Genetically modified mosquitoes that have been released in Brazil, and may soon be released in Florida to combat the Zika virus, have the potential to directly inject modified DNA into any humans they bite.

The lab-bred GM Aedes aegypti mosquitoes, according to Oxitec – the biotech company that breeds them – are genetically programed to mate with wild females and transfer a gene that is fatal to any offspring.

But critics of the technique say too little is known about the potential for long-term environmental damage, as well as how humans will react to the injection of the gene if they are bitten by a GM Aedes aegypti mosquito.

The Zika virus is not new. As reported by Collective Evolution, it has been around since at least 1947. What’s more, the virus is marketed by two companies, and the Rockefeller Foundation owns the patent on the virus.

There is also the fact that the virus – which is generally weak, causing mostly mild symptoms that disappear in a few days – may not be the cause behind a rash of babies born with microcephaly in Brazil, where the current outbreak began. There could be other environmental factors working in conjunction with the Zika virus, or something else altogether.
