West Nile Virus

Letter To
Maricopa Doctors

In Summary:
The children and adults who will be most prone to either a West Nile infection or harm from dangerous pesticides such as Anvil, basically can be the same individuals. In addition, some of the symptoms from both illnesses are similar. If precautions to protect against either the mosquitoes or the pesticide sprays are not sufficient and you have suspicious symptoms, check with your traditional or alternative physician. Consider other medical options, if you are not helped. If you are seriously ill, be sure to discuss your symptoms with a physician and obtain the necessary other laboratory documentation. It may be required in the future for medical or legal evaluations.

Remember, a West Nile viral infection is unlikely but possible. Sensitization to chemicals is much more apt to occur, especially if you have allergies or a weak immune system, and once this happens, you can be ill the rest of your life with flares of your original illness occurring after any future chemical exposures. We should not have to fear possible chemical poisoning in your own city and home from local governmental decisions. The treatment should never be worse than the disease and the benefit/risk ratio must always be in favor of continued good health.
