about the state of national science. This story began on February 2, when a round table was held at the Metropol Hotel in Moscow. Topic: "All-Russian vaccination or threat to national security." And so professors of medicine, molecular biologists spoke at it, discussed the burning problem of chipping. And now a certain professor Pavel Vorobyov said that "Sputnik V" is a genetically modified virus that little enters the cell, where it begins to multiply ... - we have a reverse transcriptase mechanism that reads foreign RNA and integrates it into human DNA. We cannot be completely protected from the emergence of new elements in the genome. In principle, nothing is known about this today. "

I began to look who Professor Vorobyov was. It turned out that he is the author of 20 textbooks, 50 books, that he is a hereditary doctor, that they are the son of the Minister of Health of the Russian Federation, former academician Andrei Vorobyov.

I thought: Oh my God! Here I am sitting, a humble philologist, my interests concern mainly the scientific history of Christianity. I can say before him as before the moon. But, nevertheless, I cannot but tell the professor, as a philologist to a biologist. First, the adenoviral vector in the body does not multiply, because it is a vector, because it is a virus from which a gene has been removed that allows it to multiply in the body. It reproduces only in a special environment in which this gene expresses. And most importantly, about reverse transcriptase. Actually, he's got retroviruses. There is such a family of viruses - retroviruses. These are RNA viruses that actually pass through the DNA stage when multiplying. And neither adenovirus nor coronavirus are retroviruses and they do not have reverse transcriptase.

In addition, as a philologist to professor, I cannot help but notice that an adenovirus does not need reverse transcriptase for insertion into the genome, because it is a DNA virus. Accordingly, he needs it like an umbrella to a fish. Moreover, the adenovirus does not integrate into the genome, because it multiplies in the cytoplasm, DNA is located in the cell nucleus. And at the same time, DNA viruses that are embedded in the DNA of a human cell do exist. This is, for example, papilloma or herpes virus. This is their normal breeding cycle. But coronaviruses do not integrate into DNA, and neither do adenoviruses.

But the worst thing I want to say is something else. Yes, if the papilloma or herpes virus is inserted into the genome and jumps in the wrong place, it can cause cancer. This is one of the hypotheses for the origin of some types of cancer. But all this happens without a vaccine and without a virus. Because in our genome there are hundreds of thousands of retroelements that sometimes jump from place to place. This is DNA metabolism. The probability that any of these jumps will cause cancer is very low, regardless of whether you are vaccinated or not.

And, in particular, I hasten to inform Professor Vorobyov that the formation of antibodies is exactly what happens due to the reorganization of the genome. Here, a newborn child has several thousand genes that are responsible for immunity. And out of these several thousand genes, millions of variants arise in the course of life, because if the human body encounters some kind of antigen, then those cells that are somehow able to bind to it and secrete antibodies begin to multiply. This is hypermutogenesis. A huge number of mutations arise, cells are selected that interact with the antigen better and better.And, in fact, in the course of the immune response, the genome changes all the time, until, finally, the body learns to produce a good antibody due to somatic hypermutation. This is an evolutionary mechanism. If it weren't for him, we would all be extinct. And the somatic restructuring of the genome, you will be replaced, is a normal part of our physiology.

It happens that a virus will not even integrate where it is inherited, because our genome contains a huge amount of remnants of old viruses that were embedded in our ancestors, in our distant progenitors thousands and millions of years ago. In general, our genome is 99% garbage.

At this round table - just refer to my article in Novaya Gazeta - a lot was said there. I will not enumerate further either this wonderful professor or molecular biologist Elena Kalle, who complained that the corresponding articles were written in English. This is apparently a terrible obstacle.

And this is the last thing I want to say. The coronavirus epidemic, of course, has become a tool of countless manipulations among politicians and the press and among scientists. That is, there are a lot of unscrupulous publications. We see a bunch of scarecrows. I will probably talk about them after the end of the "Access Code", but I will stay on "Latynina TV" and, probably, I will talk about some of these scarecrows.

We have just heard a statement from the WHO commission that they will not consider the version that the virus escaped from the Wuhan Institute of Virology, but will consider the version that it was brought to Wuhan in frozen meat. Well, apparently from the Pentagon.

Listen, this is medieval ignorance, when people who actually bear the name of professors who are molecular biologists argue that the NRZB electricity has damped, that the mitochondria have grown fangs. This is still some level of ignorance that is unthinkable in that very West. And then we are surprised when Putin talks about stealing genetic material from the Russians? Listen, here he has such advisers who studied the original Russian science, who talk about genetic manipulation with the help of a vaccine.

Appearance.

Somewhat smaller than a house sparrow. The upper part of the body is light gray, the stripe from the beak through the eye to the ear and throat is black, the tail and wings are brownish with light stripes, the cheeks, chest and abdomen are white with an ocher tint. In females and juveniles, the black color is replaced by brownish.

Lifestyle.

Inhabits sandy and hilly deserts with bushes or saxaul thickets. A rare resident bird. It keeps in pairs or small flocks on the ground and bushes. A large ball-shaped nest with a cylindrical entrance is placed on a tree. Clutch of 5-6 white eggs with dark spots in April - May. The voice is a short trill.It differs from other sparrows in light gray color.

Description

Field sparrow (Passer montanus) does not have such a pronounced sexual dimorphism as its house brother - males and females of these birds are colored almost identically. In addition, it is much smaller than the house sparrow: its mass ranges from 20 to 30 g, while the mass of the house sparrow is from 28 to 38 g. The top of the head of the field sparrow, the so-called "cap", is of a pleasant brown color, therefore in Western countries it is called the red-headed sparrow. The "bridle", the stripe under the eye, the throat and the ear coverts are black, on the white cheeks there are black dots - by this sign, the field sparrow can be easily distinguished from the brownie. The plumage of the back, wings and tail of the field sparrow is brown, often with dark trunks and light buffy edging of feathers, the abdomen is whitish, the sides of the neck are also white, the beak is brownish-black in winter with a yellow base, in summer it is black, the legs are pale brown. The plumage of young birds is much dimmer than that of adults, the top of the head and back are grayish-brown with dark streaks, the abdomen is off-white, the throat, "bridle" and ear coverts are gray. Bird watchers distinguish from 7 to 33 subspecies of the field sparrow.

Spread

Like the house sparrow, the field sparrow is extremely widespread: its range covers almost all of Eurasia, with the exception of the Far North. In most regions of our country, both species of sparrows live together, and only in the south of the Far East does the field sparrow live alone. In Vladivostok, Nakhodka and other cities and towns of Primorye (with the exception of Ussuriisk, where the house sparrow is also found), the field sparrow replaces its larger relative. Both sparrow species have settled so widely only due to their great ecological plasticity. They managed to perfectly adapt to life in the neighborhood of humans: here sparrows have a variety of food, nesting places and protection from many predators. It is interesting that man himself contributed to the resettlement of sparrows. So, field sparrows were introduced and released on some islands of the Indo-Australian archipelago, in the south of Australia and in North America, where their only habitat so far is between the Mississippi and Missouri rivers.

Field sparrow lives in various biotopes in the north and in the middle lane, preferring woodlands, groves, shrubs, parks, gardens, outskirts of large cities. He avoids settling only in large continuous forests and taiga, where he penetrates only into human settlements. In the steppe zone, the field sparrow lives along the cliffs in the burrows of various birds, in the floodplain forests, as well as in human habitation. It is especially numerous in places where there are fields with grain crops.

Reproduction

A clutch of a field sparrow can contain from 2 to 9 eggs (usually 5-6). The female lays eggs from early April to early July. The clutch is incubated for 11-13 days and both parents feed the chicks. Chicks fledge at the age of 12-17 days. Fledglings of field sparrows were observed from late May to mid-September, since sparrows hatch two or three broods per season.

Food

Field sparrows feed on seeds, including cultivated cereals, however, they feed their chicks exclusively with insects. In non-nesting time, they keep in flocks of several dozen birds, often together with house sparrows.
