Vaccines in your salad? Scientists growing medicine-filled plants to replace injections

RIVERSIDE, Calif. — Vaccinations can be a controversial subject for many people, especially when it comes to injections. So what if you could replace your next shot with a salad instead? Researchers at the University of California-Riverside are working on a way to grow edible plants that carry the same medication as an mRNA vaccine.

The COVID-19 vaccine is one of the many inoculations which use messenger RNA (mRNA) technology to defeat viruses. They work by teaching cells from the immune system to recognize and attack a certain infectious disease. Unfortunately, mRNA vaccines have to stay in cold storage until use or they lose stability. The UC-Riverside team says if they’re successful, the public could eat plant-based mRNA vaccines — which could also survive at room temperature.

Thanks to a $500,000 grant from the National Science Foundation, researchers are now looking accomplish three goals. First, the team will try to successfully deliver DNA containing mRNA vaccines into plant cells, where they can replicate. Next, the study authors want to show that plants can actually produce enough mRNA to replace a traditional injection. Finally, the team will need to determine the right dosage people will need to eat to properly replace vaccinations.

“Ideally, a single plant would produce enough mRNA to vaccinate a single person,” says Juan Pablo Giraldo, an associate professor in UCR’s Department of Botany and Plant Sciences, in a university release.

“We are testing this approach with spinach and lettuce and have long-term goals of people growing it in their own gardens,” Giraldo adds. “Farmers could also eventually grow entire fields of it.”

Plants are capable of growing more vaccines

Giraldo and a team of scientists from UC-San Diego and Carnegie Mellon University say the key to making edible vaccines are chloroplasts. These are small organs inside plant cells which help convert sunlight into energy.

“They’re tiny, solar-powered factories that produce sugar and other molecules which allow the plant to grow,” Giraldo explains. “They’re also an untapped source for making desirable molecules.”

Previous studies have shown that it’s possible for chloroplasts to express genes which are not a natural part of that plant. Giraldo’s team accomplished this by sending genetic material inside of a protective casing into plant cells.

In the new study, Giraldo teamed with UC-San Diego’s Professor Nicole Steinmetz to use nanotechnology to deliver more genetic material into chloroplasts.

“Our idea is to repurpose naturally occurring nanoparticles, namely plant viruses, for gene delivery to plants,” Steinmetz says. “Some engineering goes into this to make the nanoparticles go to the chloroplasts and also to render them non-infectious toward the plants.”

“One of the reasons I started working in nanotechnology was so I could apply it to plants and create new technology solutions. Not just for food, but for high-value products as well, like pharmaceuticals,” Giraldo adds.


  1. Why can’t they just leave us alone and leave our, food, drinks water alone. We aren’t bothering them so stop bothering we the people. Stop playing God, and stay out of our lives. What they are doing is just plain evil. Everyone involved in this evil plan show go before a military tribunal and be locked away in Gitmo for the rest of their lives

    1. The more people that become aware of the dangers of this, the less likely it will happen, so tell everyone you know.

    2. You’re absolutely right. Makes me wonder if they’re already putting it in livestock and chickens etc which would make our eggs also full of their poison.

  3. If people ingest these products who have already had shots or eat multiple salads, aren’t they afraid that some people could overdose? A person could also unknowingly be allergic to something in this form of vacs and could get into serious trouble. Who will take responsibility in either event? Lawyers will be lining up.

  4. We already hear that we are developing resistance to antibiotics through over-use. Now, They are trying to introduce this into consumable plants. But how is it quantified? Are you encouraged to limit yourself to one lettuce every 3 months? If I feed my lettuce to my chickens, will they pass it into their eggs? If the caterpillars eat my lettuces and the birds eat the caterpillars and the bird dies and decomposes, will the mutation spread to the decomposition moulds and the feeding insects? This could potentially spread through the entire food chain. 😳

    1. You’re right. But since when have the pharmaceutical companies ever given a rip about health? It’s always been about the bottom line, and control over the masses. They are either the very Nazi scientists who should have swung at Nuremberg or their descendants or protojays. Now they TELL you when they plan to release a virus and scare you into getting tested when you have no symptoms, with a worthless PCR test which produces false positives and false negatives as they increase the cycles. The creator of PCR has warned they were never intended to be used as a test for a virus. Trainloads of these loaded “tests” were shipped worldwide before the plandemic so that spike proteins could be introduced into the poor, misinformed fools who submitted to them, and who would subsequently be eliminated by them.

      Fauci, who greatly enriched himself via the swine flu hoax and “vaccine”has done the same process again. He learned from his trial run what to do and not to do to gain wealth and power. He openly told the world that there would be a “surprise pandemic “ during the Trump administration. Bill Gates (of Hell) announced “Pandemic II” would follow “pandemic I” which he had also “prophetically” announced in Event 201. The entire sinister plandemic had been spelled out in detail by predictive programming using Hollywood entertainment.

      1. I clicked on your link, Living Faith. I urge you to read your Bible and ask God for truth. And, test ALL spirits. You do not want Jesus to say to you, “. . .I never knew you; depart from Me, you workers of lawlessness!” Matthew 7:23

  5. These people need to be arrested for crimes against humanity that think it is okay to poison people because of greed.

  6. just when you think the world couldn’t get any more effed up..

    pretty soon I won’t even be able to eat food at the store.

    I mean it’s already poisoned but damn this is just pure evil.

  7. Evil psychopaths rule the world. All they want to do is subjugate nature in all its forms. Until every last human, animal and plant is controlled by them. Fuck “The Science ™️.”

  8. More BS as usual. Hopefully the deepstate will be hung drawn n quartered long before and I f that nonsense hits the markets. These scientists playing God and tampering with nature need locking up and the key thrown away. Introducing this type of biotech to natural ecosystems (a farmers field for eg.) runs the risk of cross-pollinating the natural species of plants; and once that occurs there is no going back to the original God-given fauna. What lunacy is is?! Every generation after will be contaminated forever – a Luciferian dystopian world.
