Naled Invades Miami Beach

Planes are scheduled to begin spraying the controversial pesticide Naled over South Beach tomorrow morning, and that has activists worried the pesticide could do damage to humans and to the environment. On Tuesday that was when they announced they were going to spray Naled. There was a lot of outrage about that. First at noon, Zika emergency protesters gather outside Miami Beach City hall as commissioners discuss whether the city should fight the state’s aerial spraying plans. There was a town hall, town forum, basically a commission meeting but not an official meeting where any action could actually be done. Kudos to Commissioner Michael Grieco for taking a stand, organizing the whole town hall. Basically the outcome of that was the county mayor said alright out of concern for the children we are not going to spray Thursday, we’re going to spray Friday morning… Which makes no sense.

    What about the theories that Zika does not cause birth defects? It has been around a long time and the birth defects are actually caused by the pesticides! I guess all of the future birth defects will be blamed on the zika virus and they will never own up to the damage they have caused spraying all of these chemicals. As always…..

    This is stupid! The state officials are breathing this stuff in too! Zika has been around for decades and didn’t cause any problems until they started spraying and vaccinating pregnant moms in Brazil with Tdap. You think there are maybe too many toxins in the environment??

    I’ll bet that spray has more ingredients in it than what they’re saying.

    I think it is still important to get the information out – unfortunately they are spraying and letting go of genetically engineered mosquitos Thank you Oxitec This is indeed a crazy insane world and I believe it is important to speak your mind and share what you are learning – share what you know – speak with your neighbors and your family and your friends. Issues like vaccines and the obscene profits pHARMa is reaching for is crazy – and we don’t always know of the deceit of what is being done – under the rule of law. Be brave.

    It started when the water supply company in Brazil put a hormone interrupter pesticide in the water supply to prevent mosqueto larvey in the water supply tanks

    Where is the proof that Zika causes microcephaly? I have not seen any proof. The Zika virus has been around for a long time, and we are just recently hearing that it is causing microcephaly. It is more likely that microcephaly is caused by the larvicide that I had read was put into the drinking water in Brazil. I am very concerned that this pesticide, Naled, will harm humans as well as the environment.

    The Brazilian Dr that brought the sims issue to light has changed his opinion, and now has said he believes it is the pesticide used to kill the mosquito larvae that is the problem.
