(NaturalNews) The latest revelation regarding the Zika virus involves a genetically-altered mosquito project funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation – an experiment which some suspect may have caused the rapid spread of a once-rare disease that is now expected to circulate around the globe.
Zika virus has been linked to a birth defect called microcephaly, which causes babies to be born with brain damage and unusually small heads.
Brazil has been labeled the “epicenter” of the Zika virus outbreak, with more than a million cases reported there.
Perhaps not coincidentally, Brazil is also the site where the GM mosquito project was carried out – and it involved the same strain of mosquito said to be responsible for the spread of the virus.
From The Event Chronicle:
“The Zika virus, which has been detected in 18 of the 26 states in Brazil, is transmitted by the Aedes aegypti mosquito. A generically modified version has been developed by a British biotech company called Oxitec.
“The results of a trial in Brazil published this summer involved genetically engineered mosquitoes that allegedly fight the spread of dengue fever, yellow fever, chikungunya, and zika virus.
“But scientists have warned the study had too few controls in place to ensure that the mosquitoes released into the wild did not end up spreading dengue fever, yellow fever, chikungunya, and zika virus.
“In short, these genetically modified mosquitoes could be the cause of the Zika virus outbreak in Brazil and other parts of South and Central America.”
There may be no conclusive evidence yet that the GM mosquito project funded by Gates has actually caused the spread of Zika, but it’s a possibility well worth investigating.
Was it an accident?
At the very least, the project relied on sloppy science. In theory, only male mosquitoes were modified so that they would produce larvae that died before birth – but there would always be some that survived.
One of the sources of the Zika/GMO connection story was a recent Reddit post that has since gone viral.
An excerpt from the Reddit post:
“The OX513A strain of male mosquitoes released in Juazeiro creates larvae that normally die in the absence of antibiotics, which is supposed to help decimate wild mosquito populations when these males are released in the wild. Problem here being of course, that “life, uh, finds a way”. An estimated 3-4% of the larvae survive to adulthood in the absence of the tetracycline antibiotic. These larvae should then be free to go on and reproduce and pass on their genes. In fact, they may be the only ones that are passing on their genes in places that have their wild mosquito population decimated by these experiments.”
There is further evidence that up to 15 percent of the GM mosquito offspring may be able to survive, due to the tetracycline antibiotic being present in the environment from other sources. And it seems that Oxitec, the company that developed the GM mosquito program was well aware of that fact.
As reported by Zero Hedge:
“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.”
The saga continues
It’s easy to see where the Zika virus crisis might fit in with Bill Gates’ admitted depopulation agenda. Not only are babies being born nearly brain-dead, but now women throughout Latin America are being urged not to have children during the next two years. Coincidence?
And in the latest Zika news, GM mosquitoes are now being considered for use in fighting the further spread of the virus.
And of course, researchers are scrambling to develop a vaccine. …
