With every ignorant news organization across America now pushing Americans to slather their skin with DEET chemicals as a defense against Zika mosquitoes, there’s something every American needs to know: DEET is one chemical component of a binary chemical weapon system currently being carpet bombed onto U.S. civilian populations.
That’s an aggressive assertion, I fully realize. So in this article, I’m going to lay out the science for you that proves all this, citing published scientific studies, government research papers, historical accounts of military actions and molecular citations from the world’s most authoritative sources on chemistry. As far as my own science background goes, I am the lab science director of CWC Labs, an internationally accredited, ISO-17025 accredited forensic food analysis laboratory. I personally run mass spec (LC/MS-TOF) systems with a special focus on pesticides, herbicides and chemical toxicology. In fact, I have just completed a science paper on the world’s first LC/MS-TOF accurate quantitation and anti-counterfeit analysis method for cannabidiols in hemp extracts, and that paper is going to be published later this year at a science expo event. I’m also the author of the Amazon.com #1 bestselling science book Food Forensics.
In other words, let there be no doubt whatsoever that I know what I’m talking about when it comes to the science I’m about to describe here. Nearly everyone who attacks this story, you will find, has no qualifications to even understand the science.
DEET damages brain cells
Note the molecular formula of C12H17NO. This means it has a total of 12 carbon atoms, 17 hydrogen atoms, one nitrogen and one oxygen. (We often use molecular formulas as shorthand in chemistry. This tells you the elemental composition and ratios, but not the bonding configuration or polarity.)
All by itself, the DEET chemical is known to cause damage to nerve cells. Let’s explore that, because DEET is just one part of a binary chemical weapon system that is right now being deployed against the American people… a weapon system engineered to cause mass fear and confusion while even achieving a “behavior modifying” effect as you’ll soon see.
DEET damages brain cells by interfering with enzymatic reactions
Ever wonder how DEET kills insects? It’s an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor, meaning it blocks the molecular action of acetylcholinesterase.
French scientists Vincent Corbel from the Institut de Recherche pour le Developement in Montpellier and Bruno Lapied from the University of Angers headed a team of researchers who studied the mode of action and toxicity of DEET, also known by the chemical name N,N-Diethyl-3-methylbenzamide. “We’ve found that DEET is not simply a behavior-modifying chemical but also inhibits the activity of a key central nervous system enzyme, acetylcholinesterase, in both insects and mammals,” Corbel said in a statement to the media.
What exactly is acetylcholinesterase? “Acetylcholinesterase (AChE, acetycholine acetylhydrolase…) is found in many types of conducting tissue: nerve and muscle, central and peripheral tissues, motor and sensory fibers, and cholinergic and noncholinergic fibers,” says this 2013 science paper in Current Neuropharmocology: “Acetylcholinesterase Inhibitors: Pharmacology and Toxicology.”
Blocking AChE causes “disrupted neurotransmission” and other damaging effects to brain cells: “The enzyme inactivation, induced by various inhibitors, leads to acetylcholine accumulation, hyperstimulation of nicotinic and muscarinic receptors, and disrupted neurotransmission.”
