Are edible vaccines a perfect solution to treating disease in third world countries?

  • Yes , I think that edible vaccines are good for like poor developing countries .

    I believe that Edible Vaccines will be good in poor developing countries and even here in the US. “Edible vaccines hold great promise as a cost-effective, easy-to-administer, easy-to-store, fail-safe and socioculturally readily acceptable vaccine delivery system, especially for the poor developing countries.” Edible vaccines will be good because that way more people will be able to get medicine will they are getting food.“Yet studies carried out in animals over the past 10 years, and small tests in people, encourage hope that edible vaccines can work.” so if the small test has worked on humans that means that if they do a bigger test on humans there is a chance that if they do a bigger test there is a chance that it won't work. “Yet studies carried out in animals over the past 10 years, and small tests in people, encourage hope that edible vaccines can work.”
    Edible Vaccines are good because they are “grown locally and cheaply” so that way lot of people can be having food and they won't have to pay much for the medicine. “The crops could potentially be produced indefinitely without the growers having to purchase more seeds or plants year after year.” The grower are going to have more production because they don’t have to buy more seeds every year. But there's one problem the plants can be contaminated and the people that eat dose can get more sick than they already sick. “And, being edible, the vaccines would require no syringes-which, aside from costing something, can lead to infections if they become contaminated.”

    I think that edible vaccines are a perfect solution for diseases in the third world countries. And being edible the vaccines would require no syringes. But it is also helpful because you would not have to be poked with a needle and plus it will be painless. Also it can be grown anywhere. So if they just hand them the seeds to grow that plant they can just grow it right there where they live at. Like in Africa if they wanted to grow that plant there we can just hand them the seeds to grow the vaccines. It would also save a lot of lives in the third countries.

    I think we should put labels or directions on it to tell them how much to eat of it. To help prevent people from hurting themselves by eating too much of the vaccine.

  • Yes i think we should use edible vaccines because it could help us out a lot in the furture.

    “ I believe that edible vaccines are a perfect solution to treating disease in third world countries .”

    Edible vaccines are fruits and vegetables that can help reduce burden diseases like hepatitis and diarrhea but particularly in developing places. Edible vaccines can also help save lots of lives but if everything goes to plan. Also edible vaccines are very affordable and its very good because in lots of places in development can not afford regular vaccines but they could afford edible vaccines. The plants of the edible vaccines could be grown locally and cheaply but if only they use standard growing methods. As you can see edible vaccines have a lot of potential and can help us out in the future.


    One thing that can happened is that foods they use for edible vaccines like a potato are not eaten raw and cooking it weakens the medicine in it. But they can not only put potatoes in the vaccines they can but bananas and tomatoes.People don't want edible vaccines because some people think that they might run out of resources because of these edible vaccines. But this doesn't means that we could run out of resources because they could just reuse the seeds from the original plant to make more edible vaccines. This are all the reasons why edible vaccines are so controversial.

    Even though that edible vaccines have their downfalls but what really matters is all the good things that edible vaccines can do in the future. It can help save many lives in a very affordable way and also help reduce diseases like hepatitis and diarrhea. In the long run edible vaccines can help benefit us like help stop or reduce lots of stuff in the world.

    Edible vaccines are in plants. They can be grown cheaply and locally which means that they would be available to people that need them. Today traditional vaccines are given by shots. If people want the shot, then they have to be flown long distances which cost a lot of money. If it was in their country they wouldn’t have to go anywhere and it won’t cost as much money.

    The reason I say we should use edible vaccines is so that poor people have access to it and it is inexpensive. Edible vaccines in plants are needle- free. The plants that are used as edible vaccines would not need to be refrigerated and would be low-cost. This would be good because other countries do not have refrigeration, and don’t have that much money.

    Edible vaccines, I believe, can save many lives around the world. Other people disagree it is safer and healthier, but I still believe they can improve human health in poor countries. They can grow these edible vaccines or give them themselves. This will also help kids when they are younger; they won't be afraid of getting a shot with a needle. This can be the healthier and safer way. Edible vaccines avoid people having to pay for syringes while also prevent people getting sick from contaminated needles.

    The plants can be grown locally, and cheaply, using the standard growing methods of a given region. If we gave the countries the seeds then they wouldn’t need to have to buy transportation or more seeds. The crops could potentially be produced without the growers having to purchase more seeds or plants year after year.

    Once the scientific planning is complete, and issues about edible vaccines have been resolved, I believe it will be easy and effective to share this information with many people around the world. Many diseases will be prevented, and many children will live healthier lives.

  • No I do not think that edible vaccines are a good idea.

    Some cons include toxic compounds in edible vaccines, possible allergic reactions, and the risk of attenuate strands changing to pathogenic strains. There is always a chance that someone could get hurt or worse. Also the fact that something could go wrong and the disease transforms to an even worse disease like the bird flu.
    The reason that most scientists gave up on edible vaccines is because they do not know what would happen if a person ate too much or not enough of the fruit. The idea can also be bad because the amount of vaccine made by a plant is low. So even if you eat the whole fruit you won't get the entire vaccine. There is toxins in vaccines so if you have too much the could be very bad.

Oh, man. Edible vaccines would use GMO's, right? That means two substances that are falsely critizied is being put together.
