Malaysia Releases Genetically Modified Lab Mosquitoes To Battle Dengue Fever


www.theaustralian.com.au

The field test is meant to pave the way for the official use of genetically engineered Aedes aegypti male mosquitoes to mate with females and produce offspring with shorter lives, thus curtailing the population. Only female Aedes aegypti mosquitoes spread dengue fever, which killed 134 people in Malaysia last year.

This news is rather disturbing as not only are mosquitoes a necessary component of the
natural food chain...they are also important pollinators in the same way that bees are!

Even though they are a nuisance, without them, the entire food chain could collapse!

Is it not enough that the honeybees are near stuggling from CCD, and many strains of Bumblebees are near extinction!

In addition, 22 Malaysian and regional non-governmental organisations (NGO) have expressed doubts about the safety and effectiveness of the genetically modified (GM) male mosquitoes!

They wanted a debate before the mosquitos were released, but the genetically modified mosquitos were released anyways.

However, its too late for discussion. I sure hope this does not take a turn for the worse.

Yet at the same time, I cant see how it wont with with GM insects.




The Malaysian government-run Institute for Medical Research said in a statement received on Wednesday it released the non-biting sterile male lab mosquitoes in an uninhabited forest area in eastern Malaysia

I can hardly believe the audacity of this action, its going to come back to bite us, just watch!


Scientists at British biotechnology giant Oxitec recently developed a genetically-modified (GM) mosquito that, apart from a specific chemical antibiotic, is unable to successfully repopulate. And the company recently released millions of these GM mosquitoes in the Cayman Islands to see what would happen — and they did so without proper approval or announcement — prompting outrage by experts and the public over the unknown consequences of conducting such an irresponsible experiment.

Oxitec released the mosquitoes last year, but only just recently let the public know about it. The company has attempted to justify its decision by claiming its GM mosquitoes may help fight the spread of dengue fever by reducing or eliminating the wild mosquito population. But nobody knows what happens when these GM mosquitoes interact with other animals and humans, or how their altered genes will disrupt the living environment....


Not only are mosquitoes a necessary component of the natural food chain, representing the prey of various creatures like birds and bats, but they are also important pollinators in the same way that bees are. Even though they appear to be a nuisance, without them, the entire food chain could collapse.

This was already done in the carribean.The result seems to be spread of the dengue, and not the eradication.
I believe that Miami was also sprayed too....interesting to find out what Miamis dengue stats are maybe?

Yes, I read a report that dengue fever increased also.
This action is unethical, dangerous, and irreversible.

Who will be held to account?

So many ways to kill us....

choices... choices... choices...


I think people are waking up, finally.

I bet "they" beg like babies before this is through...

*daydreams of these mad scientists locked in rooms with these mosquitos*

This is actually nefarious and I do think it paves the way to the "vaccine" mosquito.


In addition to funding Monsanto, the Gates Foundation has also funded the development of genetically modified mosquitoes. The mosquitoes, developed by the University of Queensland, are modified to stop the spread of a virus carried by the insects. This technology also allows scientists to modify the insects in other ways, such as engineering the mosquito to produce a vaccine in their saliva. The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases in Bethesda is currently working on a transgenic mosquito that is essentially a mobile vaccination. If it is successfully implemented, unsuspecting targets will be injected with a vaccination, even if the person is opposed to the science behind most vaccinations

Its not wonder that :


A total 29 organisations in Malaysia and 87 from abroad have also stated their apprehension in open letters to the authorities

Yep. We sure have.
Id say that its really clear on this one, I dont think they want to wipe out dengue fever.
Nice cover story though, isnt it?

I'm going to have to write a song about a land of sheeple...



who wake up and cry...

"help, help... I've been double crossed..."


As the swarms of mosquitos come flying through to "inoculate" them against the next "pandemic causing super-flu" like the Swine Flu or Bird Flu...

David Dees has such profound art.

Think he will do one on mosquitos soon?

I can see it now, a mosquito with a needle...

I am still waiting on your song...it could be a great hit.

You could even create a website and do this with various topics.

Kind of reminiscent of Al Frankens songs, on Rush!

I am all for it, please please please!

I'm trying to... but my music is so blunted by PTSD that I can't do much. I've been using painting as therapy to try to spark my creativity again. I used to always hear music in my head, and was even able to control it and compose music al in my head... sadly that went away when I was in the army.

And then there is the singing... I can play just about any instrument but I can't sing worth a darn.

You wouldn't happen to be a good singer would you?

Piano,

I hope your painting works wonders...
Sorry I dont sing except in the car, or in a group.

Done some caroling...I dont think this counts.

Hmmm.....I just think that playing with Mother Nature is
very dangerous. Who knows what the end would be?
