“Zika Zone” Turns Into Ghost Town as Planes Spray Neurotoxic Insecticide Over Residents

zika sprayingBy Joseph Jankowski

According to shop owners and managers in the town of Wynwood, Florida – also known as the “Zika Zone” – the area has been noticeably empty of the usual crowds that form to see the local murals and shop at local businesses.

The slowdown in pedestrian traffic coincides with the intensified effort by the state of Florida to combat the mosquitoes which carry the Zika virus by blanketing the town of Wynwood with insecticide.

“It’s actually been pretty much a ghost town,” an eclectic plant shop owner in the area, who was only able to make one sale on an otherwise busy Saturday, told CBS Miami.

Yesenia Candelario at Marine Layer told CBS that it was a “very slow, quiet weekend in the trendy, artsy enclave.”

“There’s a bunch of restaurants here and now we have new shops. So we have a lot of people come in for brunch and tourists who wanna see the murals and shop around,” Candelario explained. “But it’s not like that due to the Zika virus.”

Last week the state of Florida started a campaign to kill off the Aedes species of mosquito by spraying an insecticide called Naled over a 10-mile radius surrounding the Wynwood area.

At least 15 people in the city’s Wynwood area are believed to have been infected with the virus through mosquito bites.

According to Cornell University, the organophosphate chemical Naled is moderately to highly toxic by ingestion, inhalation and dermal absorption.

From Cornell.edu:

Vapors or fumes of naled are corrosive to the mucous membranes lining the mouth, throat and lungs, and inhalation may cause severe irritation. A sensation of tightness in the chest and coughing are commonly experienced after inhalation. As with all organophosphates, naled is readily absorbed through the skin. Skin which has come in contact with this material should be washed immediately with soap and water and all contaminated clothing should be removed.

In laboratory tests, Naled exposure caused increased aggressiveness and a deterioration of memory and learning.

It was also shown to interfere with prenatal brain development and has a cancerous byproduct.

From the No Spray Coalition:

Naled’s breakdown product DICHLORVOS (another organophosphate insecticide) interferes with prenatal brain development. In laboratory animals, exposure for just 3 days during pregnancy when the brain is growing quickly reduced brain size 15 percent.

DICHLORVOS also causes cancer, according to the International Agency for Research on Carcinogens. In laboratory tests, it caused leukemia and pancreatic cancer. Two independent studies have shown that children exposed to household “no-pest” strips containing dichlorvos have a higher incidence of brain cancer than unexposed children.

Aerial applications of naled can drift up to one-half mile. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, naled is moderately to highly toxic to birds and fish. It also reduced egg production and hatching success in tests with birds and reduced growth in tests with juvenile fish. convulsions, paralysis, and death.

When looking at footage of the aerial spraying occurring over Wynwood, and the fact that the insecticide can drift a half mile, it is absolutely no wonder why tourists and locals would be discouraged from going outside in the area.

Why risk being sprayed with or exposed to a toxic chemical that could negatively affect you neurologically?

It is also interesting to note that the Zika hysteria has been fueled by the supposed fact that the virus causes microcephaly, a birth defect that causes an infant’s head to be significantly smaller than the heads of other children of the same age and sex.

It could be extremely risky and potentially counterproductive to fight the Zika spreading mosquitoes with Naled considering the lab tests that show reduced brain size of 15 percent in animals exposed to the chemical.

  1. I still cannot believe how criminal these bastards are. They should hang!

  2. those pesky minorities just won’t stop breeding – gov’t gotta do sumthin, cause we need room for more different minorities – we don’t like the ones we’ve already imported

  3. I’m sure the water supply will be targeted for maximum effect.

  4. Zika, WestNile and H1n1 oh my. Whatever shall we do. Another hoax that the alphabets dreamed up. SoooScarrrry. Boogie mans to the left of me boogie mans to the right of me here I am stuck in the middle with my pipe and beer. Oh my.

    • Yeah, I can’t keep track of what I’m supposed to be terrified of from day to day. Good thing that’s what the government is for, because I can’t think for myself.

  5. Boy there’s a lot of stupid people running cities, states, and the feds. I wonder how many bought stocks in these chemical companies before spending millions of taxpayers dollars?

  6. YOU are the insects they are spraying! Zika has been around for 70 years, it’s just cold symptoms, not deadly. The small heads are the cause of a vaccine.

  7. Do you think these planes will be spraying over Bill Gates’s mansions or any of the .001 %.

  8. Its not zika that is killing people and making them deadly ill. Its the damn chemicals,most made by Monsanto. This is a setup by obama.

  9. they didn’t have an e-bola outbreak in Africa until bill gates released it from his research facilities in Africa now we have zika virus was unknown until bill gates started releasing them from his facilities and now they want to release them un purpose and allow the chemical companies to produce more vaccines loaded with heavy metal preservatives

    • Bill and Melinda Gates really want to kill you and 95% of the planet population. It’s in Bill’s DNA, his father was head of Planned Parenthood at one time.

  10. The introduction of GMO food, which would sicken all the nations was a premeditation from its very begin. Just follow the timing of events related to the development of herbicide glyphosate, which is an artificial replacement for a glycine, a human inhibiting neurotransmitter, known in ~30’ies to feed special inducible types of cancer. This chemical was patented in 70ies, and in 80-90ies ~90% of all GMO crops were deliberately designed in order to make them resistant to it, so that most of the main feed crops, their plants would become dependent on this carcinogen, antibiotic and metal chelator. The huge pressure to spread the OXT513A

    • I agree. The “masses” are under attack by deception and war of all facets. Unfortunately, the obvious has not entered most peoples radar. It does show that there are no good nations, and some very vile ones run by the depraved. All bodily systems are under attack, and by sheer stupidity, the web of life is too. Law has been inverted to serve the few connected families so trial has become irrelevant. Here in the US, politicians, think tanks, secret societies, military and others need to be turned inside out starting at the local level. The federalist mentality should be kicked out and central government replaced by the states back to the articles of confederation. The Federalist Party was voted out of existence once before. It needs to be done again. Both “parties” have been complicit since the beginning.

      • The ZIKA topic goes way beyond politics, it touches the fundamental principles of life on this planet and how it can be affected, by science, which in large is still an ideology, not the description of reality. The politics is in fact detrimental in all this. Take for example the safety statements from FDA files assessing the dangers of Oxitec GMO mosquito’s, quote: “More generally, in the case of birds eating mosquitoes (and humans
        unintentionally swallowing them), animals do not incorporate DNA from
        their food into their genome. Because nucleic acids, including DNA, are
        present in the cells of every living organism, including every plant and
        animal used for food by humans and animals, and do not raise a safety
        concern as a component of food, nucleic acids are presumed to be
        generally recognized as safe (GRAS) for food consumption (57 FR 22984,
        22990, May 29, 1992). Accordingly, there is no direct food consumption
        risk associated with exposure to the endogenous Ae.aegypti DNA or the #OX513 rDNA construct itself”. The fallacy of that statements goes beyond the horizon. The DNA code, as we know
        it, suppose to code the entire organism, its parts, and that includes
        viruses, pathogenic bacteria, which are full of DNA material. So are
        they ok to be eaten?? Of course not, since that’s exactly how we get
        infected, by exposure of the viral surface to our epithelial cells
        surface and by the transfer of viral DNA/RNA into our cells and reprogramming them. Prof. V. Citovsky, an expert on Agrotumefaciens, can tell you how T-DNA, from that pathogenic soil bacteria
        causing cancer in many plants, can cross the bacterial species and land
        into human DNA. Please remember, many current GMOs, ‘approved’ for our consumption, contain the T-DNA!! Does the normal food contain special DNA pieces, and cutting and pasting
        enzymes(proteins) which work on DNA, or RNA only, like viruses do??
        Otherwise, how would the viruses spread the disease? How would cancer
        evolve, in special cases?? If one eats a sandwich laced with E.bola,
        would that be ok??? The STUPIDITY OR CORRUPTION, or both, of those who ‘approve’
        biotechnology ‘inventions’ has NO LIMITS.

        • Thank you for your reply. Nightmares that are not fathomable for most look like our new reality. Transgenesis is truly evil beyond understanding. Most of it is not approved or has no organization that is responsible. Universities, research corporations and government entities, with the blessing of our governments may make the planet uninhabitable. The USDA’s Generally Recognized as Safe is as big a lie. There is no oversight. The FDA is just as ugly, and as you point out, this will end up in our own DNA as well as other living things. Mutagens are available in many different forms and are being applied literally everywhere on the planet and firmament.

  11. Your government just proving that they are dying to kill you. It is somewhat surprising to me that the vast majority of people fail to realize that government, local, state and federal see you,the people as their enemy.
