I'm frustrated that no one is answering my questions about the safety of our food - as it pertains to the presence of radiation caused by the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster. Once I found out that the CFIA and FDA stopped testing for radiation in our food two years ago, I became even more concerned. Along the way, I blindly accepted the WHO's new acceptable residential level of radon - which is oddly one tenth what it was in 1996. These numbers and studies just don't add up.
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.
It's not surprising that since the Zika virus has been found in semen for over six months, the virus continues to replicate in the male reproductive tract. And in mice, it appears to wreck havoc - destroying not only stem cells and sperm - but the cells that provide support and structure to the testes. In just three weeks, the horrifying results were: a 90 percent reduction in testicle size, low testosterone levels, low fertility, and eventual sterility. Should these results be found in human studies, the message is clear: men, women, and children need to do everything possible to protect themselves from the Zika virus.
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.
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).
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 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.
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.
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.
Just when I thought Wolbachia-infected mosquito releases were a big coincidence in certain Zika-endemic regions of the world, the perfect reservoir is paired up with them. And this bird doesn't migrate; therefore, the poorest people in the world are once again the most vulnerable. What's worse: discovering outright lies by public health authorities and the omission of glaring scientific facts. Looking for Zika in birds is about as fundamental as plugging in your computer.
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.
No surprise: money is probably at the root of why the public (and many in the scientific community) are ignoring, omitting, or downplaying the fact that the Zika virus is found in birds. Forty-five years ago, 15 percent of birds studied in Uganda were found to be reservoir hosts of the Zika virus. That percentage would only increase as Zika has spread and mutated around the globe. And Culex are also vectors of the Zika virus (this has been proven by three independent research teams out of Brazil, China, and Canada). Those culpable for the most harmful strain of Zika may be the backers of Wolbachia-infected mosquito releases. The people involved include Bill and Melinda Gates and the following governments: UK Department for International Development, United States Agency for International Development through the Combating Zika and Future Threats Grand Challenge, Australian and Queensland governments, and the Brazilian government. With those deep pockets and power, it's no wonder why crucial studies and reports have magically disappeared from the internet.
It's dÃ©jÃ 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.
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.
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.
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.
I am increasingly becoming unnerved and alarmed by the striking correlations between Wolbachia-infected Aedes releases and life-threatening symptoms in young people. Even though the media isn't covering it, Culex spp. are Zika vectors. And in two of those Culex types - when they naturally acquired Wolbachia - became better vectors of West Nile virus and malaria. I highly suspect the same holds true for Zika. What every oncologist needs to know: Wolbachia can infect humans without any trace of the nematode that emits it. So, before removing eye balls or beginning any drastic form of treatment for lymphoma, you need to rule out (via a broad range PCR screen for infection by Rickettsiales), Wolbachia genes in the blood and tissues of these patients. We have strong antibiotics that can treat this infection.
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.
When various public health authorities and the media repeatedly said that the Zika virus is only in the bloodstream for a few days to a week, I wondered how that could be possible. Every week or two, a new finding revealed the Zika virus seems to hide in certain regions of the body - even becoming more virulent in some cases. So, I delved into how safe our blood supply is (both in the U.S. and Canada) and was completely floored by what appears to be systematic, intentional oversights by those who are trusted to ensure the safety of our blood supply.
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.
