If the World Health Organization says that the reservoir of Zika Virus is "unknown," shouldn't scientists be checking the pigs in Brazil for antibodies to it

Zika virus is an emerging mosquito-borne virus that was first identified in Uganda in 1947 in rhesus monkeys through a monitoring network of sylvatic yellow fever. It was subsequently identified in humans in 1952 in Uganda and the United Republic of Tanzania. Outbreaks of Zika virus disease have been recorded in Africa, the Americas, Asia and the Pacific.
  • Genre: Flavivirus
  • Vector: Aedes mosquitoes (which usually bite during the morning and late afternoon/evening hours)

Is Truvada America's new Tuskegee Syphiis Experiment? Start-up company will deliver Truvada in San Francisco

"The Truvada website’s Patient Assistance Page identifies lactic acidosis as a potential side effect of taking the drug; this side effect is potentially life-threatening and serious even when it doesn’t result in death. Lactic acidosis is when your body tissue and blood becomes too acidic and has a lactate build up. In the past the FDA has withdrawn drugs (such as phenformin) for the potential development of this condition. I think this is not only misleading, but unethical to suggest that a drug that is potentially life-threatening has “virtually no side effects.” Especially when other drugs have been taken off shelves for the same side effect."

 Maybe people aren't taking Truvada because the whole thing smells a little bit too much like the Tuskegee Syphilis Experiment.

AIDS Healthcare Foundation Files FDA Complaint Against Gilead for Truvada PrEP Ads Promoting Off-label Use
