Former Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Robert Redfield penned an opinion editorial this week calling for a global moratorium on gain-of-function research.
In an opinion piece for the Wall Street Journal , Redfield and Dr. Marc Siegel of NYU Langone Health argued that until lawmakers can conduct a “comprehensive bipartisan investigation into the origin of Covid-19,” every lab around the world needs to pause its gain-of-function research “while authorities develop a clear and careful policy to help prevent the next pandemic.”
Redfield noted that COVID-19 has the properties that “allow its spike protein to change its orientation and dock more easily with a human cell” and until authorities can verify what role the Wuhan lab played in the virus’s spread, investigation must continue.
Gain-of-function research involves scientists extracting viruses from the wild and engineering them to infect humans in order to study potential therapeutics including vaccines. In 2012, Dr. Anthony […]
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We just launched a GiveSendGo page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
