The latest horror from science is being hailed by the science journal Nature as a breakthrough for brain research, but it involves genetically engineering baby monkeys to cripple them and make them cognitively stunted and “autistic.”
“The laboratory monkeys run obsessively in circles, largely ignore their peers and grunt anxiously when stared at,” writes David Cyranoski in this Nature article.
It’s all part of an effort to use genetic engineering to create “psychiatric disorders” in primates so that drug companies can reap billions in profits from the very same conditions caused by mercury in vaccines, toxic processed foods and herbicide chemicals used on genetically modified crops. “If non-human primates prove to be a useful model for psychiatric disorders, China and other countries that are investing heavily in research on monkeys, such as Japan, could gain an edge in brain research,” writes Cyranoski. This ability to genetically engineer cognitive deformed primates gives China and Japan “a clear advantage over the US,” he concludes. CONTINUE
