I read an article that was very strange, at least according to my understanding of health and wellness.
The National Science Foundation has given a grant to the University of California to experiment with creating edible plants as v@ccines.
“Thanks to a $500,000 grant from the National Science Foundation, researchers are looking to accomplish three goals. First, the team will try to successfully deliver DNA containing mRNA 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.”
Very interesting, right?!
It seems to me that humans, most notably scientists like these, have little to no understanding of how to really use food as medicine.
Transforming vegetables into v@ccine factories may seem like a major leap for science and pharmaceuticals, but it is definitely the wrong direction for health and wellness.
We know that the vast majority of death by C0vid has been attributed to people suffering from co-morbidity factors.
“Comorbidities are a serious health concern because the presence of two or more conditions increases the chances of hospitalization and the risk of death and affects quality of life.”
With that being said, it certainly does make sense to encourage people to eat their vegetables, as this could decrease some of those fatality factors – especially for conditions like hypertension, heart disease, and obesity.
FYI – according to the article, they will be starting the veggie mRNA experimentation trials with spinach and lettuce.
BUT, the truth is, if you want people to actually eat vegetables to reduce their co-morbidity factors, you would NOT turn them into v@ccines.
Instead, you would sauté the spinach with garlic and grass-fed butter. Like this…
Or in the case of lettuce, you would simply combine a great quality olive oil, vinegar, and a couple of pinches of flaky sea salt, and use it as a dressing on a delicious seasonal salad.
Food really can be used as medicine, and I encourage you, as we move forward in these very strange times in human history, to remember to dress up your veggies and make them as delicious as possible.
That’s the BEST medicine.
