Genetically Modified Mosquitoes Are Breeding in Brazil...

•, Gizmodo

The plan was to interbreed with normal mosquitoes and, thereby, reduce the fertility rate. However, the mosquito population, after diminishing slightly, now is as large as ever, and traces of the mutated insects have been detected in the natural mosquito population. The fact that scientists said this could never happen is raising concerns about the safety of such experiments. [The long-range outcome of any genetic modification to plants or animals cannot be known with certainty and the inevitable surprises have the potential to destroy entire species – even all life, itself. What fools these scientists are – and what super fools we are for passively allowing them to tinker with the master blueprint of life. Have humans lost their species instinct for survival?] -GEG
