UC Davis has released a study saying they've detected no permanent adverse effects from aerial spraying for West Nile Virus. The University's Health System says they've been watching patient visits to hospitals and their data shows no significant uptick in visits related to exposure to pyrethirin, the chemical used in the spraying. The majority of the study information comes from 2005 period when spraying took place across Sacramento, Yolo and other counties.
