No, its more than very unlikely, b/c, when any animal digests the remains of another, the enzymes within its digestive tract break the protein of the victim down into the simplest building blocks of life, which are then reassembled by the consuming animals cells into the proteins it requires. This is a very specific chemical process whereby only the proper building blocks can be formed into the chains of ribonucleic acid derivatives that form the protein chains. Errors occur almost exclusively through the original gene being damaged by radiation, chemical carcinogens or old age shortening the chains. So it just doesn't matter what the food source is, if it can be broken down into usable building blocks, it depends on the existing genes as to what those building blocks can be made into.

Exactly, when birds eat these male mosquitos will that GM crap effect their reproduction also.

the problem with the whole scenario is that the dengue fever spreading mosquito (Aedes aegypti) only lives around the house and do not breed in swamps, they prefer to breed around people in containers like pot plant bases and old tyres etc.....
the easiest way to fight dengue fever is to actually clean up around your own neighbourhood and remove anything that collects water, far cheaper than funding GM mosquitoes

The construction has caused the water table to raise which in turn causes them to thrive. So something has to be done to reduce the population of them or stop the development. I don’t care what they do, as long as they do something. Do you realize that mosquitoes are the single most dangerous creature on the planet. That was what it was ranked on discovery channel, it is because of the decease it spreads.

So how exactly does this work?
The technology comes from Oxitec, a spin-out company from Oxford University, which inserts a “dominant lethal gene” into insects. This enables males to produce viable sperm and fertilise females, but the resulting larvae always die before hatching. The idea is to release vast numbers of sterile male insects – at least 10 times more than the wild population. They swamp the native males and mate with all available females, which fail to produce viable offspring.
Also what about when the female mosquito mates with the male mosquito and then the female mosquito pricks you?
Where else will this be introduced?
Well they are hoping in Malaysia and
Authorities in Florida, Brazil and Panama are also considering using the method, according to Oxitec
Where does this money come from?
program, funded by a $19.7 million grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
Or, when the bugs are eaten by birds or fish, the gene enters the DNA, and modifies the bird or fish. They in turn become sterile. Man eventually eats one of these genetically modified birds or fish, in turn, making them sterile as well.
We all know that the thief Gates wants to depopulate the earth, so I'm not surprised that he is involved with this end game plot.edit on 2-12-2010 by Violater1 because: (no reason given)

Your title says "secretly" released. I thought it was supposed to
be a secret. How was it secretly done? You somehow know about
this, so why do you say secretly? Just curious.....
