These “genetic bombs,” the report warns, could contain specially developed bubonic plague or anthrax strains that only affect certain types of people with specific genetic makeups. Everyone else exposed to them would be immune.
Entitled “Biotechnology, Weapons and Humanity II,” the report warns that advancements in human genome technology combined with the development of vectors capable of disrupting genes and introducing harmful material into cells has deeply concerning implications for the future of humanity.
Much like Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccines that contain gene-altering messenger RNA (mRNA) technology, genetically targeted bioweapons are no longer the thing of sci-fi novels.
“The problem is that the same technology being developed to create new vaccines and find cures for Alzheimer’s and other debilitating diseases could also be used for malign purposes,” says Malcolm Dando, a professor of peace studies at the University of Bradford and the author of the BMA report.
Interestingly, the BMA’s “Biotechnology, Weapons and Humanity I” report, which was released back in 1999, completely dismissed all of this as impossible. Oh, what a difference a few decades can make.
Since that time, a German group known as the Sunshine Project was able to identify how mutations in the human genome called single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) vary among ethnic groups. From this, the BMA came to a much different conclusion in its second release of this report.
“Genome data in public databases revealed that hundreds, possibly thousands, of target sequences for ethnic specific weapons do exist,” the Sunshine Project found. “It appears that ethnic specific biological weapons may indeed become possible in the near future.”
Instead of triggering the specific toxic effects of organisms such as anthrax, advanced genetic bioweapons instead use RNA interference to shut down vital genes. If the sequence of the target gene is different between two populations, RNA interference could target the one and not the other.
“If as little as 10% or 20% of a target population would be affected, this would wreak havoc among enemy soldiers on a battlefield or in an enemy society as a whole,” the group says.
The Nazis attempted the same thing, showing that there is nothing new under the sun
Not everyone is convinced it is quite this simple, though.
David Goldstein, who studies population genetics at University College London (now known as London’s Global University), says that creating a weapon that targets one ethnic group but not another “is just not going to happen.”
“Because all groups are quite similar you will never get something that is highly selective. The best you would probably do is something that kills 20% of one group and 28% of another,” he insists.
While it could theoretically be possible to target certain lineages of people, ethnic groups as most people look at them today are actually much broader and harder to distinguish at the genetic level than it would seem on the surface.
“Geneticists can only distinguish between people with ancestry traced to regions such as Europe, Sub-Saharan Africa and East Asia,” writes David Adam for The Guardian.
It is the type of thing that the Nazis were trying to accomplish with their medical experiments on concentration camp prisoners. Since much of their work was transferred elsewhere at the end of World War II, it is hardly a surprise that we are now seeing similar endeavors today, this time on a global scale.
