    Well if that proves to be true he has a lot to answer for, that is medieval.

    I'd say this was third world scoundrels trying to extort money from an innocent well-meaning benefactor...

    If I wasn't familiar with his software.

    And past Microsoft business practices.

    Yeah I was hesitant to come to Microsoft defense as a Linux man :) but all things considered, I think Bill Gates is a pretty decent bloke. I can't imagine he would do something like that on purpose.

    Judges in India's Supreme Court have demanded answers after children died during a controversial cervical cancer vaccine trial.

    Young tribal girls received shots of pharmaceutical company Merck's Gardasil vaccine and Cervarix, manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline.

    The vaccines are given to girls as young as nine in many countries - including the UK and the US - to protect against the human papilloma virus, one of the major causes of cervical cancer.

    But the Indian court yesterday heard a challenge by campaigners who claim the study - funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation - failed to obtain the informed consent of the children or their parents.

    They say that a 'study' carried out for the foundation by a US organisation was in fact an illegal drugs trial.

    That is pretty messed up, it is not like Bill Gates is strapped for cash and has to cu corners.

    I wonder what the real truth is.

    I'll quote from a previous post:
    We have tested what the results of unsterile vaccine are. Half the innoculated die.

    It is also possible that his non-thimerosal vaccines had too little preservative for tropical conditions, weren't refrigerated, etc.

    About the only way to safely administer vaccines the the tropics is single dose self injecting ampules..

    Well...

    I looked for a second source to the story and got this:
    Anti-vaccination blog revives debunked HPV story
    Anti-vaccination blog revives debunked HPV story

    The government commissioned a group of physicians and researchers to investigate whether the vaccination program caused any deaths. In February 2011, the group reported there was no connection. One girl drowned. Insecticide poisoning killed two others. Two others had severe malaria. One was bitten by a poisonous snake and one died from a disease that physicians said "can not be linked possibly to HPV."
