What makes you think I smoke? The fact that I advocate legalization?

Once a hospital gets a person in there they can claim just about any thing they want to when the body goes out. All these healthy gourmet soccer boys could have just very easily had something else altogether wrong with them. They were in a hospital where outbreaks tend to occur. And of course civil authorities would be looking as to just how they could capitalize most effectively on their demise. Especially if the hospital were at risk of being questioned. I question the credibility of the authority, with all you are saying. Especially hearing it was such a dramatic and isolated incident. Nothing prior nothing after.
You know the simple old expression, "ALWAYS QUESTION AUTHORITY".

Wrong again..........

There were being treated by private doctors in a private hospital.....
They had all gone for a 30 kilometer run along a river and days later the first signs appeared and blood test showed WNV.

I have seen many cases of WNV and dengue fever and both are real bad.
Very few survive the second time with Dengue also known as haemorragic fever

I suggest you go and look at what happens to people when bitten by a infected mosquito.......

No bites all day.
I am going to re-bait my hook and ask you all to go and Google "No such thing as West Nile Virus"
The governments "scientific" tests are inaccurate to say the least. They are making up untrue stores to con the public out of their cash. That is my opinion.
Monsanto and the other corporate chemical companies are evil and greedy for profits. That is my opinion.

You opinion is wrong but that does not matter.......

Google the flat earth society and you will find thousands of people that have a opinion that the earth is flat and scientist are telling a lie just to get your money.....

And there are probably more flat earth people than anti WNV people.....

My opinion is correct and it does matter.
Recently I have had several posters criticize me for my lack of scientific "proof" links to back up my opinions. Well any thing for a dime can be found to back up anything right or wrong it does not matter. So if people want proof they can do their own home work. My opinion is that my opinion carries as much weight as all of science. All science sooner or later is being disproved, leaving only my opinion.
My opinion is that there is no such thing as WNV epidemic worthy of the attention it is getting. It is only being put out there for political and greedy financial gain, stealing from the taxpayers, tremendously disrupting our ecological environment.
Thank you very much for the bite.

Sometimes you have to risk one kind of danger to ward off another. When the threat is mosquitoes carrying malaria, Lyme disease, or West Nile virus, you might want to slather yourself with DEET (N,N-diethyl-meta-toluamide), the powerful insect repellent that has been saving lives worldwide for more than 50 years.

Relative to the dangers of malaria, those from DEET are considered as benign as a kitten—unless you are a kitten, or any other household pet, on whom DEET acts as a powerful neurotoxin, according to the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advises against applying DEET on infants, or using it with sunscreen, because sunscreen has to be reapplied so frequently. And, as many grizzled hikers know, DEET can eat right through a tent. Do you really want to spray your face with a substance that can dissolve plastic?

If you must use a chemical product, know that the Food and Drug Administration recently approved topical-use permethrin and over-the-counter picaridin, both of which were already in widespread use in Europe and Asia. But the European Union lists permethrin as an endocrine disruptor, and it's been shown to cause tremors in dogs and cats, according to the National Pesticide Information Center. Of the two, picaridin is regarded as a healthier alternative.

The least toxic choice is to go natural. Tests show that ingredients like citronella, lemon eucalyptus, and geranium oils are less likely to cause side effects. So, in the name of outdoor journalism (if not hard science), I braved a few bites to determine whether natural repellents actually work. My finding: Yes, some do, but only if they're applied frequently. Bug sprays work by blurring the "I am a tasty meal" scent that attracts insects.

But that deception is fleeting. In buggy areas, you may have to recoat up to once an hour to get the potion to work. And remember: If you're in a place like Nigeria, where malaria kills more than 300,000 people a year, consider showering daily in DEET.

Yep. No reason to have those terrible "fact checkers" involved...right? Just make a stubborn ass out of yourself and hope everyone listens to rush and doesn't read the FACTS.
What a maroon. Keep up the good work; I'm sure your friends (the ones that aren't touched by WNV and who listen to rush) will sing your praises.
And those people that SUPPOSEDLY died? Well they're just faking it to get death benefits, or they died of something-else-only-you know-about....right??? Better get back on your meds before you get in trouble, poor fellah.

FYI,thank you very much for your educated opinion.
I am a lucky one Mosquitoes do not have much interest in me. My family has lived here for several generations, even way off in South East Asia I never found it necessary to risk using Deet.
One of my fellow soldiers a man from Wisconsin threatened to shoot me for just offering Deet to him because the Mosquitoes were bothering him so much. This was at a time when an Army helicopter was spraying to kill them off just a short distance away. He started to rant and rave about how dangerous the stuff "Deet" was to use. He was serious about shooting me if I pushed the issue.
I knew he was right. And many of us who came home had nervous disorders that were "unexplainable", well just a 2 and 2 together. Some of the fellows were douching themselves daily with that crap Deet. It definably dose not belong on babies!
The new products that you mention, well they are made by the same companies, companies like Monsanto.
I ask you why is it Monsanto felt the need to develop something more effective if the powers that be were telling us it was the most wonderful Mosquito repellent on the planet?
I have watched the same scenario happen over and over again with farm chemicals and Pharmaceutical drugs time and time again. The chemical companies change the name and or the chemical composition just slightly enough to get it reclassified and put it right back out on the market time again and again. With the cost of the anticipated law suits built right into the manufacturing selling price cost in anticipation of what is to surly come.
My point is that these evil companies will lie, cheat and steal even if it kills a large number of people for profit. Even more than WNV if there actually were such a thing. What I believe is it is a scam from the top of government to the bottom of it. And that they are all unaware of the hoax that they are going along with. Promoted by the greed of the chemical manufacturers. People can so easily be duped, especially when my friends the mosquito are biting them. They scream where is my Mommy, so easily.
What I would suggest is incorporating good old organic Garlic into ones summer diet.
