Once again, I’m detailing what is causing illness and death in West Africa, without reference to the Ebola virus or any virus.
Indeed, the narrative of the virus functions as a cover story, to obscure corporate and government crimes.
The reference here is “Measuring pesticide ecological and health risks in West African agriculture…” Feb. 17, 2014, published in Philosophical Transactions of The Royal Society, by PC Jepson et al.
“The survey was conducted at 19 locations in five countries and obtained information from 1704 individuals who grew 22 different crops. Over the 2 years of surveying, farmers reported use of 31 pesticides…
“…certain compounds represented high risk in multiple environmental and human health compartments, including carbofuran, chlorpyrifos, dimethoate, endosulfan and methamidophos.
“Health effects included cholinesterase inhibition, developmental toxicity, impairment of thyroid function and depressed red blood cell count…”
The study also notes that “[p]esticide imports to West Africa grew at an estimated 19% a year in the 1990s…well ahead of the growth in agricultural production of 2.5%…” In other words, pesticides have flooded West Africa.
Here is another vital observation: “The distribution and sale of pesticides in West Africa is not effectively regulated. Multiple channels of supply commonly include the repackaging of obsolete or illegal stocks [extremely toxic] and the correspondence between the contents of containers to what is stated on the label is poor…”
Pesticide suppliers conceal banned pesticides—which they are taking a loss on, because they can’t sell them—and put them inside containers labeled with the names of legal pesticides.
Let’s consider the pesticides specifically mentioned in the study.
Carborfuran—-According to the New Jersey Dept. of Health and Senior Services’ Hazardous Substance Fact Sheet, exposure to Carbofuran “can cause weakness, sweating, nausea and vomiting, abdominal pain, and blurred vision. Higher levels can cause muscle twitching, loss of coordination, and may cause breathing to stop [imminent death].”
Chloropyrifos, dimethoate, and methamidophos are organophosphates. In my previous article, I cited such compounds as a source of internal bleeding (an “Ebola” symptom). ThePesticide Action Network describes organophosphates as “among the most acutely toxic of all pesticides…they deactivate an enzyme, Cholinesterase, which is essential for healthy nerve function.”
Endosulfan is being phased out globally, because it is extremely toxic and disrupts the endocrine system.
These pesticides can and do produce a number of the symptoms called “Ebola:”
Bleeding, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, rash, stomach pain, coma.
But all this is swept aside in the hysteria about The Virus.
