In 2013, a
British biotech company, Oxitec, unleased nearly half a million genetically
modified mosquitoes in Brazil in an attempt to reduce mosquito-borne diseases.
But the experiment has not gone to plan, according to a new paper: the experiment has resulted in the
unintended contamination of the local mosquito population, despite the
assurances from Oxitec that this would not happen. We must make sure similar
experiments are not allowed to occur on American soil.
Write to Congress and the FDA, telling them to stop these experiments.
No more GM mosquitoes
