The Increase In Birth Defects In Brazil Have Been Linked To The Zika Virus But New Information Challenges That Claim According To Dr. Sergio Cortes. Read more

The Increase In Birth Defects In Brazil Have Been Linked To The Zika Virus But New Information Challenges That Claim According To Dr. Sergio Cortes.

When several cases of microcephaly were reported in the same areas that Zika virus was spreading, the Ministry of Health director Sergio Cortes and his staff came to the conclusion that both of those issues were related. Most of the Zika virus cases were reported in the Northern areas of Brazil in April and May, and by August there were enough reported cases of microcephaly in the North to make a case for the relationship that exists between the Zika virus and birth defects.

The Zika virus has been moving around the world for more than 75 years. The first cases of the Zika virus in Brazil didn’t come to light until April 2015. Very little was known about the virus except that is causes fever, muscle aches and rash in most people, and the carrier of the virus was the invasive pest known as the Aedes aegypti mosquito. There weren’t any significant studies done on the virus and no vaccine was made to protect populations in Africa, Asia and South America from the virus.

But during his research on the Zika virus, Sergio Cortes discovered an interesting fact. Doctors in the Northern towns of Brazil where the microcephaly cases were reported are the same towns that were crop-sprayed with a chemical larvicide that produces a genetic malfunction in mosquitoes. The crop-spraying started in 2014. The chemical larvicide, also known as Pyriproxyfen, is the solution used to eradicate disease-carrying mosquitoes. Dr. Cortes has more information about microcephaly and the Zika virus on his website. The relationship between Pyriproxyfen and microcephaly does make sense since microcephaly is a rare condition. There have been few cases of microcephaly in countries that have reported cases of the Zika virus for years.

Another interesting fact associated with the Zika virus is out of 404 confirmed microcephaly cases in Brazil, only 17 women tested positive for the virus. That means that Dr. Cortes and his staff at the Ministry of Health are getting closer to identifying the cause of the microcephaly outbreak.

Nonetheless, whatever the cause, Dr. Cortes recommends that pregnant women take extra precautions and avoid mosquito breeding grounds. The problem is, most pools of water can be breeding grounds for rhe Aedes aegypti mosquito. Dr. Cortes has more information about the Aedes aegypti mosquito and the Zika virus on his LinkedIn page.

Sergio Cortes’ Advice on the Best Attires to Wear During Summer Season

As the summer approaches, a lot of people tend to worry about the rising temperatures because they lead to excessive sweating. The rise in temperature is inconvenience to those who sweat a lot especially in the armpits, according to a Brazilian medical expert Dr. Sergio Cortes. People feel ashamed when they are in public areas, more so when greeting others with a hug, because they are afraid of the stench. Dr. Cortes advises people to wear appropriate clothes during the summer in order to minimize excessive sweating.
According to the expert, several people associate the stench to the areas they are coming from especially the feet and the underarms, and he says that those areas have no smell, but it is the sweat. Sergio stresses that there are bacteria in these areas that cause the odor, and they become active when temperatures increase. People should be cautious when choosing the right attires to wear during the summer season so as to mitigate the adverse effects of sweating according to Sergio Cortes. He attributes that people should put more emphasis on materials, colors and sizes of their clothes. These are the major contributing factors that lead to sweating.
Tight and dark clothes are not the best to wear during this season because they retain extra heat and humidity. The expert advises people to go for light-colored attires because they are ideal and makes the body to be more comfortable. As for the best types of tissue to use, Dr. Cortes tells people to choose the more natural ones like linen, cotton, silk, and satin. He attributes that cotton is regarded as a natural fiber that makes the skin to breathe properly. Additionally, linen is also suitable for high temperatures because it has lighter colors.
Another favorable artificial fiber that is made from cellulose is the viscose. This is fresh and light tissue that is capable of absorbing moisture faster. Silk is also another alternative that is on the expert’s list. It is soft, smooth and an appropriate fabric that should accompany looser clothes because it leaves the skin breathing freely. Satin is an interesting material according to Dr. Sergio Cortes because different materials are used to make it. It is comparable to silk or cotton because it’s very light. Dr. Cortes is found on Twitter and on LinkedIn.
