There's quiet news quickly percolating through the medical world from MIT:

New drug could cure nearly any viral infection

Note that this drug targets RNA of virally infected cells, theoretically of any virally infected cell. On the surface, this sounds wonderful: a one-time vaccination or therapy against all manner of colds, influenza, perhaps some kinds of cancers, for which there is a certain evidence of a viral cause, even perhaps to AIDS itself.

But note how the drug works: it kills the cells virally infected, preventing the spread of the virus. What if something went wrong with the recognition mechanism of such a drug? What if the drug "recognized" healthy cells as virally infected? The result would be obvious. Consider that one sentence toward the end of the article again:

"Each DRACO also includes a “delivery tag,” taken from naturally occurring proteins, that allows it to cross cell membranes and enter any human or animal cell. However, if no dsRNA is present, DRACO leaves the cell unharmed."

There, in one sentence, is the nightmare scenario in a nutshell. I have blogged previously about the consequences of genetic engineering, and the fact that our corporations and government agencies have, with respect to GMO crops and foods, fallen far short of exercising due caution to the wider human and environmental impacts of their engineered products. We can ill afford to ignore this development, and can ill afford to trust any pharmaceutical company or government agency to do adequate testing. This story is a development that we all need to watch very carefully. It affords, needless to say, great promise, and certainly I would be the last person to suggest that those suffering from deadly viruses should not have access to a wonderful technology. But by the same token, it contains the promise not only of a great boon, but a great peril as well.

    RIP Human Race

    Post Mortem: And so the Human race died out a short and horrible death at the hands of a virus killer that rebelled against its creators.

    This remains me of Firefly and the movie that ends the series Serenity and a Japanese anime movie I stream on Hulu in which this scientist destroys everything from people to plants with his experments these arrogant jerks never learn their lessions. They just go on doing the same mistakes.

    The scripting is so canned and overly dramatic that I kind of chuckled, nevertheless the hypothetical scenario proposed by Dr. Rima Laibow is no laughing matter. I think the alleged Agenda 21 plan would dovetail perfectly with this new “brilliant discovery.”

    Time to brush up on my Quechua.

    Really I said it once before and i will say it again! Modern medicine stinks it isn’t like it was years ago when they actually had the testing and proof to back things up.

    I don’t trust NEW anything anymore from big pharma and big medicine or the FDA. I will stick to my alternative meds and research my own health problems. colloidal silver look it up. And any and all alternative cancer treatments will be used before i ever think of Chemo and Radiation and I call it a modern draconian medicine at its worst. Heck no treatment at all is better many times according to how they figure life expectancy using the ACS method life expectancies. Suppression and Corruption and harrassment is also a favorite weapon in our modern medical world.

    You want a cure for cancer? Abolish the American Cancer Society, AMA, and the FDA. So those that have worked or been successful in the past can come back and be studied as they should have been instead of railroaded out of business and out of the country.

    Go to Europe or Mexico any place else but the USA.

    What does it tell you about a new med advertized these days on TV? Works for only a few certain people in one or two categories! Then the long long list of side effects and people who can’t use it with other medical complications! Most people you would think to be embarrassed to show how poorly their modern drug really performs!

    Really do your own research there are some simple answers cures and fixes out there.

    But really just like computer viruses being invented or researched! it is the same for modern organized corporate medicine a severe case of Munchhausen Syndromn has infected their corporate boardrooms and thinking.\

    If Jesus came back today the FDA AMA, ACS would try to run him out of town as well or impose restrictions on what they would allow him to do.

    Given that we do not know as much as these folks like to think we do about what really is “a virus” and what isn’t, or whether some viruses are actually necessary to the proper function of the cell, this will be a monumental catastrophe.

    Viruses, like bacteria, are not all bad for us, some may in fact be vital to our existence. Given what overdosing everyone with antibiotics has done, I predict this will be far, far worse.

    Again, the microbial model of disease is a misreading of the function of the body in spacetime, and they are confusing part of the mechanism of rebalancing with the “cause” of a disease. This is like thinking a fever is “bad,” when it really is a good mechanism for ridding the body of toxic waste through a microbial infection, which is actually far more complex than allopathic (allopathetic?) medicine understands.

    Will this be more like Firesign Theater: “Take one of these and never feel pain again!”


    …More like Pink Floyd: “Just a little pinprick and there’ll be no more ahhhhhh-ah-ahhh-ah-ahh-ahhh?”

    That strategy of killing the cell to kill the virus sounds like the logic of burning a field of crops because the locusts are swarming. Or carpet-bombing places to make them safe for democracy. Idiots.
    Anyway, there are a number of cheap, non-invasive, and more importantly, non-lethal, ways of handling various virii, i.e. MMS, Bob Beck’s device, UV treatment of blood, Rife, etc.

      In an unrelated note, just got my copy of Grid of the Gods yesterday from Amazon (pre-ordered back in June).

    yet more great, highly intelligent insights from you, Dr. Farrell-

    may God bless you, keep you safe and allow your absolutely brilliant mind to expand even farther

    Surely hungry people is waaay more important than miracle cream whip vaccines? It’s quintessential Anglo Saxon solipsistic myopia.

    R Complex solution for a cerebral cortex problem.

    One in 7 is hungry from the last data.

    Could Karla Kierkegaard be reporting a treatment of the sickness unto death?

    DRACO!?!?!?!? All that reminds me of is REPTILIANS!

      the word “draconian” didn’t emerge from a non-existence…
