Mosquitoes With Synthetic DNA Scheduled For California Release

Please Share This Story!
From its inception, Oxitec has been closely aligned with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Experiments with synthetic and transgenic genes that kill the offspring of female mosquitoes does not bode well for humanity as the technology has already fallen into the hands of eugenic ideologues (e.g., Bill Gates) who are already bent on population reduction. Furthermore, arbitrarily killing off of one species affects the whole ecologic system. ⁃ TN Editor

In the mosquito breeding rooms of British biotech company Oxitec, scientists line up fresh eggs, each the size of a grain of salt. Using microscopic needles, the white-coated researchers inject each egg with a dab of a proprietary synthetic DNA.

For four days, Oxitec technicians care for the eggs, watching for those that hatch into wriggling brown larvae. Those “injection survivors,” as the company calls them, face a battery of tests to ensure their genetic modification is successful.

Soon, millions of these engineered mosquitoes could be set loose in California in an experiment recently approved by the federal government.

Oxitec, a private company, says its genetically modified bugs could help save half the world’s population from the invasive Aedes aegypti mosquito, which can spread diseases such as yellow fever, chikungunya and dengue to humans. Female offspring produced by these modified insects will die, according to Oxitec’s plan, causing the population to collapse.

“Precise. Environmentally sustainable. Non-toxic,” the company says on its website of its product trademarked as the “Friendly” mosquito.

Scientists independent from the company and critical of the proposal say not so fast. They say unleashing the experimental creatures into nature has risks that haven’t yet been fully studied, including possible harm to other species or unexpectedly making the local mosquito population harder to control.

Even scientists who see the potential of genetic engineering are uneasy about releasing the transgenic insects into neighborhoods because of how hard such trials are to control.

“There needs to be more transparency about why these experiments are being done,” said Natalie Kofler, a bioethicist at Harvard Medical Schoolwho has followed the company’s work. “How are we weighing the risks and benefits?”

She pointed out that the possible benefits of the technology in California are lower than they would be in more tropical regions of the world where mosquito-borne disease outbreaks often threaten humans. California has never had a casein which an Aedes aegypti was found to transmit disease.

Nathan Rose, Oxitec’s head of regulatory affairs, said the company chose California because the Aedes aegypti mosquitoes have spread rapidly after being discovered in the state about a decade ago. The tiny, aggressive day-biters can lay eggs in a space as small as a water-filled bottle cap left in the backyard.

Rose noted that the company found its mosquito reduced the population in a Brazilian neighborhood by 95% in just 13 weeks.

So far, Oxitec has released little of its data from that experiment or from a more recent release in the Florida Keys. It hasn’t yet published any of those results in a peer-reviewed scientific journal — publications that scientists expect when evaluating a new drug or technology.

On March 7, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced that it had granted Oxitec a permit to release its transgenic insects on 29,400 acres in the counties of San Bernardino, Fresno, Stanislaus and Tulare.

The company plans to start the release in northern Tulare County in the Central Valley, where it has partnered with the local mosquito control district based in the city of Visalia.

The experiment must still be approved by the state Department of Pesticide Regulation.

I wonder why release them in California? When was the last time CA had an outbreak of yellow fever, chikungunya and dengue? I also wonder if they can modify the DNA of these creatures that they might be able to modify human host DNA to “vaccinate” our population allegedly against COVID-19, which seems to be more of a political power mind control at present?

“Experiments with synthetic and transgenic genes that kill the offspring of female mosquitoes does not bode well for humanity”, especially since the same experiment is already being done on the entire human population; that’s no doubt one of the design goals of the COVID “vaccine” programs. As for the mosquitoes themselves, it’s too late to stop this. Oxitec already released their little monstrosities in Brazil, and contrary to the gene wizards’ plan, they survived and hybridized local mosquito populations. Just like Africanized bees, these new and possibly more troublesome insects will migrate North, and be here in a few years,… Read more »

“Female offspring produced by these modified insects will die, according to Oxitec’s plan, causing the population to collapse.” You said it! Yes, Brazil. I remember that failed and ridiculous experiment gone wrong. The researchers were all, “Well, duh! We didn’t expect THAT result. Ooops! Erase that brain dead, stupid experiment and don’t mention it again.” These so-called scientists are completely irresponsible individuals focused on profit and in bed with funders (their masters) who are not to be trusted, ever, never, ever. What did the idiots think was going to happen in Brazil? REAL scientists told them what would happen and… Read more »

do these people never watch old movies, this isn’t going to turn out well

Those movies date from a time when ‘these people’ could only dream of what they are actually accomplishing today.

Would that make it anything like the Covid-19 ‘vaccines’?
