    Default Zika virus, Microcephaly (shrunken infant brains), Aedes mosquito, Brazil... another pandemic hoax?

    Coincidence?? Brazil is ground zero for the Zica virus...


    Genetic modification

    Ae. aegypti has been genetically modified to suppress its own species in an approach similar to the sterile insect technique, thereby reducing the risk of disease. The mosquitoes, known as OX513A, were developed by Oxitec, a spinout of Oxford University. Field trials in the Cayman Islands, Brazil and Panama have shown that the OX513A mosquitoes reduced the target mosquito populations by more than 90%.[12]

    [13] This mosquito suppression effect is achieved by a self-limiting gene that prevents the offspring from surviving. Male modified mosquitoes, which do not bite or spread disease, are released to mate with the pest females. Their offspring inherit the self-limiting gene and die before reaching adulthood - before they can reproduce or spread disease. The OX513A mosquitoes and their offspring also carry a fluorescent marker for simple monitoring. To produce more OX513A mosquitoes for control projects, the self-limiting gene is switched off (using the Tet-Off system) in the mosquito production facility using an antidote (the antibiotic tetracycline), allowing the mosquitoes to reproduce naturally. In the environment, the antidote is unavailable to rescue mosquito reproduction and so the pest population is suppressed.[14]

    The mosquito control effect is non-toxic and species-specific as the OX513A mosquitoes are Aedes aegypti and only breed with Ae. aegypti. The result of the self-limiting approach is that the released insects and their offspring die and do not persist in the environment.[15] [16]

    ¤=[Post Update]=¤

    In Brazil, the modified mosquitoes were approved by The National Biosecurity Technical Commission (CTNBio) for releases throughout the country. Now the city of Piracicaba is leading the world’s first municipal partnership releasing the OX513A mosquitoes.[17][18] The UK House of Lords has since called on the Government to support more work on genetically modified insects in the interest of global health.[19]

    This approach could also be applied to control Aedes albopictus, and the Anopheles mosquitoes that spread malaria.[20

    Good point

    Specially considering that living organisms have an amazing ability to use naturally-occurring mutations to adjust to their environment and survive. However, sometime deadly mutants are created for whatever reasons...

    Science, specially genetic engineering, is truly beautiful and scary at the same time.

    The summer Olympics should be a big success, just in time for all the visitors, staff and athletes to take the virus back to their corresponding countries in the middle of summer for most. Good times.

    This is kind of interesting in relation to this month of January, we got some nasty colds happening in my area, fever, and very nasty coughs, after a while it was necessary to visit doctor and we were prescribed tetraciclines, guess what? there are no tetraciclines in the city, and they stopped selling stock to the pharmacies since last December. And my guess is that it will be scarce if not impossible to get anymore.

    if Zika is a man made disease, it's a man made F A I L.

    it's weaker than Dengue & less virulent (less strains, lessened symptoms)...

    what you are seeing is more fear porn, we just had the CDC put out a travel warning to the USVI (I run a tourism business, can I sue for lost income? haha) because we had 1 confirmed case.... not quite Ebola levels, but it's sure hard to shake that fear porn habit.


    if you're deathly afraid of discomfort, or area already immunodeficiency or immunocompromised in someway maybe worry about it.

    It's been a while since we last heard of the WHO and pandemics scares...

    =========================================

    Zika virus spreading explosively, warns WHO


    Thu Jan 28, 2016 3:37PM


    World Health Organization (WHO) Director-General Margaret Chan (2nd R) ©AFP

    The head of World Health Organization (WHO) has voiced alarm over the Zika outbreak around the Americans, saying the virus is “spreading explosively.”

    Speaking at a meeting of WHO member states on Thursday in the Swiss city of Geneva, Director-General Margaret Chan said that the UN health agency is deeply concerned over the situation as the level of alarm over the virus has become “extremely high.”

    She said the mosquito-borne virus has gone from a “mild threat” to “alarming proportions."

    The WHO chief also called for an emergency meeting on the virus, which is taking hold across South and Central America and the Caribbean, on Monday to determine if the outbreak should be declared an international health emergency.

    Meanwhile, WHO Assistant Director Bruce Aylward has emphasized the importance of coordination among the member state to to prevent viruses from spreading.

    “This is an important consideration of the director-general in calling (the meeting) is to ensure that there are no inappropriate measures taken by member states in terms of travel or trade. That is a major consideration of the director-general,” Aylward said on Thursday.

    The Zika virus is suspected to cause serious birth defects. It is linked to microcephaly disease, in which babies born to women infected during pregnancy have abnormally small heads.

    Elsewhere in her remarks, the WHO chief said the relationship between Zika and birth defects has not yet been fully established but is “strongly suspected.”

    There is no sure prevention or treatment for the disease and affected countries are reportedly doing their best to eliminate the breeding grounds for Aedes aegypti mosquitoes, which bite all day long.

    Aedes Aegypti mosquitos are photographed in a laboratory of control of epidemiological vectors in San Salvador, on January 27, 2016. ©AFPCases of Zika virus have so far been reported in nearly two dozen countries.

    Brazil has been the country hardest hit by the outbreak. There is currently no specific treatment for the virus and no way to prevent it other than avoiding mosquito bites.

    US media reports say at least five people in the New York area have also been diagnosed with the virus.

    There is no sure prevention or treatment for the disease and affected countries are reportedly doing their best to eliminate the breeding grounds for mosquitoes.

    At this point, no specific travel advisory has been issued by the WHO, but national centers could issue travel advice to their own citizens, based on the evidence they have.

    Zika virus was first isolated from a monkey in Zika Forest, Uganda, in 1947.

    In Brazil, three people were reported dead due to the Zika virus in November 2015.

    Another one blamed on "monkeys."

    Is the dreaded Zika virus another giant scam?

    by Jon Rappoport January 28, 2016


    Hysteria sells and…

    It’s hysteria time again. Let me run it down for you.

    This is the word:
    The dreaded Zika virus! Watch out! It’s carried by mosquitos! It can cause birth defects—babies are born with very small heads and impaired brains!
    Here are a few scare headlines that were running on Drudge as of 1/26:
    “Brazil sends 200,000 soldiers to stop spread of Zika.”
    “Stay away from Rio if you’re pregnant.”
    “’Losing battle’ against mosquito.”
    “Virus threatening two continents.”
    Want more hysteria? The Daily Mail indicates pregnant women are being warned not to travel to 22 countries in Latin America and Africa. Several Zika cases are being reported in Italy, the UK, and Spain.

    Then we have this from the Washington Post (“As Zika virus spreads, El Salvador asks women not to get pregnant until 2018,” 1/22, with italics added):

    Quote “The rapid spread of the Zika virus has prompted Latin American governments to urge women not to get pregnant for up to two years, an extraordinary precaution aimed at avoiding birth defects believed to be linked to the mosquito-borne illness.

    …a potentially culture-shaping phenomenon in which the populations of several nations have been asked to delay procreation. The World Health Organization says at least 20 countries or territories in the region, including Barbados and Bolivia, Guadeloupe and Guatemala, Puerto Rico and Panama, have registered transmission of the virus.”
    So we now have governments warning women not to get pregnant. A new form of depopulation. Don’t get pregnant. If you do, and a mosquito bites you, you could give birth to a severely damaged child. Not only that, we have massive advisories against travel, for pregnant women. And 200,000 soldiers in Brazil, the site of the upcoming Olympics, are going door to door and distributing information about this new “plague.” Are the soldiers also telling men and women not to have sex? Who knows?

    So let’s take a little side trip to Scam City and examine the science behind the Zika virus and the assertion that it is causing birth defects.

    Before a virus can be said to cause disease, a few procedures need to occur. First, the virus must be proved to exist. It has to be isolated from a human carrier as diseased tissue, and then that tissue has to be put under an electron microscope, where many, many (Zika) viruses can be seen. Second, tests have to be run on many suspected human cases, and these tests have to reveal very large amounts of Zika in the body. That’s your basic starter kit for deciding that a virus might be causing actual human disease.

    In examining the published literature on Zika, so far I see no reports of diseased-tissue removal from a human, followed by electron microscope photos revealing large amounts of Zika.

    As far as diagnostic tests on suspected human cases are concerned, I see, as usual, two major types of testing: antibody, and PCR. I’ll briefly review the egregious flaws in these tests.

    Antibodies are immune-system scouts which identify invaders in the body. The antibodies ID these villains so other elements of the immune system can repel and destroy them. When a test shows that antibodies geared to a specific virus/villain (like Zika) are present in the body, it means the body has contacted that Zika virus—if the test was done well and didn’t come up with a falsely-positive result. False positives are frequent. But more disastrously, proving the body had contact with a specific virus says absolutely nothing about whether the patient is sick or will get sick. In fact, before 1985, a positive antibody test was generally taken to be a good sign: the body’s immune system had encountered and overcome the invader. After 1985, the “science” was turned upside down: a positive test meant the person was sick or going to get sick. And that meant, of course, more (false) diagnoses of disease and more profit from treatments. In announced “epidemics,” health agencies can falsely inflate the numbers of cases to the moon.

    The PCR is a very sophisticated and tricky test to run. It is prone to errors. It takes a tiny, tiny amount of material assumed to be a fragment of a virus, and it amplifies (blows up) that fragment so it can be observed. The first problem with the test is:

    did technicians indeed choose a tiny sample that actually is a piece of the virus in question? Or is it simply a bit of genetic debris? The second problem is: the test, despite claims to the contrary, says nothing reliable about the amount of virus (like Zika) that is in the patient’s body. Why is this important? Because you need a great deal of virus in the body to begin to say it is causing disease. A very small amount is trivial.

    With these two useless tests in tow—the antibody and the PCR—researchers and doctors don’t have a meaningful clue about whether a patient is ill as a result of Zika infection. All case-number reports are suspect, to say the very least.

    Therefore, attributing very serious problems to Zika on a worldwide basis is insupportable and speculative. It isn’t science.

    And to make the leap to claiming the virus is causing pregnant women to give birth to babies with very small heads and impaired brains is absurd.

    Who benefits from this Zika “science”? Certainly, the people who are releasing genetically engineered (GE) mosquitos as a form of disease-prevention. The big honcho is a company named Oxitec. So far, the GE mosquitos are being used to curtail dengue fever in Brazil, Malaysia, and the Cayman Islands. Florida is next up on the agenda. But with Zika coming on strong in the press as a “mosquito-carried plague,” how long will it be before special bugs are modified to save the planet from this new threat…

    Just a few problems with the GE mosquitos, though.

    A town in Brazil has reported continuing elevated levels of dengue fever since the GE (genetically engineered) mosquitoes have been introduced to combat that disease.

    The scientific hypothesis is: the trickster GE bugs (males) will impregnate natural females, but no actual next generation will occur beyond the larval stage. However, this plummeting birth rate in mosquitoes is the only “proof” that the grand experiment is safe. No long-term health studies have been done—this is a mirror of what happened when GMO crops were introduced: no science, just bland assurances.

    Needless to say, without extensive lab testing, there is no way to tell what these GE mosquitoes are actually harboring, in addition to what researchers claim. That’s a major red flag.

    Wherever these GE mosquitoes have been introduced, or are about to be introduced, the human populations have not been consulted for their permission. It’s all being done by government and corporate edict. It’s human experimentation on a grand scale.

    There are concerns that, if indeed the dengue-carrying mosquitos are actually wiped out, the vacuum may be filled by another dengue carrier, the Asian Tiger Mosquito—which breeds much faster.

    Other than that, everything is perfect. Let’s have a big parade and welcome genetically-engineered mosquitos to planet Earth.

    Back to the Zika virus: what actually is causing mothers to give birth to babies with very small heads and impaired brains? If this is indeed a fairly recent phenomenon, I would start with a deep and very specific investigation of the genetically engineered mosquitos that were recently released in Brazil to decimate the dengue-fever mosquitos.

    Then I would pay attention to a report like this (Rio Times, 5/5/15, “Brazil Shown to Be Largest Global Consumer of Pesticides”):

    Quote “The use of pesticides in Brazil grew by more than 162 percent from 2000 to 2012, according to the latest report by the Brazilian Association of Collective Health (ABRASCO), making the country the number one consumer of pesticides in the world. According to the entity, the Brazilian agriculture sector purchased more than 823,000 tons of pesticides in 2012.”

    “The ABRASCO report, titled ‘An Alert of the Impacts of Pesticides on Health’, was released last week in Rio de Janeiro. The report includes scientific studies including data from the National Cancer Institute that shows a direct link between the use of pesticides and health problems.”
    A quote inside the report:

    Quote “Not only are we using more [pesticides] but we are using more powerful, stronger pesticides. We have been forced to import pesticides which were not even allowed in Brazil to combat pests which attacked GM soybean and cotton plants…”

    “…22 of the fifty main active ingredients used in pesticides in Brazil today have been banned in most other countries. “
    How about an in-depth investigation, on the ground, probing the connection between these pesticides and birth defects?

    Or is it better, for the chosen few, to use a virus as a false cover story, in order to explain away horrendous damage from what amounts to chemical warfare?

    ****Try this study, published in Environmental Health Perspectives on July 1, 2011:

    “Urinary Biomarkers of Prenatal Atrazine Exposure…” Here is a quote referring to what is now being called a prime Zika effect:

    Quote “The presence versus absence of quantifiable levels of [the pesticide] atrazine or a specific atrazine metabolite was associated with fetal growth restriction… and small head circumference… Head circumference was also inversely associated with the presence of the herbicide metolachlor.”
    Getting the picture?

    Of course, both Atrazine and metolachlor pesticides are used in Brazil. Why is this connection to birth defects being overlooked? If this is still a serious question, in this day and age, and if the answers aren’t obvious, the questioner just arrived from Pluto.

    I have walked the path of making these connections since 1987. The covert op is played exactly like the old shell game. Look here, don’t look there. This is important, that means nothing.

    Tons and tons and tons of various pesticides and other poisonous chemicals…but forget that, it’s all because of a virus.

    “A virus” is the best false cover story ever invented.

    I think there has only been one confirmed case in Europe.

    No vaccine ... omg ... not hard to see where this will be going.

    this same mosquito... sounds like we need to kill switch that breed; the worst part is they are visually different, so when I get bit (and if I kill them) I always check for the white stripes... haha


    From what I've heard, its weaker than Dengue and this is all fear porn.

    what you are seeing is more fear porn, we just had the CDC put out a travel warning to the USVI (I run a tourism business, can I sue for lost income? haha) because we had 1 confirmed case.... not quite Ebola levels, but it's sure hard to shake that fear porn habit.

    if you're deathly afraid of discomfort, or area already immunodeficiency or immunocompromised in someway maybe worry about it.

    Zika virus could become 'explosive pandemic'

    http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-35425731


    Quote US scientists have urged the World Health Organisation to take urgent action over the Zika virus, which they say has "explosive pandemic potential".
    Writing in a US medical journal, they called on the WHO to heed lessons from the Ebola outbreak and convene an emergency committee of disease experts.
    They said a vaccine might be ready for testing in two years but it could be a decade before it is publicly available.
    Zika, linked to shrunken brains in children, has caused panic in Brazil.
    Thousands of people have been infected there and it has spread to some 20 countries.


    The Brazilian President, Dilma Roussef, has urged Latin America to unite in combating the virus.
    She told a summit in Ecuador that sharing knowledge about the disease was the only way that it would be beaten. A meeting of regional health ministers has been called for next week.
    Writing in the Journal of the American Medical Association, Daniel R Lucey and Lawrence O Gostin say the WHO's failure to act early in the recent Ebola crisis probably cost thousands of lives.
    They warn that a similar catastrophe could unfold if swift action is not taken over the Zika virus.

    Zika freakout: the hoax and the covert op continue

    by Jon Rappoport Jan29, 2016


    Thanks to reporters and researchers Jim Stone, Kathy Ford, the fullerton informer, Jim West, Martin Maloney, and Claus Jensen, who have moved this story forward and exposed the scam.

    If you want to hide anything on this planet, twist it into a (fake) story about a virus. You’re home free.

    This is my second article on the Zika-virus scam (article archive here [see post #2 above]). I’ve been to these rodeos before: HIV, West Nile, Swine Flu, SARS, Ebola. In each case, a virus is blamed for illness and death that actually arises from other causes.

    The Zika virus, now being blamed for the birth of babies with very small heads and impaired brains, has been around for a long time—late 1940s, early 1950s—and suddenly, without warning or reason, after inducing, at best, mild illness, it’s producing horrendous damage? This is called a clue. A clue that scientific liars are lying. Furthermore, many of the women who are giving birth to deformed babies test negative for the presence of the Zika Virus.

    So, what is causing babies to be born with very small heads and brain damage? While researching my first book in 1987-8, AIDS INC., I concluded: don’t assume there is only one cause for illness. That can be very misleading. Various factors can combine to produce disease and death.

    For example, in the case of this “Zika” phenomenon:

    One: Pesticide use in Brazil:
    Brazil, the center of the “Zika” crisis, uses more pesticides than any nation in the world. Some of these are banned in 22 other countries. And as for babies born with smaller heads, here is a study from Environmental Health Perspectives (July 1, 2011), “Urinary Biomarkers of Prenatal Atrazine Exposure…”:

    Quote “The presence versus absence of quantifiable levels of [the pesticide] atrazine or a specific atrazine metabolite was associated with fetal growth restriction… and small head circumference… Head circumference was also inversely associated with the presence of the herbicide metolachlor. (emphasis added)
    Atrazine and metolachlor are both used in Brazil.

    Two: The TdaP vaccine:
    This is a case of suspicious correlation. A study posted in the US National Library of Medicine, “Pertussis in young infants: a severe vaccine-preventable disease,” spells it out:

    Quote “…in late 2014, the [Brazilian] Ministry of Health announced the introduction of the Tdap vaccine for all pregnant women in Brazil.”
    Obviously, pregnant women are the target group; they are giving birth to babies with smaller heads and brain damage, and the recommendation for them to take the vaccine was recent; 2014.

    Barbara Loe Fisher, of the National Vaccine Information Center, writes:

    Quote “Drug companies did not test the safety and effectiveness of giving influenza or Tdap vaccine to pregnant women before the vaccines were licensed in the U.S and there is almost no data on inflammatory or other biological responses to these vaccines that could affect pregnancy and birth outcomes…The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) lists influenza and Tdap vaccines as either Pregnancy Category B or C biologicals which means that adequate testing has not been done in humans to demonstrate safety for pregnant women and it is not known whether the vaccines can cause fetal harm or affect reproduction capacity. The manufacturers of influenza and Tdap vaccines state that human toxicity and fertility studies are inadequate and warn that the influenza and Tdap vaccines should ‘be given to a pregnant woman only if clearly needed.’ (emphasis added)

    Three: Genetically engineered mosquitoes that have already been released in Brazil to “combat” dengue fever—a project implemented by Oxitec, a company supplied with grant money from Bill Gates:

    A town in Brazil has reported continuing elevated levels of dengue fever since the GE (genetically engineered) mosquitoes have been introduced to combat that disease.

    The scientific hypothesis is: the trickster GE bugs (males) will impregnate natural females, but no actual next generation will occur beyond the larval stage. However, this plummeting birth rate in mosquitoes is the only “proof” that the grand experiment is safe. No long-term health studies have been done—this is a mirror of what happened when GMO crops were introduced: no science, just bland assurances.

    Needless to say, without extensive lab testing, there is no way to tell what toxic elements these GE mosquitoes may actually be harboring, in addition to what researchers claim. That’s a major red flag.

    Wherever these GE mosquitoes have been introduced, or are about to be introduced, the human populations have not been consulted for their permission. It’s all being done by government and corporate edict. It’s human experimentation on a grand scale.

    Four: Pesticide manufacturing in Brazil:
    Reuters, May 19, 2015, “Brazil prosecutors seek $16 million from pesticide makers”:

    Quote “Brazilian prosecutors said on Monday they would seek at least 50 million reais ($16.6 million) from multinational pesticide manufacturers for alleged safety violations at a collection facility for used pesticide containers… Those manufacturers, prosecutors said, include the Brazilian units of BASF, DuPont, Monsanto, Nufarm, Syngenta, Adama, FMC and Nortox… The charges come as scientists, regulators, public health officials and consumers increasingly complain that Brazil’s ascent as an agricultural powerhouse has led to unsafe and excessive use of pesticides. Reuters reported in April that at least four foreign manufacturers sell pesticides in Brazil that they are not allowed to sell in their home markets. (emphasis added)
    How convenient for these corporate giants to evade blame for horrific birth effects—out of nowhere a virus is touted as the cause.

    Five: Severe and endemic malnutrition, lack of basic sanitation, and grinding poverty:
    These are major factors in all illness and death, in the areas where they are prevalent (e.g., major parts of Brazil). Suppression of the immune system is the result, and anything that then comes down the pipeline, germs or manmade toxic substances, become catastrophic to the body.

    Six: anti-mosquito sprays:
    The Guardian, January 26, 2015, “Brazil is ‘badly losing’ the battle against Zika virus, says health minister”:

    Sprays are now being given out to 400,000 pregnant women in Brazil. Naturally, the sprays are toxic. What better way to multiply the attack on mothers and their unborn children? For example, widely used organophosphates in sprays can be highly disruptive to the nervous system.

    Some or all of these six elements I’ve listed, in combination, form a sustained attack on human life.

    And as I keep stressing, the virus becomes the formidable cover story that conceals the truth.

    And don’t forget the Rio Olympic Games, coming up in August. There are multiple scenarios which could play out in front of a global television audience. Will Zika be pushed as some sort of worldwide pandemic? Will a Zika vaccine be magically “discovered” and rushed into production, in time to show (as an advertisement) lines of people dutifully trudging up to receive shots?

    Every fake epidemic is, in part, designed to create fear and induce blind compliance to medical and government dictates. The germ is positioned as the “tiny terrorist” in this stage play.

    In my first book, AIDS INC. (1988), I indicated that covert medical ops are the most dangerous, because they appear to be politically neutral, they fly under no flag, and they claim to forward only humanitarian aims. But in fact, modern “Rockefeller Medicine” is built as a vast partner in the Globalization of the planet. Its vision is a universal in-utero-to-cradle-to-grave system for the human race: every human walks a bleak lifelong path of disease-diagnosis after diagnosis, receiving toxic drugs and vaccines at every turn, which weaken his body and mind, and make him unable to consider what is happening outside his perimeter of suffering or resist political totalitarianism.

    Medical freedom means: the freedom to refuse medical care, and it’s based on knowledge of destructive effects. This freedom must win, against any odds.

    “Official science” is a contradiction in terms, and a grand illusion.

    If "they" know that it's not a "virus" but something else: where is all the $$ raised and pumped into "research" ACTUALLY going towards?

    ika seemingly exploded out of nowhere. Though it was first discovered in 1947, cases only sporadically occurred throughout Africa and southern Asia. In 2007, the first case was reported in the Pacific. In 2013, a smattering of small outbreaks and individual cases were officially documented in Africa and the western Pacific. They also began showing up in the Americas. In May 2015, Brazil reported its first case of Zika virus — and the situation changed dramatically.

    Brazil is now considered the epicenter of the Zika outbreak, which coincides with at least 4,000 reports of babies born with microcephaly just since October.

    When examining a rapidly expanding potential pandemic, it’s necessary to leave no stone unturned so possible solutions, as well as future prevention, will be as effective as possible. In that vein, there was another significant development in 2015.



    Oxitec first unveiled its large-scale, genetically-modified mosquito farm in Brazil in July 2012, with the goal of reducing “the incidence of dengue fever,” as The Disease Daily reported. Dengue fever is spread by the same Aedes mosquitoes which spread the Zika virus — and though they “cannot fly more than 400 meters,” WHO stated, “it may inadvertently be transported by humans from one place to another.” By July 2015, shortly after the GM mosquitoes were first released into the wild in Juazeiro, Brazil, Oxitec proudly announced they had “successfully controlled the Aedes aegypti mosquito that spreads dengue fever, chikungunya and zika virus, by reducing the target population by more than 90%.”

    Though that might sound like an astounding success — and, arguably, it was — there is an alarming possibility to consider.

    Nature, as one Redditor keenly pointed out, finds a way — and the effort to control dengue, zika, and other viruses, appears to have backfired dramatically.


    Juazeiro, Brazil — the location where genetically-modified mosquitoes were first released into the wild.

    ¤=[Post Update]=¤


    Map showing the concentration of suspected Zika-related cases of microcephaly in Brazil.


    The particular strain of Oxitec GM mosquitoes, OX513A, are genetically altered so the vast majority of their offspring will die before they mature — though Dr. Ricarda Steinbrecher published concerns in a report in September 2010 that a known survival rate of 3-4 percent warranted further study before the release of the GM insects. Her concerns, which were echoed by several other scientists both at the time and since, appear to have been ignored — though they should not have been.

    Those genetically-modified mosquitoes work to control wild, potentially disease-carrying populations in a very specific manner. Only the male modified Aedes mosquitoes are supposed to be released into the wild — as they will mate with their unaltered female counterparts. Once offspring are produced, the modified, scientific facet is supposed to ‘kick in’ and kill that larvae before it reaches breeding age — if tetracycline is not present during its development. But there is a problem.

    According to an unclassified document from the Trade and Agriculture Directorate Committee for Agriculture dated February 2015, Brazil is the third largest in “global antimicrobial consumption in food animal production” — meaning, Brazil is third in the world for its use of tetracycline in its food animals. As a study by the American Society of Agronomy, et. al., explained, “It is estimated that approximately 75% of antibiotics are not absorbed by animals and are excreted in waste.” One of the antibiotics (or antimicrobials) specifically named in that report for its environmental persistence is tetracycline.

    ¤=[Post Update]=¤

    In fact, as a confidential internal Oxitec document divulged in 2012, that survival rate could be as high as 15% — even with low levels of tetracycline present. “Even small amounts of tetracycline can repress” the engineered lethality. Indeed, that 15% survival rate was described by Oxitec:

    After a lot of testing and comparing experimental design, it was found that [researchers] had used a cat food to feed the [OX513A] larvae and this cat food contained chicken. It is known that tetracycline is routinely used to prevent infections in chickens, especially in the cheap, mass produced, chicken used for animal food. The chicken is heat-treated before being used, but this does not remove all the tetracycline. This meant that a small amount of tetracycline was being added from the food to the larvae and repressing the [designed] lethal system.

    Even absent this tetracycline, as Steinbrecher explained, a “sub-population” of genetically-modified Aedes mosquitoes could theoretically develop and thrive, in theory, “capable of surviving and flourishing despite any further” releases of ‘pure’ GM mosquitoes which still have that gene intact. She added, “the effectiveness of the system also depends on the [genetically-designed] late onset of the lethality. If the time of onset is altered due to environmental conditions … then a 3-4% [survival rate] represents a much bigger problem…”

    As the WHO stated in its press release, “conditions associated with this year’s El Nino weather pattern are expected to increase mosquito populations greatly in many areas.”

    Incidentally, President Obama called for a massive research effort to develop a vaccine for the Zika virus, as one does not currently exist. Brazil has now called in 200,000 soldiers to somehow help combat the virus’ spread. Aedes mosquitoes have reportedly been spotted in the U.K. But perhaps the most ironic — or not — proposition was proffered on January 19, by the MIT Technology Review:

    An outbreak in the Western Hemisphere could give countries including the United States new reasons to try wiping out mosquitoes with genetic engineering.

    Yesterday, the Brazilian city of Piracicaba said it would expand the use of genetically modified mosquitoes …

    The GM mosquitoes were created by Oxitec, a British company recently purchased by Intrexon, a synthetic biology company based in Maryland. The company said it has released bugs in parts of Brazil and the Cayman Islands to battle dengue fever.
