A CHINA ELEMENT IN KIM JONG-NAM’S ASSASSINATION: CANTHARIDIN MORE DEADLY TO MALES , & CHINA IS ACTIVELY RESEARCHING IT
The following is provided without comment or conclusion and readers can determine for themselves where this information should lead. Having said that this writer will say that this bit of research has been prompted by the North Korean Government’s almost defensive questioning of why the two women who are alleged to have administered some skin absorbent poison to Kim Jong-nam do not themselves appear to be adversely affected. Even yesterday:
N Korea: How did duo survive contact with VX nerve agent?
The North Korean high-level delegation to Malaysia wants to know how the two women who had purportedly killed Kim Jong-nam using the highly toxic substance VX nerve agent could survive.
Kim, who was travelling using a North Korean passport under the name “Kim Chol”, died on Feb 13 at KLIA2 after a chemical substance was used on him.
Citing “international chemical experts”, Ri Ton-il, former North Korean deputy ambassador to the United Nations, who is part of the delegation, in a press conference today, pointed out how the two women had used their bare hands to contain the material before applying it on the victim’s face.
“The world’s greatest question is again, the question of the two ladies – they are the ones who directly contained the liquid on the palms of their hands to apply to the face.
“They are the first ones to have contact with this material while the victim died – how did they survive?
This persistent line of questioning led this writer to look up the research on genetically modified chemicals which are said to be capable of attaching to persons of particular genetic traits. In this case the distinction is clearly between male and female, and there is in fact a very common and widely used product that can cause death in especially,males:
Death is the down side of genuine spanish fly, and the main reason it’s much better to be sold a fraudulent dose than a genuine one. Even a minor overdose can lead to erections long enough to need medical intervention. Any more than that and people exhibit extreme abdominal pain, respiratory and heart problems, renal failure, bloody urine, convulsions, coma, and death.
The key element to (Spansih fly )is a chemical called cantharidin.
Chinese researchers have been doing work on cantharidin for many years and cantharidin products can even be purchased on-line on AliBaba.
Easy access and advanced research combined make modifications easy.It is not unlikely that the poison used on Kim Jong-nam was custom made for the purpose.

425.4K573Spanish Fly is an aphrodisiac that you’ve probably heard of from frat house sex comedies of the 1980s. Supposedly it could be slipped into a drink to make ladies hot. It turns out it is not just a legend. This aphrodisiac does exist, but it only makes gentlemen (physically) hot. And it would also probably kill them.The weirdest thing about spanish fly is that it actually exists. Even the name isn’t entirely wrong, since it comes from a group of insects whose most well-known subspecies is called spanish flies. More generally they’re called meloid beetles, or blister beetles. Wherever they are found they’re used, occasionally, as aphrodisiacs. The key element to them is a chemical called cantharidin.
Cantharidin makes spanish fly metaphorically apt as an aphrodisiac, as well as practically possible. Cantharidin is why meloid beetles are also called blister beetles. It can blister skin, and is a harsh poison if ingested. Biologists believe that meloid beetles develop it in order to make themselves as unattractive to predators as possible. They secrete it as a milky fluid from the joints in their legs, and are always looking to stockpile more of it. When the insects mate, they do it in a seemingly businesslike way, with the male handing over a packet of sperm to the female, who will fertilize her eggs with it at her convenience. Females can discard packets that don’t please them, and so to sweeten the deal, the males produce bonus packs of cantharidin, to allow females to cover the eggs with it and keep them safe from predators. This is called, by researchers studying the beetle, a nuptial gift. Perhaps observation of this process is what first turned people to the idea of the substance as an inducement to mating.
Cantharidin’s prowess as an irritant had to be known by anyone who ever encountered the beetles. It has been used externally as a way to remove warts, moles, and tattoos. Ingestion, and even digestion, does not diminish its ability to irritate. As it makes its way out of the body, it irritates the lining of the urethra. In women, the irritation is externally unnoticeable. In men, it causes a great deal of swelling in the area. This translates into a long-lasting erection. Most likely, it is not a pleasant erection, but that didn’t stop people in antiquity from giving small doses of cantharidin to bridegrooms, or taking a dose themselves in preparation for a special night. The poet and philosopher, Lucretius, is rumored to have died from an overdose of cantharidin from the meloid beetle.
Death is the down side of genuine spanish fly, and the main reason it’s much better to be sold a fraudulent dose than a genuine one. Even a minor overdose can lead to erections long enough to need medical intervention. Any more than that and people exhibit extreme abdominal pain, respiratory and heart problems, renal failure, bloody urine, convulsions, coma, and death. Since there are, now, easier ways to medically induce erections, and because “spanish fly” has lost a great deal of credibility over the years, few adults get meloid poisoning these days. The cases that make medical journals are usually of infants, who are still at a stage where they will try to eat anything. The condition can be fatal, but is treatable if the sufferer comes in to the hospital. Still, if a Valentine’s Day spent peeing blood at a hospital is not your idea of romance, stick to chocolates in a heart-shaped box.
