Genetically Modified Mosquitoes in Philippines


I am kind of interested with this topic because i was really amazed with what the scientists came up to fight effing dengue since there is no medicine for this virus that is coming from female mosquitoes. I am sure you are wondering what the heck is this genetically modified mosquitoes so I am going to explain this with basic terms just as I know it.

Genetically modified mosquitoes are the newest breed of male mosquitoes. Do not ask me where or who invented this because I don't have any clue about that. It has the ability to make a female mosquito barren by the time they mate. This means that it might fight the number of population of female mosquitoes that might carry deadly viruses.

They are planning to breed genetically modified mosquitoes here in the Philippines but Greenpeace that is an environmental organization is not okay with the idea of it. This issue is indeed interesting and scary at the same time because this theory has not yet proven working.
