Science: Next Year's Flu Vaccine Controversy
Next year's flu vaccine may be artifical (synthetic) rather than organic, according to a 60 Minutes segment on controversial scientist Craig Venter. The pilot is already in the works (here). I'm almost sure that someone will object to this being used on their kids, given how reactionary parents are about scientific experimentation etc. The fact that it's being done by a private pharmaceutical company just seals the deal.
