First of all, I've never taken a flu vaccine, which leads into my lack of knowledge about the creation of such vaccines. But when I stumbled upon Project GreenVax, I was instantly intrigued.

Apparently we have unhatched chicken eggs to thank for our flu-fighting concoctions. Project GreenVax, however, hopes to replace animals with plants, specifically with the tobacco plant. Not only is it more cost-effective, but it'll also save millions of eggs each year. Stats for Tobacco Vaccines Trending: Older & Chilly
