For those with a fear of needles, edible vaccines seem like some distant utopian dream, but that dream may soon be a reality… for chickens.

    Two words about gene-edited organisms being introduced into, or escaping into, 'the wild'.
    "Klebsiella planticola".
    Look it up. Can't put links in comments.

    In your example of the three chests, I can see the logic if ALL statements are truthful. If ONE (and only ONE) statement is not, the answer is different.

    Antivaxxers will starve 😐

    I hate being "that guy", but the picture of Duckweed is actually a picture of Salvinia, probably S. Minima.

    Plant vaccines would reduce or eliminate such issues as vaccine injury, trypanophobia (fear of needles), controversial cell lines, etc. However, emergency immunoglobulin would still need to be administered via injection, so the rabies PEP procedure wouldn't get any cheaper or less painful. The biggest issue I can see with this is the same issue I see with fluoridated water: Government mandated experiments on a national scale without the knowledge or consent of the test subjects. In other words, gross violations of the Nuremberg Code.

    If that works then that would be interesting to just throw out vax plants to even the wild birds and eliminate bird flu all together

    Hi,i followed now👍

    Giving a plant-based vaccine to a chicken which lives on a 20-thousand chicken farm is just… 😑Ethics anyone? Anybody?

    Writing this with tear of joy..never believed Dr Adigba herbal medicine could cure my herpes virus but I decided to give it a try and see what it has brought to my life permanent healing massage #DRADIGBA today to get your permanent healing you over wanted today…❤❤❤

    This is SO COOL!

  • Posted on Jul 08, 2022 at 21:13 pm

    Sounds like a great 6th gen weapon, can't wait.

  • Posted on Jul 09, 2022 at 01:08 am

    This is very fascinating research!

  • Posted on Jul 09, 2022 at 10:50 am

    This sounds really revolutionary! However I am concerned how MUCH of the vaccine a chicken would need to consume before it's effective or if too much could overwhelm their immune system. Just food for thought.

  • Posted on Jul 09, 2022 at 14:45 pm

    is it AUtIStiC prrof?

  • Posted on Jul 10, 2022 at 00:02 am

    I hope this fails to reach human trials. They probably won't label these plants as such so they can force vaccinate people.

  • Posted on Jul 10, 2022 at 05:57 am

    Oh, so wokes finally accept frankenfood now? Interesting.

    I worked on oral vaccines in plants. Our ultimate goal was an HIV vaccine that would be shelf stable to ship to Africa.
    There were 2 problems: 1. All the traditional HIV vaccines underperformed. 2. Sometimes the plants that are great at gene expression like potatoes and corn and soybeans are usually cooked which denatures proteins.

    I find it irresponsible to experiment with Nature.

    You can't jump hundreds or thousands of years evolutionary steps, without risking irreversible damage of our natural environment!

  • Posted on Jul 11, 2022 at 03:02 am

    If you can eat plants with vaccines in them then we should also have animals with vaccines in them for eating.
    Buckets of steak tartare or something that vaccinate you would be awesome.

  • Posted on Jul 11, 2022 at 16:47 pm

    I can only imagine the combination of antivaxx anti-gmo nonsense this could spawn

  • Posted on Jul 12, 2022 at 07:48 am

    Are the precise doses less important with oral vaccines? How do we make sure people or chickens don't eat too little to be effective or so much it becomes dangerous?

  • Posted on Jul 13, 2022 at 03:29 am

    Even if marking this work for people is decades down the road, vaxing chickens would be game changing!

  • Posted on Jul 14, 2022 at 18:45 pm

    The same problem holds true for using plants for anything.
    How do you grow these plants in a dessert, how do poor countries get this ,and how do you grow these plants in forest and wet lands without destroying the natural landscape.

    Has anyone ever watched I am legend?

  • Posted on Jul 16, 2022 at 17:37 pm

    This is amazing but it came with complications that out weighted the benefits. Well I believe the scientists will crack the code for this problem.

  • Posted on Jul 18, 2022 at 17:59 pm

    Streamer CarlSagan42 has been involved with plant-based vaccines, and even made a YouTube video from inside the lab on his "Larl's Lab" channel if you want to see some of the behind-the-scenes of some of this stuff.

  • Posted on Jul 21, 2022 at 01:54 am

    This is so cool! But I can easily foresee some conspiracy theorist who doesn't understand science coming across this video and spreading misinformation that the government is putting vaccines(and microchips) into our food to target the "woke" people who avoided getting the covid vaccine

  • Posted on Jul 22, 2022 at 12:06 pm

    Anti vaxx conspiracy theorists are gonna have a blast with this one 🙂

  • Posted on Jul 24, 2022 at 16:01 pm

    Put the protein in corn and you don't need to worry about the stomach destroying it LOL

  • Posted on Aug 01, 2022 at 20:08 pm

    That's so cool! Definitely a bit away from being used in humans, but hopefully in the future it's something that can be done as it's incredibly convenient and less costly. Even before humans, using it in things like chickens will be nice to prevent the spread of diseases amongst them.

    Dr. Agboya herbal treatment is very effective and safe in curing herpes viruses and other diseases. I was cured of herpes simplex virus through the help of Dr. Agboya herbal medicine on YouTube 🌿

    We mass treated wildlife for rabies by dropping food with antibodoes all over the wild.
