WHO and NIH Ignored Evidence of Human Infection

Look at the evidence; the ignored studies
People paid to protect human health have conflicts of interest
Ever since Chen, Dong, et al. (2015) published Detection of Wolbachia genes in a patient with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, I've been gobsmacked that not one of our public health authorities (that I've contacted) is:
1) acknowledging Wolbachia is in our environment, and
2) recommending that humans be tested for Wolbachia infections via a broad-range PCR screen for infection by Rickettsiales (Wolbachia genes in blood and tissues). NB: Not skin snips (which ONLY detects adult worms). The worms do not need to be present. In fact, the worm is the innocent bystander.
And Chen, Dong, et al. made made it clear in their open-access paper (dated February 2015):
"Hence, Wolbachia spp. should be further evaluated as causes of human infection, especially as Wolbachia infection of mosquitoes is increasingly considered to be a tool for interfering with mosquito-borne transmission of human pathogens."
They wrote "as causes of human infection" and not "in cases of NHL (non-Hodgkin's lymphoma)".
I emphasize this since I've recently been derided by narrow-minded thinkers — most likely shills with a vested interest — that only this man, with this type of cancer, could possibly be infected with Wolbachia.
Here are the shocking points of this case which should be making the rounds in every oncology department:
The gent first presented with intermittent fever, headache, and myalgias [muscle pain].
It was later that he was diagnosed with NHL.
He fully recovered [was cancer-free] once his infection was treated and "no Wolbachia genes were amplified from blood" upon his discharge from the hospital.
Oxitec Ltd. Warned the EPA About MosquitoMate's Plan
Wolbachia Could Introduce Over 1000 New Genes in Mosquitoes
Keith A. Matthews, Wiley Rein LLP, wrote on behalf of Oxitec Ltd.
EPA-HQ-OPP-2016-0205-0027 Public Participation for New Active Ingredient (Wolbachia pipientis, ZAP Strain in male Aedes albopictus (Asian tiger mosquitoes) dated November 28th, 2017:
"Oxitec has serious concerns regarding EPA's proposed registration decision for application 89668-U."
"EPA should under no circumstances approve this product for homeowner use."
"The most likely failure of the ZAP Aedes albopictus control program is through the release of ZAP females resulting in replacement of the wild albopictus population with mosquitoes carrying the ZAP Wolbachia strain. If this occurs the ZAP mosquito product can no longer be efficacious, and the ZAP Wolbachia strain, which is not naturally found in Aedes albopictus, could potentially spread throughout the United States."
"Moreover, in such circumstances, the spread of ZAP Wolbachia mosquitoes would not necessarily be limited to the States where the registration may be approved."
"Female ZAP mosquitoes that are released will carry the ZAP Wolbachia strain in their eggs, and such offspring will survive to adulthood."
"The female offspring from such eggs will also inherit the ZAP Wolbachia strain and their offspring can survive, whether they mate a ZAP male or a wild-type male."
"In typical Malthusian dynamics, this will lead to the ZAP strain spreading throughout an Aedes albopictus population. When this occurs, the ZAP males are no longer effective and this leads to a failure of control."
"In addition, and of significant concern, humans, pets, and wild animals (including endangered animals), which are all targets of the Aedes albopictus mosquito species, will then be exposed to the ZAP Wolbachia from bites by infected females."
I believe this has already happened; probably began in 2014
Arctic terns (a migratory bird) suffered massive breeding failures that year.
Remember too, that when birds die, Wolbachia can survive (at least) a week in a dead host with no decrease in viability— ample time for parasites, mites, and other organisms and creatures to acquire and spread it.
Arctic terns fly from their Arctic breeding grounds to the Antarctic and back again each year (the shortest distance between these areas being 19,000 km (12,000 mi). Wherever they die, their carcasses would become sources of infection.
Wolbachia can be spread via co-ingestion or secondary predation.
Wolbachia is both a bacteria and reproductive parasite that competes with mammalian mitochondria (and even interacts with the nuclear membrane).
As such, Wolbachia infections would most likely affect cells of the brain, spinal cord, nerves (including the nerves to the stomach and intestines), muscles, gonads, lungs, kidneys, heart, liver, eyes, ears, or pancreas.
And the Dmp53 tumor gene in Drosophila melanogaster (aka wMel) binds specifically to human p53 (which is implicated in 1/2 of human cancers). This was known in 2000 (18 years ago).
Both teams in Kentucky, U.S. and Australia state publicly they've been working on Wolbachia-infected Aedes for over 20 years. Whose to say that Wolbachia-infected Aedes, eggs, or larvae did not accidentally make their way out of those labs during the earliest years of experimentation?
When Oxitec Ltd. pointed out that Wolbachia pipientis could introduce over 1000 new genes into the target mosquito with unknown consequences, I realized that many human infections, especially low-grade B-cell lymphomas — often considered indolent — are actually Wolbachia infections in disguise.
No one that I've contacted (and I've emailed/copied hundreds of people employed in public health) will answer me why we are not testing humans (or any vertebrate) for Wolbachia genes in the blood — ideally within the first week of symptoms.
I am not only concerned about Aedes transmitting Wolbachia, but more so when Culex spp. (or a dozen other bloodsucking arthropods) acquire and infect humans (and other vertebrate species).
