Bill Gates Funds Approval of GM Mosquitoes to Combat Dengue

There has been much debate about the pending FDA approval of genetically modified salmon that grows to maturity twice as fast as a natural salmon.  Its many detractors have labeled it "Frankenfish" and say it will spoil the natural marine environment, as well as being potentially harmful for human consumption. While that debate continues, it looks like another genetically modified live organism may be approved for release into the ecosystem: GM mosquitoes.

The UN's Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs announced plans to combat Dengue fever and other mosquito-borne illnesses with genetically modified mosquitoes designed to make them sterile or simply kill them off, as reported on the U.N news service IRIN:

Scientists fighting mosquito-borne diseases are racing to obtain approval to release genetically modified insects designed to stop the spread of dengue, a potentially fatal virus.
However, such moves have made environmentalists nervous as a science long used in agriculture is applied to public health.
These mosquitoes are engineered with an extra gene or inserted bacterium or have had a gene altered so that either their offspring are sterile and unable to spread dengue, or simply die.
"People generally do not like the unknown and are alarmist. Because there has never been a [field] release of GM [genetically modified] mosquitoes, critics are free to imagine what can possibly go wrong," said UK-based entomologist and professor at Imperial College London, John Mumford.
He is also the principal investigator for the World Health Organization (WHO)-funded regulatory group, Mosqguide, founded to develop best practices for deploying genetically modified mosquitoes to fight mosquito-borne diseases, primarily dengue and malaria. 
For half a century, scientists have released billions of engineered insects - for example, fruit flies - to save plants, but to date there has not been a field release of insects engineered to save humans. 
The Malaysia-headquartered NGO Pesticide Action Network-Asia and the Pacific opposed a since-granted request to release modified mosquitoes on the grounds that "it may have environmental or health consequences as well as carry risks arising from horizontal gene transfer", wrote executive director, Sarojeni V. Rengam, who stressed the "possibility of new health risks to humans and animals....the insect may become more virulent, aggressive, or its bite might have different effects on the host." 
The most shocking section of this release is that for the last 50 years scientists have released billions of engineered insects into the ecosystem.  There has been very little public debate about whether we should be meddling with nature by introducing billions of new organisms.  It's understandable in regards to mosquitoes, as most people find them to be a nuisance if not a health menace; therefore, despite a lack of knowledge, most people will read this and say "good, get rid of them."

It seems that if scientists have been able to successfully modify insects genetically for the past half-decade, then at least some of those species were originally designed to be a disease-carrying weapon.  In fact, many have reported that recent dengue outbreaks can be directly traced to U.S. Army experiments coordinated by the CIA.  In most cases of government funding for scientific research, there is usually a military origin.  The technology is even being used as another manufactured terrorist threat.

The U.N. proudly reports:
Australian researchers from the University of Queensland, funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, have received regulatory approval to begin in December to release mosquitoes infected with a bacterium that prevents the dengue virus from multiplying, as has the Malaysian Ministry of Health.
Given the absolute certainty that global organizations such as the World Health Organization are utterly corrupt with their phony pandemics indicating elite alliances and lack of true concern for human health, it is time that we all become skeptics regarding their efforts.  And when proven eugenicists like Bill Gates are involved in the funding of such technology, it should be clear by now to oppose such meddling with nature in order to help "save" humans.

I wonder if this article is the reason for this site being labeled "unsafe".

Anonymous, Please have another beer and turn on your TV to any sport. Do this anytime you start to "wonder". All is well, beer is good, makes all gooder. Thank you.

Australia was talking about doing this with rabbits in 1991. The reason it doesn't work is simple: nature selects for survival, not mortality.

If Gates III wanted to do away with malaria etc., he could innoculate mosquitos to make them immune.

Personally I think when he talks about giving Indian children NINE polio vaccinations apiece, and it turns out the vaccines are tainted, then he IS part and parcel of eugenics and genocide, he's a major funder of killing children, however he candycoats it to himself as "population control" or whatever. Is there a connection with the fact there is no Bill Gates IV, and is there a connection between Internet Explorer claiming this site is malicious, and the bugginess of Windows in general? And speaking of bugs, isn't it odd that Gates is fighting or pretending to fight viruses and bacteria around the world, while Windows remains the number one platform hosting computer viruses?

Well, today Internet Explorer has deemed this website unsafe

If Bill Gates can't stand a little criticism like this he must be a nasty little geek. How could he believe in eugenics? Any decent Aryan-lover would send Bill Gates with his narrow little shoulders and pencil neck straight to gene pool cleaner.

Bill Gates holds no relevance, he does what he is told to do, nothing more.

There isn't much love lost between people and mosquitoes. At the very least, these bloodthirsty insects are major annoyances, biting us with a persistence that can be maddening. If insects can be credited with evil intent, mosquitoes seem determined to wipe the human race out. As carriers of deadly diseases, mosquitoes are the deadliest insect on Earth. Each year, millions of people die from malaria, dengue fever, and yellow fever after being bitten by a disease-carrying mosquito. Mosquitoes also carry diseases that pose serious threats to livestock and pets.

With all these strikes against them, it's hard to imagine that mosquitoes fulfill any useful purpose. We forget that mosquitoes populated this planet long before man; the oldest mosquito fossils date back some 200 million years, to the Cretaceous period. Clearly, mosquitoes fill an important ecological niche. So what good are mosquitoes?

Mosquito larvae are aquatic insects, and as such, play an important role in the aquatic food chain. According to Dr. Gilbert Waldbauer in The Handy Bug Answer Book, "mosquito larvae are filter feeders that strain tiny organic particles such as unicellular algae from the water and convert them to the tissues of their own bodies, which are, in turn, eaten by fish." Mosquito larvae are, in essence, nutrient-packed snacks for fish and other aquatic animals.

Their role on the bottom of the food chain doesn't end at the larval stage, of course. As adults, mosquitoes serve as equally nutritious meals for birds, bats, and spiders.

As much as we loathe them, mosquitoes represent a considerable biomass of food for wildlife on the lower rungs of the food chain. Their extinction, were it even achievable, would have an enormous adverse affect on the entire ecosystem.

How interesting Bill Gates want to rid the planet of blood sucker Mosquitos. Maybe he should also rue his attention to his own globalist NWO blood sucker mates.

Whoever can't see that The philonthropic Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is a pitiful, pathetic piece of the Powers That Were needs their software upgraded. How pitiful to have that much money only to waste it in such an assanine way. Please boycot his crap.
