Some people do bad things, but, they don't look bad.
They are others who do good, but, they don't look good.
It's how we are intrinsically made, that shapes our personality, defines our intentions and describes our actions.
Our #DNA is the repository that informs our evolution.
Ask the maker why he made it?
Not from the doer.
We human beings are at the receiving end, always!!
We are what we are!
We all are made according to a certain specification list.
If we try to mutate ourselves forcefully too much, we won't remain what we are.
Be #Adaptative without violating the complex laws of nature.

"The promise & peril of the Bio Revolution"

"...the world cheered [] that 3 #gene-based COVID19 #vaccines – 1 developed by German #biotech co. BioNTech in collab. w/ Pfizer, another by [] biotech firm Moderna, & a 3rd by [] AstraZeneca – had proved effective in clinical trials."
"But in October, researchers revealed that off-target effects of the #CRISPR-Cas9 #gene-editing tool used to repair a blindness-causing gene in the early stages of human #embryo development often eliminated an entire #chromosome or a large part of it."

"Our deepening knowledge of #biology#genes, #microbiomes, & neural signals – is making it increasingly possible to "engineer life."... #gene drives applied to infectious-disease vectors [] could save many lives, but we may not be able to control them."

1/124 This thread is going to examine & dissect the very specific behavioral-patterns, underlying market-architecture, fraudulent scientific methods, orthodox rituals of the vast pharma-wasp nest set around the queen wasp Christian Drosten (@c_drosten). #wild #ride #PCRGate
2/124 We'll examine the inner circle arranged around Christian Drosten's real time #PCR-test-religion; key wasp nest stakeholders are: Olfert Landt (@tibmolbiol), Andreas Nitsche (Tib-Molbiol, now @rki_de), @MarionKoopmans, @MackayIM, @DrTedros (@WHO), @wef and many more.
3/124 My prior thread scratched the surface when it comes to huge 'conflicts of interest' in regards to undeniable scientific bias & staggering commercial partiality, also already tracing the international scheme-vector Berlin to Australia.

The Aristocracy - Survival of the Fittest via @YouTube
Actually, this documentary has set my mind into commotion and took me back into those years when the New #Labour and #Blair came into power in the late 1990s in the #UK.
We eagerly watched what reforms under the #collectivists would imply, as the UK had a manifest #class system.
The worse thing which #Blair could do, at that time, was to remove the #hereditary #peers from the House of #Lords.
This particular political decision had far-reaching consequences for the #British Society,as a vernacular mindset that rejected #evolution & tradition jointly arose

What your are thinking right now is having an impact on your genetic expression and in turn your health. What you are feeling right now is having an impact on your genetic expression and in turn your health.
What emotion you are going through right now is having and impact on your genetic expression and in turn your health.
Your thoughts, feelings and emotions impact your biology! If your emotions can bring such a physical and mental change in you, you now know how it’s impacting your genes at a cellular level too! When they say genetic most people give up like there is nothing to do.

(2/13) In #prostatecancer cell lines & human tissue, co-targeting #PIM & #PI3K #kinases seems promising!

We reckon ~20% of prostate cancer patients could benefit from this approach in future & these tend to be the sicker patients.

Scroll for #science!

(3/13) Fig1a:

From publicly available data we see that some patients overexpress either the #PIM pathway, the #PI3K pathway, or both. Each of these targets have inhibitors in development, that could theoretically be of benefit to any of these patient groups when combined 🤞

Ahora que están de moda los #anticuerpos y todo el mundo quiere unos por Navidad... Alguna vez os habéis preguntado cómo se producen así de repente cuando te infectas o por qué son efectivos? Os cuento algunas cosas sobre ellos porque es un proceso que MOLA MUCHO⬇️
Los anticuerpos o inmunoglobulinas son producidos por los llamados linfocitos B. Estos son células que se generan en la médula ósea y tienen la capacidad de fabricar anticuerpos. Los anticuerpos son proteínas que se unen de forma específica a los patógenos y los bloquean.
Para que un anticuerpo se produzca tiene que existir un linfocito B que tenga un gen que codifique para ese anticuerpo con la secuencia exacta que haga que se una específicamente a su patógeno.

There's a seasonality to many respiratory #viruses. Will #SARSCoV2 [#COVID19] follow a similar pattern? We hope so BUT we don't really know. We know when air is humid / warm ➡️droplets gather more moisture ➡️too heavy to stay airborne / fall more quickly➡️transmission harder. Image
There was a significant correlation between #SARS cases & environmental temperature. A sharp rise or decrease in the environmental temperature related to the cold spell led to an increase of SARS cases because of the possible influence of the weather on the human immune system. Image
Plus the winter season has a profound effect on how human #genes work - this may explain why some illnesses are aggravated in the #winter. During cold, winter months, genes involved with #immunity & specifically #inflammation were more active. nature.com/articles/ncomm…

Yes! For example this team showed that exposure to Wi-Fi radiofrequency #radiation for 5 hours modulated E. coli gene expression (52 #genes were upregated, 49 downregulated) 👉 that led to changes in several bacterial cellular + metabolic processes: nature.com/articles/s4159… ImageImage
2/ This study found that exposure of E. coli #bacteria to 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi radiofrequency radiation increased their antibiotic resistance and motility 👉 Moreover, #biofilm formation was enhanced in E. coli, S. aureus + Staph epidermis: europepmc.org/articles/pmc68… ImageImage
3/ It’s worth noting that bacterial communication in #biofilms is partly mediated by ion channel mediated #electrical signaling (even over long distances) 👉 Check out this interview I did w/ UCSD’s Gurol Suel on the topic: microbeminded.com/2018/01/29/20-… Image

@jenbrea Hey! Yes several people spoke on that topic at the recent #ILADs conference I was at 👉 and remember this case history which found that a woman treated w/ antibiotics to target persistent #Bartonella had substantial improvement in EDS symptoms: ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/P…
@jenbrea 2/2 As for #mast cell activation in response to persistent #pathogens...there is extensive literature on how a range of bacterial, viral and fungal pathogens can drive #MCAS-like symptoms 👉 for example: ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/P…
@jenbrea 3/3 There is even a receptor common in #connective tissue who’s activity controls mast cell activation in response to bacterial signaling molecules that drive #biofilm formation: ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/31278…

Breaking↘️ @US_FDA Finds Unexpected Antibiotic Resistance #AMR #Genes in ‘Gene-Edited’ Dehorned #Cattle: "The @Recombinetics gene-edited cattle do contain #DNA unnatural to cattle". independentsciencenews.org/news/fda-finds… @Act4AnimalsEU
@US_FDA @Recombinetics @Act4AnimalsEU "FDA’s demonstration that gene-editing techniques can introduce foreign DNA is likely to be seen as a significant blow to the no-regulation argument. It is also a powerful vindication of the #EU approach, which is to regulate gene-edited organisms as #GMOs."
@US_FDA @Recombinetics @Act4AnimalsEU This is one more and very compelling argument to be critical of #CRISPR technologies to genetically modify animals. We recently expressed more criticism here, with regard to using gene editing to prevent puberty in #pigs: allianceforscience.cornell.edu/blog/2019/07/a…

For me, the real issue in the #trans #GRA reform is #maleviolence against #female & trans. I note #transmen seem to be absent from discussion. They obvs don't present as #women so don't use women's spaces. But they can't draw attention to themselves as trans because... (1/2)
(2/2) in a male space they would run the risk of attack by men who would see their bodies as still female. I can't find stats on transmen being violent, or female violence on transmen. I guess there will be some, but very small no's. The problem is male violence. #patriarchy...
So we need to be looking at #male #violence and how/why our society raises #boys to think violence is a way of dealing with the world. NB I know this is a generalisation and not all males are violent & not all females are peaceful!
