10 Lies About West
Nile Virus and Anvil
- By Robert Lederman
#1: THE ONLY SIDE-EFFECTS OF 'ANVIL' EXPOSURE ARE COUGHING,
STUFFY NOSE, ITCHING
AND WATERY EYES
like an allergic reaction to pollen, these responses to the toxic ingredients
of Anvil are an attempt by a person's immune system to flush the substances from
the body. Mucus nasal secretions, tears and coughing to expel the irritant from
the lungs are not the harmful effects of exposure but are simply proof that the
body recognizes Anvil as something it wants to get rid of immediately. The symptoms
of a disease are not the effects of a disease. If you have emphysema from cigarette
smoking you may feel tired and have difficulty breathing. In response, you might
use an inhaler and temporarily breath better, but that would hardly mean you had
recovered from the disease or from permanent damage to your lung tissue.
- The suspected and in many cases
already proven long term effects of exposure to Pyrethrins like Anvil include
immune system and liver damage, endocrine disruption, proliferation of breast
cancer cells, lowered sperm count and cognitive difficulties. The latest science
concerning this finds that at even the most minimal exposure serious health effects
and endocrine disruption have been observed. The real damage from exposure to
these chemicals won't be manifested until long after the itching, runny nose or
coughing have stopped. By then, few people will remember or be able to prove the
connection between exposure and their illness. Chemical companies, just like cigarette
manufacturers, depend on this time lag between exposure and illness to prevent
them from being found liable.
#2: WEST NILE VIRUS (WNV) IS A DEADLY DISEASE
- The Mayor and the media keep referring to WNV as a deadly disease
transmitted by killer mosquitoes. Yet, they qualify these claims by saying that
WNV is very hard to become infected by and that most people who do get infected
recover without any treatment and without experiencing any symptoms. So which
is it, a deadly infectious disease, or very mild and hard to become infected by?
It can't be both.
to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) the largest known WNV epidemic in history
occurred in Romania in 1996. Approximately 100,000 people allegedly became infected.
About 400 of those people became ill with symptoms of encephalitis. Only 15 of
those people, all of whom were over 65, died. Considering the level of health
care in that country and the poor nutritional status and immune health of its
senior citizens, these statistics indicate that the virus is much less dangerous
than the common cold. See: (www.naba.org/wnvirus.html). In NYC according to the
Department of Health's own study, of the four NYC residents who they claim died
last year from WNV, three were taking immunosuppresant cancer drugs and the fourth
was HIV-positive...meaning that only people with severely compromised immune systems
die from WNV and that even in those cases death is rare. [See: New York City Department
of Health, West Nile Virus: A Briefing, City Health Information Vol. 19, No. 1
(May 2000) http://www.ci.nyc.ny.us/html/doh/html/chi/chi.html]
- LIE #3: SEVEN PEOPLE DIED LAST YEAR FROM WNV
- Every Giuliani press release and every news report prominently
mentions that seven people died in the general NYC area last year from WNV. Like
the Mayor's crime statistics or the Federal government's claims that the economy
has never been better these statements are unverifiable. No name, blood sample
or tissue sample of any person who allegedly died from WNV has been made available
to independent scientists for confirmation and testing. Every claim of an infected
bird, mosquito or human is based on reports by the NYC Department of Health or
scientists that work for the CDC or receive funding from them. These are also
the same exact source of the spray policy, creating a perfect loop of "proof"
justifying their own decision to spray. In science an outside independent source
verifying the conclusions and reproducing experimental results is always necessary
before any statement can be taken as a fact. The same is generally true in law,
in journalism and in business. See the end of this report for an analysis of the
reliability of the CDC in this matter.
- LIE #4: THE PESTICIDE BEING USED, 'ANVIL,' IS NATURAL
- Anvil is a synthetic imitation
of a naturally occurring substance found in Chrysanthemums. The natural version,
which is considered much safer than the synthetic, is far more expensive and is
not being used anywhere in NYC. This information is plainly stated in the Mayor's
press releases yet he stands up at press conferences directly contradicting it-a
good indication of his truthfulness on the entire WNV issue. Most of the numerous
other ingredients in Anvil are synthetic derivatives of petroleum-based chemicals
such as Benzene and Piperonyl Butoxide. Many of these ingredients are on the EPA's
list of dangerous, toxic and cancer causing substances. They are about as far
from natural as you can get.
#5: 'ANVIL' IS SAFE AND NON-TOXIC
is illegal in NY State to describe any pesticide as safe. If you examine the actual
texts of the Mayor's safety claims within his press releases you will find that
each one is qualified by terms like "relatively safe", "less toxic
than" and "safe when used according to directions". The EPA studies
on which pesticide safety claims are based are done solely by the pesticide manufacturers
themselves, who have an obvious conflict of interest in this regard. The term
safe as used in these studies is very misleading, as a reading of the studies
themselves makes clear. A determination of safe is reached by feeding rats the
chemical or exposing them to its vapors. When only 50% of the rats die, the substance
is classified as safe. Every study that concludes that products like Anvil are
safe includes reports of tumors in rats, developmental problems in young rats,
miscarriages and deformities to name just a few health effects. As long as less
than 50% of the rats get these symptoms the product is considered safe. Since
human testing of this kind is illegal there is no way to tell, short of massively
spraying a population as is being done in NYC, what the effects will be on humans.

#6: 'ANVIL' DISSIPATES BY THE NEXT MORNING
- Mayor Giuliani claims, and the media dutifully repeats, that
these pesticides dissipate within two hours of being sprayed. These claims are
deliberately deceptive. As chemical compounds are exposed to air and sunlight
they undergo numerous changes. Malathion for example become Maloxon a very different
substance which is more than 20 times as toxic. It is true to say the Malathion
is gone-but what remains in its place is far worse. The claim of dissipation is
based on ideal conditions-Anvil on a glass slide in direct sunlight-that have
little if anything to do with the actual conditions in NYC. Much of the spraying
was done on damp, even rainy days-in direct violation of the manufacturer's instructions.
Much of the chemical is deposited in shady areas, on leaves, in cracks and crevices,
in A/C filters, in heating vents and in countless other places where there is
no direct sunlight. Much of it is tracked or drifts into people's homes where
it can persist for weeks, months or years waiting to be inhaled, eaten or absorbed
through the skin. The idea that people can enter a public park, jog, picnic and
lay on grass that was massively sprayed just two hours before without receiving
direct exposure is absurd. Children playing in that grass and then putting their
hands in their mouths might just as well have been lined up and given a sample
of Anvil to drink.
#7: ANVIL KILLS MOST OF THE MOSQUITOES
- The most ironic aspect of the spray policy is that, contrary
to the Mayor's claims, it does not kill most of the mosquitoes. If it did, the
earth, which has endured billions of tons of pesticide exposure, would already
be mosquito-free. The opposite is true. Pesticide spraying, according to the NY
State Department of Health and even the pesticide manufacturers, directly results
in new generations of pesticide-resistant mosquitoes.
- For those like Mayor Giuliani who missed the past hundred years
of science, this process is called natural selection. In insects, natural selection
can occur in a period of days, weeks or months because each generation only lives
a short time. Reproduction by even one genetically pesticide-resistant mosquito
can result in hundreds of resistant offspring who then mate and create an entire
population with that same genetic quality. Studies done in Florida where there
is a much more severe mosquito problem, found a 1500% increase in mosquitoes after
spraying, virtually all of whom were now pesticide-resistant. Even worse, many
mosquito experts believe the immune suppression pesticides cause in all living
things makes mosquitoes, birds and humans far more vulnerable to encephalitis
infections. Apparently, only mosquitoes exposed to pesticides can get and transmit
the infection due to damage to their stomach lining. Driving spray trucks past
the fronts of rows of apartment houses to kill mosquitoes breeding in the backyards
is about as effective as shooting a gun in the opposite direction of a target
and hoping it will circumvent the entire earth to strike the target from behind.
It is however, an excellent technique to guarantee an increase in mosquitoes,
dead birds and encephalitis infections thereby justifying more and more spraying.
- LIE #8: WE ARE SAVING LIVES BY SPRAYING - IF WE DIDN'T, MANY
MORE PEOPLE WOULD GET SICK
CDC's own studies found that NYC's 1999 so-called WNV epidemic had peaked and
was declining more than a month before spraying began. See http://www.cdc.gov/epo/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/mm4841a3.htm
- LIE #9: THE SPRAYING IS BEING
DONE BY QUALIFIED PROFESSIONALS
the Clarke Mosquito Control Co. itself may have some qualified pesticide applicators
the spraying in NYC is being done by temporary workers solicited through an ad
in the NY Post. These untrained and unqualified workers are being paid $10 an
hour to damage their own and everyone else's health-an excellent example of what
Giuliani means by creating jobs. In direct violation of OSHA rules and the warnings
on the product labels, none of the applicators are wearing protective clothing,
respirators or gloves. Because of the heat, most drive the trucks with the windows
wide open. The police escorts ordered to precede and follow the spray trucks are
likewise totally unprotected and deliberately uninformed about the risks. This
is not an oversight or an accident. If the applicators and the police escorts
were wearing the type of protective gear required by law, no one would believe
the Mayor's claims that the spray is safe.
- LIE #10: THE ONLY PEOPLE WHO OPPOSE THE SPRAYING ARE ENVIRONMENTALISTS
WHO CARE MORE ABOUT BIRDS THAN PEOPLE AND ACTIVISTS WHO OPPOSE ANYTHING GIULIANI
- While the loudest
voices in opposition to the spraying may include many activists and environmentalists,
there are thousands of medical professionals in the NYC area that oppose the spraying.
[Contact Rivka Lieber (LieberR@aol.com) for a copy of a petition signed by numerous
doctors and scientists opposed to the spraying]. The media simply refuses to interview
any of these people preferring to use sound bites from uninformed NYC residents
or Giuliani supporters who believe anything the Mayor says no matter how absurd.
Many scientists and health professionals are understandably fearful of losing
their jobs, grants from chemical/pharmaceutical companies and their professional
reputation if they speak out too loudly. Most medical professionals work for institutions
that are dependent on receiving money from the government, from private institutions
like Rockefeller University, from the CDC and from corporations that are actually
behind the spray policy and the entire WNV panic. For them, publicly opposing
this policy could destroy their careers. The same goes for reporters that would
like to expose the facts but have been instructed not to.
- THE CDC SAYS WE MUST SPRAY-THE CONNECTION BETWEEN THE CDC, THE
CIA AND THE WNV ISSUE
CDC bases much of its information concerning international health issues, epidemics
and communicable diseases on reports by the CIA-a US governmental agency whose
official role includes the dissemination of propaganda and disinformation throughout
the world. The CIA oversees CDC operations in areas classified as a potential
health threat to national security.
CDC has been implicated in numerous health disasters involving the distribution
of vaccines both in the US and in the third world. Many scientists and researchers
believe they are the source for a number of diseases that never previously existed.
All of these diseases just happen to be associated with bio-warfare research labs
working with or run by the CDC, the CIA and/or the U.S. Army.
- The CIA has a proven track record of misinforming not only foreign
governments but other US governmental agencies, the Congress, the US military,
the President of the United States and the American people on issues as diverse
as the real condition of the Soviet Union during the Cold War, Sadamn Hussein's
intentions in the Gulf, the state of affairs in Iran and where U.S. tax dollars
are actually being spent on covert operations. Even some US Senators now believe
the CIA is largely responsible for the crack epidemic in the U.S.
- As GW Bush and his likely appointee to be Attorney General-Rudy
Giuliani-publicly admit, they get virtually all of their policy "ideas"
directly from the Manhattan Institute, a think tank started by Ronald Reagan's
CIA director William Casey. Immediately after WWII Casey played a major role in
bringing thousands of top Nazi scientists and SS intelligence officials to the
US. Many of them became employees of the newly formed, CIA.
- Most of the pesticides being used in NYC are derived from nerve
gasses developed by Nazi scientists. The company that patented and manufactured
them in Germany, IG Farben, was a full partner with Rockefeller/Standard Oil before,
during and since WWII. After the war IG Farben was broken up into four companies
that are now the world leaders in chemical and pharmaceutical manufacturing and
research. Rockefeller/Chase Bank just happens to be the main funder of the Manhattan
Institute. No less a high-level source than former Presidents Roosevelt and Truman
considered the Rockefellers to be traitors to the U.S. who were actively aiding
the Nazis throughout WWII [See The Secret War Against the Jews by Loftus and Aarons].
- Among the key issues promoted
by the Manhattan Institute, is a campaign to discredit 50 years of science demonstrating
that pesticides, petroleum-based chemical pollution and pharmaceuticals manufactured
by contemporary spin-offs of Standard Oil/Exxon and IG Farben are dangerous to
human health and the environment. All a coincidence? See Peter Huber's books featured
on the Manhattan Institute's webpage http://www.manhattan-institute.org/ Also

and his link to the Manhattan Institute.
