well this is interesting, the first gmo flu vaccines are on the way, they use the genes from a type of catipiller to produce a protien of the virus in order to trigger a response, this actualy might make it harder to get the flu from the vaccine but they also say it could cause other side effects so there is a catch. so what do people here think about this. I know when it comes to food most people here are opposed to gmos and so am I but I think when used properly genetic engineering can have medical benifits for people, so I want to keep an eye on this story

If it's approved by the FDA, it has to go through satisfactory levels of testing. You can point out a few drugs that slipped through the cracks, but there are thousands of approved drugs.

You won't find an informed opinion on this topic on this forum.

Also, I can't really find any official sources on this. It's ONLY being talked about on conspiracy websites.

I found the official website, first off it hasn't been fully approved by the FDA, and it doesn't talk about that side effect the conspiracy writers are claiming. proof the conspiracy writers are lying. You know they are trying to make money too, right?

That's why when people make claims that something says something, you don't believe them and you check it for yourself.

This is just proof that you can get sick from GMO.


Now they are making a vaccine to prevent you from getting sick from GMO?

It's basically them admitting to producing a product that harms the consumer...

Interesting...

So how many people have gotten sick or died from GMO foods?

I would like to warn my parents since I'm sure they have no idea what this is.

I suppose its quite safe to assume that these vaccines really cannot be made any more harmful to ones health, or more destructive to the immune system than they already are.

It is astonishing to see how so many people wholeheartedly accept having this poison shot through their bodies despite hearing about the poisons used in them and how dangerous these ingredients are to ones health both long term as well as short term.

Modern day human experiments. As has been admitted to being done in the past under the "claims" of being the good and healthy thing to do in many countries using their population as test subjects.

So many foolish people accepting poison into their bodies, and the bodies of their poor children. A damned shame...

None. A lot of claims by sketchy websites, but I've yet to see solid evidence it's actually happened.

Hard to say, usually diagnosis just says "cancer".

itc depends who owns the company developing this vaccine because the fda is full of lawyers and ceos form majour gmo companies like monsanto and dupont which means they could manipulate the approval

The Examiner article's headline is very funny. It says, "Two vaccine study participants die during trials of the first GMO flu vaccine." What it doesn't tell you is that one of the deaths was in the experimental group, the other death was in the control (placebo) group. It could say "Two placebo study participants die during trials of placebo" and it would be just as meaningful.

And here I have been told for the past.. oh... my entire life, that you can't catch the flu from the flu vaccine.


PSC explains that Flublok is produced by extracting cells from a type of caterpillar. The cells are then genetically altered



Yup. Nothing can go wrong here.

well because the current vaccine uses the virus itself whereas this one uses just a protien, so it makes it less likely, though it could cause other problems so hopefuly there will be proper tests done

If you include supplements, the answer is of course 'at least 37', but that happened in 1989 and i imagine the Starlink corn scandal a few years ago wasn't healthy either.

you see, even though these things weren't publicised one can still know about them...

www.aquarianonline.com...



The official toll in the first year of the EMS outbreak in the United States numbered 37 dead, 1535 permanently disabled, and more than 5000 temporarily afflicted. It was never definitively determined if the toxic assault had been caused by slipshod production—a consequence of Showa Denko cutting back on the level of its filtration—or on genetic engineering gone wrong.


good enough?

Exactly. They sweep it under the rug.

Similar to when someone has pneumonia or the Flu, "It's SARS!" or "H3.2N61/2birdswinefrogmix!", it gets pulled out from under the rug, relabeled, processed, then propagated for mass hysteria.

... I'll stick to washing my hands and popping vitamin D thanks....
