There is a push to curb the mosquito population in order to lessen instances of West Nile disease in the US. The main way many counties have dealt with this issue is by spraying vast swathes of land with the bug-killer du jour.
Organophosphate pesticide exposure from working fields in Southen California was a hot topic on my college campus in 1982. Many farm workers would develop strange symptoms – droopy face, inability to use a hand or arm. They would also die in their forties.
And we help them out when we attempt to keep our lawns tidy with Roundup (glyphosate).
There has been a recent upsurge in similarly strange symptoms in children, specifically AFM – acute flaccid myelitis. What do these symptoms sound like to you? Your parents will most likely know. It is the loss of muscular control of the extremities leading to paralysis. This sure seems like that dreaded disease of the first half of the 20th century: polio. And I was taught we eradicated polio in my lifetime.
No one is downplaying the devastating effects of neuro-encepheletic diseases. I certainly have sympathy for any family touched by these diseases. Because we should all care about the increase in Autism, MS, ALS, Parkinsons, Meningitis, Lyme, Guillian-Barré, Muscular Dystrophy, systemic inflammatory conditions ( e.g., Arthritis, Fibromyalgia, CFS), respiratory illness, and AFM, etc. We need skilled technicians to examine the causes of these diseases, find similarities, and help us curb the use of toxins and nerve agents in our environment.
I believe the epidemic insurgence of these diseases is a combination of electromagnetic exposure and enviromental conditions conducive to a neuro-invasive presentation of an encephalitic pathogen.
We may see the resurgence of polio, perhaps with a different name. And it will be the result of toxin overload and electro-magnetic (radio frequency) exposure.
