Zika: What Went Wrong with the Mosquitoes?

mosquito_gene-minBy Catherine J. Frompovich

How many readers know that there was an English (UK)-American (USA) biology technology project regarding the release of bioengineered mosquitoes to “fight” dengue fever in tropical countries? And, that the gene manipulation project called “Release of Insects carrying a Dominant Lethal” (RIDL) apparently is now backfiring? Could it involve the Zika virus?

The ‘actors’ include: 1) genetically-modified mosquitoes; 2) Oxitec, a spinoff of Oxford University; 3) an apparent new virulent strain of Zika virus; and 4) microcephalatic babies.

The most unfortunate aspect of technology gone off the rails—mosquito bioengineering—apparently resulted in the “Death Gene” blockage, using the GATA binding protein, has affected the same gene in human embryos as is targeted in mosquito pupae! [1] If that truly is the scientific snafu—deliberate or accidental—then some heads at various levels need to roll, figuratively speaking. Who will be made accountable for such a horrendous technological horror impacting innocent babies, the future of humankind?

According to an exquisitely researched paper written by Yoichi Shimatsu [1], here’s what apparently went wrong:

The OX513-A captive mosquito program releases protein-carrier male mosquitoes to mate with the wild local female mosquitoes. The lethal protein enters the eggs to disrupt embyonic [sic: s/b embryonic] growth, causing the offspring to self-destruct (auto-side) before they reach adulthood. However, these same mother mosquitoes can then transfer the dangerous protein into women, thereby seriously harming human embryonic development of the brain, nerves, heart and testicles. Damage to the GATA-1 protein in human embryos is associated with Down Syndrome, a brain disorder similar to Brazilian microcephaly. (While there are many other causes of microcephaly, the new Brazil type is extraordinarily severe.)

Shimatsu’s article is so well researched and written, that I wish to defer and refer my readers to it here and not ‘steal’ any of his journalistic thunder.

But, before I end this blog and to entice you into reading Shimatsu’s entire article, here’s something that ought to get your attention:

The first major outbreak of Zika virus occurred in April and May 2007 on Yap island, a part of the Federated States of Micronesia in the South Pacific. Of the island’s 7,400 residents, antibodies against Zika were found in 74 percent of the population. No deaths were attributed to ZIKA, and none of the patients were hospitalized. Long-term nerve damage known as Guillaine-Barre Syndrome was reported. In the following year, local health workers reported an increase in cases of microcephaly in newborns, a claim disputed in other reports.

The Yap outbreak was an extraordinary phenomenon for several reasons. Over the past 60 years since its discovery by the Rockefeller Institute in a monkey in the Zika Valley of Uganda, only 14 cases in humans had been reported. The distance from the coast of East Africa to Yap is 11,000 kilometers, and not a single resident of Yap had ever visited Africa. A few Filipinos, presumably medical workers, had contact with Zika virus, but none were reported in Yap.

Yap is an isolated island community making it an ideal “laboratory” for an illegal human experiment and clinical study. The nearest major island is Guam, the former headquarters of the U.S. Naval Research Lab 2, which had since been relocated to Indonesia (where it supplied lab assistants to the notorious “super-flu” researcher Yoshihiro Kawaoka at University of Wisconsin). The local health care system is primarily funded with U.S. foreign aid. [CJF emphasis added]

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation donated more than 300,000 US dollars toward the Oxitec mosquito-release trial in the Cayman Islands and in Brazil.

Please read Shimatsu’s entire article and share it with your friends. Something’s not ‘kosher’ regarding Zika and microcephaly, I offer. Start asking pointed questions of everyone in the healthcare system, federal and state government agencies.

We have to let them know that we know they are messing around and we won’t fall for the fake pandemics they apparently are engineering, or should I say bioengineering.
