  1. The FDA is a vestigial remnant of better days and now exists to throttle the competitors of large corporations.

  2. A man who created vaccines that saved millions is a blessing from god and yet religious anti-vaxxers condemn him for that?

Why is the injection of chemicals agents into the body that literally changes the Rna of that person not worth studying in adults through a normal testing period. Yet, less than 1 year after being put into use, the corporations want to inject the least affected by the sickness and say it’s for public safety. Just stop to think this through, there are reasons the scientific process takes years.
