    Oh gawd. Another thalidomide event. I remember them altering mosquitoes last year.
    Roses are red. Tacos are enjoyable. Don't blame immigrants, because you're unemployable.

    They are adding Pyriproxyfen to the water supply!!!

    The Argentine Physicians believe that the best defence against Zika is "community-based actions". An example of such actions is featured in a BBC News report on the Dengue virus in El Salvador.A favourite breeding place for disease-carrying mosquitoes is storage containers of standing water. El Salvadorians have started keeping fish in the water containers, and the fish eat the mosquito larvae. Dengue has vanished along with the mosquitoes that transmit the disease. And so far, the locals don't have any Zika cases either.


    Simple yet effective programmes like this are in danger of being neglected in Brazil in favour of the corporate-backed programmes of pesticide spraying and releasing GM mosquitoes. The latter is completely unproven and the former may be causing far more serious harm than the mosquitoes that are being targeted.
