How about I say that edible vaccines are really not as bad as you think. Edible vaccines can save lots of lives, four million people die every year from preventable disease and edible vaccines can decrease the number of deaths.10/11 volunteers 91% who ingested the transgenic potatoes had fourfold rises in serum antibodies.19 out of 20 persons showed increases in the serum antibody levels.Edible vaccine technology has been one of the great public health victories.A transgentic lettuce carrying a hepatitis B antigen to 3 volunteers 2 of them displayed a good response.

Are genetically modified vegtables/fruits making us allergic to the vegtable/fruit?
People may develop an allergy to the fruit or vegetable expressing the foreign antigen. It is not clear what will happen when the person comes in contact with the actual virus. The vaccines behavior is not very predictable.
My opponent will try and convince the audience that Edible Vaccines are good. I am here to prove that they are not.
My opponent will try to say that, Edible Vaccines are a great help to our community. But in reality, just simply making these genetically modified foods, is expensive.

But edible vaccines can save lots of lives and really the people we have been testing it has been giving good responses and they can even prevent dieases.

Yes, but the behavior of this is unknown, therefore it's not fully proven. Have you thought about those people who are live in not fully developed countries? Struggling economically to get these Vaccines. That is why so many people die. Most of the people out of the 4 million people, at least 3 million are the ones who cannot get a hold of it.
