On Friday, August 18, 2006, the
FDA approved a viral cocktail to be sprayed on foods we eat. This is the
first time viruses have been approved for use as food additives. The FDA wants
you to believe it will be safe to consume these viruses every day for the rest
of your life with no adverse health effects. This is a monumental announcement
by the FDA, indicating they are throwing all caution to the wind regarding the
safety of our food supply.
Are you willing to stand in line for a virus-laden sandwich? How do you like
the idea of buying virus-infested food for your family? The first virally contaminated
foods entering our food supply with the blessings of the FDA
will be luncheon meat and poultry. Live viruses will be sprayed on foods
such as cold cuts, sausages, hot dogs, sliced turkey, and chicken.
At issue is the very real problem of a poor quality FDA-approved food supply
that is already full of diseased and sickly animals, many of them imported from
other countries. The use of antibiotics during growth and radiation during food
processing is required by the fast-food animal farms owned by multi-national
companies to cover up the horrendous health of the animals they wish to feed
to Americans. Animals in poor health are a friendly place for bacteria to grow
and prosper, especially after such meat goes to market. Rather than address
the source of the problem, the FDA wants to add another adulteration into our
The stated goal of the new FDA-approved viruses is to kill a rare bacterium
known as Listeria monocytogenes. This bacterium is killed by cooking;
however, it poses a problem in meats that are cooked during processing and not
cooked again prior to consumption, so it can readily infect foods such as deli
Yes, the FDA plans to use one infectious organism to fight another. The carnage
of battle will end up in your digestive tract along with the victorious live
viruses, which the FDA assures us will not attack human cells. However, they
cannot possibly be certain the viruses will not attack the friendly bacteria
that make up the lining of your digestive tract. The FDA approval
was based on scant human testing, mostly from unrelated medical experiments.
Such safety data is woefully inadequate to determine safe ingestion of a specific
product by humans over the course of a lifetime.
Turning Loose the Bacteria-Killing Viruses
The company that produces these biotech viruses is Baltimore-based Intralytix,
Inc. The viruses are known as bacteriophages, viruses that kill bacteria,
or phages for short. Phages have been around a long time, living as parasites
inside many bacteria.
Intralytix uses biotechnology to grow viral phages in a culture with Listeria,
in theory teaching the viruses to recognize the bacteria. The FDA-approved cocktail
contains six different viruses intended to attack one strain of bacteria.
This concoction is then sprayed on food. If Listeria is present in
the food, the bacteria will ingest the viruses. This results in massive viral
replication inside the bacteria, until such point as the bacteria simply bursts.
This battle results in significant production of bacterial poisons called “endotoxins”,
as the bacteria tries to defend itself. When the bacteria burst, these endotoxins
are released. These, along with the victorious live viruses, will now be on
the food that will be eaten.
The FDA and Intralytix would like us to believe that these viruses will only
attack the specified bacteria they are intended to kill and will be harmless
to humans. I’m sorry to burst their bubble, but they can’t possibly
guarantee such safety. It is true that the viruses, at least at this time, cannot
recognize human cells. However, the virus can potentially recognize normal bacterial
cells in the human digestive tract and may be able to adapt to infect one or
more of these friendly bacteria.
The FDA Certainly Knows There Are Risks
The FDA had some concerns about the amount of bacterial endotoxin in the Intralytix
product before it is sprayed; however, FDA tests apparently showed that the
product was adequately purified and so they declared it safe if used as approved.
Will the FDA diligently monitor the quality of this product once it is on the
market, or will it go the path of many FDA-approved drugs that the agency can’t
keep track of?
There is certainly a risk that humans will be exposed to excessive amounts
of endotoxin. This could come from the manufacturing of the viral cocktail,
the interaction of the viruses with bacteria after being sprayed on food, and/or
the interaction of the viruses with bacteria in the digestive tract.
The human immune system is highly reactive and sensitive to bacterial endotoxins.
They provoke allergy, asthma, autoimmune problems, and elevate cholesterol.
They also interfere with the healthy function of cells
lining the digestive tract. Researchers have demonstrated that the presence
of bacterial endotoxins can start cancer in the colon.
Additionally, the human immune system reacts directly to viral phages. Thus,
a person who eats a lot of processed deli meat is certain to evoke an immune
reaction to the viruses. What will this reaction be? Allergy? Asthma? Autoimmunity?
Cancer? How can the FDA approve a food additive that it knows can induce a variety
of human immune responses? Phages are so good at disrupting normal immunity
that they are being considered for use as part of organ
The ingestion of significant amounts of viral phages into the human digestive
tract is a wild card full of unknown outcomes. For example, it is certainly
possible that these phages, which constantly mutate in order to survive, are
likely to find a way to infect bacteria they were not intended to infect. Since
phages are parasites, they could hijack the friendly bacteria of the digestive
tract and turn them into viral machines, constantly generating viral particles
that are likely to confuse the human immune system, if not directly infect the
body. We know from history that these viral phages can turn innocuous bacteria
into a killer, which is how cholera occurs.
Furthermore, the Listeria bacteria are not going to take the issue lying down.
They will develop resistance to the viruses over time, as we have seen with
the overuse of antibiotics. Going down this path we are likely to have hundreds
of viral food additives in the food we eat, all designed to combat some possible
infection coming from poor quality food. Sooner or later we will inadvertently
create deadly new super-strains of bacteria and/or parasitically infect the
human digestive tract with an untreatable infection.
There is also the very real possibility of unintended viral recombination.
What happens when a person with viral stomach flu eats food containing a dose
of this viral food additive? It is certainly possible for the genetic material
of the flu virus to interact with the genetic material of the viral phages,
provoking an undesirable new viral infection.
Let’s not forget that the FDA won’t tell us which foods in the
food supply contain genetically modified organisms (GMO). Seventy percent of
the packaged food on grocery shelves already contains GMO adulterated food.
These foods have viral promoter genes woven into the DNA of every cell, a technique
used to implant a pesticide toxin into every cell of this fake food (see Fight
for Your Health, chapter 15). What happens when the viral phages interact
with the viral promoter genes in GMO food? What new virus will be encouraged
Keep in mind that the FDA wants to conduct this experiment on our food supply
to protect a small minority, only about 2500 people, who are made seriously
ill by this infection each year. The ill are mostly pregnant women, elderly
with compromised immunity, and small children. It would be a lot more to the
point if the FDA would simply warn such people that eating these foods, due
to their poor quality of production, may be dangerous. What the FDA should really
do is improve the quality of our food supply, the true source of the problem.
Why expose millions of Americans to an unproven ingestion of live viruses for
the benefit of so few?
The FDA has failed miserably for the past century to protect the public from
the adulteration of our food supply by vested interests. This is just one more
insult added to a long list of injuries.
The Tip of an Iceberg
Intralytix has an agenda for the American food supply, as well as for healthcare
in general. This recent FDA ruling allows Intralytix and other similar biotech
companies to get their foot in a door that should be slammed shut and bolted
The company is also seeking FDA approval for viral sprays to treat foods that
could be contaminated with E. coli and Salmonella, which means that
similar “trained” viruses could end up in a majority of the protein
foods in our food supply.
Intralytix sees financial opportunity. They have already licensed their now
FDA-approved viral spray to an undisclosed multi-national company for use around
the world. When the CEO of Intralytix, John Vazzara, was recently asked about
this partner company, he
refused to disclose their name. The grand profit-driven biotech experiment
on the health and well being of all Americans is now in full swing.
John Vazzara also owns
stock in, as well as provided seed money to start, SteelCloud Inc. (formerly
Dunn Computer Corporation). SteelCloud is a defense contractor with lucrative
deals with the Department
of Defense, recently landing
a 3.4 million dollar contract with the Department of Homeland Security.
Congress should investigate the financial ties and backroom dealings that would
allow this bizarre food additive approval by the FDA.
Of course, we will need new wonder drugs to combat the new bio-tech produced
infections. Americans will stay sick and the sickness-driven bio-tech industry
will flourish. The bio-tech industry will make people sick on the front end
and treat them on the back end. It’s a win-win situation for profit on
The FDA is Rapidly Becoming a Public Enemy
Experimenting with viruses being added to the food supply is incredibly dangerous
and reckless. It is completely impossible for the FDA to guarantee safety in
the near term or the long term. Thus, the FDA has made the bureaucratic decision
that relative safety is acceptable to them. What right does the FDA have to
tamper with the food supply in this manner?
It is quite clear that the Bush agenda has been to promote American biotech
companies as the new future for American prosperity. Administrative opinions
have trumped science in virtually every situation wherein safety conflicts with
profit. The FDA acts to foster profits for biotech companies and the growth
of the biotech industry. This is a betrayal of the public trust.
The leaders of the FDA are personally responsible and need to be held accountable.
This means Andrew von Eschenbach, M.D., temporary head of the FDA and his chief
science officer, Scott Gottlieb, M.D. These men are not only obsessed
with approving risky drugs for the benefits of Big Pharma, it is now clear
that they are willing to allow obvious adulteration of the food supply. They
seek to control what we eat, and they are tampering with survival of the human
The FDA does not truly know how safe viral phages are to consume on a regular
basis. They have no idea of the cumulative effect over the course of a lifetime,
especially as more of these viral cocktails are added to the food supply. They
have no way to measure how this new type of adulteration in the food supply
will interact with the poor digestive/immune health of half the American population,
in combination with all the other serious adulterations already approved by
the FDA. The FDA lacks due diligence in honoring its mandate to protect the
Boycott Viral Tainted Foods, Support Your Sustainable Farmers
The only hope Americans have is to resurrect the quality of our food supply.
Doing so is against the odds, as there are billions of dollars of profit-mongering
taking our food supply in the wrong direction. One day Americans will realize
that food security is as important to national security as any other topic.
It is now crystal clear that we cannot count on the FDA to do the job that Harvey
Wiley, M.D., envisioned
one-hundred years ago.
Consumers standing in line to buy a luncheon meat sandwich will have no idea
if they are ingesting live viruses as part of their meal. While the FDA will
require the ingredient to be listed on packages as “bacteriophage preparation,”
most consumers will have no idea that means they are ingesting live viruses.
Foods bought at deli counters or prepared in restaurants will not need to warn
How can any responsible parent feed virus-tainted food to their children? The
FDA should be forced to revoke this approval. Every American has an obligation
to support food security for our nation. Congress must correct the leadership
at the FDA and the FDA itself. Americans must quit buying poor quality toxic
food. Your greatest ability to change this problem is based entirely on what
Get connected to the sustainable family farms in your community. Buy meat that
is range raised without antibiotics and synthetic growth hormones. Demand that
the food you are eating is labeled with a country of origin. Buy American; buy
locally-produced food whenever possible. Support those who truly believe in being
the stewards of our land and food for our people and for future generations. These
good people are being squashed out of existence by multi-national agribusiness,
companies that could truly care less about the quality of our food supply or the
security and health of Americans. How you spend your money is your most powerful
vote. Vote for those who care.
