Brazil to Release Millions of Mutant GM Mosquitoes

Brazil to release millions of dangerous GM mosquitoes onto the public

Yournewswire

Scientists in Brazil are planning on unleashing millions of genetically modified mosquitoes into the public in an attempt to stop the spread of the Zika virus.

Despite the fact that evidence shows that GM mosquitoes were responsible for the deadly virus spreading across the globe, scientists have been given the go-ahead by the government to release the GM mosquitoes into the wild

Phys.org reports:

They will mate with the females of the ordinary mosquitoes, spawning babies with a genetically inbuilt flaw that causes them to die quickly.

With their work done, the modified father mosquitoes will then give up the ghost themselves—as they are genetically programmed to do.

Oxitec says its factory in the town of Piracicaba, northwest of Sao Paulo, can produce 60 million mutant mosquitoes a week.

Piracicaba is the world’s “first and biggest factory” of genetically modified mosquitos, said Oxitec president Hadyn Parry.

“This is the only place where we have a factory like this. We can use this as a hub for Brazil,” said Parry, who traveled to Piracicaba for the plant opening.

Currently their only Brazilian customer is the city of Piracicaba, “but we are having conversations with several municipalities and states,” Parry said.

Mosquitoes by the millions

According to the firm, five field tests that they conducted between 2011 and 2014—in Panama and the Cayman Islands, as well as the northeastern Brazilian state of Bahia—showed the population of wild Aedes aegypti insects dropped by 90 percent after the mutant mosquitoes were released.

Oxitec does not yet have a sales permit from Brazil’s Anvisa health authorities, and there are no epidemiological studies showing whether mosquito-carried diseases drop after the factory-bred insects are released.

Parry is not concerned. “We are still waiting for Anvisa approval—we have no date for it, but we expect it for 2017,” he said.

And none of this has stopped the mayor of Piracicaba from signing a four-year, $1.1 million deal with Oxitec.

In its first wave, the company will release 10 million factory-bred mosquitos each week into this city of 360,000 people.

The need for insect control is pressing, as the summer in the southern hemisphere approaches and the mosquito population—and cases of the diseases that they carry—is likely to boom.

As of July nearly 1.4 million cases of dengue were recorded in Brazil, following the record 1.6 million cases in 2015, according to health ministry figures.

In the same period 174,000 cases of Zika were reported.

  • WARNING! These genetically modified parasites are the cause of the Zika virus. They altered the genes of these male mosquitoes in a manor that is designed to during mating process make the female mosquitoes sterilized. What has happening instead is that the modifications intending to sterilize female mosquitoes is being transferred through secretion during feeding on human subjects. The altered genomes are transferred to human beings creating the problems that are wrongly associated with Zika. The Zika virus has been around for a very long time and has never before been connected to anything beyond flue like symptoms.

    Watch closely as the mosquitoes are released the Zika virus will go absolutely wild. The WHO and the CDC will then require everyone to get vaccinated. If history has revealed anything we can be confident that the vaccinations will have other eugenic components included like mercury, man made nano-viruses or robots. This is a stealth attack on the reproductive rights of the populous by eugenicist such as Bill Gates.

    This single campaign will cause many perspective parents to reconsider having children altogether, render the children that are born by risk taking parents retarded a reality that will effectively increasing the fear among others who may be considering starting a family. It will increase the incidence of abortion beyond what is imaginable. Talk about a successful endeavor. If we don’t spread this truism, if the people don’t start rejecting their cruelty only the corrupt bloodlines of the elite will prosper. The right of the common man to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness will exist no more!

    The Wikileaks emails have proved beyond any reasonable doubt that there are criminals in charge of our government. We must knowing their cunning ways place every single detail put out by them under immense scrutiny, always doubting, consistently questioning and religiously investigating each of their assertions. We need to see and treat these criminals like the crooks they are. Perhaps over the next three years, during this time of tribulation we the people can fill the prisons the elite have so graciously constructed for common Americans with the real criminals, the Politicians of Mass Destruction who currently fill the White House.

    God’s prophet has recently finished his inspired book entitled Prophesy Against the Nations. Watch for it if you want to know what is happening, why and what you need to do in order to survive what is directly before us. The book is an easy and very informative read. I highly recommend it to anyone still imprisoned by the false teaching of the harlot or plainly put, those believing they have an immortal soul, that this spirit they don’t really have ascends to heaven/descends to hell, who practice the pagan rituals of Christmas, Easter and Sunday worship. You will learn scriptural truth free from the perverted imagination of man.
