    'Appalling irresponsibility': Senior scientists attack Chinese researchers for

    Isn't that nice to know, the people that are intending to "save" humanity through vaccines are creating situations that could see millions dead.

    'Appalling irresponsibility': Senior scientists attack Chinese researchers for creating new strains of influenza virus in veterinary laboratory
    By STEVE CONNOR
    Thursday 02 May 2013
    Senior scientists have criticised the “appalling irresponsibility” of researchers in China who have deliberately created new strains of influenza virus in a veterinary laboratory.
    They warned there is a danger that the new viral strains created by mixing bird-flu virus with human influenza could escape from the laboratory to cause a global pandemic killing millions of people.
    Lord May of Oxford, a former government chief scientist and past president of the Royal Society, denounced the study published today in the journal Science as doing nothing to further the understanding and prevention of flu pandemics.
    “They claim they are doing this to help develop vaccines and such like. In fact the real reason is that they are driven by blind ambition with no common sense whatsoever,” Lord May told The Independent.

    I always think of the Andromeda Strain when I read stuff like this. Scarey.

    While, I wanted to show what happened just a couple years ago.

    The basics were that a contractor to deliver the vaccines tested the batch on some ferrets, the ferrets died and after testing showed the vaccine contained live virus. Baxter claimed cross contamination, however, the labs follow bio safety level 3 protocols, which prevents such cross contamination...

    Unfortunately the relevant article has been removed from the server.

    Just like viruses for Windows. People started creating viruses so as purchasing an antivirus is a must. Except that now it is done with people!

    Freaking Chinese researchers! They throw ethics out of the window and make the rest of scientists look bad!

    This is one of the reasons why coming zombie takeover is projected by experts to begin in rural china.

    The U.S. perfected small pox in a lab, making it 99% lethal. Then the Russians obtained some of that. Now some of it is missing and who knows who has it. We can't really point the finger.

    Real life isn't a movie. Of all the things in the world to be afraid of, this is one of the dumbest.

    You know what happens in the unlikely event that a vial of this stuff shatters in a comical fashion in the laboratory? Someone sweeps up the floor and then washes their hands. It's the flu. It doesn't spontaneously convert itself into a gaseous state and spread throughout a lab.

    It isn't just Chinese mad scientists creating deadlier strains of diseases.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    You guys shouldn't scare the crap out of me before I start my weekend. Is it asking to much to discuss this on Monday?
    I have CDO, it's like OCD but the letters are in alphabetical order like they should be.

    I do believe the greatest holocaust danger to the human race is bio-research and development as it bypasses the safeguards of evolutionary nature. Given the mobility of people and one mutation could essentially extinct the human race - and very quickly.
