Yes, huge unprecedented release of GMO mosquitoes in the Caymans.

All of this sort of experimentation must be stopped pronto.  If Pandora's box has not yet been opened, we are very,very close.

Haiti death toll rises to 1,344

By Ivan Watson, CNN
November 22, 2010 -- Updated 1740 GMT (0140 HKT)


STORY HIGHLIGHTS
NEW: Doctors, nurses and trucks to carry the dead are all in short supply
Nearly 57,000 people have been treated
The outbreak is expected to surpass the original prediction of 200,000 cases


Port-Au-Prince, Haiti -- The death toll has risen to at least 1,344 in the cholera outbreak in Haiti that has sickened nearly 57,000 people, the Haitian government said Monday.

The announcement came as international health officials predicted that the scale of Haiti's cholera epidemic will exceed initial estimates of 200,000 over coming months.

"Having seen how the bacteria is behaving in this environment with these people, having seen just how poor and how hungry the people are, we know we have to revise our numbers up," said Nyka Alexander, a spokeswoman for the World Health Organization, in a phone call with CNN.

Campaigns have focused on raising excitement, putting posters across the quake-devastated capital. Some have suggested that the vote be delayed. More Photos »
It may not be the best time to choose a president.

“The nation is not in the mood for the election,” said one candidate, Leslie Voltaire, a former government minister, who, along with other candidates, has suggested that the vote be delayed.

I stand corrected on this:

Nepalese peace keepers were sent to Haiti in October!  Cholera pandemic in Nepal this summer.  UN knew some of these men were carriers.

Nepalese soldiers probably were the vector for Cholera as the Haitian people suspected. My apologies to you, mes freres.  Sincerely.

Chitra probably knew about this as well.

GMO mosquitoes are planned to be released in the U.S. as well as other Latin American states. Of course, they could migrate from the Caribean Sea anyway.

Haiti cholera spreading faster than predicted: U.N.

Patrick Worsnip Patrick Worsnip – Tue Nov 23, 4:59 pm ET

UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) – Haiti's deadly cholera epidemic is spreading faster than originally estimated and is likely to result in hundreds of thousands of cases and last up to a year, a senior U.N. official said on Tuesday.

Since the disease first appeared in mid-October it has killed 1,344 people as of Friday in the poverty-stricken and earthquake-ravaged Caribbean nation.

But U.N. humanitarian coordinator in Haiti Nigel Fisher said the real death toll might be "closer to two thousand than one" because of lack of data from remote areas, and the number of cases 60,000-70,000 instead of the official figure of around 50,000.

Addressing a U.N. news conference by video link from Haiti, Fisher said experts from the World Health Organization were now revising their estimate that the diarrheal disease, spread by poor sanitation, would cause 200,000 cases within six months.

DHS panel on chemical-plant attacks is stacked with industry lobbyists who are planning False Flags
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/11/24/AR2010112406126.html
By Dan Eggen  Washington Post Staff Writer  Wednesday, November 24, 2010; 6:07 PM


When the Department of Homeland Security wants advice on how to guard against terrorist attacks at chemical plants, it relies heavily on a special agency panel focused on the topic.  There's just one problem, critics say: The committee is stacked with more than a dozen chemical corporation lobbyists and other industry representatives, who have worked to water down agency standards and oppose tougher security requirements.  The Chemical Sector Committee, which also includes government officials, does most of its business in secret and is not covered by White House ethics rules aimed at curbing the influence of lobbyists in government.  "These are the same people that are lobbying on the Hill to kill stronger regulations," said Rick Hind, legislative director for the Greenpeace Toxics Campaign, which has asked DHS to broaden the committee's membership. "It's a very monopolistic lobbying opportunity."  The arrangement underscores the ongoing efforts of the chemical industry to limit oversight by DHS,which has struggled to enact security regulations for petroleum plants, chlorine factories and other facilities at risk for terrorist attacks.  The debate comes amid growing concerns over the ability of al-Qaeda and other terrorist groups to exploit gaps in the nation's security apparatus. Earlier this month, DHS tightened security for cargo shipments from abroad after the discovery of a Yemen-based plot to send bombs in shipped packages; the air-cargo industry had resisted such steps for years.  With chemical plants, critics complain that DHS has bowed to industry pressure on numerous fronts, ranging from which facilities can be inspected to what they can be required to do. DHS officials defend their record and say cooperation with industry groups is vital in order to make security plans work.  DHS spokesman Chris Ortman said the agency's assessment program "has already been effective in bringing about security improvements." About 7,000 chemical sites have been identified as high-risk, and more than 2,000 have taken steps to reduce risk factors, he said.  Rand Beers, undersecretary for the National Protection and Programs Directorate, wrote in a Nov. 2 letter to Greenpeace that the goal of such panels is to "help facilitate unfettered communication and coordination," and that the agency would work to include environmental groups and others in deliberations.  The issue of chemical-plant safety is under debate in Congress, where lawmakers are weighing whether to renew funding for the DHS reporting-and-inspection program. The House has voted to give regulators the power to require safer practices at chemical plants, but the idea has foundered amid industry opposition in the Senate.  Chemical industry groups argue that additional oversight is unnecessary and will cost jobs at a time of economic distress. The sector has spent nearly $40 million on lobbying since 2009, according to disclosure records.  "We are longtime advocates for chemical security regulations, but of course there is disagreement and debate about how that gets done," said Scott Jensen, spokesman for the American Chemistry Council, the industry's main lobbying group. "There's a lot at stake for our industry and our members."

Cholera is very contagious. It is spread by the unintentional consumption of infected feces that contaminate food and water. It can also be spread through human to human contact. Some people have been infected with cholera by eating raw or undercooked shellfish.

Election in Haiti Beset by Cholera, Confusion
By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Published: November 28, 2010

  Filed at 5:37 a.m. EST

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) — The ballot is as crowded as the earthquake-ravaged capital itself, and a collapsed presidential palace is the prize. The voter rolls are filled with the dead, and living citizens are still struggling to figure out if and where they can vote while worrying about political violence and a spreading cholera epidemic.

It's Election Sunday in post-quake Haiti.

Ninety-six contenders are competing for 11 Senate seats and more than 800 more are seeking to fill the 99-seat lower house. There are local and municipal races as well.

Major candidates call for halt to Haiti election           

By JONATHAN M. KATZ and BEN FOX, Associated Press Jonathan M. Katz And Ben Fox, Associated Press – 35 mins ago


PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti – Nearly all the major candidates in Haiti's presidential election called for Sunday's election to be voided amid allegations of fraud and reports that large numbers of voters were turned away from polling stations throughout the quake-stricken country.

Twelve of the 19 candidates endorsed a joint statement denouncing the voting as fraudulent and calling on their supporters to show their anger with demonstrations against the government and the country's Provisional Electoral Council.

The statement included all of the major contenders but one: Jude Celestin, who is backed by the Unity party of President Rene Preval _

Excellent question highlighting one of the many conflicting notions behind the necessity of the gropings.  I suppose the next argument will be that the x-ray scanners that so many people submit to will reduce the transmission of cholera - so would the hands off metal detectors!

I recommend everyone to help get the word out to all the student microbiologists, scientists, researchers out there about all the dead scientists:

http://www.stevequayle.com/dead_scientists/UpdatedDeadScientists.html

I put one up in the MIT facebook but they took it DOWN!

This is interesting,  I know that their work is hazardous due to possible exposure, but this suggests possible nefarious ends.  It maybe slightly beyond random.  Could it be that each one of them discovered something and were careless about disclosure?

I would say that as scientists they would be enthralled and intensely engaged in their research at the casualty of social awareness, they may have professional/career intelligence but a lack of practical intelligence due to their limited social awareness beyond their fields of interest and academy. They are many scientists/academics/researchers (natural and otherwise) whose "social" causes and awareness does not go beyond their careers, if it is not going to help them then it is irrelevant and beyond their comfort zone, so they remain ignorant; so, scientists can be sheeple.

Part of that sentence should read:

I suppose the next argument to endorse submission to the x-raw scanners will be that they are better since  they will reduce the transmission of cholera because of the minimization of pat downs  - so would the hands off metal detectors!

Election chaos has Haiti again on edge of turmoil

By JONATHAN M. KATZ and BEN FOX, Associated Press Jonathan M. Katz And Ben Fox, Associated Press –

1 hr 57 mins ago
PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti – Haitians entered election day hoping for the best. Within hours, ballot boxes were ripped to pieces, protesters were on the streets and nearly every presidential hopeful was united against the government.

Add it to Haiti's list: Already reeling from a catastrophic earthquake, one of the world's poorest economies, storms, a deadly cholera epidemic and unrest over U.N. peacekeepers, the Caribbean nation could now be on the edge of political turmoil.

The chaos is Sunday's voting ended up uniting most of the top presidential candidates against the president's heir apparent — Jude Celestin, head of the state-run construction company and beneficiary of a well-financed campaign.

Could it be that the requested work was completed(compartmentalized of course), thus making the scientist on the project a potential leak source liability? These people tend to look at other people as nothing more than tools, be it as an asset or liability. Consider all the universitys around the world that are cranking out young low pay demand eager talent to do the elite's bidding. By the time most of them get a clue how it is that a nobody student from a noname town suddenly gets an offer to go to school at MIT, it's off to the delusions of grandier the student goes, with visions of peer respect and wads of cash from book sales as an "expert" in their field. But I suspect they most look for the students that have already figured it out and don't have a problem with the globalist plan. They know they are just a tool of the bigger project and resolve to get their own piece of the action "while the gettin's good". I consider these types as being pretty much psychotic and completely unstable mentally and morally.

Mentally Unstable?  Then how would they be able to complete the work?  I agree with the moral assessment.  There is intense pressure within academia to overachieve, family and morals are not relevant while  prestige (professional recognition) and income are significant.

So getting their own piece of the action is an ultimate goal.

Haitian cholera strain could dominate the Americas

    * 16:12 10 December 2010 by Debora MacKenzie
    * For similar stories, visit the Epidemics and Pandemics Topic Guide

The DNA of the cholera bacteria ravaging Haiti has been sequenced, and the news is not good. It is carrying a mutation that seems to cause more intense disease. This has already helped the strain to dominate in south Asia, and the Haitian epidemic could spread it still further.

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported on 8 December that in its first six weeks, the Haitian cholera has been 11.5 times as likely to kill its victims as the cholera that reached Peru in 1991, even though Peruvians, like Haitians, had no prior immunity to the bacteria.

The death rate could partly be because medical care, nutrition and HIV levels are worse in earthquake- and poverty-stricken Haiti than Peru, says Matt Waldor of Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston. But it could also be due to a nastier cholera toxin.

Single source

Waldor and colleagues have now sequenced the full DNA of the Haitian cholera and compared it with cholera from Peru, Bangladesh, the Gulf of Mexico and elsewhere. The analysis, done in record time using a new sequencing technique, confirmed a simpler analysis by the CDC last month, showing the Haitian bacteria were from a single source and similar to recent south Asian strains.

The greater genetic detail showed that the Haitian bacteria are "nearly identical" to the predominant south Asian strain, but a different lineage to cholera in South America, or strains occurring naturally in the Gulf of Mexico. "The bottom line is, this cholera was introduced by human activity from thousands of miles away," says Waldor.

Haitian cholera strain called deadlier


Published: Dec. 10, 2010 at 7:45 PM

BOSTON, Dec. 10 (UPI) -- The cholera strain devastating Haiti carries a mutation that makes it more intense and could allow it to spread further, U.S. researchers say.

Researchers at two Boston hospitals have sequenced the DNA of the cholera bacteria and compared it with strains from Peru, Bangladesh, the Gulf of Mexico region and other areas, NewScientist.com reported Friday.

The analysis showed the Haitian bacteria were from a single source and similar to a recent predominant South Asian strain, but a different lineage to cholera in South America or strains occurring naturally in the Gulf of Mexico.

Something tells me that Rockefeller agents will be attending that Obesity Truth semilar at USF in April to make sure the main speakers either:

* make no mention of aspartame and MSG
* dismiss "aspartame and MSG cause obesity, cancer, and diabetes" as "conspiracy theory"

And if one of the main speakers mentions how aspartame and MSG cause obesity, cancer, and diabetes and use documented evidence to back up their claims, they could end up "suicided" like the dead microbiologist. They have to make sure the sheeple continue to believe that fat and sugar alone cause obesity and use that as a pretext to implement their pharmaceutical/scientific dictatorship.

Viruses and the GM Insect “Flying Vaccine” Solution          

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
Decmber 13, 2010

While it is generally clear, even to the relatively uninformed, that government and corporations have become one and the same, the extent to which this is the case is still largely unknown amongst the general public. Likewise, the extent to which this merger is affecting public health is also not widely known. In recent years (aside from their other horrific projects) government agencies, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), think tanks, and corporations have all banded together to combine two of the biggest scourges on the environment and human health — genetic modification and vaccines — into one entity.

 
 
 
 We are being conditioned to accept and expect these organisms to be released on the public on some future date.
 
While “scientists” have been genetically modifying insects for years, only in the last few have they begun to openly discuss releasing them into the environment. As always, the fact that public discussion has just now begun to take place on the issue means that the project has already been initiated. This much has been borne out by the facts in that the release of the insects has already been announced.

Under the guise of eradicating Dengue fever, GM mosquitoes were released into the environment in the Cayman Islands in 2009. Dengue fever is a mosquito-borne, virus-based disease that has largely been non-existent in North America for several decades. Dengue fever can morph into a much more dangerous form of the illness known as Dengue Hemorrhagic fever. Symptoms of Dengue fever are high fever, headache, pain behind the eyes, easy bruising, joint, muscle, bone pain, rash, and bleeding from the gums. There is no known cure or treatment for Dengue fever besides adequate rest and drinking plenty of water.

Generally speaking, it is one specific type of mosquito, Aedes Aegypti, which transmits the virus.

The publicly given method for using these GM mosquitoes in the eradication of Dengue fever was that the genetically modified mosquitoes were “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.” More specifically, the male GM mosquitoes are supposed to mate with natural females which produce larvae that die unless tetracycline, an antibiotic, is present. Without the antibiotic, an enzyme accumulates to a level that is toxic enough to kill the larvae.

It is important to note that these GM mosquitoes, known as OX513A, necessarily have to be of the Aedis Aegypti type in order to achieve the goals publicly stated by the developers. Therefore, the millions of male mosquitoes that were released into the open-air environment in 2009, and again in 2010, were all of the dengue fever carrying type.

The OX513A mosquitoes were developed by a British biotechnology company named Oxitec and their subsequent release was overseen by the Mosquito Research and Control Unit (MRCU) in the Cayman Islands, a British overseas territory.

Although Oxitec Limited was the developer who engaged in most of the groundwork for the GM insects, the project was not theirs alone. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the World Health Organization, The PEW Charitable Trusts, and government agencies in the United States, England, Malaysia, and others were all involved in the development and promotion of the GM mosquitoes.

What has been quite suspicious, however, is the fact that Dengue fever, which has been nonexistent in North America for decades, has recently surfaced in Florida. Initially, the fever was found in 2009, but by 2010 the cases had vastly increased. In July 2010, a CDC study was released to very little media attention indicating that about 10 percent of the population of Key West had been infected with Dengue fever. This had doubled from 2009 where 5 percent had been infected. One might wonder what caused a virus that had been almost entirely eradicated to suddenly reappear with such vigor. That is, one might wonder if the answer weren’t so blatantly obvious. Of course, official reports do not address whether or not the Dengue fever is connected to the millions of mosquitoes capable of carrying the fever which were released just miles away in the Cayman Islands.

While Dengue fever had been eradicated in terms of naturally occurring outbreaks in the United States, cases that were research-related and laboratory-generated have occurred in the country for many years. This is because Dengue fever has been of particular interest to the United States government, US Army, and CIA since at least the middle part of the 20th century. There is a great deal of evidence suggesting that the biochemical research facilities at Fort Detrick were conducting tests on Dengue fever as a bio-weapon as far back as 1942. It is generally known that in the 1950s the CIA partnered with Ft. Detrick to study Dengue fever and other exotic diseases for use as biological weapons.

It is also interesting to note that, according to CIA documents as well as a 1975 congressional committee, the three locations of Key West, Panama City, and Avon Park (and two other locations in central Florida) were testing sites for Dengue fever research.

As is generally the case, the experiments in Avon Park were concentrated in low-income neighborhoods, in areas that were predominantly black with newly constructed housing projects. According to H.P. Albarelli Jr. and Zoe Martell of Truthout, CIA documents related to the MK/NAOMI program revealed that the agency was using the Aegis Aegypti type of mosquito in these experiments as well. In one of these experiments, 600,000 mosquitoes were released over Avon Park and in another 150,000 insects were released in specially designed paper bags that were designed to open up when they hit the ground.

Truthout.org interviewed residents (or test subjects) of Avon Park still living in the area who related that there were at least 6 or 7 deaths resulting from the experiments. As quoted by Truthout, one resident said, “Nobody knew about what had gone on here for years, maybe over 20 years, but in looking back it explained why a bunch of healthy people got sick quick and died at the time of those experiments.”  Truthout goes on to point out that around the same time of the Avon Park experiments “there were at least two cases of Dengue fever reported among civilian researchers at Fort Detrick in Maryland.”

In 1978, a Pentagon document titled, “Biological Warfare: Secret Testing & Volunteers” revealed that similar experiments were conducted in Key West by the Army Chemical Corps and Special Operations and Projects Divisions at Fort Detrick.

Like the current situation, U.S. government agencies teamed with NGOs, academia, and other organizations to conduct mosquito-related projects. Operation Bellweather, a 1959 experiment consisting of over 50 field tests, was conducted over several states including Georgia, Maryland, Utah, and Arizona, and Florida. Operation Bellweather was coordinated with the Rockefeller Institute in New York; the facility that actually bred the mosquitoes. What’s more, the experiment was aided by the Armour Research Foundation, the Battelle Memorial Institute, Ben Venue Labs, Inc., the University of Florida, Florida State University, and the Lovell Chemical Company.


The military and CIA connections to Dengue fever outbreaks do not end with these experiments, however. It is widely believed that the 1981 outbreak in Cuba was a result of CIA and U.S. military covert biological attacks. This outbreak occurred essentially out of nowhere and resulted in over one hundred thousand cases of infection. Albarelli and Martell write

American researcher William H. Schaap, an editor of Covert Action magazine, claims the Cuba Dengue outbreak was the result of CIA activities. Former Fort Detrick researchers, all of whom refused to have their names used for this article, say they performed ‘advance work’ on the Cuba outbreak and that it was ‘man made.’

In 1982 the CIA was accused by the Soviet media of sending operatives into Pakistan and Afghanistan for the purposes of creating a Dengue epidemic. Likewise, in 1985 and 1986, authorities in Nicaragua made similar claims against the CIA, also suggesting that they were attempting to start a Dengue outbreak.

While the CIA has characteristically denied involvement in all of these instances, army researchers have admitted to having worked intensely with “arthropod vectors for offensive biological warfare objectives” and that such work was conducted at Fort Detrick in the 1980s. Not only that, but researchers have also admitted that large mosquito colonies, which were infected with both yellow fever and Dengue fever, were being maintained at the Frederick, Maryland facility.

There is also evidence of experimentation with federal prisoners without their knowledge. As Truthout reports:

Several redacted Camp Detrick and Edgewood Arsenal reports indicate that experiments were conducted on state and federal prisoners who were unwittingly exposed to Dengue fever, as well as other viruses, some possibly lethal.

With all of the evidence that CIA and military tests have been conducted regarding Dengue fever, there is ample reason to be concerned when one sees a connection like the recent release of mosquitoes and the subsequent outbreak of Dengue fever in Florida, a traditional testing site for these organizations.

The response to the Dengue outbreak should also be questioned as aerial spraying campaigns were intensified. While these sprayings were claimed to be for the eradication of the Dengue-carrying mosquitoes, the number of people who contracted the illness actually rose.

Another questionable incident related to mosquito-borne Dengue fever and the sudden outbreak occurred on November 15, 2010. A University of South Florida molecular biologist apparently committed suicide by drinking cyanide at a Temple Terrace hotel.  Dr. Chauhan, had studied mosquitoes and disease transmission at the University of Notre Dame. While ordinarily this would not be cause for concern, when one considers the level of interest maintained in mosquito-borne illnesses by both the military and intelligence agencies, the death of Dr. Chauhan might well be something that should be investigated further.

Until her death, she was a post-doctoral researcher in the Global Health department in the College of Public Health. Those who knew her described her as both very bright and very enthusiastic. Maybe this is a coincidence, but regardless, it is one that should be looked at closely.

Unfortunately, the issue of GM insects being released into the wild does not end with increasing Dengue fever and malaria. In 2009, The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation awarded $100,000 each to researchers in 22 countries in order to develop mosquitoes that would act as “flying syringes.” Essentially, the mosquitoes would be genetically engineered to deliver vaccines with each bite.

The money was distributed to a wide variety of academic institutions, non-profit organizations, government agencies, and private companies. The funding was part of what was termed in an AFP article “the first round of funding for the Gates Foundation’s ‘Grand Challenges Explorations,’ a five-year 100-million-dollar initiative to ‘promote innovative ideas in global health.’”  The basic premise behind the flying mosquito vaccines is that an insect will be genetically modified to produce antibodies to a certain disease in their saliva, which is then transmitted to the individual when the mosquito bites them.

There is a host of problems with this method that range from the moral to the scientific. First, the presence of antibodies does not necessarily mean immunity, and the transfer of them does not in any way provide immunization to the subject being injected with them. The science related to antibodies and immunity is still largely unsettled. Vaccines, themselves, are completely ineffective and have never been proven effective by a study that was not connected to a drug company or a pharmaceutical company.[1] They are, essentially, faith-based medicine.

Even more frightening is the potential of releasing genetically modified mosquitoes that contain actual diseases in their systems to purposely cause a human pandemic. Those who have weakened immune systems would be at the highest risk, but this would no doubt include everyone else as well since they would also be infected with the viruses when bitten. Person-to-person spreading would take over where the mosquitoes left off. Add to this the potential for simultaneous pandemics (if different versions of the insects were used simultaneously) and one has the recipe for genocide on a mass scale. Unfortunately, this is the scenario that many have envisioned for some time.

Nevertheless, although Gates has invested so much money, and so many hardworking individuals and prestigious universities have invested so much time and effort, the general consensus of the media is that the flying syringes will never take flight. This is because, as Science NOW reports,

The concept of a ‘flying vaccinator’ transgenic mosquito is not likely to be a practicable method of disease control, because ‘flying vaccinator’ is an unacceptable way to deliver vaccine without issues of dosage and informed consent against current vaccine programs. These difficulties are more complicated by the issues of public acceptance to release of transgenic mosquitoes.


However, it is quite difficult to believe that the Gates Foundation distributed such a vast amount of money to researchers without first questioning whether or not their efforts were feasible for future use. It is likewise very hard to believe that once these issues were considered, that the Gates Foundation would simply throw away money on a project that was doomed to failure. In fact, anyone who actually believes this is unfortunately very naïve.  Clearly, we are being conditioned to accept and expect these organisms to be released on the public on some future date. What the context will be, however, is anyone’s guess.

Cholera death toll in Haiti rises to more than 3,000

By Moni Basu, CNN

December 31, 2010 -- Updated 1712 GMT (0112 HKT)

A lack of access to drinking water and difficulties distributing medical supplies have added to the problems in Haiti.

STORY HIGHLIGHTS
Many Haitians lack access to safe drinking water
The distribution of supplies remains a logistical problem
The government estimates there will be 400,000 cholera cases by next October

(CNN) -- In the 10 weeks since an epidemic erupted in Haiti, cholera has killed more than 3,000 people -- partly because the distribution of health supplies remains a logistical nightmare.

A global medical aid agency battling the disease added Friday that another aspect of the problem has been a lack of access to untainted drinking water.

The death toll soared to 3,333 and another 140,000 people have fallen sick, Haiti's Ministry of Health reported Friday, publishing the most recent data available through December 26.

Something tells me that Rockefeller agents will be attending that Obesity Truth semilar at USF in April to make sure the main speakers either:

* make no mention of aspartame and MSG
* dismiss "aspartame and MSG cause obesity, cancer, and diabetes" as "conspiracy theory"

And if one of the main speakers mentions how aspartame and MSG cause obesity, cancer, and diabetes and use documented evidence to back up their claims, they could end up "suicided" like the dead microbiologist. They have to make sure the sheeple continue to believe that fat and sugar alone cause obesity and use that as a pretext to implement their pharmaceutical/scientific dictatorship.

Judging by the recent We Are Change Chicago confrontation of Dr. Oz, hardcore obesity truth might get you ejected and arrested.

Cholera spreads all over Dominican Rep.
Tue Jan 4, 2011 3:5AM

The cholera has now spread to all provinces in the Dominican Republic as an outbreak of the water-borne disease in neighboring Haiti has claimed thousands of lives.


"The number of people receiving medical treatment in Haiti has exceeded 150,000 and over 3,300 people have died. Another 139 have contracted the disease in the Dominican Republic," RIA Novosti news agency quoted Russia's chief sanitary doctor, Gennady Onishchenko, as saying on Monday.

He also warned Russian tourists of the possibility of the epidemic spreading there from Haiti.

Onishchenko noted that scope of Haiti cholera spreading showed that the world was on the brink of the first cholera pandemic in the 21st century.

Drug-resistant malaria could spread fast, expert warns
By Stephanie Nebehay

GENEVA | Wed Jan 12, 2011 12:57pm EST

GENEVA (Reuters) - Drug-resistant malaria could spread from southeast Asia to Africa within months, putting millions of children's lives at risk, a leading expert warned on Wednesday.

Nicholas White, professor of tropical medicine at Mahidol University in Bangkok, called for a war before it is too late on the malaria strain resistant to the drug artemisinin that first emerged along the Thai-Cambodian border in 2007.

This longer-to-treat form of malaria is suspected of breaking out along the Thai-Myanmar frontier and in a province of Vietnam, where tests are under way to confirm it, but the great fear is of it reaching Africa.

"It is a time bomb, it is ticking. It has the potential of killing millions of African children," White told Reuters.

Poor Sanitation In Haiti, Polio
Vax Produce Polio Outbreak



From Patricia Doyle, PhD
1-23-11
 
It looks like polio is spreading...due to polio oral vaccine.
 
I also note that one of the patients who was flown to North Carolina may have put the community at risk in North Carolina as the hosital was originally given the diangosis of Guillain Barre Syndrome and not told of possible polio caused by the vaccine with live virus.
 
In this day and age, it bogglese my mind that we rely on a vaccine that has a live virus and can spread polio...rather than spend the money on common municipal sanitation measures. 
 
This is a rather long post but it is well worth the read as it does show oral polio vaccine can cause polio outbreaks.
 
 
Given the sanitation situation in Haiti, I feel that we could see a major outbreak of polio and many deaths.  Th polio virus will exist in the environment of Haiti for years to come.

ACUTE FLACCID PARALYSIS - HAITI: REQUEST FOR INFORMATION
 
 
Date: Mon 17 Jan 2011
From: James Wilson [email protected]
ProMED-mail regrets the delay in posting. - Mod.MPP
Subject: Haiti: Suspected VDPV Type I Cases
 
_________
 
I realize many of you are waiting anxiously for the diagnostic  results of the suspected VDPV [vaccine derived poliovirus] Type I  cases that presented as reported "ascending paralysis"/Acute Flaccid  Paralysis (AFP).
 
Here are updates as we understand them:
 
1. Three adult cases were identified at a medical facility in Port de  Paix last week [week of 10 Jan 2011]. Two were fatal, and one remains  paralyzed and ventilator-dependent at an ICU in Port au Prince.  Several samples were acquired from this patient for diagnostic  testing. The surviving patient was initially diagnosed with  Guillan-Barre Syndrome.
 
2. An additional pediatric case was identified as having been  medivac'ed to Charlotte, North Carolina, where she remains  ventilator-dependent in an ICU. This case was found to have been ill  originally in October [2010]; she lived in Petionville. It is notable  the medical team involved in this case had diagnosed the child with  Guillan-Barre syndrome. ... Once the question of VDPV was raised,  there was concern about the safety of the Charlotte community, given  the nationwide problem of childhood vaccination compliance.
 
3. An anonymous HEAS [Haiti Epidemic Advisory System] partner  reported seeing a "16-18 year old from Fermate die of acute flaccid  paralysis but had no idea at that time the government reported such  things. We spent a long time trying to sort out what part of spinal  cord might have given him an ascending flaccid paralysis causing  death from respiratory failure over the course of about 24 hours and  could not come up with a medical, physiological answer except  Guillan-Barre. Polio never entered my brain. He had a fracture in his  lower leg and had a spinal anesthetic which resolved, but he came  back the next day complaining of weakness and trouble breathing."
 
4. Investigation by officials has uncovered multiple additional  suspect cases for diagnostic testing in both the Port de Paix and  Port au Prince areas.
 
As reported previously, Hispaniola (starting in Haiti, with spread to  the Dominican Republic) was the site of a large outbreak of  Vaccine-Derived PolioVirus (VDPV) Type I from 1998-2001 that debunked  the previously held belief that oral polio vaccine only caused rare  single-case reversions. Both Port de Paix and Port au Prince were  involved in the outbreak. Several environment samples provided  evidence of environmental contamination. The virus, an unstable  reverted mutant, was found to have recombined with 4 indigenous  enteroviruses. This series of mutations resulted in a novel virus now  capable of aggressive transmission, severe neurological disease, and  fatalities. It is unclear what the actual case fatality rate is when  compared to wild type polio. My personal opinion is it is likely  higher given this was/is an unstable mutant still adapting to both  the environment and the host population.
 
The good news is rapid emergency vaccination with OPV in 2001 was  thought to have brought the situation under control. However, the  current situation challenges the notion of whether the virus was  truly contained, hence the absolute need for definitive, credible  laboratory evaluation of both environmental and human samples.
 
We were dismayed to realize the number of people involved in the  initial care and transport of the Port de Paix patient cluster who  did not provide warning of the situation. They were interviewed after  discovery of a You Tube video depicting the transfer of one of the  patients by one of our astute HEAS members on [9 Jan 2011].  Potentially exposed Haitian and non-Haitian personnel included the  staff of the Port de Paix and Port au Prince facilities and 2  transport teams. We are fortunate none of the involved personnel have  reported symptoms. It is key to note that personnel vaccinated  appropriately for polio are immune; however, Haitian personnel and  the surrounding community are an entirely different matter...
 
Laboratory results are still pending. We hope this will turn out to  be a false alarm, but as the appearance of cholera has shown us,  complacency costs lives.

The above email is the 1st information that ProMED-mail has received  on the apparent outbreak of acute flaccid paralysis in Haiti, and we  are grateful to Dr. Wilson for sending this alert. On searching the  web, this moderator was able to find the earlier alerts related to  the identification of a "cluster" of acute flaccid paralysis cases  posted on a blog known as the Haiti Medical and Public Health  Information Sharing Environment at  http://haiti.mphise.com/ru/re-update-alert-acute-flaccid-paralysis.
 
The outbreak of VDPV in Hispanola was covered by ProMED and can be  reviewed through reading the prior posts referenced below. At the  time of this outbreak (2000-2001), there was a total of 21 cases of  VDPV-associated paralysis on Hispanola (Haiti 8 and the Dominican  Republic 13), of which 12 cases were reported in 2000 and 9 cases  were reported in 2001. 
 
 
http://www.polioeradication.org/Dataandmonitoring/Poliothisweek/Circulatingvaccinederivedpoliovirus.aspx.
 
 
Kew et al demonstrated that the viruses responsible for the paralytic  poliomyelitis outbreak in the Dominican Republic and Haiti were  derivatives from an attenuated poliovirus vaccine (OPV) in use during  1998-1999. (See Kew O, et al. Outbreak of Poliomyelitis in Hispaniola  Associated with Circulating Type 1 Vaccine-Derived Poliovirus.  Science 12 Apr 2002: 356-359. Abstract available at  http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11896235.
 
 
Kew mentions that it is common for vaccine viruses to "back mutate" (revert to wild  poliovirus-like neurovirulence), but the concerns arise in areas with  low vaccination coverage and, therefore, low herd immunity, so that  these reverted viruses are in an environment favorable for  circulation and propagation of an outbreak of paralytic disease. (See  prior ProMED postings on other events associated with VDPVs.)
 
As part of the global polio eradication initiative activities, all  cases of acute flaccid paralysis (AFP) in individuals less than 15  years of age are to be reported and investigated. A benchmark  indicator of adequate surveillance activities is a reported AFP rate  of at least 1 per 100 000 population annually. According to  monitoring data available on the WHO immunization monitoring website,  during the period 1996 through 2010, non-polio AFP rates reported in  Haiti were less than 1 per 100 000 population under age 15 years for  all years during this period, including 2000 and 2001, the 2 years  during which there were cVDPV (circulating vaccine derived  poliovirus) associated paralytic cases, and AFP surveillance was  significantly increased (from rates of 0.0/0.1 up to 0.6 and 0.8 in  2000/2001 respectively) (data available through an interactive page  at:  http://apps.who.int/immunization_monitoring/en/diseases/poliomyelitis/case_count.cfm.
 
These figures suggest that surveillance for paralytic disease in  Haiti has been suboptimal and may well not rule out the possibility  of having had some "below the radar" circulation of poliovirus,  either wild poliovirus (WPV) or vaccine derived poliovirus (VDPV). In  addition, as seen with the recent experience with cholera in Haiti,  the possibility of introduction of WPV is there, as there has been  significant influx of international workers in the post earthquake  relief activities.
 
Unfortunately, laboratory confirmation at this point in time may be  challenged as 2 of the identified cases were fatal cases, one had  onset of illness in October 2010, so a negative virus isolation study  will not definitively rule out a viral infection, leaving the one  case presently hospitalized in Haiti on a respirator as the only case  in which there is a reasonable likelihood of successful virus  isolation studies. That being said, the possibility of a several  cases of Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS) occurring in close temporal  proximity also exists. GBS has been associated with gastrointestinal  and respiratory infections (both viral as well as bacterial), and  following vaccination, all 3 pre-disposing events/conditions have  been coexisting in the present environment in Haiti.
ProMED-mail awaits further information on the results of 
investigations and laboratory studies.

And why was Haiti turned into an offshore laboratory for bioweapons?

The re-installation of the CIA's favorite dictatorial dynasty:  the Duvaliers.

PDF, I odn't knwo what your background is, but can you or Phasma or someone help expalin what the last document may mean in laymen's terms.

This is meant to be constructive criticism, not an attack.

I believe that last piece may have imporant information, but I don't know (personally) what it would be.

My background is not much in the way of biology/biochemistry.

Hi and sorry!
The last one is not meant for reading in entirety, but does admit straight from the Air Force that Mefloquine is no longer an effective malaria prophylaxis medication due to the fact that it is resisted by some strains of malaria.

The doc itself, http://www.phsource.us/PH/PDF/PARA/Public%20Health%20Glossary.pdf, is called "PUBLIC HEALTH GLOSSARY: A Terms and Definitions Guide for US Air Force Public Health Professionals"
As you can see the definitions are quite short! It's almost as though most medical personnel operate at the layman level of knowledge, simply following orders. When doctors start acting like this, society can't hold for long.. but that's another story lol!

And about the protozoa,

See, these guys here talk about physical ways to combat malaria: http://www.malariajournal.com/content/4/1/12
They talk about water quality and infrastructure etc. as a way to fight the disease; i.e. technology, education, advances.
Others are talking about drugs and vaccines.
But where sanitation is not being addressed and food is not priority one either, and there is no clean water, it would not matter if people were immune to malaria because there are always other diseases, and they would be dying of malnutrition and immune damage anyway. Malaria is a problem, but it's also a tool for globalist agendas that deal harshly with common people.

and i do post some very random stuff, sorry about that!! not expert here lol

Is melfloquine the current standard treatment?

UsesMefloquine is used to prevent malaria (malaria prophylaxis) and also in the treatment of chloroquine-resistant falciparum malaria. As mefloquine resistance spreads, mefloquine has started to lose its efficacy.

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines to prevent malaria, Mefloquine is no longer the drug of choice to treat malaria (and it is not necessarily the best drug to prevent malaria) caused by chloroquine-resistant Plasmodium vivax.[1]

Mefloquine has shown efficacy in an in vitro assay against progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML). Biogen Idec has announced a clinical trial of mefloquine in HIV-related PML, to be completed in november 2010.[2][3]

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mefloquine

------------------------------------------------------------------

Now, i don't know how recently it stopped being used to treat Malaria (according to the article it was stillused to treat falciparum -- though it appears from your article that it is no longer necessarily effective against that, if I am reading it right).

It appears to still be used as a prophylactic gainst various forms of malaria.

I wonder how effective it really is at that.

And, I wonder what IS the current standard treatment now.

Now, I want to look more into this again.

Thanks.

Treatment

Further information: Antimalarial drug


When properly treated, a patient with malaria can expect a complete recovery.[79] The treatment of malaria depends on the severity of the disease. Uncomplicated malaria is treated with oral drugs. Whether patients who can take oral drugs have to be admitted depends on the assessment and the experience of the clinician. Severe malaria requires the parenteral administration of antimalarial drugs. The traditional treatment for severe malaria has been quinine but there is evidence that the artemisinins are also superior for the treatment of severe malaria.[80] A large clinical trial is currently under way to compare the efficacy of quinine and artesunate in the treatment of severe malaria in African children.[citation needed]

Active malaria infection with P. falciparum is a medical emergency requiring hospitalization. Infection with P. vivax, P. ovale or P. malariae can often be treated on an outpatient basis. Treatment of malaria involves supportive measures as well as specific antimalarial drugs. Most antimalarial drugs are produced industrially and are sold at pharmacies. However, as the cost of such medicines are often too high for most people in the developing world, some herbal remedies (such as Artemisia annua tea)[81] have also been developed, and have gained support from international organisations such as Médecins Sans Frontières. The most effective strategy recommended by WHO is the combination therapy ACT (artemether and lumefantrine) or FDC (Simplified Fixed-Dose Combination) with artesunate and amodiaquine in order to avoid the development of drug resistance against artemisinin-based therapies. Herbal teas only provide varying amounts of artemisinin and are not the treatment of choice particularly in severe Falciparium malaria.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malaria

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Good thing the EU is outlawing those somehwhat effective herbal medicines though -- not.
