(NaturalNews) The H5N1 avian flu virus, which ministers of health propaganda around the world have been using for years to generate overblown panic and fear, is the subject of a new biotechnology project involving genetically-modified (GM) chickens. According to the U.K.'s Guardian, genetic manipulators have developed a transgenic variety of chicken that they claim is unable to transmit avian flu to other birds, even after contracting it themselves.

For their work, Laurence Tiley, a molecular virologist at the University of Cambridge in the U.K., and his colleagues injected a short-hairpin RNA gene into chicken embryos that artificially produces what the Guardian describes as a "decoy" molecule in the birds' cells. This decoy molecule is then picked up by the bird flu virus, which incorporates it, rather than its own genetic material, into the virus' genetic line, preventing it from replicating and spreading.

In tests, birds modified with the decoy molecule were fully capable of contracting H5N1 avian flu, but they were unable to spread it to other birds, including other GM birds. Infected non-GM birds, on the other hand, were fully able to spread the disease as they normally would, which the scientists claimed was evidence that their experiment was a success.

You can read an abstract of the study, which was published in the journal Science, here:

Like all other GM foods and animals, the GM chickens developed for the study have yet to undergo any long-term safety studies, which means there is no indication that they are in any way safe for human consumption. Even the Frankenbirds' creators admit that their science experiment is only intended for research purposes, and not for human consumption.

It is the unintended consequences of such research that are the most concerning; however, as much of the scientific community is now literally obsessed with genetically-altering every plant, food crop, animal, and even human being it can get its hands on. There is nothing sacred, in other words, when it comes to leaving things alone in their natural form -- every living being and organism is now considered to be "flawed" and in need of genetic correction.

The answers to flu prevention are right in front of us, and every single one of them exists in nature. Vitamin D, medicinal mushrooms, aloe vera, garlic, olive leaf extract, oil of oregano -- these are just a few of the many natural compounds that possess powerful immune-boosting, flu-fighting capabilities. Why are researchers not spending more time investigating these natural solutions to disease rather than tampering with the blueprints of life at every chance they get?
