In a bid to promote a new Zika vaccine authorities are now claiming that the Zika virus may cause mental disorders and developmental disorders such as autism.
Dr. W. Ian Lipkin, director of The Center for Infection and Immunity at Columbia University, told The New York Times, “I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw a big upswing in A.D.H.D., autism, epilepsy and schizophrenia,” in an interview about the potential consequences of the virus.
And he added, “We are looking at a large group of individuals who may not be able to function in this world.”
This is an unimaginable scenario. For years, anti-vaccination proponents have screamed to the top of the mountain that vaccines cause autism only to have duct tape placed firmly over their mouths.
Then suddenly, a “brand new” epidemic begins and is associated with birth defects until that theory falls apart, then it is replaced with autism. It is more than a shame, it is an absurdly desperate attempt at salvaging remnants from a crumbling building.
So now a new vaccine (Zika vaccine) will prevent autism. That’s the direction we are heading. This is shameless as much as it is desperate and caters to the seriously uninformed sheep of our world. The mental illness play is also especially ridiculous. But it is also brilliant. Think of how many people in the world will tell you that they are depressed? Now Zika could be the cause and they can protect themselves with a vaccine.
Zika was discovered in 1947 and now all of the sudden, it is causing severe birth defects, autism, schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. In order to believe this silliness, one would pretty much have to accept the idea that a virus, which alluded us for 70 years, has been responsible for some of the most difficult disorders mankind is challenged with. And you’d have to believe that only now has it reared it’s ugly head enough for us to notice it. There is tragedy in media spin and those who buy stock in it. I hope this doesn’t get legs.
