(NaturalNews) Not even a day seems to go by anymore without some whack job in academia, a public health department or even the entertainment industry spewing pseudoscientific nonsense in defense of vaccines, pharmaceuticals or government-run healthcare. And the year 2015 was notably saturated with more than its fair share of bad science outbursts by some very well-recognized names in popular culture, which we’ve highlighted here for you as part of Natural News‘ annual Bad Science Awards, 2015 Edition:
1) Bill Gates. This Microsoft co-founder-turned-vaccine-pushing “humanitarian” has turned Third World healthcare into his own personal business venture. The Bill Gates-run Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is notorious for invading low-income regions of the world and pushing patented “medicine,” rather than sound nutrition, as the solution to everything from poverty and disease to terrorism and even climate change.
It’s no secret that Bill Gates has a dog in the fight when it comes to promoting vaccines as the solution to fighting infectious disease outbreaks – the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation owns patents on many of the vaccines he believes should be forced on children across the globe. But he’s also made numerous statements indicating support for mass sterilization, population reduction and population control using the very same vaccines he dubiously claims will increase the lifespans of the unfortunate.
Here’s what Gates had to say early on in 2015 when asked what he personally thinks has been most effective at improving quality of life in the Third World:
“Vaccines make the top of the list,” he responded glibly, making no mention whatsoever of nutrition and improved sanitation techniques. “Being able to grow up healthy is the most basic thing.”
This is exactly why the independent scientific community opposes chemical-laden, never-been-properly-safety-tested vaccine jabs, Mr. Gates.
2) Melinda Gates. Not to be outdone by her husband, Melinda Gates offered her own opinionated insights about vaccines in 2015 that not only defy the historical record, but also show how little she knows (or is willing to admit to) concerning the effectiveness of certain childhood vaccines.
During a January interview with HuffPost Live, Gates had this to say about how much she believes in the effectiveness of the MMR vaccine for measles, mumps and rubella, which also in 2015 was exposed as an absolute fraud that definitively increases the risk of autism in young children, and particularly young African-American boys:
“We’ve forgotten what measles deaths look like,” Gates lamented, apparently unaware of the fact that in the real world, measles is no more threatening than the childhood rite of passage known as chickenpox. People in poor countries, she added, “will walk 10 kilometers in the heat with their child and line up to get a vaccine because they have seen death.”
Melodrama much, Mrs. Gates?
3) Neil deGrasse Tyson. It’s hard to believe that this academic failure-turned-celebrity propagandist is taken seriously by anyone with so much as half a brain.…
