Our medical system is a "criminal enterprise" and the "vaccine establishment has become a protection racket," according to Jon Rappoport, in a recent opinion piece contributed to The Daily Sheeple.
Rappoport accuses mainstream medicine of perpetuating the myth that vaccines are needed to create healthy children, and of suppressing evidence to the contrary.
"Those who insist on 50 or 60 shots of germs and toxic chemicals for every child, like it or not, are participating in an ongoing criminal enterprise.
"Their vision is unnatural and perverse.
