NASA released a map that shows the 50 U.S. cities most likely to benefit from resources to fight and control the spread of the Zika virus.
These cities are also likely to be targeted for the release of genetically modified mosquitoes proven to stop the disease-spreading mosquitoes in their tracks.
It’s a controversial, yet seriously considered method in the fight against Zika. Genetically modified male mosquitoes, injected with a fatal gene, are then sent out to mate.
When they mate with female mosquitoes carrying the Zika virus, their offspring inherit the fatal gene and die.
Targeted testing outside the U.S. has reduced mosquito populations by over 90%.
Now the first use of GMO mosquitoes is being considered in the U.S.
The FDA has already approved the use of GMO mosquitoes.
And, it’s only a matter of time before your state will need to consider using these genetically modified mosquitoes, too. [For more on why, click here.]
The impact of this controversial treatment is what makes the following presentation a must-see for every American.
Take a few moments to watch it, and let us know what you think…
