    Default Vaccine in GM fruit could wipe out hepatitis B

    Tomatoes and bananas genetically modified to contain hepatitis B vaccine could rid the world of the virus, a leading American scientist said in London yesterday.
    The virus, which causes high fever and attacks the liver, is a precursor of liver cancer, the biggest single cause of cancer deaths.
    ...The vaccine has been held back because the US department of agriculture and the food and drug administration had no licensing mechanism for plant vaccines. "They are working on it and hope to have something up and running in two years," said Prof Arntzen.

    No follow-up until 2014 with a project to engineer vitamin A into bananas. I think we can all sleep well tonight.

    It has been proposed in the past that statins should be added to the water. Thank heavens it came to nothing.

    Generally, hepatitis B goes away on its own. "Most" people who get hep B don't even know they have it. Of those who have symptons, only a small percentage will have any real, chronic problems. Bigger picture: I wonder if any consideration is given to the unintended consequences of genetically modifying food with a vaccine? What are the possible downsides? I think I know the answer.
