Preparing For Zika: Really?

Startling New Mosquito News With Lyme's Disease
Kris Kristofferson has been battling memory loss for several years, but his condition has taken a marked turn for the better due to a surprising new diagnosis.

"But after years of taking medications that had multiple side effects and did not seem to be helping very much, Kristofferson has made remarkable strides recently, after doctors decided to test him for Lyme disease. The tests were positive, and since undergoing treatment for Lyme disease, “All of a sudden he was back,” his wife, Lisa, says. She adds that he still has some bad days, but “some days he’s perfectly normal and it’s easy to forget that he is even battling anything.”"

Roanoke Times, 5-30-2016: Tech researchers help officials prepare for Zika.

Obama is requesting $1.8 Billion to fight Zika without presenting any credible plan that defines the who, what, when, where or how the “fight” is to be conducted. What could possibly go awry with that approach. 
Remember the Obama nonexistent “shovel ready” jobs!

Since the demise of DDT, government, businesses and individuals have been powerless to contain mosquitoes and ticks that have taken millions of lives in third-world countries and caused major health issues in the US.

Roanoke Times, 1-27-2016, Pg 3: Zika virus outbreak spreading-
The ticks and mosquitoes are winning the battle of biological warfare!
We destroyed our only defensive weapon: DDT Good Luck with that move!
-
The massive loss of life, especially children, in the third-world from ticks and mosquitoes is devastating. Over one-million children die each year from malaria transmitted by mosquitoes.
-
In the US; Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, Lymes and Alpha Gale are widely spread by ticks causing major health issues for millions.
-
Encephalitis, transmitted by mosquitoes, and now the Zika virus has recently invaded the US and is a major danger to babies.
-
Knee-jerk reactions to challenges can have devastating adverse consequences.

Repeat of Dec 2014 blog item this subject:
Ebola Conflict With Malaria?
http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2014/12/ebola-conflict-with-malaria.html
We, the people of the US, condemned over one million third world children to die from malaria each year by killing DDT (the only real mosquito and tick killer).
That ban was based on the results of massive faulty application processes, in many cases by government agencies. Instead of fixing the real problem, we did a government knee-jerk solution! How sad is that!
A pitiful news story several years ago was about President Bush delivering bed-cover-netting to Africa to address the malaria pandemic.
-
In addition to the malaria issue, we have significant health issues right here in Virginia with Lyme, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever and Alpha Gale tick borne diseases. Look at the tick spray you buy – it’s a so called “repellant”, it doesn’t kill anything and doesn’t really repel anything, but the diseases can greatly impact your health.

One Million Malaria Deaths Each Year: The Unintended Consequences Of Good Intentions
-
“A prime example of this is the Rachael Carson DDT ban which has led to over one million malaria deaths each year for over 20 years in third world countries. No one was ever identified as getting ill from DDT and clearly a major focus on responsible application would have been a responsible first and probably only required action. Interestingly, it was primarily government agencies that were irresponsible in how they were doing DDT applications.”

By Kate Kelland, Reuters, Dec. 17, 2012: Global malaria battle stalls as financing gets tight.
Malaria is caused by a parasite carried in the saliva of mosquitoes and kills hundreds of thousands of people a year, mainly babies and children under the age of five in Africa.
"Vector control" means stopping transmission of the disease with tools such as treated mosquito nets.

REALLY? How’s that working out for the one-million children that die each year?

-
If one million Americans (most of them children) died each year for 20 years from malaria one can be sure that the DDT factories would be turned back on, that proper and prudent application processes would be established and that “we” wouldn’t just be giving parents “nets” to put over their children’s beds!
