Did you ever wonder what happened to Zika? You should, as our Government gave the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) $1.1 billion to study and develop a vaccine against Zika. Where did that money go and what happened to Zika?
Recall that the Zika virus was making national headlines in 2016 as the CDC and other Powers-That-Be were claiming that Zika was responsible for the microcephaly epidemic that was occurring in one area of Brazil. Here is a sample of what the media had to say about Zika in 2016:
I know many of you do not like the term “fake news.” (Trust me, I hear about it every time I use it, especially by my much older sister.) But, I can find no better way to describe the mainstream reporting Zika coverage by the media, which was being driven by the CDC.
Here’s what I wrote on July 8, 2016 :
“Zika refers to the virus spread by mosquitos. It was first described as coming from the Zika Forest of Uganda in 1947. Zika has affected many tropical countries including many in Africa, the Americas, Asia, and the Pacific. And, over the last 70 years, there has not been an epidemic of microcephaly—children born with small heads–in any of these countries until a few months ago. Microcephaly made headlines early this year when a Brazilian doctor reported an epidemic increase in children being born with small heads—microcephaly. This doctor also noticed that many of the children who were born with small heads had mothers who were infected with Zika during their pregnancy.”
I also discussed the fact that Zika occurred in many other countries which did not suffer with an outbreak of microcephaly. I suggested that Congress not fund the CDCs folly of studying a benign virus.
One month later I wrote a second blog post  about Zika and commented that “…seven weeks after the CDC requested $1.9 billion dollars, the CDC announced that the Zika virus was, in fact, “…a cause of microcephaly and other severe fetal brain defects.”
This ludicrous statement came even after the World Health Organization stated,
“No scientific evidence to date confirms a link between Zika virus and microcephaly…”
A few weeks later, I posted  again about Zika lamenting that we (the taxpayers) were now funding Big Pharma to manufacture a vaccine against Zika even though:
- A microcephaly epidemic only occurred in NE Brazil
- Zika was never shown to cause the microcephaly epidemic in NE Brazil
- Zika is rampant throughout Brazil including the Amazon where there is no microcephaly epidemic
- Colombia which is next to Brazil studied 12,000 newborn babies and found no microcephaly cases even though Zika is rampant there
- A microcephaly epidemic occurred in NE Brazil, the CDC wants $1.9 billion to study and develop a vaccine from a virus that has NEVER been shown to cause microcephaly
I finished that third post by stating,
“I am hoping this is my last post about Zika.”
What prompted this fourth post?
Two things. First, a patient asked me if she should be concerned about going to South America because of Zika. The answer to that one is easy, no concerns at all.
Second, a 2018 report by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) stated that U.S. Autism rates are stabilizing.
According the NIH, 2.41% or 1 in 41 children in the U.S. are autistic. That is a 40% increase since 2010. Keep in mind, in the 1970s, autism occurred in 0.01% or 1 in 10,000 children. Even as late as the 1980s, one in 500 children suffered with autism.
Stabilizing? The word that should be used is infuriating.
Folks, the autism epidemic will ruin our country if we don’t fix it. We simply cannot function when one in 41 children are sick with a chronic illness.
The CDC and the other Powers-That-Be should be asking for money to study why autism has increased at epidemic rates in our children. Instead of asking for billions to study a benign virus, perhaps we should be studying our children.
President Trump, when he was campaigning for office, stated that he wanted to drain the swamp in Washington D.C. Let’s start draining the swamp by asking the CDC for the $1.1 billion dollars it wasted studying Zika and developing a vaccine that was never needed.
Better yet, let’s demand to know how this money was spent.
Furthermore, let’s spend money studying why our children are so sick. Although the CDC, NIH, FDA and many other agencies won’t be happy with the results of such a study, only then can we begin to drain the swamp and begin to reverse the decline in the health of our children.
I hope I don’t have to write again about the CDC wasting our money.
Unfortunately, I don’t have a lot of hope here.

Leaving a lucrative career as a nephrologist (kidney doctor), Dr. Suzanne Humphries is now free to actually help cure people.
In this autobiography she explains why good doctors are constrained within the current corrupt medical system from practicing real, ethical medicine.
One of the sane voices when it comes to examining the science behind modern-day vaccines, no pro-vaccine extremist doctors have ever dared to debate her in public.
Medical Doctors Opposed to Forced Vaccinations – Should Their Views be Silenced?
One of the biggest myths being propagated in the compliant mainstream media today is that doctors are either pro-vaccine or anti-vaccine, and that the anti-vaccine doctors are all “quacks.”
However, nothing could be further from the truth in the vaccine debate. Doctors are not unified at all on their positions regarding “the science” of vaccines, nor are they unified in the position of removing informed consent to a medical procedure like vaccines.
The two most extreme positions are those doctors who are 100% against vaccines and do not administer them at all, and those doctors that believe that ALL vaccines are safe and effective for ALL people, ALL the time, by force if necessary.
Very few doctors fall into either of these two extremist positions, and yet it is the extreme pro-vaccine position that is presented by the U.S. Government and mainstream media as being the dominant position of the medical field.
In between these two extreme views, however, is where the vast majority of doctors practicing today would probably categorize their position. Many doctors who consider themselves “pro-vaccine,” for example, do not believe that every single vaccine is appropriate for every single individual.
Many doctors recommend a “delayed” vaccine schedule for some patients, and not always the recommended one-size-fits-all CDC childhood schedule. Other doctors choose to recommend vaccines based on the actual science and merit of each vaccine, recommending some, while determining that others are not worth the risk for children, such as the suspect seasonal flu shot.
These doctors who do not hold extreme positions would be opposed to government-mandated vaccinations and the removal of all parental exemptions.
In this article, I am going to summarize the many doctors today who do not take the most extremist pro-vaccine position, which is probably not held by very many doctors at all, in spite of what the pharmaceutical industry, the federal government, and the mainstream media would like the public to believe.
