Bill Gates: Vaccine-autism link 'an absolute lie'
CNN International ^ | February 4, 2011 | Sanjay Gupta/Bill Gates

Posted on 02/07/2011 6:16:02 AM PST by pillut48

Davos, Switzerland (CNN) -- Microsoft founder Bill Gates sat down recently with CNN Chief Medical Correspondent Sanjay Gupta in Davos, Switzerland. The billionaire philanthropist was attending the World Economic Forum to push his mission of eradicating polio by 2012. Gates, through his foundation, also pledged $10 billion to provide vaccinations to children around the world within a decade.

Gupta asked Gates for his thoughts about the alleged autism-vaccine connection. He also asked: Who holds ultimate accountability for the billions of dollars being spent on aid? Is a certain amount of corruption and fraud expected? Below is an excerpt of their conversation.

Dr. Sanjay Gupta: Ten billion dollars [pledged] over the next 10 years to make it "the year of the vaccines." What does that mean exactly?

Bill Gates: Over this decade, we believe unbelievable progress can be made, in both inventing new vaccines and making sure they get out to all the children who need them. We could cut the number of children who die every year from about 9 million to half of that, if we have success on it. We have to do three things in parallel: Eradicate the few that fit that profile -- ringworm and polio; get the coverage up for the vaccines we have; and then invent the vaccines -- and we only need about six or seven more -- and then you would have all the tools to reduce childhood death, reduce population growth, and everything -- the stability, the environment -- benefits from that.

As the mother of 3 young children, this issue came up for me and my husband when it came time for vaccinations and immunizations. My husband is from India and has seen the damage diseases can do, especially to children, so we had no problem making the decisions to get all 3 of our kids complete vaccinations/immunizations...I have also heard horror stories online over the years regarding folks who chose NOT to immunize, and then had some tragic results. :-(

I wonder if Bill Gates were *forced* to give some of his billions to 'help' other people (ie Obama's ultimate plan), would it seem as charitable as the man donating so much money to charities and causes like this *of his own free will*? Capitalism works, Obama! And there can be wonderful side benefits as well!

Bill Gates needs to read a book called, “The Vaccination Crisis”.

BIll Gates is no philantrophist. He invests wisely.

Less useless eaters, more resources for the select few.

Vacccines are not the problem. Adjuvants to vaccines are.

The perp scientist who published the original study has been shown to have cooked the books, was paid by trial lawyers to do so, and no one ever could duplicate his work.

His work was so bad his medical license has now been suspended in the UK.

MindBender26 you got this spot on correct.

To all, regardless of position on this subject, investigate the low life scum who started this lie.

I hope no children died because some people listened to this maggot. Unfortunately, I know children did die from lack of vaccinations.

People should indeed read The Vaccination Crisis.

Then run right out and get every vaccination they can for themselves and their families.

That book is an absurd fairy tale.

Eradicate the few that fit that profile -- ringworm and polio

Ringworm? WTH? It's a fungal infection of the skin. I've got an idea, Bill. Quit trying to wipe out jock itch, and focus on bringing an end to malaria or hookworm, would ya?

Well, first you have to convince a large corporation that you own a Disk Operating System. Then you have to weasel the rightful owners of it to sell it to you without them finding out that a large corporation wants to buy it. Of course you’ll need a real engineer to develop a desk top computer that will run it and hope that someone at another large corporation finds no use for “ordinary” people to have computers.

The idea that vaccines cause autism shows that we as a species have not progressed that far away from witch doctors. You see it a lot, people discount the obvious and believe any charlatan that comes up with an elaborate story. Global warming, vaccines are bad, 9/11 Trutherism, UFOs, thousands more.

Thimerosal and mercury has been linked to all kinds of health problems. Many of the most vocal opponents of vaccinations are doctors, and many will not even administer them.

Vaccinations have even been linked to many diseases including Crohn’s.

I’m kinda on the fence on this (mostly because I haven’t done any research myself and frankly I don’t trust either side). But if either of you or anyone else in the pro-vaccine camp would be so kind as to answer a question—

Has any good research been done regarding metal toxicity in vaccines? Specifically what are the effects on children?

Vacccines are not the problem. Adjuvants to vaccines are.

That's my understanding too. So technically what Gates says about vaccines/autism is correct. He just leaves out the major issue: adjuvants. Too bad he's not addressing that.

Why is it witchdoctorism?

Again, I am not on either side here, but the argument I’ve heard sounds entirely reasonable to me as a working hypothesis:

Basically, that the metals used in vaccines can build up and cause toxicity among individuals who for whatever reason cannot expel such toxins easily.

No wonder you're so misinformed, your source is 1000% anti-vaccine.
The current lead story is "Influenza vaccine sends children into convulsions" - written by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger.
So you're making life and death decisions for your children based on info written by the "Health Ranger?"

There is definitely a link between milk and childhood diabetes. The problem is, no one knows which child is prone to get it and which won't. I think the vaccines maybe the same type of thing.

Personally, I think it's the homogenized milk that causes the problems, not raw milk.

They’ve also found a link between some autism and low vitamin D. They’ve had very good results with some children once their vitamin D level is raised.

Mercury was removed from most vaccines years ago. So there are not any studies that have stood up to scrutiny and peer review.

“Bill Gates: Vaccine-autism link ‘an absolute lie’”

And Bill Gates is correct. The person who created the vaccination autism link has admitted to making it up.

How many kids died or were harmed because their parents believed this garbage and didn't vaccinate the kids?

So it was. But aluminum phosphate and aluminum hydroxide are still very commonly used in vaccines--and aluminum has some potential toxicity problems as well.

B and his buddies are intent of cutting down drastically on population - and they think THEY are the ones to decide who lives, sho dies. I've heard that the have the number, in millions, of how many must 'go.'

And millions sterilized, unknowing, through vaccines. These cretins really do think they have, not just the right, but the duty to to this.

Mercury is still used as a preservative in most readily available flu vaccines. These are still recommended to pregnant women and children over the age of 6m.

Excerpt: “The CDC’s results are based on a 2006 study conducted on approximately 3,000 eight year olds throughout the United States; and are consistent with the findings published by the American Academy of Pediatrics this past October. The new statistics are a 57% increase from the CDC’s last study conducted in 2002 and a 600% increase over the past 20 years. “

http://blog.nj.com/helpinghands/2009/12/eden_autism_services_reviews_c.html

If you put a chart for this increase along side a chart for the increase in the number of vaccines now given babies and toddlers (used to be around 3-5 and is now over 30) they are identical.

And yet, the latest report says it’s not vaccine related, but geneic.

Genetic? Did everyones genes suddenly go haywire? If it were genes, there would not be this explosion of cases. These little ones are having live viruses and MERCURY and ALUMINUM pumped into their tiny bodies. Mercuty and Aluminum are known toxins to the brain.

A fair question to be sure. But probably less people that benefit from selling vaccines, no? I mean, when you start to see vaccines against STDs (Gardasil), mostly harmless diseases like chicken pox, and ones of questionable utility (are newborns really at that much risk of Hep B?), that's also worth a raised eyebrow or two.

Of course they’re life and death decisions. You should really do some research into what ingredients (including mercury: which your body cannot break down) are in vaccinations.

Direct injection into the bloodstream of poisons like mercury cannot be broken down. Autism is now effects less than 1 in 250 children when 40 years ago it was less than 1 in 1000. Infant vaccinations piled on one another is the reason.

Unfortunately, I don’t have one. However, the man who admitted the fraud did so in court in the UK, and IIRC was mentioned as the man who had all the original data that this autism/vaccine link has been based on.

I’m sure someone else will jump in with a link.

Exactly. Bill Gates has succumbed to the dreaded Hollywood disease, which makes one say, “I am famous, ergo, I am superknowledgeable.”

While I know the anti-vaccine trend is based on lies, I also know that Gates is not any sort of medical expert. Maybe he’s been hanging out with that other great medical expert, the FLOTUS, the one who specializes in diet and exercise.

Regardless of the vaccine...

Bill Gates has no credibility, just like Ted Turner and people just shouldn’t take him seriously anymore. He is on the fast track to the Soro’s, Masoori level of evil.

The overall problem with vaccines is nobody knows the truth about any of this and I certainly wouldn’t put it past the UN, progressives, et al to engineer a vaccine that does more harm than good on purpose all under the guise of saving the planet.
