Bill Gates has come out and publicly defended vaccinations on American talk show America with Jorge Ramos which aired on January 21.

The multi billionaire and founder of the Microsoft conglomerate was interviewed on his philanthropic vision to end world poverty and ensure a healthy population, which was outlined in the Gates foundation’s annual letter, published last week.

During the interview he cited numerous studies that disproved the link between vaccination and autism.

Mr Gates, who is well known for his charitable acts worldwide, said:

 “Nothing has saved more lives than vaccines, and nothing has been more disproven than any link between vaccines and negative things like autism.”

Among other tangents, Mr Gates also discussed the companies investment in global healthcare, and the production of a thinner, lighter condom.
