The Argentine doctors who have banded together under the banner Physicians in the Crop-Sprayed Towns, have raised concern about the birth defects being related to the deliberately polluted water in the towns where abnormally high rates of Microcephaly are present.
The guilty party, they claim is a ‘strategic partner’ of Monsanto.
“Exposures can cause sterility or decreased fertility, impaired development, birth defects of the reproductive tract, and metabolic disorders.” According to sponsored WHO reports, the same chemical still has a “?
” for the “Developmental or Reproductive Toxin” and “Endocrine Disruptor” categories.
“Malformations detected in thousands of children from pregnant women living in areas where the Brazilian state added Pyriproxyfen to drinking water are not a coincidence, even though the Ministry of Health places a direct blame on the Zika virus for this damage,” the Physicians in the Crop-Sprayed Towns have commented.
But they do say this: “Some pesticides are known to cause birth defects or interfere with normal development…
Many pesticides that disrupt endocrine functions also cause reproductive and developmental harm, as well as other adverse effects,” says one report.
The affects that alter the developing mosquitoes during its developmental cycle – larva, pupa, adult – mimic the birth defects now affecting unborn babies.
The inhabitance of the development of the mosquito can range from wing and genitalia defect, to disabling and killing them.
Their counterpart, Japanese company Sumitomo, manufactured a chemical called Pyriproxyfen, which was introduced into the drinking water supplies in 2014.
According to the physicians’’ report, Pyriproxyfen is a chemical larvicide that was produced to curtail the mosquito breeding cycle.
