A breakthrough technology allows scientists to obtain DNA samples from the air. The new technology collects environmental DNA (eDNA) shed by animals and humans for identification. Previously used to study fish, animals and invasive species, eDNA now shows promise in fields such as infectious disease epidemiology and forensics.
Article by Ramon Tomey from Natural News.
Prior to the study, eDNA had been previously detected in water, soil and snow. However, Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) senior lecturer Dr. Elizabeth Clare wanted to know if it was possible to obtain eDNA from the air. She and her colleagues then undertook the research endeavor, with their findings being published in PeerJ on March 31.
To conduct their study, the researchers sucked the air from a room where mole rats had been kept and allowed to dig burrows, as well as air from the burrows themselves. The air was pumped through two ultra-fine filters. The researchers then searched for DNA material in the filters and sequenced these samples. As expected, they found naked mole rat DNA from the air in the burrows and the larger room.
In addition to mole rat DNA, the researchers also found human DNA in the room using the technology. They surmised that the human DNA came from those taking care of the naked mole rats, even though the human caretakers spent far less time in the room. The discovery of human DNA in the room surprised researchers, but they later said it revealed the technology’s sensitivity.
Clare remarked: “Here [in this study], we provide the first published evidence to show that animal eDNA can be collected from air, opening up further opportunities for investigating animal communities in hard to reach environments such as caves and burrows.”
Nevertheless, the senior university lecturer acknowledged the eDNA extraction technology’s limitation. It relies on sucking the air in an enclosed space and passing the air through a filter. As such, it may be harder to obtain DNA samples from a larger room because they will be heavily diluted, she explained. Clare also said that in an open space, “DNA may be mixed to a meaningless soup … [wherein] ‘everything is everywhere.’”
Different fields may find environmental DNA extraction technology useful
Clare remarked that eDNA extraction “opens up some interesting questions” about its use, namely in forensics and archaeology. If a criminal is suspected to have passed through a crime scene, the technology could be tapped to obtain human DNA in the area – with further analysis confirming their identity. The study elaborated: “Using air as the source may make it possible to recover forensic traces of recent activity, even when no physical traces (such as blood or hair) have been left.” (Related: Scientific group says fingerprint evidence in crimes is practically worthless.)
The technology can also be used to obtain DNA samples of long-dead mummies or skeletons, the study said. Extracting DNA from the air has been pitched as one of many advanced sequencing approaches to identify skeletal remains.
The researchers also proposed the use of eDNA to find out the mechanism of how airborne pathogens are transmitted, in line with the current pandemic. According to them, the technology can help determine the concentration of viral particles in an infectious dose and the distance over which these particles can be delivered. “Viral particles and RNA can be collected using a similar approach to the method we have suggested here. [With] refinement in regard to quantification of a specific target, it may be possible to better define and apply safety guidelines,” they wrote in the study.
Clare and her colleagues may have a point in endorsing the use of eDNA to determine the presence of Wuhan coronavirus particles in the air. According to the World Health Organization‘s (WHO) guidance released July 2020, airborne transmission is one of many ways people can contract COVID-19.
Examination of the physics of airflow and exhaled air suggests that normal breathing and talking results in the exhalation of respiratory droplets. These then evaporate and become microscopic aerosols less than five micrometers in size. “A susceptible person could inhale aerosols, and could become infected if the aerosols contain the virus in sufficient quantity to cause infection,” the WHO said.
The global health body initially looked at medical procedures that generated aerosols as a basis for this mode of transmission. But some studies that looked at healthcare workers taking care of COVID-19 patients with symptoms – with no aerosol-generating procedures performed – also detected viral RNA particles in air samples. The WHO added that outside of the medical context, COVID-19 “super-spreader events” occurred at indoor crowded spaces with inadequate ventilation such as gyms, churches and restaurants. The inadequate ventilation and close contact caused people to inhale virus-laden aerosols and contract the pathogen. (Related: Coronavirus found to linger in the air in crowded spaces.)

Big Pharma’s Five Major Minions that Everyone, Vaxxed or Unvaxxed, Must Oppose
This is not an “anti-vaxxer” article, per se. It’s a call for everyone to wake up to the nefarious motives behind vaccine mandates, booster shots, and condemnation of freedom.
The worst kept secret in world history SHOULD be that the unquenchable push for universal vaccinations against Covid-19 has little if anything to do with healthcare and everything to do with Big Pharma’s influence over the narrative. Unfortunately, that secret has stayed firmly hidden from the vast majority of people because of the five major minions working on behalf of Big Pharma.
What’s even worse is the fact that Big Pharma’s greed is merely a smokescreen to hide an even darker secret. We’ll tackle that later. First, let’s look at the public-facing ringleaders behind the vaccine push, namely Big Pharma. But before we get into their five major minions, it’s important to understand one thing. This is NOT just an article that speaks to the unvaccinated. Even those who believe in the safety and effectiveness of the vaccines must be made aware of agenda that’s at play.
Let’s start with some facts. The unvaccinated do NOT spread Covid-19 more rampantly than the vaccinated. Even Anthony Fauci acknowledged the viral load present in vaccinated people is just as high as in the unvaccinated. This fact alone should demolish the vaccine mandates as it demonstrates they have absolutely no effect on the spread of the disease. But wait! There’s definitely more.
This unhinged push to vaccinate everyone defies science. Those with natural immunity may actually have their stronger defenses against Covid-19 hampered by the introduction of the injections which fool the body into creating less-effective antibodies. Moreover, the push to vaccinate young people is completely bonkers. The recovery rate for those under the age of 20 is astronomical. Children neither contract, spread, nor succumb to Covid-19 in a statistically meaningful way. What they DO succumb to more often than Covid-19 are the adverse reactions to the vaccines, particularly boys.
All of this is known and accepted by the medical community, yet most Americans are still following the vaccinate-everybody script. It requires pure cognitive dissonance and an overabundant need for confirmation bias to make doctors and scientists willingly go along with the program. Yet, here we are and that should tell you something.
Before I get to the five major minions of of Big Pharma, I must make the plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our GivingFuel page or via PayPal. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Who does Big Pharma control? It starts with the obvious people, the ones who most Americans believe are actually behind this push. Our governments at all levels as well as governments around the world are not working with Big Pharma. They are working for Big Pharma. Some are proactive as direct recipients of cash. Others may oppose Big Pharma in spirit but would never speak out because they know anyone who does has no future in DC.
This may come as a shock to some, but it’s Big Pharma that drives the narrative and sets the agenda for the “experts” at the CDC, FDA, WHO, NIH, NIAID, and even non-medical government organizations.
Most believe it’s the other way around. They think that Big Pharma is beholden to the FDA for approval, but that’s not exactly the case. They need approval for a majority of their projects, but when it comes to the important ones such as the Covid injections, Big Pharma is calling the shots. They have the right people in the right places to push their machinations forward.
That’s not to say that everyone at the FDA is in on it. Big Pharma only needs a handful of friendlies planted in leadership in order to have their big wishes met. We have seen people quitting the FDA in recent weeks for this very reason. The same can be said about the other three- and five-letter agencies. Too many people in leadership have been bribed, bullied, or blackmailed into becoming occasional shills for the various Big Pharma corporations. Some have even been directly planted by Big Pharma. That’s the politics of healthcare and science that drives such things as Covid-19 “vaccines.”
