Edible vaccines are genetically modified crops that contain antigens for specific diseases. They are created by introducing the desired gene into the edible part of the plant to manufacture the encoded protein. This reduces the cost of production of the vaccine because of ease of culturing. Eating a vaccine is also a simpler means of administration compared to injection, making them extremely economical. They are easy to grow, are low cost, and easy to transport and preserve.
They have not been researched enough to know what the longterm effects might be. We have no idea how this will work. And yet our Big Pharma funded government is all ready to embrace them.
Scientists, funded with your tax dollars, are trying to turn edible plants like lettuce and spinach into mRNA vaccine factories. It's dangerous to play God with our food. The House just passed my amendment to prohibit USDA funding of this research. pic.twitter.com/XEyWGGZm5q— Thomas Massie (@RepThomasMassie) September 27, 2023
