    Male Aedes aegypti are super spreaders of mosquito-borne diseases. For example, a male can mate with a female infected with Zika and acquire Zika through venereal transmission. That male can then mate 6 times per day with 6 different females every day of its life spreading Zika. In comparison, a female only mates once or twice in its life. Releasing nearly a billion male Aedes aegypti is incredibly dangerous and stupid. It is Darwin award stupid. Plus it failed in other countries. https://caymannewsservice.com/2018/11/gm-mosquitoes-didnt-work/

    plot twist: the genetically-engineered mosquitoes become intelligent and end up enslaving humans as a food source

    Here more info on GMO mosquitos. It is likely safer than spraying chemicals over neighborhoods. People just get freaked out about the word “GMO”.

    I contacted Hiv in 2017, I was told by my doctor that there's no possible cure for HEPATITIS. I started taking my ARV's, My CD4 was 77 and viral load was 112,450. I saw a website of Dr. Apala also I saw a lot of testimonials about him on how he uses herbal medicine to cure HEPATITIS. I contacted him and told him my problems, He sent me the herbal medicine and I took it for 14 days after then I went for check-up and I was cured. The medicine has NO SIDE EFFECT, there's no special diet when taking the medicine. He also cure ALS, HEPATITIS B, CANCER, HERPES, DIABETES and lots more. You can reach him on e-mail [email protected] WhatsApp +2349051798469 https://www.facebook.com/drapalaherbalhome/

    I’d love to be able to imagine a world without the endless suffering from diseases like dengue and malaria! And re this comment field, just a guess, a wild wild guess, that the haters are all from a background where your kids haven’t been born affected by zika... I don’t know to call it a lack of empathy or something more insulting...
