Are you aware that genetically modified mosquitoes are being set for release worldwide? Right after GM mosquitoes were let loose in Brazil, dengue fever cases spiked. Read more about this at GlobalResearch.ca. Let's confirm that:
Dengue has killed 132 people in Brazil in just the first 12 weeks of the year, a nearly 30% jump from the same period in 2014. Three-quarters of those deaths have been in São Paulo state, which has registered more than half of the 460,502 cases reported in Brazil in the first quarter. The state had more cases in the first 12 weeks of this year than it did in all of 2014 (April 17, 2015 - WallStreetJournal).
Oxitec tells us that independent collaborators around the world have conducted extensive testing on Oxitec’s OX513A mosquitos since the strain was first developed in 2002. Some of those sites where outdoor trials have been conducted are: Mosquito Research and Control Unit Cayman, the Gorgas Memorial Institute in Panama, the Institute for Medical Research in Malaysia, Moscamed and the University of São Paulo in Brazil. Do you believe in coincidences?
On July 23, 2014, we are told that, "Next week biotech company Oxitec of Abingdon, UK, will open a factory in Campinas, Brazil, to raise millions of modified mosquitoes...In April, Brazil's National Technical Commission for Biosecurity (CTNBio) approved their commercial use (July 23, 2014 - New Scientist). New Scientist further reports that:
The Brazilian state of Bahia is one of the affected areas. A state of alert, declared in February, is in force in 10 rural districts. Oxitec plans to release millions of modified mosquitoes in the Bahia town of Jacobina, as part of an expanded research programme. A larger release could follow if the Brazilian Health Surveillance Agency also lends its approval, as expected.Isn't it odd that Oxitec has previously released GM-mosquitoes in that same area the year prior. Oxitec, from Oxford, UK reports on June 20th, 2013:
Today Moscamed made the first releases of Oxitec GM mosquitoes to mark the launch of a new programme to control the dengue mosquito Aedes aegypti in the town of Jacobina in the State of Bahia.
Do you still believe in odd coincidences? Nevertheless, perhaps the scientific studies regarding the risk assessments may convince you otherwise. There appears to be a lack of risk assessment and proof of efficacy for GM insects:
This is an additional concern to the lack of risk assessment carried out on the GM insects made by the British firm Oxitec. Many risks regarding these mosquitoes have been raised and warrant a complete halt to any further release until comprehensive data on their biosafety are published. Even for controlling the Yellow Fever mosquito, the strategy has many flaws that make it potentially inefficient, ineffective and hazardous (see Transgenic GM Mosquitoes Not a Solution, SiS 54). (Institute of Science in Society).In a nutshell, Brazilians were promised that the GM mosquitoes would end dengue fever, but results from field trials conducted in Bahia, Brazil were never published and did not evaluate the relation between Aedes aegypti mosquito populations and the occurrence of dengue. According to a Cambridge University study:
. . . the targeted mosquitoes may simply move to another area and/or a different species of mosquito (Aedes albopictus) which also transmits dengue can move into the area. Complex immune responses to the four types of dengue virus mean that a partial reduction in mosquito numbers can reduce cross-immunity to the different serotypes and increase the number of cases of the severe form of the disease, Dengue Haemorrhagic Fever, which is more likely to be fatal.Without adequate scientific inquiry, the Brazilian regulator Comissão Técnica Nacional de Biossegurança (CTNBio) recently gave the green light to the commercialization of the technology proposed by Moscamed Brazil in partnership with the English company Oxitec and the Universidade de São Paulo. This is the same company that proposed releasing GM mosquitoes in Panama, for supposed similar reasons (NaturalSociety.com).
Perhaps, some wisdom from a 1400 year old scripture can reveal to mankind the foretold dangers of genetically-modified organisms:
[Shaitan said]: "Most certainly I will lead them astray and excite in them vain desires, and bid them so that they shall slit the ears of the cattle, and most certainly I will bid them so that they shall alter Allah's creation." And whoever takes the Shaitan for a guardian rather than Allah, he indeed shall suffer a manifest loss (Quran, 4:119).
Are we yet to experience the manifest loss and consequence of altering creation and perverting Mother Nature?
