Are you aware that genetically modified mosquitoes are being set for release worldwide? Right after GM mosquitoes were let loose in Brazil, dengue fever cases spiked. Now, the Florida Keys are in danger of facing a similar fate. The mosquitoes haven’t even been officially approved, but Oxitec, the British company who created the mosquitoes, has already shipped them to Florida.
Of course Oxitec isn’t the only company that assumes it can control Nature’s balance with GM mosquitoes. Though it has already let GM mosquitoes loose in the Cayman Islands, and Malaysia with no success.
