This blog concerns two subjects. First is the issue of three parents and the second is the issue of fraudulent science.
In the early 1990s when I organized a group calling for the labeling of genetically altered food, I became an activists in the general issue of genetic engineering. That included genetic engineering of humans.
I became aware of two projects that seemed to be on the frontiers of human genetic experimental engineering. One was by Jamie Grifo in Manhattan and the other was a similar project in Australia.
What these medical technologists were doing was to work with women who had given birth to or came from families where there was a known mitochondrial DNA abnormality. The goal was to replace the mitochondrial DNA in the germ cell before fertilization. They were using mitochondrial DNA that was not known to be abnormal.
Mitochondrial DNA is in every cell in many small globules in the cytoplasm outside of the nucleus. It has its own DNA, from the maternal line.
For a woman who was having invitro fertilization, her extracted eggs could have the non-nuclear cytoplasm replaced with that of a woman who’s mitochondria were considered normal. This was before fertilization.
That is the way to produce an offspring with three parents. The father, the nuclear mother and the mitochondrial mother.
By the time I found out about the Grifo project and the Australian project, Grifo had successfully produced six offspring and the Australian team had done a dozen. I reported this to the appropriate person in the FDA and discussed the subject with him. I argued that he should be supervising the experiments. I didn't follow up.
I see the issue is now in public discussion and research is being proposed on this subject. We don't need research. We have at least 18 offspring who are now in their mid-20s to be examined on this issue. If Grifo and the Australians did not keep track of their research offspring they should be put in jail for the rest of their lives.
The fact that I have seen no articles about the presence of many children who are the byproduct of three parents is evidence that science today is a fraud.
We already know from the global warming hysteria that science today is filled with fraud and deception.
The fact that there are adults walking around this planet with three parents and no research is published suggests that science is more corrupt than I ever thought possible.
