This article is an elaborate look at the recent Dengue-fever mitigation done by mass-dispensing of insecticide in some of our neighborhoods, especially in Chennai, early this monsoon (October).
The article is inspired by a certain anonymous WhatsApp forward which I decided to look into because it made sense to me (but not necessarily to all the people that I sent it to).
My perspective: it’s going to be yet another unhealthy scam of the Pharmaceutical Conspiracy umbrella.
I’m going to include an edited version of the WhatsApp article (on which this one is based) in bold below and subsequent research quotes are in italics:
Protect yourself from Lung & Skin Diseases
“Having blamed Aedes mosquito as a source of Dengu Fever and for it’s prevention, insecticides have been sprayed indiscriminately.”
(My note: I shall write another article on ‘Mosquitos and Dengue’, soon. Let me stick to why the insecticide is an inefficient and toxic solution.)
1) This is from a ‘medically authentic’ source which talks about dengue: http://www.who.int/denguecontrol/faq/en/index5.html
Who spreads dengue and severe dengue?
“Dengue is spread through the bite of the female mosquito (Aedes aegypti). The mosquito becomes infected when it takes the blood of a person infected with the virus. After about one week, the mosquito can then transmit the virus while biting a healthy person. The mosquito can fly up to 400 meters looking for water-filled containers to lay their eggs but usually remains close to the human habitation.”
“Aedes aegypti is a daytime feeder: The peak biting periods are early in the morning and in the evening before dusk.”
“Dengue cannot be spread directly from person to person. However, a person infected and suffering from dengue fever can infect other mosquitoes. Humans are known to carry the infection from one country to another or from one area to another during the stage when the virus circulates and reproduces in the blood system.”
“Aedes aegypti has evolved into an intermittent biter and prefers to bite more than one person during the feeding period. This mechanism has made Aedes aegypti a very highly efficient epidemic vector mosquito.”
2. At this point, let’s have a look at this passage from another article on the Immunity System from another medical website: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/PMH0072548/
How does the immune system work?
“The immune system (from the Latin word immunis, meaning: “free” or “untouched”) protects the body like a guardian from harmful influences from the environment and is essential for survival.”
(My note: I point out here that they mention ‘harmful influences from the environment’. Absorption through skin-pores isn’t a one-way valve. There’s a reason people go to spas.
And we’re not having much of a spa when the government corporation goes about spraying pesticide throughout our neighborhood.)
“It is made up of different organs, cells and proteins and aside from the nervous system, it is the most complex system that the human body has.”
(My reaction: They admit that the immune system is a ‘complex’ system. I’m not comfortable with the fact that the pharmacy is producing things to ‘amplify’ the function of something they confess to be complex.
How is this medicine going to beat something that’s complex for it’s producers?
So, who’s the lab-rat? A rat, so that they can ‘extrapolate the results expected from humans’ or the patients themselves?)
“As long as our body’s system of defense is running smoothly, we do not notice the immune system. And yet, different groups of cells work together and form alliances against just about any pathogen (germ).”
(My reaction: Thank you! Germs are foreign bodies. Thus, they are ‘pathogenic’. Traction and medicine are quite natural to our system, although they were designed in medically ‘certified’ workshops and laboratories by men who find what they’re trying to assit to be ‘complex’.)
“But illness can occur if the performance of the immune system is compromised, if the pathogen is especially aggressive, or sometimes also if the body is confronted with a pathogen it has not come into contact before.”
Thus, since such germs might be…
(or even might not be, but who cares)
…contracted with by us in a hypothetical, but certain, dystopia…
(A fever isn’t really the end of the world. Even medical graduates know that a fever is actually the body’s fighting mechanism.)
…the pharmacy has been suggesting prevention by voluntary contraction in ‘smaller dosages’ called Vaccination…
(Smaller then what, exactly? Natural contraction?)
…or by dosing the environment with ‘sufficient’ insecticide!
(and generously so)
Going back to the main article:
“These insecticides and mosquito coils/liquid repellents are basically dangerous poisons, capable of damaging the lungs and the rest of our respiratory system of ours, as well as that of the animals in our neighborhood. Inhalation of these insecticides which instantly mix with air, can cause asthma, skin-related diseases, and possibly even cancer.”
(My note: In an point in time where we talk about passive-smoking causing us lung damage, this isn’t surprising.
It’s not voluntary and there’s a lack of informed consent here.)
“If these chemicals are sprayed over your pet-animals, you’d see them dieing in few days, depending upon its dose.”
3. I noticed on Google that it’s more common to find a result which advertises insecticide than one that talks about any dark-side to it. So, here’s a passage from a commercial site, meant for ‘public awareness’: http://insectcop.net/are-mosquito-repellent-sprays-safe/
Are mosquito repellent sprays safe?
“Over the years, there has been a lot of speculation about if mosquito repellent sprays truly are safe to use, because to many they seem much more harmful that getting bitten by a small mosquito. Which is why in this article we examine the safety of mosquito sprays and which of them actually work.”
(My note: No prizes to be won on whether this scrutiny is profound or not. They’re already guaranteeing us the ‘best alternatives’.)
“Mosquito repellents actually are completely safe to us, especially if you consider the fact, that they keep the mosquitoes away and prevent us from getting infected by one of multiple mosquito-borne diseases these insects carry.”
My note: But are we ‘fighting-fire with fire’ here, hoping that the fire we use doesn’t burn us because we’re not engaging in a ‘complex’ enough battle already?
The immunity system is designed to fight these foreign bodies ‘and it probably would have gotten away with it if not for those meddling meds!’
Closure on this topic shall require a similar article on ‘Vaccination’ as well.
Coming back to the main article:
“We are inviting more severe diseases in the near future in the name of dengue fever prevention.”
“Creation of many types of fever by mosquito-bite has never been proved with such tell-tale evidences. It has been assumed as a probable cause.”
“While the allopathy system uses the ‘platelet count of blood’ as a parameter for dengue-fever, it neither says the reason for ‘less’ count of platelet nor does it have any medicine to cure it. But their ‘specialists’ have been continously advising people to visit hospitals for testing & treatment. Why?”
“All of the mass-media as well as our leaders are suddenly quite concious about dengue-fever.
“The industry of English medicine has a turnover in India of approx. 6 lakh crore. It is forecasted to grow 3 times in next few year by pharma/medical fraternities.”
4. To begin with, we’re paying for an extravaganza to eye-drops industry and here’s a video which explains the real reason – wastage makes it profitable: https://youtu.be/TVTnwSAFNsQ
So, we can’t expect our money to be respected?
5. This is from an article of a medical magazine about the market of medicine: https//www.biospectrumindia.com/features/73/7396/indias-pharma-market-to-skyrocket-from-20-bn-in-2015-to-55-bn-by-2020.html
“India’s pharma market to skyrocket from $20 bn in 2015 to $55 bn by 2020” – 01 February 2016 – By BioSpectrum Bureau
Let me just back it up with a WikiPedia article: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pharmaceutical_industry_in_India
“The pharmaceutical industry in India ranks 3rd in the world terms of volume and 14th in terms of value. According to Department of Pharmaceuticals, Ministry of Chemicals and Fertilizers, the total turnover of India’s pharmaceuticals industry between 2008 and September 2009 was US$21.04 billion.”
(My note: That is 136.81786 Lakh Crore in INR as of 2009. But I’m NOT against ‘generating wealth’.
If Medical Science has been contributing to our immunity, why is there a growing demand of medicine? Are mosquitoes really evolving faster than Darwin had anticipated or is this medicine impotent in the long run?
Nevertheless, let’s remember the human lives are involuntary and uninformed lab-rats of something that’s not even efficient, to begin with.)
Now the article continues…
“WHO says pharma-companies uses 20% of its profits to gift/bribe doctors and leaders of the country.”
6. Here’s a video on how direct advertising of medicine to people has impacted the doctors’ prescriptions and the sales of the pharmacy: https://youtu.be/_5jnn1AIt7Q
7. I don’t find any sources online which suggest the WHO saying anything against the pharmacy, as of yet. However, I do find this piece of information amusing: http://www.iflscience.com/health-and-medicine/find-out-how-much-big-pharma-drug-companies-are-paying-your-doctor/
Find Out How Much Big Pharma Drug Companies Are Paying Your Doctor
(I don’t think I should dig any deeper there.)
8. And for a relatively local example, I’m quoting a free-press journal: http://www.freepressjournal.in/india/drug-companies-to-be-punished-for-bribing-doctors-chemists/1109290
Drug Companies to be punished for bribing doctors, chemists — By FPJ Bureau | Jul 25, 2017 12:02 am
“New Delhi : The government is contemplating to impose harsh penalty on the pharmaceutical firms that continue to ‘bribe’ doctors and chemists with gifts and sponsoring of their travel and food to advance their products.”
“If the gifts and travel and hospitality costs are found to be borne by a company, its highest selling brand over the past 12 months will be banned for one full year. The company will have to pay up to Rs 10 crore as a penalty if it wants to fight such band on its top brand.”
“The harsh punishment is proposed in the Essential Commodities (Control of Unethical Practices in Marketing of Drugs) Order, drafted by the Ministry of Chemicals to curb rising prices of drugs due to the unethical marketing practices. The order is being vetted by the Law Ministry before its notification.”
“The ministry sources said this is the first serious attempt to break the unholy nexus between the doctors, chemist shops and the drug companies. The Alliance of Doctors for Ethical Healthcare (ADEH), however, dismissed it as a poor attempt since the order does not cover the booming medical device industry. It points out that there are huge margins in the implants industry.”
Back to the article…
“We are educated to panic when we see a tiny mosquito and believe that it can kill us. Are we accepting that a human-body, of 5 ft. or so, is so much weaker than a tiny-insect?”
“Could anyone explain how the slum-dwellers of the filthy Coovem river at Chennai are much healthier and haven’t died en mass even after living with millions of mosquitos and yet a healthy person, sleeping in an AC room, with all medical facilities, could die due to ‘dengue-fever’?”
(My note: If people live there, that could mean that mosquitos don’t actually kill. We’re not living in the Amazon forest as such.)
“When would we realise?”
My main-article ends here. I’ll be back, hopefully soon, with two more article dealing with ‘vaccines’ and ‘mosquitoes’.
I may not be a ‘medical-science expert’ as much as a prospective consumer and citizen with a right to demand for an transparency and informed consent on all mandated medical measures, like mass-spraying of insecticide across the neighborhood or mass-vaccination.
