I just read something that further underscores the fact that the
government agencies, that are supposed to protect the public, have
sold out. Under the heading, “Want viruses with Your Cholesterol?” I
found this morsel of food for thought:
“The Food and Drug Administration recently approved a mixture of six
bacteria-killing viruses, called bacteriophages, to be sprayed on meat
and poultry to combat fecal bacteria called Listeria
monocytogenes. Listeria can cause a serious infection in
pregnant women, infants, and adults with compromised immune systems. The
new virus spray, manufactured by a Baltimore company called Intralytix,
is to be used on ready-to-eat meat and poultry products right before
they are packaged. The use of the viruses will not be disclosed on
Wow! What could be more brilliant?! A spray to make it safe to eat
“doo-doo” contaminated products!
Please note the last sentence: “The use of the viruses will not be
disclosed on package labels.” (My emphasis)
Even though proponents of the use of phages to eradicate harmful
bacteria that are antibiotic resistant are vocal in their support of
this technology, can you imagine what future, unforeseen, negative
consequences may result? How do we know that at some point a virus won’t
attack the “good” bacteria that live in human intestines? Just think of
the possibilities! Well, I’m sure the pharmaceutical industry will be
very glad to come up with “band aids” that the Food and Drug
Administration will be only too happy to approve!!!
Isn’t it interesting how this circle of deception and corruption just
grows and grows? Instead of admitting that following God’s original
intent (Genesis 1:29) is the answer to human-made problems, more “band
aids” and subterfuge are resorted to. After all, the powerful flesh
industries must be kept happy as they rake in their ill-gotten gains
from the torture of God’s creatures!
