The Gulf Blue Plague is Evolving – Part II: Corexit + Bacteria = Mutated Viruses


The following is referenced from a ProjectAvalon.net thread:

"Adaptation to the spilled oil may result in an increase in some types of vibrios"

Vibrio vulnificus A certain very aggressive bacteria is on the rise, feeding and thriving on the dispersed oil-mix:




Someone can get infected with it through a small wound. A tiny scratch

The Gulf Blue Plague is Evolving – Part II: Corexit + Bacteria = Mutated Viruses
August 30, 2010 


by Michael Edward

If you haven’t read The Gulf BLUE PLAGUE is Evolving or Gulf Oil
Dispersant COREXIT is 11 Times More Lethal than Oil, you should do so
in order to better understand what is being presented here. Both
articles, along with others related to the Gulf time-bomb biological
disaster, can be found at http://worldvisionportal.org/wvpforum/viewforum.php?f=52 .

Without a doubt, the Gulf Blue Plague is evolving biologically as
you will see factually set before you here. In all probability, this
is the primary reason the mainstream media (MSM) has been silenced,
especially with regards to local media outlets along the Gulf Coast.

The Gulf of Mexico is a biological time bomb that is undoubtedly
evolving into a chemically induced breeding ground for mutating
viruses. All the aspects exist in the Gulf right now and have been
established for over three months. Their ongoing manipulated evolution
into a viral plague or viral epidemic is evident, yet has been
ignored.

THE CATALYIST: COREXIT DISPERSANT CHEMICALS

The most prevalent ingredient in Corexit is 2-Butoxyethenol. This
compound chemical is especially toxic (poisonous) to the blood,
kidneys, liver and the central nervous system of all mammals, including
porpoises, whales, and humans. Corexit also ruptures red blood cells.
Of and by itself, it causes cancer and birth defects. Oil mixed with
Corexit is 11 times more lethal than oil alone.

The EPA eventually conceded that Corexit is a deadly toxic brew for
50% of any group of test animals that comes in contact with it.

Yet, despite the obvious inherent dangers of Corexit, it’s being
sprayed nightly by boats and aircraft in a foolish attempt to disperse
the surface oil and continue with the ruse that the northern Gulf of
Mexico is nothing to be concerned about any longer.

The problem with using Corexit, especially in the insane amounts
that have already been applied, is that it has never been tested in
such massive quantities; has never been tested for use on fragile
ecosystem marshes; has never been tested for depths below 1,000 meters;
and has never been tested for use with large quantities of bacteria,
such as exist in great quantities in the Gulf of Mexico.

Gulf fishermen and shrimpers are now speaking out about having
sighted graveyards of birds, fish, dolphins and whale corpses floating
on the surface which are being secretly removed during the night by
unknown third-party contracted vessels.

Chris Pinetich, a marine biologist and campaigner with the Sea
Turtle Restoration Project, confirmed what Steve and others had told
me: that Coast Guard planes were flying out at night spraying Corexit
on the water and land. “People need to realize that their water, their
air, the sand they are walking on, they things they are touching when
they wake in the morning are coated with this stuff,” he said. “We are
producing an experiment in the Gulf the likes of which no one has ever
seen. Top scientists admit that. We are all part of the experiment.”
http://counterpunch.org/mcclintock08232010.html

It’ll be years before the full extent of damage is known. However,
it’s already extensive and extremely dangerous, containing 50
micrograms per Liter of “a group of particularly toxic petroleum
compounds,” 6 – 7% of it a deadly benzene*, toluene, ethylbenzene*,
xylene cocktail. [*this will be further discussed later in this
article]
http://www.afterdowningstreet.org/node/54552

Dr. Cake, along with commercial fishermen and Gulf Coast
environmentalists, are drawing direct parallels to BP’s oil disaster
and the use of toxic dispersants as the likely cause of the increased
numbers of fish kills they are witnessing.

“There are several parallels to the spill,” Dr. Cake added. “We have
evidence from fisherman operating in the VOO [Vessels of Opportunity]
fleet and fishermen in the area who observed the spraying of
dispersants by both aircraft and vessels in the immediate vicinity of
the fish kills. Therein lies one triggering mechanism.”

But far more important is that Corexit is mutagen when in the
presence of bacteria, for which the Gulf of Mexico is a primary aquatic
source.

A VIRAL WOMB OF BACTERIA: THE GULF OF MEXICO

Very few people really understand what a virus is or how it evolves.
In the same respect, most don’t comprehend what bacteria are… nor do
they grasp what a cellular mutation is.

BACTERIA

Bacteria are a large group of single cell microorganisms that grow
to a fixed size and then reproduce through a form of asexual
reproduction. Under optimal conditions, bacteria can grow and divide
rapidly and some bacterial populations can double as quickly as every
9.8 minutes.

Most bacteria have a single circular chromosome and inherit identical copies of their parent’s genes (they clone themselves).

However, all bacteria can evolve through changes made to their
genetic material DNA caused by mutations. Mutations come from errors
made during the replication of DNA or from exposure to mutagens
(mutating agents), such as certain chemicals.

Despite their apparent simplicity, bacteria can also form complex
associations with other organisms. If bacteria form a parasitic
association, they are classed as pathogens. Pathogenic bacteria are a
major cause of human death and disease.

Not all bacteria are bad as some are actually good for humans. Of
the 400+ types of bacteria that live in the human digestive system,
many are considered good bacteria – such as acidophilus – because they
help the digestive system to do its job.

VIRUS

The modern word virus comes from the same Latin word which refers to
poison and other noxious substances. Essentially, a virus is a poison
and an imported toxic body. The origins of viruses are always
conceived at a cellular level during the onset of their existence.

BACTERIOPHAGES

In the early 20th century, an English bacteriologist named Frederick
Twort discovered a group of certain viruses that infect bacteria.
These particular viral infected bacteria are now called bacteriophages
or, simply, phages.

Bacteriophages are viruses that change the DNA of bacteria. Many
types of bacteriophages exist. Some simply infect the host bacteria
while others insert into and alter the bacterial chromosome.

Bacteriophages are a common and diverse group of viruses and are
the most abundant form of biological entity in aquatic environments —
there are up to ten times more of these viruses in the oceans than
there are bacteria, reaching levels of 250,000,000 bacteriophages per
milliliter of seawater. These viruses infect specific bacteria by
binding to surface receptor molecules and then entering the cell. Within
a short amount of time, in some cases just minutes, bacterial
polymerase starts translating viral mRNA into protein. These proteins go
on to become either new virions within the cell, helper proteins,
which help assembly of new virions, or proteins involved in cell lysis.
Viral enzymes aid in the breakdown of the cell membrane, and, in the
case of the T4 phage, in just over twenty minutes after injection over
three hundred phages could be released. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virus

As you can imagine, the amount of these viral infected bacteria – or
bacteriophages – in the Gulf of Mexico are immeasurable. They are the
most prevalent biological creature in all that sea water.

What we’re seeing in the Gulf of Mexico is a vast microorganism
community of bacteriological viruses (bacteriophages) that are prime
candidates for mutation if certain factors are present, such as
mutagenic chemicals.

THE ORIGIN OF CHANGE: MUTATED BACTERIAL VIRUSES

The word mutagen comes from Latin meaning origin of change. A
mutagen is a physical or chemical agent that changes the genetic
material of an organism. Because of this genetic change, it increases
the frequency of mutations above the typical level.

Mutations are changes in the DNA or RNA sequence of a virus. It can
occur at both a Gene level – called a Gene Mutation – and at a
Chromosome level – called a Chromosome Mutation. This process of change
is called Mutagenesis.

Let me try to explain this in modern simple terms.

Whenever any type of organism is mutated, you could accurately call
it a mutant life form. For example: If that life form was a young
turtle from Japan, then the mutated organism might be called a teenage
mutant Ninja turtle.

A mutated organism also includes people since we are considered
complex organisms. Spiderman was mutated by a spider bite. The
character Dare Devil had an amazing sense of hearing when he was
mutated by a chemical.

The point is that a mutation can’t occur by itself because it needs something from outside the organism to change the genetics.

Everything that causes a mutation is called a Mutating Agent or a Mutagen. There are three basic types of mutagens:

1) Chemical Mutagens – such as pesticides, benzene, methane, and many others.
2) Physics Mutagens – such as an ultraviolet ray or radioactivity.
3) Bio Mutagens – which are bacteria and viruses.

Chemical agents that cause DNA mutation
Chemical mutation is caused by binding and chemical interaction of a
chemical substance to the DNA. This binding may cause damage to DNA or
may simply cause the genetic code to be misread. Examples of chemical
carcinogens include… vinyl chloride (found in the plastics industry).

Biological agents that cause DNA mutation
There are several biological agents that can cause DNA mutation. This
may include viruses and bacteria. Viruses may use a number of different
complex mechanisms to cause a cell to become cancerous. Some of the
viruses donate their DNA materials to the host cell and cause alteration
in the genetic code.
http://medicineworld.org/cancer/page14.html

Some bacteriophages can enter the host cell, but instead of
immediately making new viral material the bacteriophages DNA will
integrate into the chromosome of the bacteria. This state is called
lysogeny and the virus is essentially silent during this period.

However,

If the bacterial cell containing the integrated viral DNA is
perturbed, such as by UV (ultraviolet) light, ionizing radiation, or
chemical agents that cause mutation, the virus can become activated.
Once activated, the virus replicates, matures, and is released.
http://www.uiweb.uidaho.edu/micro_biology/250/Week12.pdf

The above clearly outlines what happens when certain chemical
compounds, such as those found in Corexit, are introduced to bacteria
or viral bacteriophages. The result is a mutated virus that quickly
duplicates itself, develops into maturity, and then discharges itself
into the environment. A water environment discharge will become
airborne due to high temperatures or as a result of storms.

CHEMICAL MUTAGENS

The mutagenic achievement of certain chemical agents was first
discovered in the former USSR. In 1946, the mutagenic properties of
formaldehyde and mustard gas were discovered. Since then, many
hundreds of chemical mutagens have been established.

It’s only in microorganisms (such as bacteria and viruses) that some
chemical mutagens can drastically increase the mutation rate of
certain genes over the mutation rate of the other genes. Chemical
mutagens are responsible for a greater number of mutations than are
physical mutagens.

Chemical mutagens have been proven to increase the rate of genetic
and chromosomal abnormalities by as much as 100 times higher than the
typical rate for spontaneous mutations. Simply said, the introduction
of chemical agents “super-charges” the speed of mutation in a host
organism.

It is necessary to study the possible mutagenic action of new
drugs, pesticides, and industrial chemicals and to prohibit the
production of substances that prove to be mutagenic.

BENZINE: A CHEMICAL MUTAGEN

Corexit – and its many variant formulas – is what the US Federal
Government and US Department of Defense is spraying from boats and
aircraft onto the surface of the Gulf of Mexico to “disperse” the oil.
Many blame only BP for using Corexit, but the truth is that President
Obama authorized the spraying and use of this dispersant in early May,
2010. That’s why military C-130 Hercules aircraft from the US Air
Force and Coast Guard are involved along with private contractors –
quasi-military mercenary corporations – spraying from their boats.

One of the ingredients in the deadly Corexit brew is Benzene. Of
and by itself, this chemical is a volatile industrial solvent that
comes from crude oil… but is far from crude.

It’s used in the production of plastics, synthetic rubber, and dyes.
Prior to the 1920s, benzene was frequently used as a degreaser for
metal.

The short term breathing of high levels of benzene can result in
death, while low levels can cause drowsiness, dizziness, rapid heart
rate, headaches, tremors, confusion, and unconsciousness (a/k/a BP Flu
or the Gulf Flu).

The major effects of benzene are manifested via chronic (long-term)
exposure through the blood. Benzene damages the bone marrow and can
cause a decrease in red blood cells, leading to anemia. It can also
cause excessive bleeding and depress the immune system, increasing the
chance of infection.

Human exposure to benzene is a global health problem. Benzene targets
liver, kidney, lung, heart and the brain and can cause DNA strand
breaks, chromosomal damage etc. Benzene causes cancer in both animals
and humans.

Pure benzene, for example, oxidizes in the body to produce an
epoxide, benzene oxide, which is not excreted readily and can interact
with DNA to produce harmful mutations.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benzene

If there was ever a perfect chemical agent to be classified as a super-mutagen, Benzene is it.

Benzene, which is classified as a Volatile Organic Chemical (VOC),
was detected in Louisiana at a level that is almost unfathomable. On
April 30, 2010, the Benzene level in the air was recorded at 3,084
parts per billion. On May 2, 2010, it had risen to 3,416 parts per
billion. [Source: http://www.southernstudies.org/2010/05/air-tests-from-the-louisiana-coast-reveal-human-health-threats-from-the-oil-disaster.html ]

If breathing Benzene doesn’t kill you quickly, just imagine what
this chemical mutagen does to any bacteriophages (viral bacterium) it
comes into contact with in the Gulf of Mexico. All it would take is
one minuscule cluster of viral bacteria to become doused in Benzene –
and the other mutagenic chemicals in Corexit – for a viral epidemic to
evolve.

SPANISH FLU-LIKE VIRUS OR A NEW MUTATION IS POSSIBLE

The 1918 Spanish Flu epidemic [influenza or flu is a virus] evolved
in humans because of mutation. The lack of human genes in the Spanish
Flu meant it was entirely foreign to our immune systems leaving us
highly vulnerable. Our protective immune system gave the virus a
significant advantage by providing it with extra time to reproduce
itself in our lungs before we could mount an immune defense.

Flu genes are inherently unstable and mutate regularly. A genetic
mutation occurs through the imperfect recopying of genes during viral
reproduction. Mutation is a very important source of variability for
the flu. It helps it adapt quickly to a new environment or host. The
1918 flu genome contained several small genetic sequences or
polymorphisms that caused it to have lethal characteristics.
Polymorphisms are simply different combinations of nucleotides that
compose one or more RNA genes of the virus.

For instance, differences in hair color are due to polymorphisms in
the human hair pigment gene. All these human genes do the same thing,
determine hair pigment but the result of their work is a little
different. The differences are due to polymorphisms within the gene
structure. Lethal polymorphisms are nucleotide combinations within a
flu gene that code for a particularly nasty behavior. For instance,
one of these directs the virus to attack the brain; others cause the
virus to disrupt the blood clotting system, while some result in attack
of the heart and liver. These behaviors are often fatal and this is
why these polymorphisms are called lethal.
http://www.birdflumanual.com/articles/influenzaEvolutionAdaptation.asp

In RNA viruses, replication of the genome (gene) takes place within
the host cell using a mechanism that is prone to error. Hence,
mutation rates in such viruses are high.
http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/399695/mutation

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?

The Gulf of Mexico is a breeding ground for a pandemic viral plague
primarily because of the chemical mutagens being dumped into the water
in vast quantities that we may never be able to properly verify. The
use of Corexit is no different than adding gasoline to a small fire.
The explosive result is the same.

The Blue Plague may not just be evolving any longer. It may have
already started to mature and replicate in immeasurable amounts.

All it takes for the Blue Plague to become a worldwide epidemic is
for a minuscule cluster of viral infected bacteria to be immersed in a
chemical mutagen, such as Corexit. The potential results could easily
make the 1918 Spanish Flu look minor in comparison.

While those of us living on the Gulf Coast go about our daily lives,
a time bomb is ticking louder and louder in the Gulf of Mexico. It’s
not a matter of if there are mutant viruses present: It’s a matter of
when that first cluster will spread – if it hasn’t started to already –
and how fast it will become a pandemic of astronomical proportions.

We have sent our research and findings to private biology and
virology experts for further verification. Water samples have been
sent to a university laboratory outside of North America. All
additional results will be published as soon as they are received.
