Xenotransplantation – Creating The Zombie Apocalypse

The following information is based solely on fact and sourced within.

This essay is an addendum to my documentary film, “Lethal Injection: The Story Of Vaccination“. It is of utmost importance that you read this entire article and spread it indefatigably.

What you are about to read may very well be the largest combined cover-up of the confederated government, ranching, meat-packing, medical, and pharmaceutical industry’s history – a collaborative effort to hide the true nature of what can only be called the human race’s modern plague of neurological and other degenerative diseases, from Alzheimer’s to AIDS.

This is not about the dead coming back to life. On the contrary, death is the only sweet release from this disease… a final cure that is always certain, and which never comes soon enough.

This is the real story of an apocalyptic peril that, as it turns out, very likely already lies dormant in us all.

This is not a zombie genre fiction, but is instead the real-life story of what are called “prions“.

The following essay affects anyone and everyone who may be reading this, without exception. This research is not an attempt to scare you or to promote science fiction. It is instead my personal attempt to save the world; to warn the entire planet of what “zombie” fans and fanatics could only before both dream about and dread, and in the end offer what I believe with all of my soul to potentially be the proverbial cure and end of prion-related diseases for ever.

But I digress… for most people – including many nurses and doctors – have never even heard of a prion, let alone considered them as the cause of such conditions that I now believe to be purposefully and falsely diagnosed as Alzheimer’s, Lou Gehrig’s Disease (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis – ALS), Parkinson’s Disease, and many other debilitating conditions that most medical “professionals” will to this day admit – they do not know the cause of!

Dismiss this information at your own peril…

Or embrace it and fight for your life and your right to live it well!

What Is A Zombie?
–≈–

Sorry folks, but you’ll have to come down to Earth for this presentation! Please place all pre-conceived notions securely in the overhead bins and place all tray-tables in their upright and locked positions. It’s time to get real…

For the purposes of this essay, the term “zombie” is defined by the World English Dictionary as:

1. a person who is or appears to be lifeless, apathetic, ortotally lacking in independent judgment; automation

And by Dictionary.com as:

2. Informal. a. a person whose behavior or responses arewooden, listless, or seemingly roteautomaton. b. an eccentric or peculiar person.

And Wikipedia gives this alternative description:

The term (zombie) is often figuratively applied to describe a hypnotized person bereft of consciousness and self-awarenessyet ambulant and able to respond to surrounding stimuli.

With the following descriptions in mind, and the Hollywood death worship, gore, and fanfare safely tucked away, we can now safely proceed with what I feel may be some of the most important information you may read in your lifetime.

And anyone who knows of me, certainly knows that I don’t say something like this lightly…

Cannibalism As Medicine
–≈–

The virtually unknown and under-discussed scientific and medical topic of what is called “xenotransplantation“, as well as human protein ingestion – including injection (vaccination) of other animals and human cells into the human body – is now a practice as prevalent as the consumption of aspirin. From flavor enhancers labeled as “natural ingredients” or “natural flavors” to oral and inject-able pharmaceutical drugs ranging from insulin to human growth hormone to anti-blood clotting drugs to seasonal vaccines, the human race has unsuspectingly been transformed into a species that consumes itself “for medicinal purposes“.

Be it consumed orally, injected (vaccinated) through the skin to bypass the body’s natural defenses, or purposefully “xeno”-transplanted via surgical procedure, the deadly zombie-creating prion we are about to expose is officially undetectable, ineradicable, untreatable, irreversibly fatal, and unless good people take immediate action and demand public exposure and immediate research, unstoppable!!!

There is a distinct difference between animal and human consumption, both in application and in function. But the dangers in both cases are equally deadly – as in always deadly, without exception, meaning 100% fatal! The reasons for this fact will become inescapably apparent and self-evident as we read on…

What is Xenotransplantation?
–≈–

The FDA explains Xenotransplantation as:

Xenotransplantation is any procedure that involves the transplantation, implantation or infusion into a human recipient of either (a) live cells, tissues, or organs from a nonhuman animal source, or (b) human body fluids, cells, tissues or organs that have had ex vivo contact with live nonhuman animal cells, tissues or organs. The development of xenotransplantation is, in part, driven by the fact that the demand for human organs for clinical transplantation far exceeds the supply.

Currently ten patients die each day in the United States while on the waiting list to receive lifesaving vital organ transplants. Moreover, recent evidence has suggested that transplantation of cells and tissues may be therapeutic for certain diseases such as neurodegenerative disorders and diabetes, where, again human materials are not usually available.

Although the potential benefits are considerable, the use of xenotransplantation raises concerns regarding the potential infection of recipients with both recognized and unrecognized infectious agents and the possible subsequent transmission to their close contacts and into the general human population. Of public health concern is the potential for cross-species infection by retroviruses, which may be latent and lead to disease years after infection. Moreover, new infectious agentsmay not be readily identifiable with current techniques.

The FDA also has this information page regarding xenotransplantation:

Information and recommendations for Physicians Involved in the Co-Culture of Human Embryos with Non-Human Animal Cells

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) wants you to know that the co-culture of human embryos with nonhuman animal cells raises health concerns for the recipients of such embryos, the offspring resulting from such embryos, and the general public. The use of nonhuman animal cells, tissues or organs in the treatment of human medical conditions is called xenotransplantation…

Co-culture of human embryos with nonhuman animal cells fits the second part of this definition (xenotransplantation, defined above). During co-culturing, human embryos and nonhuman animal cells are maintained together outside the body, in ex vivo contact. Thus, the woman into whom the co-cultured embryos are transferred is a recipient of a xenotransplantation product.

A serious concern regarding the clinical use of xenotransplantation is the potential for the transmission of infectious disease from nonhuman animals to humans.Scientists believe that the potential for transmission of an infectious disease from the animal source to a human is of concern either when live nonhuman animal cells, tissues or organs are implanted directly into a human, or when human cells are exposed to live nonhuman animal cells by ex vivocontact. Experience with organ allotransplantation has shown that diseases such as human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection, Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, hepatitis B virus infection and hepatitis C virus infection can be transmitted from the human donor to the recipient. Similarly, xenotransplantation poses concerns for infection with recognized, or as yet unrecognized, infectious agents from nonhuman animals.These concerns may extend beyond the recipient to the general public because of the potential for subsequent transmission of an infectious agent to the recipient’s contacts and to the general population. Infections originating from animals that have been known to infect and be transmitted from human to human include, for example, HIV and swine influenza. Many viruses exhibit latency, so that the lack of symptoms at the time of the embryo transfer, or in the short term, does not alleviate all concern.

The U.S. Public Health Service has published guidelines on infectious disease issues in xenotransplantation.  These guidelines, as well as FDA guidance documents, can be found at the website http://www.fda.gov/cber/xap/xap.htm, or obtained from FDA. They recommend, for example, that:

  • You should inform recipients of xenotransplantation products that they and their intimate contacts should defer from donation of blood and other tissues.
  • You should inform patients that they have been treated with a xenotransplantation product and of the risks involved.
  • You should archive patient samples, such as blood, to allow future monitoring for potential infections.
  • You should follow patients for their lifetimes and counsel them to be alert to any unusual symptoms.
  • You should archive samples of the xenotransplantation product. In this case, the nonhuman animal cells used for the co-culture process should be archived.

We would be happy to discuss any questions you might have about these recommendations. The nature and level of our concerns may vary depending on the species of nonhuman animal used in the co-culture technique and the source of the culture cells. We plan to have further public discussion of this topic with an appropriate federal advisory committee. At this time, FDA plans to enforce investigation new drug application (IND) requirements for investigations involving further production of embryos co-cultured with live nonhuman animal cells. However, currently it is not our intent to take enforcement action based on the transfer of already existing embryos created by co-culture with live nonhuman animal cells.

Has anybody considered that the growing of human body parts on animals is a gateway for new and more dangerous mutation of prion development and transmission? After all, the animal circulatory system will be directly fused during growth, and transferred during xenotransplantation into or onto the human host.

In my film, “Lethal Injection: The Story Of Vaccination”, I covered in great detail the disturbing fact that cloned DNA from human aborted fetuses and other animal proteins are used in the production of vaccines and in the growth of cell substrates for vaccine cell growth (free to view on YouTube, –> here). Some viewers mistook this information as an attempt to promote a “pro-life” political standpoint, indeed missing the very real point that we are literally being forced into eating, injecting, and applying as cosmetics ourselves (other humans) with our unborn aborted children in the name of “medical science” and “beauty”. Thus, to say that “Soylent Green is people” is truly an understatement in modern medicine, food, and cosmetics. Indeed, everything is a choice.

Before we proceed, we must understand exactly what it is that gets directly injected into the human body via the vaccination process. Here is an incomplete list of human and non-human animal proteins and ingredients that are used in the vaccine and other inject-able drug markets. Note that these are listed as “ingredients” of different vaccines:

-residual MRC5 proteins – human diploid cells from aborted fetal tissue – including DNA and proteins
-human albumin, albumin from human blood
-sucrose human albumin
-chicken embryo
-chick embryonic fluid
-chicken protein
-monkey kidney cells
-phenol red rhesus monkey fetal lung cells
-rhesus monkey fetal diploid cells
-rhesus monkey rotavirus
-3 rhesus-human reassortant live viruses
-guinea pig embryo cells
-mouse serum proteins
-gelatin (collogen – animal proteins, especially flesh and connective tissues. Aborted human fetal material also used in cosmetics)
-lactose (animal milk derived – also added to pills as a cheap “filler”)
-vesicle fluid from calf skins
-calf serum
-bovine fetal serum
-bovine extract, US sourced
-bovine gelatin and serum “from source countries known to be free of bovine spongioform encephalopathy” (Note: this is an impossible claim to prove.)
-Mycobacterium bovis
-polysaccharide from Salmonella typhi Ty2 strain
-recombinant protein (OspA) from the outer surface of the spirochete Borrelia burgdorferi kanamycin – a tick-borne pathogen that causes Lyme disease

These human and other animal proteins are all but impossible to filter out of the final inject-able product (vaccines), and are being introduced at an alarming rate into the human and animal population of the world with the advent of the popularity and profit-potential of vaccination on a world (United Nations) scale. While the moral implications of this barbarous and unethical practice are more than obvious and should seemingly be enough to defeat the ego when choosing whether or not to vaccinate ones self or ones children, there is a much more sinister and unknown danger in this practice that needs a bit of light shown upon it…

Introducing, the prion

–≈–
The Indefatigable Prion
–≈–

pri·on

noun \ˈprē-ˌän\ (Medical Dictionary)

Any of various infectious proteins that are abnormal forms of normal cellular proteins, that proliferate by inducing the normal protein to convert to the abnormal form, and that in mammals include pathogenic forms which arise sporadically, as a result of genetic mutation, or by transmission (as by ingestion of infected tissue) and which upon accumulation in the brain cause a prion disease.

prion

noun (Concise Encyclopedia)

Disease-causing agent, discovered by Stanley Prusiner, responsible for various fatal neurodegenerative diseases calledtransmissible spongiform encephalopathies. An abnormal form of a normally harmless protein found in mammals and birds, the disease-causing prion can enter the brain through infection, or it can arise from a mutation in the gene that encodes the proteinOnce present in the brain it causes normal proteins to refold into the abnormal shape. As prion proteins multiply, they accumulate within nerve cells, destroying them and eventually causing brain tissue to become riddled with holes. Diseases caused by prions includeCreutzfeldt-Jakob disease, mad cow disease, and scrapie.Prions are unlike all other known disease-causing organisms in that they appear to lack nucleic acid (DNA or RNA).

Deadly Feasts
–≈–

I am seldom one to promote a book or movie, and yet I feel compelled to share this one with you – a 15 year old warning that has gone unheeded by the corporate and government profit machine, ignored by the media and medical community and as a result the conditioned and ignorant people, and brushed aside out of public view in an effort led by the WHO and the U.S. FDA and CDC.

Deadly Feasts: Tracking The Secrets Of A Terrifying New Plague” was written and researched by Pulitzer prize winning author and researcher Richard Rhodes, published in 1997. I recomend that this book be on your “to read” list, if only to understand what is potentially the worst continuing outbreak of avoidable, man-induced disease in the history of the world.

If you’ve ever been vaccinated or eaten any type of meat or dairy products, you should really pay attention here…

The Introduction to the book, entitled “To The Reader”, states:

“The threat of Ebola virus has haunted our nightmares since Richard Preston published his “terrifying true story” The Hot Zone in 1994. Ebola hides in the African rain forest, but a deadlier disease than Ebola has begun killing young people in Britain and France. Ebola is a terrorist: it sickens people quickly and spares at least one out of ten. The new disease is a stealth agent: it incubates silently for years and kills every last victim it infects. Ebola is a sickness of fever and bleeding, no worse than cholera, a quick if not a merciful death. The new disease is an atrocity of destruction – a headache, a stumble, and then hallucination, palsy, seizure and coma drawn out horribly for monthsVictims’ brains go spongy; their minds dim; they lose the ability to walk, to talk, to see, to swallow; they die slowly, drowning in pneumonia, or they starve to death.

Ebola can survive outside of the body for a few days at best. Sunlight kills it. Ultraviolet light kills it. The new disease agent refuses to die. Assault with pressurized, superheated steam in the autoclaves that hospitals use to sterilize instruments for surgery barely slows it. It remains deadly after hours of intense bombardment with hard radiation, months of soaking in formaldehyde, years of burial, decades of freezing. It survives even the fiery furnace of a seven-hundred-degree oven.

How Ebola spreads is still uncertain, but scientists know it’s a virus. In time, a vaccine will protect us from its threat(author’s note: I disagree with this vaccine statement, as is self evident in my film and research). The new disease turns up no virus in victims’ brains. It creeps past the barriers of species and immunity. Evidence accumulates that it’s a bad seed, a mistake of protein, a misshapen crystal that forces the brain to poison itself. If so, it’s a new kind of disease agent that can never be eradicated.

How the new disease spreads is known: it spreads in the cannibalism of animals by animals, it spreads in the industrial cannibalism of animal remains fed to animalsit spreads by the eating of beef…”

Deadly Feasts then discusses the cannibalistic rituals of the Fore tribal people who lived in New Guinea. More specifically, the “revenge” of the female members of the tribes who consumed (ate) the parts of their husbands and menfolk together with vigor and ritualistic joy – the result of the less than loving matrimonial customs of the Fore people. Each internal organ was extracted with care and precision, and then served with various plant sides, sweet potatoes, and other forest condiments.

A tradition that was started by the women of the tribes in the 1930′s, this cannibalism resulted in mass outbreaks of disease locally called “Kuru”. Kuru was thought by the women of the Fore tribes to be nothing short of witchcraft by the menfolk, whom were thought of as “sorcerers” in many Fore tribes. The native word “Kuru” literally meant shivering- in cold or from fear. And once the sorcery of Kuru took hold, the “bewitchment” would, without exception, lead to death.

Kuru’s symptoms are described as if taken straight of Night Of The Living Dead:

The symptoms of Kuru are broken down into three specific stages. The first, ambulant stage, exhibits unsteady stance and gait, decreased muscle control, tremors, deterioration of speech and dysarthria (slurred speech). In the second stage, sedentary stage, the patient is incapable of walking without support, suffers ataxia (loss of muscle coordination) and severe tremors. Furthermore, the victim is emotionally unstable, depressed, yet having uncontrolled sporadic laughter. Interestingly, the tendon reflexes are still normal at this point. In the final, terminal stage, the patient is incapable of sitting without support, suffers severe ataxia (no muscle coordination), is unable to speak, is incontinent (unable to restrain natural discharges/evacuations of urine or feces), has dysphagia (difficulty swallowing), is unresponsive to their surroundings, and acquires ulcerations (sores with pus and necrosis). An infected person usually dies within 3 months to 2 years after the first symptoms, often because of pneumonia or pressure sores infection.

Please note that the symptom called “necrosis” is defined as:

Necrosis: The death of living cells or tissues. Necrosis can be due, for example, to ischemia (lack of blood flow). From the Greek “nekros” meaning dead body.

Now, despite the fact that the hairs on your back of your neck may be standing up in fibrous nervousness about now, we haven’t yet begun to uncover the zombification of the world yet.

Deadly Feasts” begins its story in Papa New Guinea with the true story of cannibalism and its cost:

“Men lived separately from the women and children, following their wives into their gardens to copulate, sharing the big men’s lodge with the older boys. Men believed contact with women weakened them. They resented the fecundity of women. Men seldom ate the dead and then only the red meat, surreptitiously…”

“The women at their mortuary feast butchered and cooked down in the garden, but they ate in private, carrying the steaming bamboo tubes back to their separate woman’s houses, sharing the feast with their children…”

“They ate every part of the body, even the bones, which they charred at the open fires to soften them before crumbling them into the (bamboo shoot) tubes. The dead woman’s brother’s wife received the vulva as her special portion. If the dead had been a man, his penis, a delicacy, would have gone to his wife…”

“Eating the dead was not a primordial Fore custom. it had started within the lifetime of the oldest grandmothers among them, at the turn of the century (1900) or not long before…”

“Women bewitched with Kuru staggered to walk, walked with a stick and then could no longer walk at all. Before losing the ability to swallow they got fat and the flesh of those who died early of pneumonia was rich meat…”

“Nevertheless, the damage Kuru caused to the brain was similar to the damage caused by the rare condition known asCreutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD).

Towards the end of the book, Mr. Rhodes discusses the phenomenon and likely scientific folly of xenotransplantation in an interview with Dr. David White, the cofounder and medical director of a company called Imutran:

“Pioneer xenotransplantation has already begun: in 1984 in the U.S., a baboon heart kept Baby Fae alive for twenty days: a baboon liver was transplanted in 1994; San Francisco AIDS patient Jeff Getty received a baboon-marrow graft in 1995 to shore up his immune system. Advanced biotechnology that may make xenotransplantation routine is under development in the United States and in Britain. Lines of transgenic pigs are being bred for use initially for hearty transplants. Pig blood types are more like human types than those of other animals, but a strong immune response known as hyperacute rejection normally destroys pig tissue grafted into primates in a matter of hours.

I investigated Imutran, a company based in Cambridge, England, that leads the world in xenotransplantation technology, and learned that it has cloned human genes that defeat hyperacute rejection and inserted them into pig embryos.  Imultran has bred hundreds of pigs carrying these human genes. Rejection of transgenic pig hearts still has to be controlled with drugs, just as rejection of transplanted human hearts has to be controlled with drugs. In 1995, Imutran demonstrated that even without such immunosuppressive drugs, monkeys implanted with its transgenic pig hearts survived for five days – well past the time when hyperacute rejection would have destroyed an ordinary pig-heart implant. Implanted monkeys treated with immunosuppressive drugs survived up to sixty days. That achievement led Dr. David White, Imutran’s cofounder and medical director, to predict routine pig-heart transplants in humans before the turn of the century. “The big debate now,” White told the media, “is, do we currently have the skills to keep the hearts functioning in people for a long time; and the only way to answer that question is to put them into people and find out.”

I interviewed White at Imutran’s headquarters in Cambridge in April 1996. He was enthusiastic about his work. “Right from the beginning,” he explained, “our approach was to ask how can we genetically engineer the pig, not how can we treat the patient. From there, we realized that a possible approach would be to put these human regulators into a pig. And the smartest thing I ever did was to take out a patent on the process. Because that’s what pays all the bills.” Although I didn’t know it at the time, White had just sold Imutran to Sandoz Pharma, Ltd., a major drug company.

I will put my career on the line,” he told me, “and say that hyperacute rejection as we know it is dead, gone, finished. You take an organ from one of our pigs and transplant it into a primate and it will go for days without any treatment at all, routinely. We’ve done kidneys, islets [i.e. pancreatic tissue which secretes insulin, to correct diabetes], hearts – I don’t even know the number now, sixty or seventy. Now all we have to do is immunosuppress the monkey in order to achieve long-term survival. We did our first baboon transplant a couple of weeks ago, and on the same day that we successfully transplanted a baboon with a pig heart, one of our patients died waiting for a human heart.”

I came to the point of my visit: “Are you concerned with BSE?”

***Note that BSE stands for bovine spongiform encephalopathy (i.e. Mad Cow Disease).

“Fortunately,” White countered, “pigs don’t get BSE.”

I think there’s evidence they do.”

If you take contaminated brain from a mad cow andinject (vaccinate) the neural tissue directly into the brain of the pig it will get spongiform encephalopathy. But they’ve been feeding infected brain to pigs for five years no and none of the pigs has the disease.”

That was true.

“You have to appreciate that BSE is not an infection. It’s a very curious toxicity really.”

I told Dr. White I’d looked into it.

“Well,” he responded, “then perhaps you can tell me how the hell the bloody thing works. I don’t understand it.”

I tried to explain abnormal protein crystallization (caused by prions).

He listened. “Yes, that could work,” he said finally.

“Your pigs are isolated and presumably not fed meat-and-bone meal,” I prompted him.

“Oh no,” he confirmed. “Disease transmission is an area of considerable concern.” He left his desk and returned with a proprietary study as thick as a telephone book. “We put together a group of the world’s leading experts on pig disease and on the diseases that transplant patients get.” He opened the book. “I’ll just read you some of the headings. ‘Microorganisms Known To Be Pathogenic.’ ‘Microorganisms Pathogenic In Humans.’ ‘Microorganisms Known To Be Pathogenic In Pigs Bt Not Pathogenic In Humans.’ Microorganisms Not Known To Be Pathogenic But Similar To Microorganisms Pathogenic.” And so on. Porcine RNA viruses, porcine DNA viruses, exotic porcine RNA viruses, exotic porcine DNA viruses, a special section on the human measles viruses. Porcine bacteria – the gram negatives, the gram positives – and it goes on and on. A basic risk assessment of them all. A list of pathogens of most concern.” He closed the book. “So when you’ve done all that, you’re left with one problem, which is the retroviruses. We’re currently doing research on our primates to answer the question, will these pig retroviruses jump across the species barrier and recombine with human retroviruses? We haven’t finished, but we think the probability is extremely remote.”

***Author’s note: In my film Lethal Injection: The Story of Vaccination, we see various patents for using Porcine Zona Pellucida (pig ovaries) as inject-able vaccination birth control methods, for use in both animals and humans. The foreign ovary proteins cause an “immune response” in the vaccinated patient and the body’s natural defenses develop “antibodies” inadvertently for the body’s own (human) reproductive functions, while attempting to fight the foreign reproductive ovary or other proteins. This is but one example of xenotransplantation designed to control population growth in animals and humans…

“The pigs wont go to the hospital, White continued, The patient will come somewhere near the pigs. “That is,” he explained, “you will have a few dedicated specialist centers which do xenotransplantation. Those centers will have a sterile pig-production unit nearby. The patients will come there. It is ludicrous that you have to wait for fit, healthy people to die so that you can treat sick people. With a pig, you can come in and the physician will say, ‘I think you’re going to need a heart transplant. ‘You wouldn’t be at the end of the road. Maybe three months, maybe six months away. And we would modify yourimmune system so that you won’t reject pigs.

It occurred to me that we might be talking about more than hearts. “Are you planning to transplant other organs and tissues from the pig?”

“The heart, the lungs – all those former smokers, the market is huge – the kidney. Possibly the intestine. The substantia nigra is an area of great interest.”

I said: “What?”

“Bit of the brain,” White said. “For the treatment of Parkinson’s disease.”

I knew what substantia nigra was, I just couldn’t believe that a brilliant and innovative physician-businessman who had admitted he didn’t understand what causes spongiform encephalopathy (who does?) was planning to implant pig brain directly into the brains of humans.

In July of 1996, the Committee on Xenograft Transplantation of the U.S. Institute of Medicine, part of the National Academy of Sciences, endorsed xenografting on the grounds that the potential benefits outweigh the risks. “When the science base for specific types of xenotransplants is judged sufficient,” the committee concluded, “and the appropriate safeguards are in place, well-chosen human xenotransplantation trials using animal cells, tissues and organs would be justified and should proceed.” The committee cited “ample evidence,” however, that infectious agents could be transmitted from animals to humans, which indicated a danger “unequivocally greater than zero” that xenotransplantation could transfer new and deadly viruses across the species barrier. And it specifically mentioned transmissible spongiform encephalopathy (Mad Cow Disease).
