(NaturalHealth365) Can you imagine eating vaccine ingredients with your fruits and vegetables? That’s right – major biotechnology companies have a (sick) vision of using the food supply to develop vaccines for AIDS, diabetes and a host of chronic diseases. Now, is the time, to wake up our society to the value of fresh, organic food or we will suffer grave consequences to our health.
This is how biotech farming threatens human existence
Biotech companies focus on engineered seeds as a delivery system for recombinant vaccines and antibodies. These soulless scientists believe that vaccines, like the flu shot, can be manufactured cheaper and faster than current methods without regard to human health. So, to speed up the process – pharmaceutical companies are looking toward the plant world (our food supply) as a solution to their problem.
The procedure is getting fine-tuned; first a flu-virus gene is inserted into a bacterium which our immune system will recognize, then the plant gets infected with the virus. I can’t think of a better reason to buy local (untainted) organic food.
The military thinks it’s a great idea to make our food a weapon
The Department of Defense is giving $40 million toward the bioengineering of our food supply – it’s called Project GreenVax. The generic name is molecular farming and it’s a new technology that uses plants to produce large quantities of pharmaceutical substances such as vaccines – quickly. By the way, this science is similar to the genetic manipulation of our food crops called GMO.
Just Google “Project GreenVax” yourself – it’s pretty scary stuff!
A number of vaccines and other therapeutic substances made in plants such as tobacco, maize, potato and carrot are already commercially available or in clinical trials. Producing pharmaceuticals in plants is faster and 80 precent lower in costs than using animal or microbial cell cultures.
In molecular farming – a DNA molecule carrying the genetic information is introduced into the plant genome. The transformed plant acts as a bioreactor producing large quantities of the pharmaceutical agent. So, you may be asking yourself, what’s the risk? Well, for one thing, it’s never been done before and we have no idea of the long term impact on our health or on our environment.
Our food supply is being poisoned without our permission
Producing vaccines in plants has many drawbacks, including contamination of our food supply. If a vaccine were consumed inadvertently, it could lead to desensitization, which means a vaccination would not work – making the whole method of production a waste of time and money.
There is a very real possibility that these plants can be either be eaten by animals in the vicinity or given to them in feed. Another very real danger is these active substances will enter our water supply. Either way – do the benefits really outweigh the dangers?
Big Pharma wants to make a killer profit on our lives
The rewards for the public may be very few, unless you consider frequent drug dosing an advantage. For the pharmaceutical industry cash crops take on a whole new meaning. The dollar signs in the farmer’s fields means the bio-tech industry will go forward toward commercialization of this new technology with or without our knowledge.
The National Food Processors Association (NFPA) stated in a position statement in November of 2002 that it “finds there is an unacceptable risk to the integrity of the food supply associated with the use of food and feed crops as “factories” for the production of pharmaceuticals or industrial chemicals.”
The Nebraska Farmers Union president John Hansen said, “There may be a television program here or an article there about what’s happening, but I don’t think most Americans have any idea of the extent to which things have been pushed forward without the kind of research and precautions that ordinary common sense would demand.”
