CDC Willing to Spend $806,000 on Cartoon (Instead of Zika Research)

Soon the leaders of the WHO, CDC, and Health Canada will be resigning. And I'm not surprised. The evidence they have been ignoring from the scientific community for over a year should be causing them great unrest. The public has only been told half-truths and have not been given all of the information you deserve. Now, in a move I deem as unacceptable as the WHO partnering with the IOC, the CDC is throwing almost a million dollars at PBS to produce just one episode about Zika for kids. Meanwhile, on the other side of the globe, Zika is spreading unabated; a likely reservoir host (which could be amplifying the virus) is a pet, being played with by children.

Egos: The Real Reason Scientists are Unable to Solve Zika Mysteries

Once I researched Wolbachia some more, I realized there has been a dangerous precedent already set in motion in California, Brazil, Columbia, Indonesia, Vietnam, and Australia. Two separate research teams found Culex infected by a specific type of Wolbachia caused a totally unexpected result: an increase in West Nile and malaria infections. Culex already harbor Wolbachia, however, there are numerous strains of this bacteria. Since the WHO has finally admitted that Culex are also a vector of Zika, I felt it was prudent for Florida (and other regions of the world) to be aware of the risks involved with Wolbachia-based mosquito control and to test out whether local Culex - that will eventually acquire it naturally from the Wolbachia-infected Aedes - will become (or are already) a more worrisome vector of the Zika virus.

Zika: The Warnings About Wolbachia and Culex Our Health Authorities are Ignoring

Over the past few days, I've been shocked to see and hear obvious attempts to downplay Zika's similarities to West Nile virus. And what I discovered sent chills up my spine. It's possible that a seemingly harmless mosquito control method (using the bacterium Wolbachia) could enhance the Zika virus in Culex mosquitoes. And Culex have finally been acknowledged as a vector of Zika (by the WHO). In California and Florida, Culex mosquitoes are everywhere. And it appears that dangerous decisions have been (and are being) made by our public health authorities that we can never undo.

Mosquito Bed Nets Should Be Recommended by Public Health Authorities

Looks like our public health authorities (WHO, CDC, NIH, and Health Canada) are failing to recommend mosquito bed nets to the public despite the fact that (at least) six research teams have found nighttime-active Culex spp. to be Zika vectors. I've been alerting the Canadian government since 2016. But, mainstream media and those employed to protect human health are dead silent. And, it's not only mosquitoes we have to worry about. Ticks are becoming a worrisome vector of diseases in North America. This week, I found a mosquito bed net that I felt was worthy enough to share with you. Those who sleep outdoors should consider this one.

Test North Atlantic Right Whales for WNV, SLEV, ZIKV and Wolbachia

What I predicted in 2016 appears to be coming true, unfortunately. I believe North Atlantic right whales are suffering from Zika infections along with Wolbachia infections via their food supply. Calanus finmarchicus (Cal fin) comprises 1/3 Aedes aegypti. And krill also contains both Aedes aegypti and Culex (both Zika vectors). In this post, I spell out which tests desperately need to be conducted on North Atlantic right whales (including a newer, safer, more reliable method for extracting eye fluids). Bottom line: the richest people on the planet might be responsible for this and (if so) they should be held accountable. They have the money to rectify it.

Why Are We Asking Bill Gates About the Next Pandemic?

I think Bill Gates has tinkered enough with human health. An editorial in the Indian Journal of Medical Ethics linked 47,500 new cases of non-polio AFP [Acute Flaccid Paralysis] to Bill and Melinda Gates' polio vaccines. I haven't delved into the polio claims, but in the case of Zika, I feel strongly that Bill Gates has blindly plunged ahead into dangerous territory promoting Wolbachia-infected mosquitoes. I just hope it's not too late to restore ecological balances in areas where these releases have been carried out.

An Open Letter to Dr. Margaret Chan, Director-General of WHO

It's infuriating to know that for a year, the WHO has known that Culex mosquitoes are vectors of the Zika virus. Even worse: a study by Guo et al. in September has been completely ignored. The citizens of southeast Asia should have been informed so that they could modify their mosquito eradication efforts. However, Dr. Margaret Chan has proclaimed her decisions to be right all along. She even wrote: "Like every other explosive outbreak, Zika revealed fault lines in the world's collective preparedness." But, rather than rely on scientific data, she even entertained conspiracies (like a chemical). Wolbachia is responsible for the most widespread pandemics in the animal kingdom (LePage and Bordenstein, 2013). Bill Gates and four governments are funding Wolbachia-infected mosquito releases and the WHO endorses it. We must find a way to stop more releases and allow independent researchers to investigate (before it's too late). Wolbachia can never be taken back.

Wolbachia-Infected Mosquitoes Might Reduce Dengue, Enhance Zika, and Cause a Million Souls to Become Sterile

The carelessness of our public health authorities over the Zika virus has disappointed me immensely this past year. And just when I thought there would be some signs of remorse, WHO's director-general, Dr. Margaret Chan, blamed the vector control strategies of countries in southeast Asia. Meanwhile, she has known since February 2016 that Culex mosquitoes were also a likely Zika vector that require entirely different eradication methods. But even worse: Wolbachia-infected Aedes mosquitoes have been released in various regions of the world for the past six years. And while Wolbachia in Aedes may not be transmitted to humans; Culex mosquitoes are capable of acquiring it and transmitting it. Culex are able to infect humans with filarial worms infected with Wolbachia. And Wolbachia seem to play an inordinate role in diseases. For weeks I pored over studies and found to my utter shock that Culex with Zika and Wolbachia could be responsible for some of the most devastating outcomes for human life.

Another Mosquito Carries Zika: The Proof Health Authorities and Media are Ignoring

In March 2016, disease experts came away from the Summit on Controlling Aedes aegypti in Maceio, Brazil completely unsure of which vectors were responsible for the spread of the Zika virus. Dr. Fiona Hunter, one of few medical entomologists in Canada, told the Globe and Mail in March (2016), "The fact that there are no data as far as I can tell that Aedes aegypti is driving this Zika epidemic just flabbergasts me." After conducting my own search, I discovered that there was - and still is - huge pressure within the scientific and medical community (and in mainstream media) to keep the sole focus on two types of Aedes mosquitoes. I'm unsure why the WHO, CDC, and Health Canada are ignoring crucial data, but they are failing in their duties to protect public health. In this article, I walk you through what I've uncovered.

Zika and Its Path: What Our Public Health Authorities Are Hiding

If a vaccine - over 20 years in the making - had the potential to cause a deadly cross-enhancement of the Zika virus whenever the Culex species of mosquitoes transmitted it, would the WHO and CDC try to keep that a secret? What if billions of dollars were at stake? I am completely unnerved by the actions of the CDC, WHO, and Health Canada. And I can't help shake this feeling there is more we are not being told. I walk you through some hunches and provide you with proof that (I hope) will cause you to ask more questions of our public health authorities.

More Proof: Wolbachia-Infected Mosquito Releases Might Be Causing the Most Devastating Zika Infections

The WHO ignored the early warnings in February 2016 about the Culex genus of mosquitoes and now Zika is spreading throughout the poorest regions of the globe. Our public health authorities failed to contain the virus and repeatedly downplayed or ignored crucial scientific facts. Culex mosquitoes in Brazil and China are spreading Zika (which means birds are likely reservoir hosts). What's worse: Wolbachia that is acquired by any species after (or perhaps along with) a Zika infection is probably enhanced by Wolbachia. Bottom line: Wolbachia-infected mosquito releases are likely at the root of this global pandemic and their detrimental impact to humans (and other vertebrate species) must be investigated by independent researchers.

Dr. Francis M. Jiggins: You Asked, "How Does Wolbachia Do What It Does?"

For almost two years, I've been researching Zika. After writing about seven or eight articles, I came to the conclusion that Wolbachia is the unspoken co-factor. Recently, I found a paper by Dr. Francis M. Jiggins that openly asks: "How does Wolbachia do what it does?" And, I decided to compile answers (or partial answers) to what he is rightfully questioning. And, it's refreshing that someone in the scientific community is curious because what we are told is helping our dengue and Zika outbreaks (Wolbachia-infected Aedes releases) is ACTUALLY crashing crucial ecosystems and causing human illnesses.

Why We Need to Investigate Wolbachia-Infected Mosquito Releases

Some scientists have sold their souls, apparently. After reading a study that blamed El Niño for the spread of Zika, I couldn't help but delve deeper into what Wolbachia-infected mosquitoes might be doing to humans. And as I researched further, it became clear why Culex mosquitoes have been dismissed as Zika vectors: Wolbachia-infected Aedes mosquito releases are heavily funded by four governments (including Bill Gates). And they could be causing more harm than good.

A Crime Against Humanity: How the CDC and WHO Are Promoting the Global Spread of Zika

After compiling months of research, I have grown completely disgusted with how our public health authorities (the WHO, CDC, and Health Canada) have been addressing the Zika crisis. They are employed by us, taxpayers, to protect all citizens (including pregnant women and their babies) from diseases. In the very least (without a cure or vaccine in sight) they should be mitigating the spread of disease. What that means is: travel restrictions, prophylactic spraying of aircraft and shipping containers, and screening large groups of people coming from Zika-endemic areas (such as prisoners from Puerto Rico). What's more, since the spring, crucial research has been completely ignored by public health authorities. I firmly believe that both Aedes aegypti and Culex mosquitoes (which are prevalent almost everywhere in the world) can transmit the Zika virus to humans.

9 Reasons El Niño Did NOT Cause Zika to Spread

It's déjà vu: another UK study pointing to the weather - instead of the WHO and CDC - as the reason the Zika virus is spreading. Early in 2016, Wellcome Trust and Oxford U scientists (funded by Bill Gates and others) assured us there was a miniscule chance of anyone becoming infected with the Zika virus at the Rio Summer Olympics. Now, instead of acknowledging grave ommissions and a lack of accountability we are told to blame nature. Fortunately, it seems the public at large is becoming wise to this ruse.

Tracing Zika's Path to Florida, Culex, and Wolbachia

The case for the Culex genus of mosquitoes as Zika vectors is becoming stronger. Aedes prefer to live indoors and never stray far from people. So, it was a surprise to learn that Florida's Zika outbreak stemmed from about 30 cruise ship passengers. What's more, evidence is mounting that Wolbachia-infected mosquitoes are not effective in the long-term and may even enhance viral infection. Problem is: Wolbachia can never be taken back. Is it too late to restore critical ecosystems? I don't know, but more Wolbachia-infected mosquito releases are set to take place in Florida, India, Selangor, Vietnam, New Caledonia, Rio de Janeiro (Brazil), and Medellin (Columbia).

How Bill Gates Managed to Fool Us All

After reading 100s of scientific papers and following the science, I am 99 percent certain that the common Culex spp. of mosquito is one of the deadliest vectors of emerging Wolbachia (rickettsial) infections. And Wolbachia is also a reproductive parasite. Sadly, it appears the North American scientific community is funded (or rather, controlled) by Bill Gates. Not only does he invest in Wolbachia, he funded the two studies that claim it's safe enough to use, and he funds many people in positions of power and influence. Now that about 60 percent of Western men are suffering huge drops in sperm counts, this should be a wake-up call to the entire medical and scientific communities around the globe. Instead, it's all ignored. There is dead silence.

Wolbachia-Infected Aedes: An Ill-Fated Experiment in French Polynesia

Scientists are getting closer to pinpointing precisely what made Zika such a devastating neurological disease. And the latest findings, just this week, seem to confirm my worst fear: Zika is behaving like a bacteriophage, most likely within the Culex species of mosquitoes. Sadly, much of the media, politicians, (and even doctors) are continuing to tout Aedes as the only vectors of Zika. Wolbachia is not even mentioned as a co-factor. We need to look at recent findings because bacteria always evolve to ensure its survival.

The Link Between Uveal Melanoma, Non-Hodgkin's B-Cell Lymphoma, and Wolbachia

I am still baffled that no one appears willing (in North America) to conduct a a broad range PCR screen for infection by Rickettsiales (Wolbachia genes detected in blood) before determining that a patient has uveal melanoma or non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. We have documented proof of a patient who recovered from non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (in 2015) once his Wolbachia infection was treated. And in this case, there was no trace of the nematode worm that emits it. Instead, we are told, "Since the causes are not understood, there is no known way of preventing this disease." Now that the EPA is allowing MosquitoMate to release Wolbachia-infected Aedes males into the environment in 20 U.S. states, we had better take notice of the uptick in rare cancers (like uveal melanoma and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma) and demand that humans be tested for Wolbachia infections. Because there are treatment options: azithromycin, doxycycline, minocycline, or rifampicin. Some of these, I believe, can even be taken in combination.

Zika Cases Emerging From the Olympics

While mainstream media and Olympic partners were proclaiming that the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro were Zika-free, I uncovered a disturbing public health department policy, a complete lack of Zika virus screening, and an information guide (given to athletes) by one Rio Olympic team doctor which included false and misleading statements. Honestly, I doubt we will ever know the true count of Zika cases acquired at the Olympics by athletes, tourists, or others. And sadly, the CDC appears to be ignoring regions that are highly vulnerable to epidemics of Zika. Largely in part because they refuse to acknowledge proof that Culex mosquitoes are also a vector of the Zika virus.
