SCIENTISTS HAVE TAUGHT SPINACH TO SEND EMAILS AND IT COULD WARN US ABOUT CLIMATE CHANGE
It may sound like something out of a futuristic science fiction film, but scientists have managed to engineer spinach plants which are capable of sending emails.
Through nanotechnology, engineers at MIT in the US have transformed spinach into sensors capable of detecting explosive materials. These plants are then able to wirelessly relay this information back to the scientists.
When the spinach roots detect the presence of nitroaromatics in groundwater, a compound often found in explosives like landmines, the carbon nanotubes within the plant leaves emit a signal. This signal is then read by an infrared camera, sending an email alert to the scientists.
This experiment is part of a wider field of research which involves engineering electronic components and systems into plants. The technology is known as “plant nanobionics”, and is effectively the process of giving plants new abilities.
“Plants are very good analytical chemists,” explains Professor Michael Strano who led the research. “They have an extensive root network in the soil, are constantly sampling groundwater, and have a way to self-power the transport of that water up into the leaves.”
“This is a novel demonstration of how we have overcome the plant/human communication barrier,” he adds.
So after grinding this spinach into a powder it’s safe to eat? Has the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved this? Will there be labels on the powder that the converted-to-be edible product originally served as sensors for wireless transmissions? Some health nuts may not want to add something like that to their smoothies – or their children’s.

As a reminder, “cycle thresholds” (Ct) are the level at which widely used polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test can detect a sample of the COVID-19 virus. The higher the number of cycles, the lower the amount of viral load in the sample; the lower the cycles, the more prevalent the virus was in the original sample.
Numerous epidemiological experts have argued that cycle thresholds are an important metric by which patients, the public, and policymakers can make more informed decisions about how infectious and/or sick an individual with a positive COVID-19 test might be. However, as JustTheNews reports,health departments across the country are failing to collect that data.
Here are a few headlines from those experts and scientific studies:
4. A new study from the Infectious Diseases Society of America, found that at 25 cycles of amplification, 70% of PCR test “positives” are not “cases” since the virus cannot be cultured, it’s dead. And by 35: 97% of the positives are non-clinical.
5. PCR is not testing for disease, it’s testing for a specific RNA pattern and this is the key pivot. When you crank it up to 25, 70% of the positive results are not really “positives” in any clinical sense, since it cannot make you or anyone else sick
So, in summary, with regard to our current “casedemic”, positive tests as they are counted today do not indicate a “case” of anything. They indicate that viral RNA was found in a nasal swab. It may be enough to make you sick, but according to the New York Times and their experts, probably won’t. And certainly not sufficient replication of the virus to make anyone else sick. But you will be sent home for ten days anyway, even if you never have a sniffle. And this is the number the media breathlessly reports… and is used to fearmonger mask mandates and lockdowns nationwide…
Almost 7K deaths, including my dad is something that should be reported. A statewide mask mandate when @dougducey reopened the state could have saved thousands of lives.
All of which is background for an intriguing decision made by Florida’s Department of Health (and signed off on by Florida’s Republican Governor Ron deSantis).
For the first time in the history of the pandemic, a state will require that all labs in the state report the critical “cycle threshold” level of every COVID-19 test they perform.
All positive, negative and indeterminate COVID-19 laboratory results must be reported to FDOH via electronic laboratory reporting or by fax immediately. This includes all COVID-19 test types – polymerase chain reaction (PCR), other RNA, antigen and antibody results.
Cycle threshold (CT) values and their reference ranges, as applicable, must be reported by laboratories to FDOH via electronic laboratory reporting or by fax immediately.
Full press release below:
So, why is Florida doing this? There appears to be three options:
Pro-Trump – Florida is attempting to pre-empt the Biden Team’s plan to slash the Ct used by labs for COVID “case” which will eliminate the false positives and show “cases” plunge “thanks to Biden’s mask/lockdown/vaccine-confidence” rules.
Pro-Biden – Florida is beginning the ‘fake rescue’ plan outlined here (and above)
Pro-Science – Florida is the first state to actually pay attention to the real ‘science’ of PCR tests.
We hope, for the sake of Americans’ livelihoods it is Option 3 and the ‘casedemic’ will collapse on itself and allow we, the people to go back to some sense of normality.

The most quality and powerful scientific study on masks which concluded no difference between those who wore masks and a control group who did not was not allowed to be published by any of the establishment medical journals. The study concluded that the “recommendation to wear surgical masks to supplement other public health measures did not reduce the SARS-CoV-2 infection rate among wearers by more than 50% in a community with modest infection rates, some degree of social distancing, and uncommon general mask use. The data were compatible with lesser degrees of self-protection.” Not only did it not reduce it by 50% as noted in the conclusion, the between-group difference was -0.3 percentage point – less than half of 1%, or essentially wearing a mask made NO difference in ones ability to test positive for a covid test. There were approximately 3000 in both the test group and the control group, a total of about 6000 participants and almost 5000 were able to complete the study successfully.

A baby girl has made history by becoming the first infant to be born from an embryo that has been frozen for nearly three decades.
On Oct. 14, 1992, Molly Everette Gibson was frozen as an embryo after being donated by her biological parents to the National Embryo Donation Center (NEDC), a pro-life organization.
Mark Mellinger, marketing director for the NEDC, told The Christian Postthat the donation of the embryo was given so that she would be born to another set of parents who had previously been unable to conceive.
“[Her parents, Ben and Tina Gibson, are] doing really well,” he explained. “I still think they’re in a little bit of amazement. This was a couple who, if you had asked them five years ago if they could have a baby, they probably would have laughed at you. They’re just exhausted by media interviews. They’ve just run out of things to say.”
Science Alert reports that Molly, who was born in Tennessee on Oct. 26, is nearly as old as her mother, Tina, who is 29 years old and was born 18 months before Molly was frozen in her embryonic form.
Three years before Molly’s birth, her older biological sister, Emma Wren Gibson, was also conceived from an embryo that was frozen for 24 years.
For couples struggling with infertility, doctors are able to help them by uniting the eggs and sperm of couples in laboratories to create embryos. Mellinger noted that the doctors attempt to conceive as many embryos as possible in order to provide an effective treatment.
The remaining embryos are then frozen and stored away after parents conceive the desired amount of children.
According to the NEDC, across the U.S. there are around 1 million frozen embryos.
Mellinger, however, noted that an estimated 40,000 to 60,000 of them grow up. Usage of embryo’s vary from parents who either have them destroyed or used for science experiments. But most parents have them frozen because they don’t know what else to do with them.
Mellinger told The Christian Post that Molly’s birth primarily shows “God’s heart for life.”
“The freezing techniques back then [were] not as good as they are now,” he continued.” However, if embryos were frozen properly and cared for properly in the interim, they can come to birth and be perfectly normal, happy children. The shelf life of frozen embryos might be infinite.”
Molly is currently the oldest embryonic baby to be born, but she’s not going to be the last. According to Mellinger, Embryologists at NEDC say it’s likely an embryo will soon be born after 30 years frozen. He added that statistics on frozen embryos are rare, but none has shown evidence of an older baby.
Molly’s birth also beats the odds as the risk of miscarriages among babies born under in vitro fertilization (IVF) are 2 percent higher than from natural pregnancies, verywellfamily.com reported.
At the present time, there are no laws prohibiting the creation of excess embryos in the U.S. using IVF, Mellinger explained.
He also noted that laws governing reproductive medicine are “very few”, especially in America.
According to U.S laws, embryos are considered property instead of people, Mellinger said. When adoption takes place, it’s considered a property transferred as the baby is given the names of the parents on the birth certificate instead of its genetic parents.
Mellinger contended that pro-life and pro-adoption people should find a mutual understanding in backing the embryo adoption movement. While most Christians call the ethics of IVF into question, Mellinger stressed that embryos need parents.
“Each believer has to carefully consider where he or she falls on [the morality of IVF]. It’s not something that the Bible obviously addresses in an explicit way. It’s a matter of conscience. I think embryo adoption is a needed practice. The bottom line is, the lives are here. These tiny, frozen lives are here,” he concluded.
NEDC currently holds the record for having the most births through embryo adoption in the world, with 1,013 births on record.

We were told initially that the premise for lockdown was to ‘flatten the curve’ and therefore protect the NHS from being overwhelmed.
It is clear that at no point was the National Health Service (NHS) in any danger of being overwhelmed, and since May 2020 covid wards have been largely empty; and crucially the death toll from covid has remained extremely low.
We now have hundreds of thousands of so-called ‘cases’, ‘infections’ and ‘positive tests’ but hardly any sick people. Recall that four fifths (80%) of ‘infections’ are asymptomatic (1) Covid wards have been by and large empty throughout June, July, August and September 2020. Most importantly covid deaths are at an all-time low. It is clear that these ‘cases’ are in fact not ‘cases’ but rather they are normal healthy people.
So-called asymptomatic cases have never in the history of respiratory disease been the driver for spread of infection. Rather it is symptomatic people who spread respiratory infections – not asymptomatic people.(2)
It is also abundantly clear that the ‘pandemic’ is basically over and has been since June 2020. (3)
We have very highly likely reached herd immunity and therefore have no need for a vaccine.
We have safe and very effective treatments and preventative treatments for covid, we therefore call for an immediate end to all lockdown measures, social distancing, mask wearing, testing of healthy individuals, track and trace, immunity passports, the vaccination program and so on.
There has been a catalogue of unscientific, non-sensical policies enacted which infringe our inalienable rights, such as – freedom of movement, freedom of speech and freedom of assembly. These draconian totalitarian measures must never be repeated.
Covid has proved less deadly than previous influenza seasons – There were 50,100 flu deaths from December 2017 to March 2018 in England and Wales. There were 80,000 flu deaths in 1969. To date we have circa 42,000 covid related deaths in the UK.
We have never locked down society for a respiratory virus before.
The basis for lockdown was a mathematical model by Professor Neil Ferguson. His modelling which predicted half a million deaths in the UK has been roundly condemned as being not fit for purpose. His estimated death figures were clearly wrong by a factor of 10 or 12 times. (1)
Professor Ferguson’s modelling was not even peer reviewed before being acted upon by several nations. Eminent epidemiologists such as Professor Gupta from Oxford University were ignored, they estimated the death count would be far lower in the UK.
Professor Ferguson has a long track record of woeful modelling he was entirely wrong about sars, mers, mad cow’s disease (CJD), and swine flu. Why did the world listen to him again? (2)
Countries which did not lock down Sweden, Japan, Taiwan, South Korea and Belarus have all done significantly better than us in terms of percentage of population deaths. They also have herd immunity and intact economies.
Lockdown did not save lives, and this has been published in the Lancet ‘….in our analysis, full lockdowns and wide-spread COVID-19 testing were not associated with reductions in the number of critical cases or overall mortality.’ (3)
The vast majority of deaths occurred in elderly and very elderly people
The vast majority of deaths occurred in people with pre-existing serious health issues such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer’s, diabetes etc
Covid poses virtually zero risk to the under 45’s who have more chance of being struck by lightning than dying from covid.
Covid poses a very small risk for healthy under 60 year olds who have a greater chance of accidental drowning than dying from covid.
The entire nation was essentially placed under house arrest. We have never isolated the healthy before.
Isolating the sick and those who are immunocompromised makes sense. Isolating the healthy has hampered the establishment of herd immunity and makes no sense.
To put it into perspective we had 115,000 smoking related deaths in the UK in 2015 compared to the 42,000 deaths from covid.
We usually have around 600,000 deaths every year in the UK, roughly 1600 deaths per day.
COLLATERAL DAMAGE THE CURE IS WORSE THAN THE VIRUS
Placing the public under virtual house arrest has caused untold damage to both physical and mental health.(1)
Ventilating patients instead of oxygenating patients proved to be a deadly policy and an unwarranted failure. Ventilation resulted in many unnecessary deaths. (2)
Sending infected people from hospitals to care homes placed the elderly and frail under unnecessary risk and resulted in many unnecessary deaths. (3)
Blanket Do Not Resuscitate (DNR) orders were imposed on thousands of people without their consent nor the consent of their families – this is both unlawful and immoral and lead to unnecessary deaths in care homes. (4)
Hospitals became essentially ‘covid only’ centres vast numbers of patients were wilfully neglected, resulting in many thousands of unnecessary deaths. (5)
The government’s own report estimates that some two hundred thousand (200,000) people will die as a direct result of lockdown – not the virus. Hospitals being closed, suicide and poverty will result in more deaths than the virus. (6)
The cure is worse than the disease!
DEATH CERTIFICATES (1)
The majority of people who died had significant comorbidities, such as Alzheimer’s, cancer, cardiovascular disease and diabetes.
Counting death certificates with a ‘mention’ of covid as being a death caused by covid is a gross misrepresentation of the facts and has vastly over exaggerated the death toll.
The rules for the signing of death certificates have been changed solely for covid by the Coronavirus 2020 Act.
Doctors do not even need to have physically seen the patient in order to sign death certificates.
The Act has removed the need for a confirmatory medical certificate for cremations.
Autopsies have virtually been banned, no doubt leading to misdiagnosis of the true cause of deaths; and also reducing our understanding of the disease itself.
Worse still, care home staff who largely have no medical training are able to give a statement as to the cause of death.
Covid was put on death certificates merely on the ‘suspicion’ of people having covid. This may well be unlawful, since it is a crime to falsify death certificates.
People who die within 28 days of a positive pcr test are deemed to have died from covid, even if they die in a car crash or from a heart attack; clearly over inflating the death toll (2)
Reports now estimate that as many as six and a half million (6,500,000) people in the UK will lose their jobs as a result of lockdown. (1)
It is well known that poverty directly adversely affects health, we can expect to see many people suffering with poor health and resulting in many premature deaths, as a direct result of lockdown.
Government have acted maliciously in censoring doctors, nurses and NHS staff. The people have the perfect right to hear what is going on in hospitals, and the medical profession have a duty to look after the public and to reassure them. (1)
The medical profession have not been allowed to let the public know that covid wards have been empty for months, nor that covid deaths have reached an all-time low for months, and this has unnecessarily added to the public’s distress and anxiety.
Doctors and scientists with views that differ from the government narrative have had their videos and articles removed from the internet
TESTING – FALSE POSITIVES
PCR tests cannot be verified for accuracy as there is no ‘gold standard’ against which to check them. The virus has not been purified. (1)
PCR tests cannot detect viral loads and are prone to false positives. (2)
A positive PCR test does not mean that an individual is infected nor infective. (3)
In fact approximately 90% of the PCR positive ‘cases’ are false positives. We therefore have no second wave and no pandemic. (4 , 5)
The government’s report estimates a false positive rate of between 0.8 to 4.0 % using data from other viral infections – not from covid (6)
Viral fragments may remain in people’s bodies for several weeks following recovery from infection. (7)
The crisis will never end if we are waiting for zero positive tests. Everyone has probably had a cold caused by a coronavirus and will likely have a few viral fragments matching those of the cousin SARS-CoV-2 virus (8)
Testing healthy asymptomatic individuals is non-sensical, unscientific and a colossal waste of money. The governments moon shot daily testing program will cost £100 Billion roughly two thirds of the annual NHS budget.
Antibody testing is not the gold standard as many people have T-cell immunity, and antibodies may not circulate following recovery from infection.
The controversial drug Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) has been unfairly smeared, by the WHO, CDC, NIH and the media.
However HCQ has very firm support from, amongst others: Professor Harvey Risch epidemiologist from Yale, The American Association of Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS), American Frontline Doctors, the Henry Ford Health System and Professor Didier Raoult microbiologist and infectious disease specialist – to name but a few. (1)
The Lancet was even forced to retract a study on HCQ after it was revealed by the Guardian newspaper that they had been completely fabricated and written by a sci-fi writer and a porn star. Even following this astounding revelation HCQ was still banned in most countries. (2)
HCQ according to AAPS has a ninety per cent (90%) cure rate when given early and alongside zinc (3)
HCQ is safer than many over the counter drugs such as aspirin, Benadryl and Tylenol.
The AAPS also point out that there has never been a vaccine as safe as HCQ. (4)
HCQ has been licensed for over sixty years and has been safely used by billions of people worldwide. There is a very small risk of arrythmia which is easily monitored.
Why was HCQ banned then? Could it be that there are no huge profits to be made from this out-of-patent drug?
HCQ was used to great effect in the Sars1 outbreak of 2005 (5)
In short had HCQ been available then there would not have been a pandemic !
Preventative measures such as hydroxychloroquine or vitamins D, C and zinc should have been recommended for the public. (1)
Early calcifediol (25-hydroxyvitamin D) treatment to hospitalized COVID-19 patients significantly reduced intensive care unit admissions (2)
Vit D reduces the severity of covid. (2,3)
Voluntary isolation of the frail – should they so choose; in combination with preventative measures would have been a far better strategy. The rest of society could and should have continued as normal.
A rushed vaccine is clearly not in the public’s best interest
Indemnifying vaccine manufacturers against all liability is also clearly not in the public’s best interest
CONFLICTS OF INTEREST
Chief Scientific Officer Sir Patrick Vallance has £600,000 worth of shares in GSK Glaxo Smith Klein. He has in recent years sold £5 million of shares in GSK which he ‘earned’ whilst chief of GSK (1)
Sir Chris Whitty, Chief Medical Officer UK, accepted over £30 million in funding from the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation to study malaria vaccines. (2)
It has become clear that members of SAGE, Public Health England (PHE), World Health Organisation (WHO), Centre for Disease Control (CDC), National institute for Health (NIH) etc have many conflicts of interests. They all accept very large ‘donations’ from the pharmaceutical and vaccine industry. These conflicts of interests may well have effectively corrupted their integrity. (3)
It is also clear that governments are heavily lobbied by the pharmaceutical industry and the vaccine industry, again this may have compromised their integrity. (4)
CUI BONO? WHO BENEFITS?
Vaccine manufacturers will make trillions from this, as will track and trace manufacturers, and the pharmaceutical industry stand to make trillions from covid testing.
Prime minister Boris Johnson announced the new ‘moon shot’ testing will cost £100 Billion, approximately two thirds of the annual NHS budget.
Surely these vast sums would be far better spent on treating all of the neglected patients who have been wilfully neglected during lockdown and who now face huge waiting lists.
We have effective and safe treatments and preventative medications for covid, therefore there is no need for any lockdown restrictions and associated measures. The pandemic is essentially over as can be seen by the consistent low death rate and hospital admissions over the past four months.
We demand the immediate and permanent ceasing of all lockdown measures.
Lockdowns do not save lives, that is why they have never been used before. Civil liberties and fundamental freedoms have been unnecessarily removed from the public and this must never happen again.
Preventative measures such as Hydroxychloroquine, vitamin C, Vitamin D and zinc must be made readily available to the public.
Isolation must be voluntary. People are perfectly capable of making their own assessment of the risks and must be free to go about their lives as they so choose. People must have the right to choose whether to isolate or not.
Likewise, businesses must have the right to remain open if they so choose.
We demand that doctors, nurses, scientists and healthcare professionals must be permitted free speech and never be censored again.
Professor Mark Woolhouse epidemiologist and specialist in infectious diseases, Edinburgh University Member of the Scientific Pandemic Influenza Group on Behaviours, that advises the Government stated that –
…Lockdown was a monumental disaster on a global scale. The cure was worse than the disease.
I never want to see national lockdown again. It was always a temporary measure that simply delayed the stage of the epidemic we see now. It was never going to change anything fundamentally, however low we drove down the number of cases,
We absolutely should never return to a position where children cannot play or go to school.
I believe the harm lockdown is doing to our education, health care access, and broader aspects of our economy and society will turn out to be at least as great as the harm done by Covid-19.’(1)
The World Doctors Alliance agree fully with Prof Woolhouse’s assertions, he is right! We must never lockdown again!
NB the term ‘covid’ has been used to represent Sars-CoV-2 and Covid-19
