Bill Gates, GM, MMR, and ‘they kill children’
I have never liked Bill Gates. In fact I have positively disliked what I have seen of his business practices and attitudes. But this particular quote beggars belief (he’s discussing the connection between the MMR vaccine and autism):
“… [I]t’s an absolute lie that has killed thousands of kids. Because the mothers who heard that lie, many of them didn’t have their kids take either pertussis or measles vaccine, and their children are dead today. And so the people who go and engage in those anti-vaccine efforts — you know, they, they kill children.”

This uninformed emotional blackmail from a mega-rich programmer would be sad if it were not so dangerous. Big Pharma and GM foods are two of the biggest threats to the future of humanity that exist today. Sadly, Gates is as big a fan of Monsanto and GM foods as he is of vaccines. He should stick to overcharging people for over-bloated, buggy, unnecessary software. If he wants to talk about health issues he should learn a bit about health issues first.
‘They kill children’ is simply pathetic.
