Pharma Flakes Cereal: Genetically Engineered Delicious!
Edible vaccines, including pharma-ready food crops, are all the rage in biotech development
For years, the race has been on to develop effective and cost efficient edible contraceptives and pharmaceutical drugs that can be grown in genetically-modified crops and even delivered by consuming the harvested fruit or veggie.
Freaky, experimental biotech corporations have already developed edible vaccine products ready for market – but were driven out of plain sight due to controversy.
To bring attention to the attempt to drug food staples and foster infertility en masse undertaken by major foundations, NGOs and government bodies, Melissa Melton and Aaron Dykes brought to life the products of the future. Unfortunately, they may become a reality unless we lobby against them, demand transparency and proper labeling of our food, and opt out of their marketplace.
“Philanthropic” causes looking after the global good, including the Rockefeller Foundation and Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, began funding the development of edible vaccines as far back as 1996. Ostensibly, this is to allow the poor and developing sectors of the world easy access to medicine in their food supply. A quick (and profitable) fix to save the world!
In the real world, this is a dark twist on the old adage “Let your food be your medicine, and your medicine be your food.”
Private vaccine developers have worked aggressively to develop these genetically-engineered pharmaceuticals and put them on the shelf, hoping they will be part of a multi-billion dollar drug market. Government grants and agency support contributed towards their rapid creation in the first decade of the 20th Century, licensing corn fields and other test crop sites throughout the U.S. midwest and beyond.
Firms like Prodigene and Epicyte were on the cutting edge of this new “pharming” paradigm, which created its own controversy. Prodigene was fined after two of its sites containing experimental drugs for HIV, hepatitis and other serious ailments accidentally contaminated the food supply. Meanwhile, Epicyte raised eyebrows and anxious questions after developing its contraceptive corn, an edible spermicide. Similar varieties have also been developed for edible female contraception.
Would you trust food aid if you knew the United States’ foreign policy had declared “food as a weapon” in the undeclared war of controlling population in your country or one near you?
Would you believe in the bold claims that genetically-engineered enriched foods can deliver necessary nutrition and medicinal treatments, knowing the complications and risks of GMO foods that have already been documented?
Would you eat Pharma Flakes once they are marketed and sold to your family, and land on your kitchen table?
And what if your flakes and other food stocks weren’t even labeled? Would you really know what was in your food? And would you do anything about it if you found out the truth? Would you have eyes to see it for what it was, if it were population control?
