Now that Dallas officials have 'decided' West Nile Disease has killed 14 people in the area and infected 557 more, the aerial spraying of a pesticide called Duet will begin.


The objective? Wipe out mosquitoes that carry the virus.

But here's the bombshell: there is no evidence that the supposed virus causing West Nile exists. This means there is no proof West Nile disease exists. And this fact has been known for years.


Scientists don't like to talk about it. It's extremely embarrassing.

The West Nile virus has never been isolated. "Isolated" means discovered. This is a simple notion. Just as you can ask whether an explorer on a ship, journeying to the tip of South America, ever arrived, you can ask whether researchers ever found the West Nile virus.

The answer is no.

Researchers state the virus in question is 0.04 micrometers. At the same time, they admit that the original fishing expedition for the virus employed filters that were 0.22 micrometers. The obvious conclusion? You cannot assume that whatever was trapped in the filter was West Nile virus. The filter was too porous. It was nearly six times larger than the virus.

In fact, Robert McLean, director of the National Wildlife Center of the US Geological Survey, told ABC's Nick Regush,

"We don't have a purified form of the [West Nile] virus."

A stunning admission.

The late ABC reporter, Regush, one of the few bright and independent minds in mainstream medical reporting, followed up on McLean's pronouncement with this:

"I find no evidence anywhere in the scientific literature that the rules of virus purification and isolation were thoroughly followed [in the case of the West Nile virus]."

The bottom line? In your search for a new virus, if you don't purify the material in which you suspect the virus is contained and filter out everything except the virus, and if you don't finally isolate it, you cannot claim to have located it at all. This is not a mere academic distinction.

Two questions immediately pop up:

  • How are people being diagnosed with West Nile if the virus has never been proved to exist

  • What is making people sick if not West Nile?

The answer to the first question is: antibody tests.


These extremely unreliable diagnostic tests are indirect. They supposedly show that elements of the patient's immune system have encountered, in this case, the West Nile virus, in the patient's body.

But antibody tests can and do register positive for irrelevant reasons. It's called cross-reaction. The test is pinging positive because other germs or debris in the patient's blood have caused the sensitive material in the test to respond.

It's a notorious fact in the case of HIV, for example.


In the early 1990s, independent journalist Christine Johnson published a report showing that the HIV test could read falsely positive for 60 reasons - none of them having anything to do with HIV. Other researchers followed suit. A patient "testing positive" for West Nile proves absolutely nothing.

As to the second question, there are some good reasons people in the Dallas area are getting sick. These reasons have nothing to do with "West Nile."

A decade ago, another independent journalist, Jim West, launched an original investigation into the so-called "West Nile epidemic" in New York City.

West correlated clusters of human and bird "West Nile" cases with several factors; among them,

  • nearby polluting oil refineries

  • other air pollution (certainly exacerbated by hot summer weather)

  • the presence of toxic MTBE, an additive that makes gasoline in cars burn cleaner

Citizens of Dallas should take a clue from Jim West's work and examine their own environment for these factors.

There are listings for at least eight refineries in the Dallas area. There are also reports of increased air pollution coming from natural gas production in the Barnett Shale. The 2012 summer has been hot. As of of the year 2000, Texas refineries were producing 75% of all the MTBE in the United States.

Now that 20 states have banned or reduced use of MTBE, the domestic market has declined.


However, there are new horizons for the chemical: China wants it. The Huntsman Corporation, which owns one of the largest MTBE-producing plants in the US, in Texas, has signed a licensing and production agreement with the Chinese chemical company, Yantai Wanhua.

How embarrassing would it be for Huntsman's burgeoning business if, in its own Texas backyard, MTBE was found to be contributing to illness and death?

Much easier to blame it on a virus that has never been found.


And much easier if other Texas sources of air pollution are also let off the hook.












Cities and Counties Nationwide Begin...

Mass Aerial Sprayings

...of Toxic 'Anti-West Nile Virus' Pesticides

Dallas County, Texas, and several nearby towns and cities in the Dallas area are currently being forcibly sprayed with toxic insecticides as part of a government effort to supposedly eradicate mosquitoes that may be carriers of West Nile virus (WNv).


The mass sprayings, which are ramping up all across the country, involve blanketing entire areas with chemicals sprayed via airplanes, a highly controversial protocol that threatens not only all other insects and animals exposed, but also humans.

According to the City of Dallas, more than 380 state-confirmed cases of WNv have been reported throughout Texas this year, and at least 16 people in the Lone Star State have died in conjunction with the virus.


The specifics of these cases and deaths have not been publicly released, but authorities insist that the situation is serious enough to warrant a series of at least three conjunctive aerial sprayings throughout Dallas County, including in Highland Park and University Park.



Aerial spraying chemicals linked to causing Colony Collapse Disorder

The chemical product being sprayed is known as Duet, an "advanced dual-action mosquito adulticide" that contains both sumithrin, the active ingredient in another mosquito pesticide known as Anvil, and prallethrin.


Both chemicals are known to be highly-toxic neuropoisons that target not only mosquitoes, but also bees, bats, fish, crickets, and various other animals and insects.

Sumithrin, a synthetic pyrethroid, is known to kill bees, and is linked to the widespread bee die-off phenomenon known as Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD).


In tests, sumithrin has been shown to damage human kidneys and the liver, and is also linked to causing both liver and breast cancers. Household pets exposed to sumithrin are also at risk of serious health complications, as are fish and other aquatic animals.

Prallethrin, another synthetic pyrethroid, is hardly any better. A 1993 study published in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives suggests that prallethrin is a human endocrine disruptor.


And like sumithrin, prallethrin is highly toxic to bees and other creatures besides just mosquitoes, threatening to very seriously disrupt the natural ecosystem of areas sprayed with it.



Trust us, we're from the government

Despite all this, officials continue to publicly insist that the spraying chemicals, the details of which are not being openly disclosed, are harmless to humans, though there is no legitimate scientific evidence to back this claim.


Instead, residents are simply being told that the sprayings are safe and necessary -- and many local residents seem content with this, having little or no concern about the harmful consequences of exposure.

In a recent photo published by the San Francisco Gate, for instance, local residents can be seen enjoying themselves on an outside patio at a local Dallas bar while spraying planes bombard them with chemicals overhead. As you will notice, these individuals appear to be amused by the large, toxic plumes in the sky.

The same report explains that many local residents have been largely "unfazed" by the sprayings, and even the warnings to stay indoors while they are taking place. Many local residents have reportedly continued on with their normal routines despite the sprayings, including jogging on outside trails and engaging in other outdoor activities.

Meanwhile, cities in,

...and elsewhere are also conducting their own aerial sprayings for WNv at the recommendation of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).



Aerial mosquito spraying ineffective, unsafe

According to research compiled by the group Stop West Nile Virus Spraying Now, aerial spraying endeavors are not even effective at preventing the transmission of WNv.


Dr. Wallace LeStourgeon, a molecular biologist from Vanderbilt University in Tennessee, says there is no evidence to show that aerial sprayings legitimately fight West Nile Virus.

Contrary to the reassurances of public officials, there is also no evidence that aerial spraying chemicals are safe for humans.


A Center for Public Integrity review of data compiled by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) shows that pyrethrin chemicals can cause severe reactions in many people, and may be responsible for injuring and killing far more people than they theoretically save from dying of WNv.

"Both peer-reviewed scientific research and mathematical modeling demonstrate that spraying is ineffective for WNv," says a recent report by California Progress Report.


"A model widely used for infectious diseases produced two important conclusions when applied to WNv transmission:

1) early, sufficient treatment for mosquito larvae is the key to control

2) treatment aimed at adults later in the season cannot possibly eradicate the virus."
