The dark side of science.
AMES, IOWA — Iowa State University researchers are putting flu vaccines into the genetic makeup of corn, which may someday allow pigs and humans to get a flu vaccination simply by eating corn or corn products.
"We're trying to figure out which genes from the swine influenza virus to incorporate into corn so those genes, when expressed, would produce protein," said Hank Harris, professor in animal science and one of the researchers on the project. "When the pig consumes that corn, it would serve as a vaccine."
When I first saw this headline, I thought "The Onion". You know, a joke. But then I realized it's factual, I was at a loss for words. How sick and disturbed are these scientists? Don't they understand the concept of freedom? Doesn't it enter their consciousness in any fashion how deplorably unethical it is to submit a population to vaccinations without their knowledge?
Oh that's right, they don't question such things. They're not allowed to. Every ounce of the questioning ethical philosopher has been educated right out of them.
