Brazil Warns Women Not To Get Pregnant

A link between a form of fetal brain damage and the mosquito-born zica virus has been confirmed by Brazilian health authorities .

The link between zica, first medically identified as a new disease half a century ago, and birth defects has never been made.

The virus, endemic in parts Africa, South America, Southeast Asia and some Pacific Islands, has until now been blamed for symptoms such as fever, mild headache, skin rashes, joint pain and conjunctivitis, or "red eye."

Initial analysis shows that the virus can be passed to a fetus and that the fetus is at greatest risk from the virus during the first three months of pregnancy, the statements said.

More tests and studies are needed to clarify the exact method of transmission and infection, the statement added.

A surge in recent months of babies born with microcephaly, or an unnaturally small brain, in Brazil's northeast, led authorities to suspect the virus may have more sinister effects than previously recorded,  the ministry said.

Microcephalic children can suffer developmental and intellectual difficulties that limit intelligence and muscle coordination for life.

The ministry's conclusion was made after tests on the tissue of a deceased child with microcephalic symptoms by the Ivandro Chagas Institute in Belém, Brazil, one of South America's leading health institutes. There is also evidence that zica has contributed to the deaths of adults weakened by other diseases.

Zica is transmitted by the Aedes aegypti mosquito also known to carry the yellow fever, dengue, chikungunya viruses.

The ministry said that the new information means that zica has become a serious risk to public health and that Brazil must embark on an emergency program to control the Aedes aegypti mosquito to prevent the virus' spread.

In a note published on its website, the ministry insists that more research is needed to clarify the connection between the virus and the condition. It states the period of greatest risk for pregnant women appears to be in the first three months of gestation.

Though it is not official policy, Cláudio Maierovitch, the director of the communicable disease surveillance department at the ministry of health, has advised women in high-risk areas to avoid attempting to conceive.

“Don’t get pregnant at the moment,” he said. “That’s the wisest course of action.”

Brazil has invited the Atlanta, Georgia-based U.S. Center for Disease Control to visit the country and observe research and control efforts, the health ministry said.

This is a very serious case humanity keeps getting one surprise attack after the other. Personally I have done some research and discovered the most preventive health measure is to have a high immune system at all time.

That is why I am such a strong proponent of Trévo. I have never seen a liquid nutritional formula that is so completely absorbed into the gastrointestinal tract or that works as well as this product does.

Trévo gives your body the full spectrum of the nutrients that it needs for optimum health. You might wonder just what I mean by “optimum health” when it comes to the way your body functions. To my way of thinking, it’s a combination of elements that add up to more energy, a healthier body, and a good mental attitude. When your body achieves this kind of wholeness, it is more able to protect and heal itself naturally. And when wholeness is the goal, instead of merely addressing pain and disease, your body naturally moves toward health all by itself.
