Thousands of residents living in dozens of neighborhoods at the center of the “Big Apple” are the latest victims to be forcibly sprayed with toxic pesticides as part of the ongoing, nationwide propaganda circus involving West Nile virus (WNv). Reports indicate that thousands of Manhattanites and others living in Brooklyn and elsewhere have already begun to be doused with Anvil, a toxic insecticide chemical linked to endocrine disruption, liver damage, infertility, cognitive damage, and cancer, among other conditions.
As of this writing, the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene reports that there have been a mere 10 documented cases of West Nile Encephalitis or Meningitis in New York thus far in 2012 (http://www.nyc.gov/html/doh/html/wnv/wnvr1-2012.shtml), which is apparently enough to warrant mass chemical sprayings throughout Manhattan’s prestigious Upper West Side, Brooklyn’s South Side, Central Park, and elsewhere. The sprayings reportedly began on Friday, August 31, and have continued in the days that followed.
Anvil is safe, but it actually isn’t, say officials
New York officials have already come out claiming that Anvil poses “no significant risks to human health,” insisting all the while that mass ground sprayings are the best preventive measure the city can take to curb mosquito populations that might be harboring the much-feared disease. And yet in the same breath, officials also warned that “some individuals may experience health effects,” which has created much confusion throughout the city.
It turns out that not everyone was convinced from the start that blanketing large swaths of New York City in pesticides was a good idea, and many tried to protest the decision. But just like in Dallas, Texas, where similar aerial sprayings of pesticides recently took place (http://www.naturalnews.com), officials flatly ignored the concerns of the populace and proceeded forward with their plans to blast a known neurotoxin throughout New York City’s residential enclaves.
“We don’t need to poison our environment, kill off the mosquitoes’ natural predators, and cause long-term health problems,” said Mitchel Cohen, Coordinator of the group No Spray Coalition, to Windsor Terrace-Kensington Patch about the misguided spraying efforts. “And that’s exactly what these spray trucks are going to do.”
Activist and A.R.T.I.S.T. president Robert Lederman actually put together a comprehensive list of the Top 10 Lies About West Nile Virus and Anvil that explains how the side-effects associated with exposure to Anvil are often extreme, despite what authorities might claim. He also expounds upon why WNv is hardly the “deadly” disease that the mainstream media and federal health authorities continually claim it to be. (http://www.pesticidefreezone.org/top_10_lies.htm)
West Nile virus may not even exist
What is even more disturbing about all the WNv hysteria; however, is the fact that the disease itself may not even exist. Freelance investigative reporter Jon Rappoport recently wrote a piece about how there is no concrete scientific evidence proving that WNv is even a real disease, as it has never been isolated and examined. The symptoms associated with the disease that is currently being correlated with mosquito bites here in the U.S. are likely being caused by some other factor. (http://www.naturalnews.com)
One such possibility is that the individuals who are being diagnosed with WNv virus are actually suffering from exposure to environmental chemicals and air pollution. If this is the case, spraying Anvil as a supposed remedy will only make the problem worse, and potentially exacerbate the number of people who become ill or die from compounded chemical exposure.
