Something vaccine safety advocates have wondered about, and even questioned if it were possible, has been confirmed! It is the scientific engineering or genetic modification of viruses, especially influenza-like viruses, to make them lethal, more lethal, or transferrable between species. That Frankenstein-like quest has become public knowledge, and is being confronted by those who rightfully fear the consequences. One has to wonder if the so-called pandemic H1N1 Swine flu virus was a product of genetic engineering.
Back in October of 2013, the European Society for Virology [ESV] sent a 5-page letter  to the President of the European Commission with four cc’d copies to various EU Commission officials regarding the work of one particular research scientist, Ron Fouchier, about the H5N1 influenza virus and how the Fouchier group’s research “shows that a few mutations can render H5N1, an avian virus, transmissible by aerosol between ferrets, which are used as the mammalian model to study the potential of pandemic spread of strains of influenza.” Also, the work of Yoshihiro Kawaoka, of the University of Wisconsin regarding similar studies, was mentioned.
The key issue seems to be:
