There Is No Such Thing as the West Nile Virus
by Rami Nagel
(NaturalNews) Do you believe in the Tooth Fairy and Santa Clause? Are they real people flying around performing magical deeds? Hopefully you don't believe this. Yes, they are fun stories, "something to believe in," when you are a child; or possibly they are spirits or energy forms. But they do not exist in flesh and blood. This article explains how in same way, West Nile Virus is also a fairy tale that "authorities" want you to believe in. It is not more real than the Easter Bunny. Feel into this truth:
There is no such thing as the West Nile Virus!
Pesticide manufacturers, pharmaceutical giants, the U.S. government, industry scientists, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), State and County government agencies believe in their own fairy tales. But they find those children's stories too boring and too happy. They wanted something dark and sinister. So they rewrote the fairytale and thought of some scary name that evokes fear of the unknown: "West Nile Virus". Then, rather than good people who give children presents and good feelings, this West Nile Virus is a mean and ugly monster. It kills people, it's contagious, and they want you to think that you should be very afraid of it. They want you to be so afraid of it that you will vote for your local governmental agency to go ahead and spray chemicals on you (and some mosquitoes) to stop it. But you know what? Just like the Easter Bunny and all the others, it just doesn't exist. Let me explain.
There was once a real scientist who didn't work for the pharmaceutical mafia. This was a long time ago, around 1890. His name was Robert Koch, and he was a German physician. Dr. Koch and bacteriologist Friedrich Loeffler had this crazy idea that in order to prove that diseases are caused by a virus, it should be possible to isolate the virus organism, and then use that isolated organism to create a disease in another otherwise healthy animal (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Koch's_postulates). When people are sick you might see in an unhealthy person's blood, colonies of bacteria or other strange cellular formations. The existence of microorganisms in the body of a sick person does not indicate that the bacteria are the cause of disease. The idea that germs invade the body and cause disease was coined by Louis Pasteur. Even during Pasteur's time there was strong scientific evidence against this "germ theory" of disease because germs can evolve and mutate based on their environment, this is called pleomorphism (www.rawpaleodiet.org/pleomorphism-1.html) .
Dr. Koch's common sense postulates, which set up the criteria to prove the existence of a virus, used to be a part of science. As technology improved science should have been able to conclusively prove the existence of viruses under Koch's postulates and at least isolate and locate a virus under a microscope. But scientists never have been able to do this. Nobody could isolate any viruses to prove that they exist. Rather than admit that perhaps infectious viruses do not exist, dubious scientists now thought of a better plan. They decided to pretend viruses exist. To do that they had to claim the virus find fits into Koch's accepted postulates. So they write and use the term "isolated" for a virus even when they have done no such thing.
The idea of a virus causing disease was purposely spread as a disinformation strategy and now everybody believes in it.
West Nile Virus is not the only virus to never have been truly isolated. HIV, the virus believed to cause AIDS, also does not exist. This is explained in detail at (www.virusmyth.com) , neither does anything called a virus in reality exist. Bacteria and fungi present in diseased states do exist, but viruses that cause disease do not exist. The claim that there are viruses that cause disease is a fairy tale, like the Tooth Fairy and Santa Clause.
To "isolate" West Nile Virus (WNV), scientists begin by pulverizing believed-to-be "infected" mosquitoes and "infected" crows' brains. Then this material is run through a high speed centrifuge, and filtered through a filter whose pores are six times larger than what the size of the virus could be -- so anything could, in addition to the purported virus, be left in this mixture. If this mixture of all kinds of stuff is placed in a petri dish and kills cells -- which it did -- then it is assumed that the cell death was caused by the dreaded West Nile Virus. Don't mind that there's a bunch of other stuff in the mixture and no virus, the virus is still blamed for causing the cell death. "Scientists" then take this same material and look for RNA sequences. When they find a sequence, they claim to have mapped out the virus (davidcrowe.ca/SciHealthEnv/alive-wnv.html) .
In fact, they have mapped something, but it's not likely a virus. They probably mapped part of a mosquito brain. You might think that this article is a joke, especially with my bit of sarcasm; this is not a joke. The only joke, if you will, is to call these crude experiments proof of a virus. But it is also very serious, because it is this bogus science that the health mafia wants you to believe in. And when you believe it then they create false emergencies in order to spray poison on you, your spouse, your pets, or your children. In other cases, they try to coerce people into getting injected with poisonous substances laced with heavy metals to stop some supposed virus. You know this one well; they call it vaccination.
Let's take this a step further and examine the work of a German virologist and molecular biologist, Dr. Stephan Lanka. As a university student Dr. Lanka started researching virology and made some startling discoveries. At first he had some doubts about what he discovered, but over time he realized the blatant truth. In his words (probably translated from German): "viruses which are claimed to be very dangerous -- in fact do not exist at all." As for all those photos of supposed viruses, he describes what people are really seeing. The pictures of viruses for influenza, herpes, HIV, measles, hepatitis B, smallpox and other diseases are not pictures of viruses, but pictures of cells with typical particles or other cellular material. In his words, "it must be said that these photos are an attempt of fraud committed by the researchers and medical scientists involved, as far as they assert that these structures are viruses or even isolated viruses." This fact led me to the stunning realization that I have been sharing with you. I know it might be hard to believe, but it's true -- there is no such thing as the West Nile Virus! You can see the photos of claimed to be viruses for yourself at (www.neue-medizin.com/lanka2.htm) .
Viruses can supposedly infect other tissues and organisms because they can pass through cells. The proof of an infectious virus like West Nile rides on the existence of some entity that can enter into and damage a cell, then replicate itself and exit that cell in order to pass the infection to the surrounding cells. Now, there is such a thing as a virus, but true viruses are far different creatures than the ones we have been taught to fear; they are found in very simple organisms like algae. In more evolved life forms, like animals and humans, cells contain bacteria called Mitochondria; but these things cannot leave the cell. Viruses can leave cells. In any case where viruses have been proven to exist like in algae, they don't cause disease; they always turn out to be a helpful and supportive part of the ecosystem of the organism. Dr. Lanka states: "Actually in diseases, neither in the diseased organism nor in a body fluid, one has never seen or isolated a structure which one could characterize as a virus. The allegation of the existence of any disease-inducing virus is a transparent fraud, a deadly lie with dramatic consequences". In other words, there cannot be such a thing as a West Nile Virus. It is a deadly lie (www.klein-klein-aktion.de/contents/Bird_Flu/bird_flu.html) .
The term virus comes from the Latin word for poison or venom, which is probably related to the Sanskrit word visha, meaning toxin or poison (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plural_of_virus) . What the modern pseudo scientists are calling a virus is most likely the reaction of the body to a poison or poisons.
The theory of West Nile Virus is that mosquitoes drink the blood of sick birds, and then pass it along to humans. We hear about how birds or people test positive for the West Nile Virus. But how are they testing positive for the virus since there is no virus? Different tests which are claimed to indicate the presence of West Nile Virus are not testing for a virus. Rather these tests indicate that some antibodies are present in the blood which are indicators of environmental poisoning more than anything else.
Even with positive tests for the claimed West Nile Virus (WNV) -
1) The vast majority who have a positive WNV test have no symptoms. (A clear sign that that test doesn't tell you too much.)
2) A smaller percentage who have a positive test have had mild symptoms, such as a rash, diarrhea, or fatigue. (Never mind that these symptoms can be from other things, it is assumed a virus caused them.)
3) Less than 1% who have a positive test have Encephalitis, an acute inflammation in the brain.
To protect us from this supposed hazard, the government believes it needs to spray insecticide to kill either adult mosquitoes or mosquito larva. The problem is not necessarily the spraying of insecticide, but that the insecticide is sprayed in neighborhoods on people's homes. Without consent, mosquito fogging is equivalent to dumping toxic chemicals on your property, a violation of State, Federal, and International laws, including the Nuremberg Code. Spraying poisons on your body, or such that you will inhale them, is a physical and violating trespass of your space.
Even if mosquitoes had West Nile Virus (which they don't) some of the nation's leading health experts, like Professor Samuel Epstein of the University of Illinois School of Public Health, believe wide spread mosquito spraying is a really bad idea. Dr. Epstein along with several other leading scientists wrote a report against mosquito fogging. The reason is due to "friendly fire." Spraying large clouds of chemicals in the air not only kills mosquitoes, it also kills the mosquitoes' natural predators, and exposes children, pregnant women, people who are chemically sensitive, those with allergies or asthma, and everyone else unnecessarily to some very dangerous chemicals. The mosquitoes then come back much quicker than the natural predators, such as ladybugs, that feed on them. Thereafter they reproduce, uninhibited, in even greater numbers which of course justifies more mosquito spraying. You can read the science report where experts call for the cessation of mosquito spraying at: (www.beyondpesticides.org/mosquito/documents/Open%20Letter.pdf) .
Single exposures to pesticides (like those used in fogging) can trigger chronic fatigue, allergies, and a loss of libido. Long-term exposure to pesticides can cause birth defects, infertility, genetic damage, cancer and many other health problems. Of course the report also outlines safe and sane approaches to controlling mosquitoes -- which don't carry viruses anyways -- without exposing humans to known-to-be-dangerous chemicals. When there are safe and natural methods for controlling mosquitoes, why expose people to dangerous chemicals?
Both aerial and ground based mosquito control chemicals (Anvil, Evergreen, Pyrenone) usually contain a known hormonal disruptor and cancer-causing agent: piperonyl butoxide. They also contain pyrethrins, which can interfere with nerves and brain function, harm animals, environment. Pyrethrins don't degrade immediately but linger in the environment for weeks or longer.
More Mosquitoes = Less West Nile Virus
Those areas where there are clusters of dead birds found are not areas that are dense in mosquito populations. For example, how many mosquitoes have you noticed in densely packed urban areas close to freeways? About none. Meanwhile, I live in the forest, and there are millions of mosquitoes up here. I get bitten all the time. If there were really diseased mosquitoes carrying WNV, you would think they would come out of the forest. After all it is called West Nile Virus implying that it came from deep in the jungles near the Nile river. If mosquitoes were carriers there would be a correlation between higher mosquito populations and more WNV. But there just isn't. People don't like mosquitoes in general, but they are here to stay -- all trillion trillion of them. We cannot get rid of all insect life with poisons in an attempt to stop a fairy tale virus.
The real danger involved in WNV is not the faux virus; it's all the chemicals we are exposed to. For example, DEET causes neurological illness very similar to the disease claimed to be WNV, especially in children. And vector control agencies usually encourage the use of it (www.pesticide.org/DEET.pdf) . It is quite possible that many supposed cases of WNV are actually poisoning from the DEET that is meant to stop infection from the WNV that doesn't exist.
Dubious Sources For One Common Mosquito Chemical
The label of Pyrenone 25-5, which is sprayed in neighborhoods here in California, states it is "Public Health Insecticide." The label implies that poisoning people will improve "public health" (www.fightthebite.net/download/labels/PYR25l.pdf) . Pyrenone 25-5 is made by the now infamous Bayer Pharmaceutical Giant, which was originally part of I.G. Farben. I.G. Farben made chemicals for the Holocaust and used slave labor. Dr. Otto Bayer was I.G. Farben's research director and worked with Americans to develop chemical weapons (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IG_Farben) . Bayer, in the mid 1980's, had a hemophiliac medication, mostly given to children, pulled from the U.S. market because patients were dying from it. The medication turned up positive for AIDS virus tests and must have been tainted with something, since like WNV there is no such thing as the AIDS virus. Bayer then knowingly took those tainted doses and, while the FDA turned a blind eye, sent millions of dollars worth to Europe, Latin American, and Asian Countries (www.youtube.com/watch?v=XS3mhjt7TrY) .
Mosquito Control, Or Population Control?
In California, where they are using Bayer's Pyrenone 25-5, many of the mosquito control districts have an alarming logo. The logo shows a triangle, usually with the tip pointed downward, indicating population reduction, with images of people and a mosquito. Why are people on the logo of mosquito control districts? Are people now considered "pests" to be controlled, along with the mosquitoes and rats on the logo? Population control is not an American phenomenon, by the way.
Take a look at this population control propaganda image from India, which encourages parents to have only one child. The logo states "One Is Fun" (www.knowledgedrivenrevolution.com/Articles/200712/20071217_Bomb_World...) .
Now look at the similar images from these mosquito control sources (not all mosquito control districts use this logo, but several do). The images are a bit tiny, but you can still see the similarities.

Orange County Vector Control -- (www.ocvcd.org) (logo on top left)
Society for vector control -- (www.sove.org) (logo is on the bottom right of the page)
The website for the promotion of WNV fogging has a logo with people on it and is called the "I'm One" Program, which sounds very similar to "One Is Fun." What does "I'm One" have to do with mosquito fogging?? And why is there a mosquito in red and a human in red? Red usually is the color of a target (www.mosquito.org/im_one/about_im_one.asp) .
West Nile Virus Is Really Caused By Pollution
Researchers Jim West and David Crowe have been working tirelessly to expose the WNV fraud. Mr. West has researched other so-called viruses, and documented the true cause of polio. Polio also is not caused by a virus but by industrial pollution, most famously by DDT poisoning. DDT mainly came from cows eating pesticide-laden foods, which then showed up in high concentrations in milk and ice cream products. Mr. West believes WNV is not a virus but a "cellular response to environmental poisoning." Mr. West bases his research upon West Nile virus case recordings. When one is poisoned, certain things in the body change; for example, there are changes to blood serum and genes. And the test for WNV is not testing for a virus, but is actually measuring indications of bodily responses to environmental stress.
Mosquito control departments track the prevalence of WNV primarily by collecting dead birds. In most cases, the bird is tested for the presence of disease using the inaccurate WNV test. If the test turns out positive, then the assumption is automatically made that the bird must have died from WNV and not something else. This is the same as examining a dead body and stating that the person died of the cold virus because there were some antibodies in his blood. Never mind that he was 96 years old and didn't have a cold when he died; the belief is that a virus did it! Millions of birds die everyday, and some of them test positive in the researcher's lab. That does not mean they died from a virus, though. Coincidentally, of the 16 people who supposedly die from WNV in California every year, many or all of them already have compromised immune systems. Many of the people who supposedly die from WNV are elderly.
Rather than the virus being the culprit of bird deaths, there is another more plausible explanation. Mr. West writes, "Traditionally, bird behavior has served as an indicator of environmental quality. Birds are truly 'miner's canaries' -- reliable air assay tests" (www.geocities.com/noxot/wnvDBcty.htm) . The canary, which is more sensitive than humans to the presence of air pollutants, goes into the mine with the miner. If it gets sick or dies the miner knows he needs to leave the mine. So in all these counties indentifying sick birds, the dead birds could be an indication of the health of the environment, and not necessarily how much of the West Nile fairy tale virus there is.
Think about polluted ocean water. If ocean water has a bunch of sewage dumped into it, there might be a warning sign on the beach that states that the water has a high bacterial count. But the bacterial count is secondary to the fact that the sewage just got dumped into the ocean. The bacteria did not cause the ocean to be toxic -- the sewage did! In the same way, the prevalence of some type of positive test claimed to be WNV is akin to the bacteria in the ocean. WNV is the result, and not the cause, of a polluted ecosystem.
In other countries where there were epidemics of bird deaths, the deaths have been linked to poisoning and not to a virus. In one case, "scientists" initially claimed it was a virus. Upon careful investigation it was found that the epidemic was caused by birds eating agricultural seeds coated with poison (pesticide) (www.geocities.com/noxot/wnvDBcty.htm) .
In observing data from 62 counties in New York, Mr. West found that counties with poor air quality had a high incidence of positive WNV test results. Again, the positive test result has little or no correlation to the existence of WNV virus because... there is no such thing as WNV. In places with good air quality, there are little or no incidences of WNV positive test results. Mr. West also correlated the prevalence of WNV with the prevalence of MTBE in gasoline. It is highly likely that WNV positive test results are caused by the poisoning of birds from pollution -- primarily from cars or factories. Gasoline exhaust is a pollutant, whether or not it contains MTBE. (Remember, if someone turns their car on in a garage and keeps the doors closed, it could kill them.)
That WNV positive results are a result of environmental pollution is further backed up by evidence in Santa Clara County, near where I live. Birds claimed to have died from WNV are clustered next to freeways and some industry. The areas where they are found are clogged with cars and are geographically low lying, meaning they generally don't have good breezes. The densest pockets of WNV bird finds are often next to major highways, as can be seen in the map at this link: (www.sccgov.org/SCC/docs/Vector%20Control%20District%20(DIV)/images/Map%20for%20Mosquito%20Search.jpg) .
Sick birds are the result of environmental pollution. Birds dying from illness (and not old age) should be a sign that something is wrong with our environment, not that some evil virus has caught hold and is killing all of them. Given that pollution and pesticides make birds sick, what would make the problem of dead birds worse? That's right, spraying more poison in the air -- i.e., mosquito fogging.
Let's not continue fooling ourselves with tales of a fake disease made to sound like a scary and dangerous plague from Africa -- West Nile Virus. Let's point our fingers at a real cause of disease: environmental pollution caused by our modern lifestyle. And let's look for a real cure: cleaning up the pollution, not spraying more chemicals.
Now's a good time to look for ways to change the way we live, and to open up to the infinite possibilities for the end of destructive and deadly behaviors (such as spraying dangerous chemicals on people without their consent). Below you'll find some California state laws that prohibit mosquito spraying. It is highly likely that similar laws exist in your state to protect the people from harmful sprays. Why is the government violating its own laws and tenets? And who is continuing to allow this to happen? Spraying under false pretenses constitutes public fraud and endangerment as well. I understand that federal law prohibits making false representations regarding claims about the safety of pesticides. The pesticides used in mosquito fogging are not safe. Take action to stop them in your area! Create a local action group or join one, and contact your local city and state public representatives. Get angry, get frustrated, get mad and let the world know, that you will not allow your community to be exposed to chemicals to protect against diseases that are not real. Remember, the government is supposed to protect your health, not try to poison you. Let "authorities" who are promoting lies and propaganda about viruses know your opinion on this and forward this article to as many people as possible. Please send a copy to your local vector control department (poison spraying department); your mayor, and your city, state and federal representatives. See what they say.
And don't forget:
There is no such thing as the West Nile Virus.
