It's well known that bacteria can transfer genes to other bacteria and even transfer genes to yeast cells. This exchange of genes can lead to genetic recombination. For example, bacteria can exhange plasmids (little circulair DNA molecules). These plasmids may contain genes that serve as a drug resistant. The transfer of this plasmid will make the other bacteria, who is recieving the plasmid, resistant aswell. So the exchange of genetic material between bacteria and yeast is a means to pass on genes which will lead to better adaptation to changing enviroments and in turn leads to higher survival rate.

Now researchers, have discoverd that gene transfer can also take place between a human cell and a bacterial cell. This is the conclusion of a research done, studying Gonnorhea bacteria.

Alex jones might be whacky entertainment for some but?
throw a senerio at you guys
news.nationalgeographic.com...

take all three sites info
A super rabies influenza weaponized nano prion
there you now have Zombie virus Solanum
what do you think nature would do if someone where to have this virus inside of them or the potental just needs to be slightly tweaked. nature will mutate it's own varation.

You might say that's impossible does it seem so far fetched now, you take the survival out of a human the ability for the immune to fight adapt you given a flue shot containing iinfluenza rabies now the weaponized nano the prions fold you have swapping going on trasfering information super resistance perhaps some ticks Mononegavirales viruses spread.

Nature is natural and will adapt to eat it mutate it to kill it. wonder how many are lab rats as the Bio weapons department perfect it. they pratice on people all the time.Is this old news or new news?

Play with the idea!

In the article it says that the researchers have found this to be a recent evolutionary event. Who knows what might happen when more bacteria develop a way to steal DNA form their human hosts. They may develop whole new ways to defend themselves against the human immunesystem. Maybe the body will no longer be able to recognize the bacterial cells as a foreign cell. Or maybe the bacteria will evolve in a whole different way once it starts recombining DNA from humans with it's own DNA.

I find this a very interesting and shocking discovery!
