“The GMO mosquito is created by injecting synthetic DNA into thousands of mosquito eggs until finally one of the eggs accepts the DNA into its genome, creating two genes. One is a lethal gene, synthesized from E. coli and the herpes simplex virus. It’s lethal because it creates a protein called tTAV which interferes with a cell’s activity, killing the infected mosquito before it can reach adulthood.
That’s right. they’re injected with a LETHAL GENE synthesized with E. coli and herpes by a biotech company working on this for years who certainly has your health in their best interest (DRIPPING with sarcasm) Get ready Florida.
- the feds going to door to door collective urine and blood samples from scared Florida residents to check them for Zika which you can click to read about here
- or the massive “all out assault” on Zika aerial spraying that is going on in Miami in surrounding cities of a dangerous neurotoxin that Puerto Rico REFUSED be sprayed because they knew it could be deadly was not bad enough!?!?!?
- Now this!??!?!?!
As the Zika virus continues its massive epidemic spread in Florida (that’s sarcasm), the feds approve their master plan (really, that’s what they call it) to release many MILLIONS of mutant mosquitoes there in hopes of suppressing the disease-carrying insect’s population. In fact, The Washington Post did an article stating how you should considering yourself lucky to be bit by a GMO Mosquito. It’s that’s crazy.
I did the article about how the feds (yes the feds, it was on CNN) were going door to door here in Florida collecting urine and blood samples in a highly populated area of Miami to see if they had Zika. THEN they decided to start aerial spraying all across Miami and surrounding cities just like they did in NYC and other cities, all under the guise of that killer Zika virus. It might even get as bad as Ebola did hear in the the US!
The Food and Drug Administration (aka the Food and THUG administration) has issued its final environmental assessment of the plan, saying that releasing these dangerous creatures starting in Key Haven, a suburb of Key West, “will not have significant impacts on the environment.” (it will have an impact but the sold out, paid off, bought off EPA doesn’t really give a crap about that impact. People and our fragile ecosystem will suffer.
Some scientists and MDs say the impact will be “completely devastating”.
Now it’s up to the people who live there to vote in November to stop this trial of releasing GMO mosquitos on us all. That’s right! You vote on it in November. So please, for the love of God and your families- don’t let this sci fi experiment of a night mare happen to us or our children!
The project was proposed by the British biotech company (who some nick name “Satan) Oxitec and has been under review since 2011, well before Zika virus exploded throughout South America, up through Mexico and Puerto Rico and into Florida. But the decision came just days after the first local transmissions by mosquitoes were confirmed in the U.S., in Miami-Dade and Broward counties. Oh and did we mention that Puerto Rico refused that nasty aerial spraying and said it’s a neurotoxin with devastating consequences and refused to let that be sprayed.
Meanwhile Floridians here in our sunshine state don’t seem to put up a fight as the planes rain the poison down upon us starting at dawn last week. They said if you’re sensitive or have allergies don’t go outside. I had my own family members and friends who were sprayed in South Florida in tears and some leaving the state to go stay with relatives up North.
“We read the newspapers, we see the disease coming, and I think that’s added a little bit of urgency and prioritization to that work,” Hadyn Parry, CEO of Oxitec (the biotech company some nick name “Satan” told the Tampa Bay Times.
Funny how they admit this was all in the works before the NON epidemic of Zika ever started. But now that they have their excuse? They’re spraying us from the skies, releasing million up millions of GMO mosquitos upon us and unlike Puerto Rico who fought that crap, it’s business as usual here in the land of the tv Kardashian people who NEED TO to take a stand already and wake the hell up!
Parry’s Biotech company (nick named Satan) has been genetically modifying millions of Aedes aegypti mosquitoes in a lab with a synthetic protein that kills their offspring before they can emerge from larvae as adults and transmit the Zika virus or other diseases such as Dengue.
If wild female mosquitoes mate with sterile males, the population dies off rapidly.
Oxitec has already released millions of them in Brazil (which scientists say could be the reason for the birth defects- NOT the Zika virus!) Panama and the Cayman Islands. The results have been significant: They have reduced some local mosquito populations by more than 90 percent… Birth defects are skyrocketing and people sicker than ever, but dammit they killed those skeeters.
“I know a lot of people are scared of them because they’re genetically modified,” Sadie Ryan, a medical geographer at the University of Florida who is not affiliated with Oxitec, (editor’s note “wink wink” said in an interview with PBS NewsHour Weekend. “I think it’s a good idea.”
Do you Sadie? Thanks so much for that profound quote of yours! (NOT)
Ryan said that an island is ideal for a trial because Aedes aegypti mosquitoes do not travel very far during their lifetimes.
Sadly Key West isn’t really an island as you can throw a freaking stone to the land right next to it which is ultimately connected to a big ass state called Florida and connected to a big ass country called the US connected to North America. (oh not to mention Cuba down the road- but sure none of those pesky mosquitos will get on a boat or plane or car)
“You have to drown out the local population wherever you are, that’s why islands are a great place to do it,” she said.
Really? I’ve lived here more years than I can count and none of us call Key West an “island” due to it’s extremely close proximity to the rest of Florida which I could literally throw a rock to or swim (and I have)
A May 2015 report said that people who live in the Key West are divided. While some see the potential benefits of eradicating the mosquito that poses a threat to them, others worry about the unknown. One local resident said she’s scared and moving north. She’s 95 and seen what the government has done to destroy her beautiful state she was born and raised and had intended to die in, but now she’ll be going to live with relatives in the cold Midwest for rest of her days, despite her undying love for Florida. Poor thing.
Even if Floridians do vote to allow Oxitec to release the genetically modified mosquitoes there, (DON”T VOTE FOR IT!!!) Ryan said it would be more difficult to try it in a bigger metropolitan area like Miami because there are no clear boundaries.
Zika is also a sexually transmitted disease, and people from all over the world travel through Miami, so it may be difficult to contain the species or the virus, she said.
“It doesn’t mean we shouldn’t try,” she said.
It doesn’t seem to matter that we have a handful of cases (literally) in the state. Last we heard none are hospitalized and all are fine and no birth defects reported. But all bets are off with the massive aerial spraying and GMO sci fi skeeter being unleashed by the millions to wreack havoc on this once beautiful land that man in the name of skewed sold old “science” which used to be pure) will use upon us by biotech corporations and sold out politicians who care about one… thing… only… The bottom dollar. Not your health, not the health of the animals, land our kids, but money.
Vote against GMO Mosquitos on the November ballot. It might be more important than which one of them they pick to run the country.
