Scientists Just Created a Dangerous New Form of SARS

| |

sars virus wikimedia

It’s been well over a decade since the SARS virus captured the attention of the world, and very nearly devastated the global population. Between 2002 and 2003, the virus managed to infect over 8000 people across 37 countries, nearly 10% of who were killed before the outbreak was fully contained. Now scientists have created a highly potent hybrid of the virus which has since been dubbed “SARS 2.0.”

The new strain is very similar to SARS, but is modified to be more contagious for humans. Essentially, it is a mix between a type of SARS that infects mice, and a new form of SARS that was recently found in Chinese horseshoe bats, called “SHC014.” The scientists who created the hybrid wanted to study this emerging virus, since they know it carries the potential to devastate human populations. According to Dr. Ralph Baric of the University of North Carolina, “The strain grew equally well to SARS in human cells,” and “It resisted all vaccines and immunotherapy, too.”

However, critics say that it is too risky to create these viruses, even if it’s in the relative safety of a laboratory. According to French virologist Simon Wain-Hobson, this hybrid strain “grows remarkably well” in human cells, and “if the virus escaped, nobody could predict the trajectory.” Wain-Hobson claims that SHC014 would still need to evolve before making the leap to humans, which may never occur. In other words, these scientists are trying to create a virus that could kill people and spread across the planet, so that they can study a virus that may or may not do the same.

    How about working on cures instead of creating death?

    • NonYo Business

      My thoughts too. Maybe thats how they will solve the starvation problem. Less mouths.

      • Guillotine_ready

        The starvation problem has always been about how the land is used, and who owns the land. There is plenty of land to grow enough food for a lot more people than we have, but there is no will to do so.
        They have come out and said they want to reduce the world’s population to a more manageable level. Our job is to make sure they do not succeed.

        • reduce the pretend gov’t to a manageable level, about zero. then re-instate the Republic

      No profit in cures.

  • Viruses do not grow. They use the reproductive equipment in the cells that they infect to produce more of themselves. The primary difference between viruses that infect human cells and those that do not are related to their ability to get into the cells. Their growth rate is based on the capability of the infected cell to reproduce the infecting virus.

      liposomal vitamin C, ozone.

      • What about them?

        • bsroon

          Kill the stuffing out of the buggers. Oregon grape roots and more are anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, and anti-viral, as is Neem in tea or capsule form. The oil is for topical application only.
          i’ve had some herring i REALLY shouldn’t have had – and was pretty intestinally “intense” and then i recalled my neem capsules. Literally within 2 minutes of the capsule and a swallow or 2 of water – NO stomach pain or upset – and i know of those who’ve had 3 day old food poisoning, heading to the ER for saline solution who drank the tea and within literally 2-3 minutes were feeling intestinally fine.

          Ozone, in the right dosage, correct delivery kills any fungus, bacteria, or virus virtually on contact. Liposomal Vitamin C is the only thing (at i recall 15ppm) that the army found to prevent Ebola.

          • Ozone is a very powerful oxidizer in any dose, and is very similar to chemotherapy, potentially causing as much damage as the toxins produced by pathogens unto death. Anything that you can’t take internally is unlikely to do anywhere near as much good as a topical, unless you are treating a skin problem. Oil of oregano (especially from North American Herb & Spice) is among the best choices to use internally, as long as they are acceptable for that modality. Young Living has a large number of internally applicable essential oils and is well regarded for their thieves oil products. Properly applied, photoluminescence can take out HIV, ebola, and other viruses that are supposed to be impossible to eradicate. If you don’t want to find a competent clinician to apply photoluminescence, you’d be much better off to experiment with externally applied electrotherapy, with works the same way, and is much cheaper. You can even build your own instruments.

          • bsroon

            Ozone in reasonably controlled application is incredibly effective. i remember some people talking about taking their father into Dr Wm Douglas’s offices in Georgia. He was gray, in a wheelchair, with oxygen, and having extreme difficulty breathing. His meds no longer worked and he was drowning in the bacterial discharge of the buggers in his lungs.
            Dr Douglas pulled a unit of blood and bubbled ozone through it at (if i recall right) 6ppm, then put the unit of blood back into the man. As he walked out the door, he paused and said that “Oh, you’re going to start coughing and clearing out lung fluids in about 10 minutes.” Then he went on to other patients.

            In 10 minutes the man started coughing his lungs out – like his meds USED to make him do. He kept up the treatments for months of course, and was freed of whatever his specific diagnosis had been.

            i’ve also seen vids of people in Mexico that looked like they had potatoes growing off their cheeks from a very aggressive skin cancer. They injected ozone into the tumor itself, and it shrank until it fell away in about two weeks and left a tiny little scar on his right cheekbone.

            It must be used right – like anything. i’d not mind getting in a hyperbaric oxygen chamber with a low percentage of ozone it it and then follow that up with plain HBO therapy a few times…..

          • Do you know the difference between oxygen and ozone?

          • bsroon

            Ozone is always O3 in nature, although in the lab it has been created up to O14 i hear. It has a weakly held valence bond to the standard O2 molecule making up that O3 molecule.
            It is formed by UV in roughly the 100+ to almost 400 nanometer range.

          • The key is that it is an oxygen molecule, and that the only constantly existing oxygen molecule is O2. O3 is a short-lived variant which is extremely mutagenic and oxidative, which is difficult to manage for good. Hyperbaric chambers accomplish more with O2 while limiting the inherent dangers of O3. The easiest way to create O3 is through electric sparking, although impurities are also created in anything but a pure O2 atmosphere. If you want to inhale O3, run your vacuum cleaner and breathe deeply.

          • bsroon

            i have an ozone machine in my house – have for years. Used to have an Alpine – they changed their name and i have the newer version. It is great for clearing out nasty lung stuff – like if i snored and the abraded part starts to want to drip gunk into the bronchials – this gets rid of that no problem.

            My son smokes. When his room gets odiferous he uses the ozone machine in there and it smells fresh in one day. If he uses it at night it makes him cough up tar and stuff from his lungs…..

            i’ve washed out oil based paints from brushes and had my latex/nitrile glove split without knowing it. So – mineral spirits reeking all over my right hand. i turned the fan down, the ozone level up, and held my hand in front of the ozone machine for two minutes – no smell.

            i lent it to a woman whose concrete basement was the victim of a bad shut-off valve on a fuel oil truck. It put 5″ of fuel oil up her walls. i loaned the machine to her, she ran it for 3 weeks – no smell.

            Ozone breaks down lots of toxins, volatile oils, fungi, bacteria, viruses, etc. Intelligent societies use it as part of a well rounded cancer “fighting” regimen.

          • Everything you say is true of all oxidizers, but not all of them can be safely used in vivo.

          • bsroon

            Of course you can’t use them unsafely and expect safe results. That’s why IN THE CORRECT DOSAGE WITH THE CORRECT DELIVERY there is benefit from ozone therapy AND from H2O2 therapy.

            Both have been and are being used safely, and my ozone machine is one of those techniques AND makes my house much safer. Our house is one tiny ridge tail, and less than 200 feet from a commercial pear orchard – and when they spray in the spring especially – the ozone machine makes the air in the house safe. The outside may reek – but inside the house there is no ag poison smell whatsoever.

            Same holds true if your neighbor (or heaven forbid, yourself) is idiot enough to use roundup on their yard, or wasp spray, or insecticide, or those damn roof fresheners with their “don’t breathe for an hour, don’t spray on plastics” because it’ll melt them and kill you toxins.

          • The point I was trying to make is that there are some oxidizers, and chemicals in general, that have no safe application in vivo.

          • bsroon

            i guess i may have read your suspicions regarding ozone because i simply intended to let you know that i’ve used ozone safely for years. i have also at times used food grade H2O2 to great effect. One time i beat restaurant food poisoning within hours of it’s getting intense with H2O2.
            Now i use Neem as it’s much faster. Takes literally about 2 minutes to have your stomach feel just fine.

          • I’ve used colloidal silver (which is really mostly ionic) for food poisoning. Silver is completely benign to all but pathogenic entities, and there is no LD-50, it being completely safe as long as it was made properly. Argyria is caused when contaminated water is used, forming silver compounds which are photosensitive, and turn blue upon exposure to light.

          • bsroon

            Do you make your own or do you buy yours? What sort of contamination are we talking here, because we have well water and likely some ag chem contamination?? Reasonably near the top of our watershed and it’s all BLM up there.
            Just thought: damb pot growers may be up there….

          • I make my own, using the purest water I can find, gauged by the conductivity and the rate at which the silver ions leave the respective electrode. Pure water is a pretty good insulator and most contaminates increase its conductivity. If I were going to consume well water, I’d either distill every drop, or have regular samples tested. Ag chemicals are more likely to harm you more than contaminated colloidal silver will, since argyria isn’t harmful, just annoyingly irreversible. Once you are blue, you will die blue.

          • bsroon

            i really need a retort, dammut. Just quick thought – do some of the ag chems get carried in the steam – i know some contaminates will, but not sure how volatile the ag chems are – if they are even there.

            This is pretty fascinating and desirable, of course. You are likely aware that some people found during the fake ebola scare that according to military tests that colloidal silver at 10ppm minimum was the only effective thing they’d found.

            Is there a youtube or other instruction available, because i’d like to try this, and from our conversation we are not geared to real instruction as much as an overview – and it sounds like you’re doing something similar to electroplating – but obviously getting the silver in the water instead of all on the anode.

          • Using a retort for distillation is an expensive way to do it. I have only owned one distiller, and it is the Waterwise 1600 Non-Electric Water Distiller. It is a high volume unit and I have never used it. It will pay for itself one day that the drinking water is unsafe. I drink and use water from a multiple filter water filter system, usually Primo.
            I have never quantified the ppm of what I make, but it is usually just short of where it turns black, and tastes metallic, so it is much stronger than 10ppm.
            I have forgotten more about colloidal silver than I remember. There are several excellent sources of information online. I recommend that you use because they are an aggregator rather than a search engine, and they use several of the best engines in proxy.
            Electroplating requires far more sophisticated chemistry than making colloidal silver does, and you wouldn’t want to consume any of it, most silver compounds being quite toxic.

          • bsroon

            Thanks on it as soon as i do some tractor stuff in the last daylight, lol.

          • The tractor stuff I used to do never stopped with daylight, unless I could let it. I’m waiting for economy to tank and take a bunch of truckers off the road before I consider doing the long haul again. I suspect your tractor stuff is more domestic.

          • bsroon

            White 2-60 Farm Boss – 2 for the price of one. 65 PTO hp. 4WD.
            Went out and front tire on the better one is flat! Dammut. Now i have to swap it out in the RAIN after i check the wiring at a friend’s place to see why the dryer isn’t drying. Might be a wire came loose from the 240…..

          • That is one tractor I can admit to being envious of your experience with. Maybe someday somebody will give me a chance to drive one of them. At least I wouldn’t need a CDL to do so.

          • bsroon

            Finding i am just loving the farm thing. It SO resonates in my heart. It’s hard, complicated, extremely involved, and quite expensive to try to get things running again. You’d likely guess i gave up on the old Internationals.
            They were old enough that they had the IH “Quick Hitch System” while Ford and Massey were fighting for patent rights on the 3-point hitch. My tractors have 3-pt – so i had to teach myself how to arc weld in order to change things over. Fun, and i don’t mean that sarcastically either. In process of turning the first shop bay into a low level metal working shop. Welder, cutting – eventually a forge so i can blacksmith again.

            Much of the early implements have levers and such that need smithing repair – and in many cases blacksmithing is faster and stronger. Punch a hole instead of drilling it. No significant lost metal, and the shoulders are reinforced….

            Our grain drill is so old that even though we have the owners manuals for the Minnesota/Moline drill, the assembly instruction get to the point where they show you whether to face the cups forward for tractors or backward for horses. They also show diagrams for 2, 4, and 6 horse hitches, lol. LOVE IT! It drills, but i need to do something more long-term for the seed chutes into the double disks that “drill” the seed to depth….

            You’d be welcome to stop by and play on the tractor if you’re ever in Lake County, but don’t know how to do that sort of thing without letting people who want to kill me show up – the vaxassination theology crowd, those fools that think GMOs are dandy AND safe! (rah-rah) the immigration pushers, the gun control nuts, etc.

          • Lake County where? I’m in Park County, Wyoming.
            Your style of agriculture is dear to the heart of very few here, but that may change, soon.

          • bsroon

            Ah – i am being Californicated. Looks like we have a much greater growing season than you folks up in that corner of Wyoming. You’d have to go with your climate. See what nature did before the white guys screwed it up – but don’t just look at it as hunter – gatherer in mindset. Herd animals? That means a variety of livestock is possible. You can grow hay to winter them, and might be able to grow some grains to supplement them.
            Root cellaring, and the old ways of preserving food – i know, i know – you really want to use that truckload of BHT that fell off in your yard, but try smoking, making sausages, salting, brining, canning, clamps, greenhouses and the old ways first, lol.
            At one point – with irrigation – Dad was running two horses on a couple acres of pasture across the road, and raising enough grain to feed 2 tons of it per month to his hogs, on about 16 acres.

            Pretty good climate for growing here – but you can have years where you get wet miserable weather for a month after frost-free date – early/mid may.

          • The Big Horn Basin is regarded as the tropical part of Wyoming, having more growing time and a better climate than most parts of the state. Those advantages are used, mostly, to grow alfalfa, sugar beets, and hay. I’ve been trying to get the energy engineers and the aggies together, so they could take the exhaust from clean burning natural gas-fuelled power plants and run it into 4 season greenhouses. This would dramatically improve the productivity of the plants and sequester the carbon dioxide at the same time, but one really has to wonder if anybody really wants to do either. Things will probably have to get much worse before anyone who can fix things will have an incentive to do so.

  • jim_robert

    It gets worse. Dr. Eric R. Pianka, at University of Texas lecture to fellow scientists, students and professors in 2006, invoking peak oil (the ugly stepchild of global warming) stated that 90% of the
    world’s population needed to be killed using a weaponized form of the Ebola virus. He stated that an airborne version of Ebola would be more effective than the HIV/AIDS virus has been because of the speed in which the victim dies.
    Pianka also spoke positively of the death the bird flu could bring, and spoke of the need to “Sterilize everyone on earth” at this lecture. (This is the same Mengele-like Pianka who has also stated “We’re no better than bacteria!” at one of his lectures. Meanwhile,
    Simon Ross, head of Population Matters, has stated “population shrinkage is the cheapest and surest contribution to sustainability that we know of. Fellow misanthrope Rob Hengeveld, in his book How Our Consumption Challenges the Planet, proposes reducing world population to 1 billion

    It’s all based on ignorant Malthusianism, which has never been proved. In fact, the one “experiment” that did look at this, the Julian Simon/Paul Ehrlich wager, came down decidedly in favour of the non-Malthusians. You see, friends, the human mind creates all sorts of solutions to human problems. For example, one cell phone replaces an old camera, CD player, phone, iPod and a host of other things. Remember the raw materials all those other things are made out of – now no longer needed.

      Rockefeller wants only 350,000,000 humans.

      Heck, that doesn’t even leave enough slaves to maintain their system!!! They’d BETTER get that “transhumanism” shyt going. (even though it will never work like intended)

      • If the Rockefeller’s were transhumanists, they wouldn’t need 10% of that, and they’d be mostly technologists.

        • bsroon

          i really have a hard time believing that transhumanism (as described by some) is going to work. It seems similar to vaccinations in that short circuiting the natural immune system to pump up the 2% antigen area of that system, while damaging the intestinal colony of probiotics where 80 – 90% of the immune system (and the thymus) functions is counterproductive.
          The human body is very well designed in my estimation and done so to levels far beyond what we can conceive of at this time. There is no way in which we as humans have tapped out our maximum abilities and so to change their whole game – to me – seems like a total throw of the dice.

          Technology always fails. My general motto is: i try to not be the worst part of anybody’s day.” My emergency, back-up motto is: “technology is great except when it sucks.”

  • jim_robert

    As Blaise Pascal once noted, once science is divorced from ethics,
    scientists will use their skills to pursue power,
    not truth

    The 1974 Club of Rome report titled, Mankind at the Turning Point stated, “The real enemy then, is humanity itself.” Their solution was simple – engineer a massive reduction in population and utterly change the socio-economic system through centralized planning via total government control. And yes, this does smack of being
    called “The Final Solution” to me, too. This “man is the enemy” was reiterated by the Club of Rome in 1993, as well, when they stated in their The First Global Revolution, downloadable at that “In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill….All these dangers are
    caused by human intervention, and it is only through changed attitudes and behavior that they can be overcome. The real enemy then, is humanity itself.”

    “We came up with the idea??” In other words, a conclusion had already been reached, and now they needed to create a “reason” to support their unsupported – and as Julian Simon provisionally demonstrated, possibly false – a priori assumptions. Do not try this technique in any school paper you may attempt, or you
    will be failed!

    As Robert Zubrin observed, to the warmers, “… each new life is unwelcome, each unregulated thought or act is a menace, every person is fundamentally the enemy of every other person, and each
    race or nation is the enemy of every other race or nation.” Perhaps it is put most clearly by the World Wildlife Fund Living Plant Report of 2012, which Lewis Page summarizes in the May 16, 2012 edition of the Register that “economic growth should be abandoned, (and) citizens of the world’s wealthy nations should prepare for poverty.” The rich, of course, are especially bad, as the Education for Sustainable Development Toolkit, by Rosalyn McKeown, found at tells us: “Generally, more highly educated people who have higher incomes, consume more resources
    than poorly educated people, who tend to have lower incomes. In this case, more education increases the threat to sustainability.” (Please note: Michelle Obama’s monthly uber luxe vacations are excluded, as are the lifestyles of the Hollywierd Learjet leftists) Of course, individual rights are verboten, given the Malthusian threat to the earth. As Harvey Ruvin, Vice-chair of International Committee for Local Environment Initiatives (ICLEI), a group that wants to impose the green agenda on everyone has noted, “Individual rights must
    take a back seat to the collective.” Pol Pot, move over. (Incidentally, theMalthusians might want to get a clue, as between 30 and 50 percent of all food produced globally, equivalent to two
    billion tons, is thrown away each year according to a recent report written by the UK-based Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IME), titled ‘Global Food; Waste Not, Want Not’, found at

    Of course, per the usually PC Time Magazine, the Malthusians are doubly wrong, as “…it turns out the world’s population isn’t growing nearly as fast as it once did. In fact, experts say the rate of population growth will continue to slow and that the total population will eventually — likely within our
    lifetimes — fall.”

    All this misses, of course, the simple dictum of Julian Simon: “The most important benefit of population size and growth is the increase it brings to the stock of useful knowledge. Minds matter economically as much as, or more than, hands or mouths.”

    This is the same Julian Simon that bet global coolers now global warming Paul Ehrlich and current-warmer-then-global cooler John Holdren that the price of chromium, copper, nickel, tin, and
    tungsten would go down, not up, by Sept. 29, 1990. In fact, all five
    commodities – which Ehrlich selected – went down by the targeted date. In Oct. 1990, Ehrlich mailed Julian Simon a check for $576.07 to settle the wager. No word if current unelected Obama science czar Holdren chipped in any dough or not. But – as the last
    refuge of scientific (or economic) scoundrels – of course, “this time will be different.” See
    for the Wikipedia summary of this wager.

    • bsroon

      Brilliant post. i mean – you actually READ and stuff, lol.

      No wonder you aren’t a “warmer”. (glad to see someone else using that phrase, lol. Hate it when “they” get to use false derogatory categorizations with impunity. Thus i call others “VAXASSINATION THEOLOGY” proponents – on the premise that mandatory and/or universal vaccination is proven to not be universally safe or effective. Thus, it is based on faith – which mandates a lack of proof – religious conviction, i.e. theology.)

      • Synagogueof Satan SUCKS

        I make my own colloidal silver. Shi yes, I know all about it. Here’s something interesting I find out. The AMA was created in 1910 by a Jew in order to turn a benevolent homeopathic healthcare into a money making allopathic one and there’s a quote from one if the Sanhedrins that goes something like this: … Go send your sons to be doctors and apothacaries do they may kill the christian”.

        • Yep + the infamous Flexnor Report. Rockefeller at the helm.

      • Viruses aren’t alive, having no metabolism of their own. Silver destroys the permeability of their lipid or protein coat, sealing them inside. Silver is harmful to any genetically-based organism which is pathological to mammals.
