Have any of you girls heart of the Zita virus? Apparently it is spread through a mosquito bite.

Haven't heard about this! This is scary, because mosquitos LOVE me!

It's called the Zika virus with a "k" ;)
But yes, definitely not a good thing to have and to look into learning about if you're traveling (especially to Brazil, I believe it is very bad there right now). Mosquitoes carry so many viruses and diseases it's awful!

It is a virus that is especially dangerous for expectant women. Some babies born to women carrying the virus have had babies with unusually small heads. There have been very few reported cases in Canada, and then to people travelling in Soiuh America.

I heard about how dangerous it is to those who are pregnant. :(

Yes you are right. It IS ZIKA Thanks for that. Actually there are lots of pegnant women in the USA that are suffering from this.From what I read it is transferred by the mosquito yes, but it is the human male that transfers it to his partner. Imagine.....
