Nov 8 with Marinza Bruineman on “Salt in your Cocaine”

‘Salt in Your Cocaine’ is a wryly satirical expose of Global Warming, weather manipulations and the biggest Ponzi scheme ever. It is a highly irrevent page-turner about the state of humanity and the lies and deception that have become the standards for civilized society all over the world. In addition, Salt in Your Cocaine provides the readership with a very interesting and unique way to look at their fellow humans and recognize their potential behavioral patterns with the Human Behavioral Quintet. While supported by real facts, Salt in your Cocaine allows the readers to draw their own conclusions and decide for themselves if this is the world they want their children to grow up in. This book is a tremendously humorous read at the same time that it is a real warning to where humanity is heading.

Marinza Bruineman was born in the Netherlands in 1958 and moved to CA when she was 21. She graduated in molecular biology from San Jose State U and worked at Sandoz in Palo Alto, CA as a research scientist in the field of microbiology. The objective was to make organic crop protection for such crops as potatoes, tomatoes and corn. The insecticide against the insects that invade these crops was created by genetically engineering the plasmids in a bacillus called “bacillus thuringiensis.” A plasmid is the genetic material in the bacillus and it looks a bit like a circle. The plasmid has genes that code for certain proteins. These plasmids were cut and spliced by the biologists to optimize their genetic expression, and a new strain of bacillus was grown that had the optimized plasmid in it. Whereas one strain of bacillus would code for only one particular protein, this new strain with the cut and spliced optimized plasmid could now code for multiple proteins – all in one single bacillus. The optmized plasmid codes for an array of proteins when the bacillus goes into sporulation. It is by means of sporulation that the bacillus procreates, and the proteins created by its plasmid kill a certain insect. It turned out that these proteins are very effective as insecticides for certain crops, and by creating an optimized plasmid in one single bacillus that codes for more than one type of insecticidal protein the microbial genetic engineering effort achieved its goal in cost-effective agricultural protection. At the same time, this crop protection was organic, instead of chemical, and not harmful to the mammalian systems.

Marinza later went to NYC and worked at Rockefeller U as a research scientist. This time the research involved mammalian systems and the objective was to find a mutated gene that was suspected to be involved with obesity and diabetes. The way to do this was to extract DNA and RNA from obese mice and look for point mutations. Marinza was involved with this type of genetic analysis and discovered that gene expression was strongest in fatty tissue – which one might have expected.
