The controversy over recombinant DNA research

During the meeting of the “Recombinant DNA  Discussion” meeting in 1978, at the Jaarbeurshallen in Utrecht the Netherlands, microsurgeon, Johan Van Dongen found out that DNA recombination experiments are technically very simple that time. 

Although DNA recombination experiments require expensive investments, they can be carried out from the kitchen table of every house and that means that effective control is not possible, an ideal situation for extremist groups such as the Taliban, Al Qaida and ISIS.

During this above-mentioned meeting, the end conclusion was; “Only an international, equitable arrangement will help to ensure that this research takes place in a disciplined form.”

Hahaha..., indeed a statement of scientists in the field of science but not amateurs in the field of terrorism and rogue states like Iran, North Korea, and Russia nowadays. 

As a matter of fact this very month of March 2018, Iran tried to hack nuclear plants in order to put the whole world at risk.

The fact that the reference to possible dangers in nuclear systems would be unacceptable is now obsolete by reality. For example, very serious incidents have occurred in the nuclear power stations of Tihange Belgium, Windscale, the current Sellafield United Kingdom, Chernobyl and Three Mile Island. 

Nor is there any mention of the nuclear explosion in the Russian Ural, the nuclear explosion in the American Nevada desert, the French trial areas of Mururoa and in the French Sahara. Nor has there been the talk of derailing viruses as a result of the bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

In addition, the nuclear material needed for atomic weapons, the uranium ore, which was won by black slaves and prisoners of war in the "Congolese Kilo mines" and in former Czechoslovakia and even in former East Germany, also has the necessary Aids similar diseases.

And what about the thousands of under and above-ground atomic bomb tests? Why is a comparison between genetic manipulation with the nuclear systems inadmissible? 

We still have to wait and see what genetic manipulation will have in the long run although we have seen a lot of consequence already such as Aids and all kind of so-called allergic reactions.

And it remains to be seen what the Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy BSE causing Prpr genes will still produce riddles in our own hereditary system. 

In addition to all the benefits so praised by the scientific branch, there will certainly be disadvantages. That much is clear to me. The only question is which?

Because, as I said before, DNA recombination experiments are technically very simple, they do not require expensive investments, they can be carried out in the kitchen of every house and that means that effective control is not possible. 

Therefore only an international, equitable arrangement will help to ensure that this research takes place in a disciplined form, but that is out of reach now. The Box Of Pandora has opened.

There are many evidence from experiments that the theoretical risks not will but has become reality! The point is only, to what extent has it been sought and to what extent is what is present now sufficient to continue, for example in the direction of the scientific guidelines. 

The fact that people did not search for them is very obvious when one looks at something more in detail about the observation that no diseases have occurred at that time (1978) to date in the DNA recombination workers.


During the past decades, twenty-two AIDS vaccines have been tested, including the vaccine that has been tested in Uganda among 45,000 young children. 

Between 1960 and 1973, a large-scale medical field study took place in the West Nile district at the initiative of the WHO, where three times a year blood was taken from the above-mentioned group of children to investigate whether there was a relationship between an endemic disease and the virus that causes Pfeiffer's disease (Burkitt's Lymphoma).

When the frozen blood samples from these children stored in the German cities of Freiburg and Stockholm were re-analyzed in 1984, 21% of the blood samples taken were found to contain carcinogenic viruses and as many as 66% of the blood samples were infected with the AIDS virus.

The English Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill called Uganda the pearl of Africa at the time and the Dutch professor H.H. Cohen, advisor of the Dutch Government, stated at the DNA congress in Utrecht in 1978 that he had made the vaccines safer.

The 'Trojans' of Porton Down

Porton Down, South England, is a center for scientific research in the field of infectious diseases. An institute, very impressive situated on a hill from which one can survey the low plains of Salisbury. 

As the only research institution in the United Kingdom, Porton Down has a "phase four" laboratory, the most dangerous research phase, for example, Ebola, which exists, in which scientists have been doing all kinds of secret tests since the Second World War in the field of chemical and biological warfare. 

Apparently, aerobiology, the possibility of spreading infectious biological material through the air, also plays an important role here.

In Porton Down too, many experiments have been conducted with genetic recombination and radiation techniques since the 1950s, turning SV40 viruses, that infect common Coli-bacteria, into bacteriophages. These viruses are able to multiply themselves in a bacterium and then kill the bacterium. 

The total cycle, which is the infection with the virus DNA in the bacterium, the multiplication, the replication of the virus DNA in the bacterium, and the killing of the bacterium in which also new virus particles are released, takes about twenty minutes.

In some cases, viruses settle in a bacterium without directly killing them. In addition, the viruses multiply together with their host. Such a bacterium infected with a virus can continue to proliferate for a very long time so that the contaminated bacteria can get up to a million offspring without causing the body to sound an alarm.

Only after a signal from outside and that can, for example, ultraviolet light, antibiotics or radiation, the bacteria will fall apart and there will be many tens of millions of virus particles.

These viruses then commit a heavy attack on the human immune system, which is therefore completely disrupted. Moreover, the viruses immediately search for bacteria to infect them.

Since the 1950s it has been discovered that viruses can be made radioactive to infect bacteria in an artificial way. In particular, the Escherichia Coli Bacteria that occur in our intestine is extremely suitable for such artificial infections, as old TNO member Cohen also discovered. 

And because people were already aware of the danger associated with such genetic recombination techniques, the intestinal bacteria infected with these experiments were first made 'crippled' so that they could not be maintained in the intestines of humans and animals.

The fact that the genetic recombination techniques have also yielded interesting experiments in Porton Down is evident from a report published in 1996 on 'human nuclear guinea pigs', of which the British Peace Movement says that Porton Down was commissioned by the British Ministry of Defense in the 1950's carried out radioactive radiation experiments on two hundred of its own staff. 

The dutiful civil servants were injected with radioactive substances or they had to breathe in these substances. Furthermore, the ignorant staff had put on food that contained about ten radioactive substances, including the very dangerous elements of technetium and strontium. In fact, the developments of Aids continued here after the Hitler era.
