Is a Larvacide responsible or the Zika Virus?
A large group of physians in Brazil claim the pesticide pyriproxyfen is responsible for for microcephaly, small heads on newborns. This pesticide is used to treat drinking water. Although it is an approved pesticide, over 4000 cases of microcephaly have been reported in areas where the Zika virus is widespread. It is also possible the pesticide is reacting with a reagent or some other chemical used in water treatment.
The mosquito spreading Zika is a common household mosquito, which has not caused this problem before. People are calling asking for antiviral help. First, use a mosquito repellent. AromaHealth offers Stop Insects. Next, an adult antiviral is Viral Escape. These should be used in coastal areas or traveling to countries affected and near affected areas.
