiring selenium. He stated:

Good food sources of selenium include:

  • Brazil nuts (which average about 70 to 90 micrograms per nut)
  • Sardines
  • Wild-caught Alaskan salmon
  • Pastured organic eggs
  • Sunflower seeds
  • Pasture-raised organic chicken and turkey
  • Liver (lamb or beef)
  • Chia seeds
  • Mushrooms

In the U.S., selenium levels in soil tend to be relatively high (northern Nebraska and the Dakotas have soil that is especially high in selenium). However, in other areas such as China, Russia, Australia, New Zealand and Europe, soil levels of selenium tend to be much lower, and if you eat food primarily grown in these areas, a high-quality selenium supplement may be beneficial.

Even parts of the U.S. have been identified as selenium-deficient regions, including:

  • The Pacific Northwest
  • Parts of the Great Lakes region and east of it toward New England
  • Parts of the Atlantic Coast

If you live in one of these areas and focus your diet on locally grown foods, you may be low in selenium. You may also have low levels of selenium if you smoke cigarettes, drink alcohol, have had weight loss surgery, or have Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis. If you choose to take a selenium supplement for health maintenance, you should use it in a high-quality bioavailable form in a low dose (such as 200 mcg). [22]

Conclusion

In the era of Hitler and Stalin, fluoride was used to make prisoners docile. They put it in the drinking water. Many communities in the U.S. are also putting fluoride in the public water supply to supposedly help children have fewer cavities. They don’t mention that this strategy is also having a pacifying effect on people of all ages when they drink the water.

Fluoride that is in water and in many of the psychoactive drugs so popular today is a constant drain on selenium in the body. Selenium is used to excrete fluoride. However, if fluoride levels are high then selenium will be depleted by the toxic load of fluoride.

If you don’t drink fluoridated water, because you have a private water source or a high end water filter, or you live in a community that has chosen not to fluoridate the water, then there is another way for government agencies to pacify public reactivity. They can tell the public that there is a horrible infection that is spreading through the community by ravenous mosquitoes, and they should apply DEET to themselves and their children. In addition, it is absolutely necessary to spray the entire region with naled to kill the mosquitoes, which are supposedly threatening carnage to babies in the womb.

The bug repellent and the pesticides will short circuit the activities of the human nervous system giving people brain fog and making them docile. It will cause some babies to develop microcephaly. It will cause some babies to develop autism. It will cause some children to develop cancer.

The new Zika vaccine from the National Institute of Health uses technology that is similar to the HPV vaccine. When the NIH vaccine goes into distribution we can expect to see many new cases of chronic illness develop for the people who take the multiple dose regiment of the Zika vaccine. Dr. Mikovits told us that the HPV vaccine is also a manufactured DNA type vaccine. The HPV vaccine is currently ravaging the target population of young girls and boys in the U.S. and around the world. It is causing 10% of them to have serious vaccine reactions. [23]

We can only imagine what will happen when the same kind of vaccine technology is used for the Zika virus and it is given to the entire population instead of only teens.

If you want to protect yourself from Zika, then make sure you have adequate selenium in your diet. Eat selenium rich foods or take a supplement such as selenomethionine. Pregnant women will do more to protect the health of their babies by consuming organic food and adequate amounts of selenium than they will by spraying DEET on their bodies and spraying their homes and yards with mosquito killing pesticides. Zika is not the enemy – mosquitoes are not the enemy – it is poor nutrition and pesticides that cause harm. The high-carbohydrate low-fat diet, pesticides, genetically modified food, and nutrient deficiencies are destroying our health and the health of our babies. Please don’t buy the conclusions of the Zika propaganda masters and worry about Zika, which does not cause serious illness or microcephaly. Take hold of the things you can control such as your diet and start enjoying greater health.
