Allegations made by the government and establishment media that birth defects in the form of microcephaly in the Americas are caused by the Zika virus are quickly waning.
Doctors in Brazil are “quietly acknowledging” that Zika may not be responsible for causing birth defects after all.
“We suspect that something more than Zika virus is causing the high intensity and severity of cases,” Fatima Marinho, director of information and health analysis at Brazil’s Health Ministry told the journal Nature in a late July interview.
Research conducted by the New England Complex Systems Institute found extremely low occurrences of birth defects among Colombian women infected with the Zika virus, meaning there must be another cause.
New study finds no cases of microcephaly among pregnant women infected with Zika
The study observed 12,000 pregnant women living in Colombia infected with the virus, and none of them gave birth to a baby with microcephaly.
Life News reports:
“Four cases of microcephaly were reported with women who didn’t have Zika symptoms and were not part of the study, which is consistent with the normal expected number of cases.
“Based on estimated numbers there should be about 60,000 pregnant women in Colombia with the Zika virus, yet there are hardly any cases of microcephaly. If the link to Zika is legitimate, there should have been a dramatic increase in the number of babies with microcephaly.”
Could it be that the fears over Zika were perpetuated to invoke profits for several key industries?
