The body of a whistleblower who exposed the U.S. government’s plan to release millions of GMO mosquitoes into the public was found floating in a D.C. hotel pool. The body of 45-year-old Milagro de Mier was found in the pool of a hotel close to the DC Convention Center on April 10. Milagro had blown the whistle on plans by the US Food and Drug Administration and Environmental Protection Agency to release 50 million genetically-modified mosquitoes in Florida and Texas.
Memoryholeblog.org reports: “These GMO mosquitoes could pose major risks to fragile ecosystems like the Florida Keys and Texas and may pose risks to public health and safety,” de Mier argued on the page of her Change.org petition.
Fox News5 reports on April 10:
Authorities said they were called to the Cambria Hotel & Suites Washington, D.C. Convention Center in the 890 block of O Street, NW at about 9:40 a.m.
According to a police report, a witness found an unconscious woman floating inside the rooftop pool and called 911.
When emergency crews responded to the scene they found the woman facedown and attempted to revive her but she was pronounced dead at the scene.
Authorities later identified the woman as 45-year-old Milagro Demier of Key West, Florida.
Detectives said a death investigation was underway to determine the circumstances surrounding the drowning. No other details were immediately available.
Milagro “Mila” De Mier’s petition at Change.org encourages people to publicly voice their concern to the FDA and Environmental Protection Agency during a “public comment period” on Oxitec’s mosquito release, which ended April 9. The petition had recently exceeded over 190,000 signatures.
De Mier describes the campaign at Change.org:
Right now, a British company named Oxitec is planning to release genetically modified mosquitoes into the fragile enviroment of the Florida Keys and Texas. The company wants to use the Florida Keys and Texas as a testing ground for these mutant bugs.
Even though the local community in the Florida Keys has spoken — we even passed an ordinance demanding more testing — First, Oxitec is trying to use a loophole by applying to the FDA for an “animal bug” patent. Now, the hot potato has passed to the EPA and Oxitec is at it again. This profit driven biotech company wants to release more than 50 million GMO mosquitoes per week into Florida and Texas. These GMO mosquitoes could pose major risks to fragile ecosystems like the Florida Keys and Texas and may pose risks to public health and safety.
GMO Mosquitoes are created with E-Coli bacteria, herpes-simplex virus and other ingredients. This is very premature technology with very little information, a lot of questions need to be answer[ed].
The Center for Disease Control notes that Oxitec’s trials are not set up to test for disease reduction. If the experiments goes forward, there would still be enough non-GMO mosquitoes in the environment, including in peoples’ homes and backyards, to spread disease.
With her petition picking up steam and the EPA’s public comment period ending, de Mier’s recent Tweets indicate that she was on her way to the EPA in person to request that EPA Director Scott Pruitt extend the time for public comment on the mosquito release another 60 days.
The last post on De Mier’s Twitter account was in the late morning of April 9.
Our condolences go out to this brave soul’s family. The world is surely in need of more Mila de Miers.

Monsanto’s Herbicide Glyphosate Found In Vaccines
We keep hearing that vaccines are safe, but is it safe to inject a ‘probably carcinogenic’ herbicide?
Anthony Samsel, an independent researcher in New Hampshire and one of the worlds leading researchers on GMOs, collected a large number of popular vaccinations and had them analyzed by multiple labs in the United States for the presence of Glyphosate.
He found, as suspected, that the vaccines were largely contaminated by Monsanto’s herbicide.
Dr. Brownstein reports:
Researcher Anthony Samsel has published five peer-reviewed articles on the herbicide Glyphosate (the active ingredient in Roundup®). A yet-to-be published sixth paper found various commonly-used vaccines contaminated with the herbicide glyphosate.
Yes, you read that correctly: Our vaccines are contaminated with an herbicide that the World Health Organization characterized as “probably carcinogenic to humans.”
How can this happen? That answer is easy.
Many vaccines contain animal byproducts such as gelatin, bovine casein, bovine serum, bovine calf serum, or chicken egg protein. The animals from which these products come from are fed grains sprayed with glyphosate. It does not take a rocket scientist to come to the conclusion that these animals, fed glyphosate in their diet, would contain glyphosate in their byproducts.
Samsel sent a letter to Congress that stated:
“I have run numerous groups of vaccines and identified several vectors of contamination. These include the excipient gelatins, egg protein and or similar substrates used to grow vaccines. I have found gelatins and egg proteins contaminated with Glyphosate-based herbicides from animals fed a glyphosate contaminated diet. This contamination carries into thousands of consumer products i.e. vitamins, protein powders, wine, beer and other consumables which use gelatins as part of the product or in fining and processing.”
What did Samsel hear back?
He heard nothing.
In other words, our do-nothing Congress, so far, has failed to respond. In his letter to Congress, Samsel also stated that Glyphosate is a synthetic amino acid. It bioaccumulates and is found in all tissue types, particularly the bone and marrow of animals fed a diet contaminated with Glyphosate residues.
You can see Dr. Samsel talk about his research by clicking here.
The following vaccines were found to be contaminated with the herbicide glyphosate:
2. Varicella (chicken pox)
3. Zostavax (shingles)
4. Proquad (MMR, rubella, varicella)
5. Fluzone Quad (flu vaccine)
6. Hepatitis B (B Energix-B)
Multiple vaccines from different manufactures were found to be contaminated. Folks, this is a big deal. Injecting a vaccine contaminated with a known herbicide that is “probably carcinogenic to humans” should be prohibited. We need a Congressional investigation into our vaccines.
