UPDATE 03. August 2020: Rockefeller's "Reset the Table:" Food Tyranny & Transform Food Supply

By hook or by crook... “Edible Vaccine”?

PHARMING: Food that Changes YOU

STOP food bioengineering !

By IceFarmer - 31. July 2020

We hear a lot about vaccines, but what if the real threat is something as seemingly innocuous as a tomato?

Scientists are “Pharming” tomatoes that will act as “edible coronavirus vaccines,” as we are told that GMO is mandatory in this “new normal.”

The ultimate goal, they admit, is to modify the genetics of the consumer. Is food the ultimate delivery mechanism to achieve a GMO transhuman future?

Every aspect of the food supply chain is being destroyed and perverted, and you must start growing your own food for your family.

“You are what you eat.” / “Let thy food be thy medicine.”

Scientists Are Growing Genetically Modified Tomatoes As Edible Coronavirus Vaccine

By GreatGameIndia - 30. July 2020

After AI robots for enforcing mandatory face maskrules and vaccination history based digital identity, now scientists in Mexico are growing genetically modified tomatoes as edible coronavirus vaccine. A research group at a Mexican university is using bioinformatics and computational genetic engineering to identify candidate antigens for a vaccine that can be expressed in tomato plants. Eating the fruit from these plants would then confer immunity against COVID-19.

Plants as Biofactories for Vaccines

A lesser-known approach to produce antigens and vaccines on a large scale is the use of plants as biofactories. The plants are genetically modified (Figure 1) to produce, for example, virus-like-particles (VLPs), which are structural proteins of the virus, or “multi-epitope” proteins, where different sequences of an antigen allow us to generate an immunizing and protective response in humans.

General scheme for recombinant protein production in plants using agroinfiltration: The recombinant protein/antigen expression cycle takes 6–10 days starting with agroinfiltration of grown plants and Agrobacterium culture (A). Agroinfiltration is accomplished by submerging plants in bacterial culture harboring plasmid vectors coding for gene of interest and subjecting them to vacuum pulse to force the bacterial culture in (B). Plants are incubated for several days (C) and harvested (D) by strictly controlled protocol designed to prevent the release of genetically engineered bacteria into the environment. Subsequently, the extraction of recombinant proteins is carried out (E) and the purification to make the recombinant drug or vaccine (F). Source: Pharmacognosy, 2017

At the beginning of 2020, 97 experimental vaccineshad been obtained with this methodology, including plant-grown antigens for HIV, polio, hepatitis B, rabies, HPV, cholera and tuberculosis, among other pathogens.

Genetically Modified Plant based Vaccine

Since the 1990s, several research groups have worked on the modification of edible plants and fruits that generate an immune response in the intestinal epithelium of animals after oral intake (Figure 2). Genetically modified crops — still at the experimental, not commercial, level — used to create “edible vaccines” range from potato, tomato, lettuce, papaya, carrot and rice to quinoa, alfalfa, banana and algae. They have focused on hepatitis B, rotavirus, Norwalk virus, malaria, cholera and autoimmune diseases, among others.

Transient transformation approaches allow high protein yields in the transformed plants, which are processed to purify the target biopharmaceutical and obtain injectable vaccines or monoclonal antibodies. Stable genetic transformation technologies applied in edible plant species can render oral vaccine formulations (e.g. capsules or tables containing freeze-dried leaves).

Genetically Modified Tomatoes as edible Coronavirus Vaccine

The idea of GMO tomatoes as edible coronavirus vaccine was chosen by Daniel Garza, a young bio-technologist and entrepreneur with a research stay at the Institute of Biotechnology of the Autonomous University of Nuevo León (UANL) in Mexico. In an interview with Cornell Alliance for Science, he said,

“The development of an edible vaccine against SARS-CoV-2 has so far been a little-explored alternative, even though the benefits are evident. Under this premise, this problem would be addressed with the focus of developing a fusion protein with the characteristics of a vaccine to be expressed in tomato plants.”

Regardless of the effectiveness of the GMO vaccine, there is also a problem of legislation as GMOs are banned in many nations. Only 26 nations currently have regulations implemented for the commercial use of GMOs.

“Given the current contingency situation for the COVID-19 we are experiencing, it will undoubtedly make us rethink the legislation of the GMOs that apply not only in Mexico but in Latin America,” Garza noted.

“What is currently happening allows us to rethink whether we are really capable as countries of being able to face a pandemic of such magnitude without using the full potential that GMOs offer us for the development of vaccines, especially for developing countries …

The benefits of biotechnology must be shown to society not as an evil, but as an effective solution to many of the problems that we currently have in the region.”

Under the push for a GMO vaccine, already the European Union has suspended GMO regulations to fast-track COVID-19 vaccine.

In response to this, the Consumer Choice Center’s senior policy analyst Bill Wirtz said he’s “puzzled by the change of heart” of members of the parliament, adding: “If you had suggested anything of the sort six months ago, some lawmakers would have been furious.”

As of now, the future prospect of this ongoing project is expression of the candidate antigens in tomato and evaluating their immunogenic and protective capacity in animal models. As the research progresses, the companies or research centres will be working collaboratively to evaluate and bring the candidate vaccine to the clinical phase.

UPDATE:

Rockefeller's "Reset the Table:" Food Tyranny & Transform Food Supply

•Premiered 03. August 2020

Ice Age Farmer

The Rockefeller Foundation has released a new report, "Reset The Table" -- an implied part of "The Great Reset" -- describing a radical transformation of our food system in the face of the most significant disruption to our food supply in history.

The report calls to provide food to all (like UBI), use schools as community nutrition distribution anchors, de-fund farms/ranches via "true cost accounting" that includes CO2, provide funds to BIPOC, collect realtime data for AI/automation, and much, much more.

Christian breaks down this report, which builds upon the assault upon global food supply and your ability to feed your family. Thank you for sharing this report to help spread the word.

Since 20 Years US Pharma Is Pushing This

Tomato Vaccine

dekBy Michael D. Lemonick - 18. November 2002

Inventor: Charles Arntzen

Charles Arntzen is convinced that the reddish, powdery substance he holds in his hand will make the world a safer place. Arntzen, an Arizona State University biologist, has been working for nearly five years to create what is basically freeze-dried tomato juice — but not from any ordinary tomatoes. This fruit (yes, tomatoes are fruits, not vegetables) carries a gene from a strain of the E. coli bacterium.

Some strains of E. coli can cause violent diarrhea and death. Swigged down in reconstituted juice, however, a protein made by the E. coli gene should act as a vaccine, priming the immune system to recognize and fight off the real thing. What's the advantage?

Conventional vaccines are costly to make and distribute in the impoverished Third World countries that need them most.

That's why Arntzen and others began thinking about using plants instead of needles, creating vaccines that would be easy to grow locally in, say, Vietnam or Bangladesh. He focused on diarrhea, because, says Arntzen, "diarrheal diseases kill at least 2 million people in the world every year, most of them children."

And he chose tomatoes because greenhouse-grown tomatoes can't easily pass their altered genes to other crops and because tomato-processing equipment is relatively cheap. It would be easier still just to take whole tomatoes and eat them, but that could be a disaster, says Arntzen. Individual tomatoes come in different sizes with varying levels of protein, and uniformity of dosage is key to an effective vaccine.

"I'll always regret calling these edible vaccines,'" he says, "because that's just the image it conjures up." Arntzen hopes to test his tomato juice on animals within the year, with human trials to follow.

He's also thinking about vaccines for cholera, hepatitis, human papilloma virus and measles. And he's not alone: some four dozen labs around the world are working on their own versions of what Arntzen would prefer to call "plant-derived" vaccines, based on tomatoes, bananas and potatoes. Within a few years, some of the planet's most pernicious killers could be in retreat — and it won't hurt a bit.
