As you may have heard, the Zika virus has made its way to the U.S. This virus is a major issue for pregnant women and their babies, as it can cause birth defects. It's also a concern for anyone with a severely compromised immune system, as it can cause Guillain-Barré syndrome, a form of temporary paralysis. While the virus is clearly a threat, it's possible the solution proposed to fight the virus could be even worse.
In fact, the solution they've chosen to fight the virus can cause the exact same problems the virus can cause.
Right now, the Zika virus outbreak is focused primarily in Miami. Miami and the surrounding city governments have decided to spray an insecticide over neighborhoods to kill the mosquitos and quell public fears. The common name for the insecticide they're using is "Naled." This is an organophosphate chemical. And if you read the warnings for this insecticide, you'll quickly see that it can cause health problems that are not all that different than Zika's effects. Actually, it could be much worse.
The Centers for Disease Control doesn't think Zika is a big deal for most people. According to the CDC website: “Many people infected with Zika virus won't have symptoms or will have only mild symptoms.... People usually don't get sick enough to go to the hospital, and they very rarely die of Zika.” Even though its primary risk is for pregnant women, their risk really isn't that high, as most children will be fine. However, no mom wants to expose her child to any risk if at all possible.

Now look at the potential health problems caused by Naled: respiratory problems, hypotension, incontinence, gastrointestinal disorders, blurred vision, and excessive sweating. More severe cases can cause tremors, seizures, coma, convulsions, paralysis, cancers of the thyroid, breasts, ovaries, esophagus, kidneys and colon, leukemia, and even death. The list is even longer than Zika. What's more, people exposed to Zika have life-time immunity from the virus. But further exposure to Naled will only make your problems worse.
Naled also causes a lot more problems than Zika. It not only affects humans negatively, but it's also highly toxic for fish, birds, and beneficial insects, especially bees.
I've detailed in the past how pesticides are likely one of the contributing factors in many neuro-degenerative disorders, including Parkinson's disease.
So if you live in an area that's spraying for the Zika virus, you need to take steps to avoid the toxins. If you can leave the area for a while, consider doing so. If you can't, then make sure you're taking something to remove the pesticide from your body. The only formula I know that can do that is PectaSol Detox Formula. Studies have shown that it can remove the dangerous chemicals in pesticides from your body.
