Because health officials noticed an alarming spike in babies born with unusually small heads, a condition called microcephaly.
So if it’s not the Zika virus, what is it?
At this point it is anybody’s guess.
But I have my suspicions.
Stop the Tdap vaccination of pregnant women: the risks of this vaccine to a developing fetus outweigh the benefits.
Stop giving the MMR to women of childbearing age: this triple-live-virus vaccine is known to cause microcephaly and may be the real cause of the Brazilian epidemic.
Severe microcephaly epidemic? Over!
Pharmaceutical companies and biotech firms are in a fast and furious race to develop another vaccine … against the Zika virus.
