The microcephaly outbreak in Brazil, which coincided with the spread of the Zika virus, continues to stun the world, even months after the incident was first reported.Latin American Doctors Suggest Monsanto-Linked Larvicide Cause of Microcephaly, Not Zika Virus » Page 2 of 2
Pregnant women all over the world have been advised to take caution. The Zika virus infection has been linked to newborn babies with the birth defect microcephaly. This is a congenital condition in which babies are born with unusually tiny heads.
The notion, however, has recently been challenged by a group of Argentine physicians. The group suspects that the Zika virus is not to blame for the rise in microcephaly cases, but that a toxic larvicide introduced into Brazil's water supplies may be the real culprit.
Not A Coincidence?
According to the Physicians in Crop-Sprayed Towns (PCST), a chemical larvicide that produces malformations in mosquitoes was injected into Brazil's water supplies in 2014 in order to stop the development of mosquito larvae in drinking water tanks.
The chemical, which is known as Pyriproxyfen, was used in a massive government-run program tasked to control the mosquito population in the country. Pyriproxyfen is a larvicide manufactured by Sumitomo Chemical, a company associated [PDF] with Monsanto. However, PCST has referred to Sumitomo as a subsidiary of Monsanto.
However, GM Watch has cited a report from Abrasco, an organization of Brazilian doctors and public health researchers, that links the pesticide to the abnormality. GM Watch wrote:Larvicide now proposed as cause of microcephaly outbreak, not Zika virus | Examiner.com
Abrasco also names Pyriproxyfen as a likely cause of the microcephaly. It condemns the strategy of chemical control of Zika-carrying mosquitoes, which it says is contaminating the environment as well as people and is not decreasing the numbers of mosquitoes. Abrasco suggests that this strategy is in fact driven by the commercial interests of the chemical industry, which it says is deeply integrated into the Latin American ministries of health, as well as the World Health Organization and the Pan American Health Organization.
In an article authored by Alyssa Navarro of Tech Time on Feb. 14, 2016 titled “Larvicide Manufactured By Sumitomo, Not Zika Virus, True Cause Of Brazil’s Microcephaly Outbreak: Doctors”. Doctors from Argentina provided the data that had them reach the conclusion that the main cause of the deformity is the larvicide. The director of Brazil's health ministry has conducted an initial investigation that showed about 33% of the microcephaly cases occurred concurrently with the Zika virus. This brings the US scientists' conclusion that the larvicide is not the cause of microcephaly into serious doubt. It is going to take some time to sort this out.Watch:
Doctors from Argentina formed a group Physicians in Crop-Sprayed Towns (PCST) that determined that the cause of the microcephaly in newborn babies was a larvicide put into the drinking water tanks and reservoirs in several states in Brazil. 35% of the total cases of microcephaly in Brazil occurred in Pernambuco, one of the most mosquito infested states in Brazil. The major campaign in Brazil to kill the mosquitoes (Aedes aegypti mosquito, which carries the Zika virus,) occurred in 2014.
The PCST doctors concluded that during past Zika epidemics in Columbia, no cases of microcephaly were linked with the Zika virus. The Zika virus is highly contagious, with up to 75% of the population infected by the Zika virus where mosquito outbreaks have occurred. Despite high rates of Zika virus infection, the number of microcephaly cases were very low in Columbia. The recent outbreak of microcephaly in Brazil is unexplained at this point.

A group of Argentine physicians have publicly questioned the cause of the outbreak of microcephaly in Brazil, is it the Zika virus or something else? The group is claiming that Monsanto is to blame for the outbreak NOT the Zika virus. Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks breaks it down.
