Looks like more "gifts" from the Plum Island facility have escaped.

Tick Borne ‘Powassan Virus’ Is Worse Than Lyme Disease

So now we have Bacterial Lyme Disease, Viral Powassan, and Alpha-gal blood allergic trigger ( which causes severe allergic reactions up to anaphylactic shock if you eat red meat)

newyork.cbslocal.com...


NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — It’s even worse than Lyme disease. Ticks in our area have been found to carry a rare, potentially life-threatening, virus. As CBS2’s Tracee Carrasco reported, doctors have warned that the Powassan virus, a rare, tick borne illness could be serious. It doesn’t have a treatment or a cure. “The doctor just has to support you during the acute illness and hope that you survive,” Dr. Daniel Cameron explained.

Lone Star ticks carry a sugar called alpha-gal, which is also found in red meat, but not in people. Normally, alpha-gal in meat poses no problems for people. But when a Lone Star tick bites a person, it transfers alpha-gal into the bloodstream. As a result, the person's body produces antibodies to fight the sugar. The next time that person eats red meat, their immune system responds to the alpha-gal in the meat and they suffer an allergic reaction that can include itching, burning, hives and even throat swelling, CBS News reported.

Really? Proteins in the blood stream trigger an allergic reaction? Better tell the vaccination Nazis to read the package inserts.

-Bovine proteins
-Chicken egg proteins
-Peanut oil proteins
-Human DNA

Gosh. I wonder if people are having allergic reactions to these things? Technocrats are saying it's so safe, they are going to force infants to get hyped 56 times before the age of 12. Must be OK then.

Ummm.. yeah.

All these diseases originate in the area of the Plum Island facility that happened to be an insect vector bio facility.

and how about the fact that the milk, meat, eggs and other dairy we eat come from animals that are given antibiotics, creating more drug-resistant strains of viruses and bacteria.. it's going to get a lot worse

Okay there was cold war research done but ended in 69 under Nixon. Russians even inspected the place to confirm that.

And the controversy is ongoing. Sorry about my reply earlier, redacted.

Is this possible evidence of their work in that region:


Although plasmids and other extrachromosoma. elements (ECEs) are recognized as key players i. horizontal gene transfer, their diversity an. dynamics among ecologically structured host populations in the wild remains poorly understood. Here w. characterized 187 ECEs from 660 Vibrio isolates previously categorized into 25 ecologically and genetically cohesive populations from a coasta. environment (Plum Island Sound, Ipswich, MA). ECEs are unevenly distributed among host populations and occur at higher frequency in free-living cells, suggesting influence of host lifestyle on EC carriage.

...

Many of the plasmid families contain low sequence diversity but are widespread among hos. populations, indicating high eco-evolutionary turnover. This includes non-transmissible ECE. suggesting that these are misnamed and transferred by currently unknown mechanisms. Finally, analysis of recent gene transfer among ECEs suggests that plasmids are highl. recombinogenic and represent an extensive network of gene transfer that has implications for horizonta. gene transfer among distantly related host.


The eco-evolutionary dynamics of extrachromosomal elements in environmental vibrio

Are these random loose plasmids and extrachromosomal elements (ECEs) in the area evidence of the genretic engineering or do these things naturally occur?

The phrase "transferred by currently unknown mechanisms" might be indicative of the possibility of intentional horizontal gene transfer.

Most people already have antigens that target the sugar Neu5Gc in Red meat. Now, is that the same sugar this article refers to? They used to think it was the protein, but have further isolated it to the sugar of the meat. Most of us are used to this sugar, but eating too much meat containing this can cause autoimmune and histamine responses.

Antibiotics don't affect viruses. Viruses change through mutation and transcription. We are always going to be at risk from mutated viral strains even if we punched a global reset on antibiotics.

Antibiotics create drug resistant strains because the bacteria who survive them can pass along the genes that gave them drug resistance to succeeding generations or even to each other and other species via plasmid transfer.
