Subject: Gates Foundation and the Helsinki Declaration
I am a trustee of Natural Solutions Foundation, the largest “netroots” health
freedom NGO. This email is to comment upon the below media article, “Flying
Syringe” about the Gates Foundation’s most recent Grand Challenges Awards and
our concern that your organization is not paying enough attention to the
ethical requirements of the Declaration of Helsinki of the World Medical
Association – http://www.wma.net/e/policy/pdf/17c.pdf
The Natural Solutions Foundation, founded in 2004, is an international NGO
(Non Governmental Organization) focused on health freedom. We are active and
registered in several countries and the Foundation is a not for profit 501(C
)(3) tax exempt organization in the United States.
The Mission of the Foundation is to discover, develop, demonstrate and
disseminate natural solutions to the problems facing us and threatening our
health and freedom, achieving and maintaining a healthy self, community and
world. Since its founding the Natural Solutions Foundation has pursued a
vigorous program on many fronts, including natural solutions to significant
social problems involving health and wellness. We have over one hundred eighty
thousand people on our supporter list. The threats to health and freedom are
both domestic and international, as are the solutions. Individuals and other
organizations are welcome to participate in our many programs and action
options so that net roots and decision makers share the same information and
conclusions about the solutions to problems touching us all.
Our main web sites are: www.GlobalHealthFreedom.org and
The Helsinki Declaration absolutely forbids “treating” people without their
informed consent. It further forbids “experimental” treatments without fully
informing people of side effects. There are a number of other provisions of
the Declaration that might also apply to to the act of releasing genetically
modified mosquitoes for the purpose of involuntarily “vaccinating” people.
The Natural Solutions Foundation and its Trustees, Maj. Gen. Bert Stubblebine
(USA ret), Rima E. Laibow, MD and myself, would be pleased to enter into a
dialogue with the Gates Foundation about the ethical issues involved with
involuntary or mandated vaccinations.
We also seek to “explore bold and largely unproven ways to improve global
health” and have dedicated our International Decade of Nutrition to that end,
by seeking to educate Congress, Codex Alimentarius (the world food code) and
decision makers about natural solutions to pressing health needs.
We are currently sponsoring advanced food production interventions in Benin
and in Panama, aimed at providing natural solutions to diseases and conditions
that limit food production. WHO and FAO consider under nutrition to be a major
cause of preventable disease.
Similarly, we seek to discover and disseminate advanced alternatives to the
use of dangerous vaccinations that are considered uninsurable risks by the
insurance industry. I am sure you are aware of the US Vaccine Injury
Compensation Program, a special tax that parents pay in addition to the cost
of vaccines, which allows the pharmaceutical industry to continue to provide
vaccinations without insurance coverage.
To this end, we are seeking a Grand Challenges Award in addition to initiating
an ethical dialogue with the Gates Foundation. Please forward the appropriate
Award application forms to me, and please provide me with the coordinates of
the appropriate ethical affairs staff member of the Gates Foundation.

‘Flying syringe’ mosquitoes, other ideas get Gates funding
WASHINGTON (AFP) The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation awarded
100,000 dollars each on Wednesday to scientists in 22 countries
including funding for a Japanese proposal to turn mosquitoes into
“flying syringes” delivering vaccines.
The charitable foundation created by the founder of software giant
Microsoft said in a statement that the grants were designed to
“explore bold and largely unproven ways to improve global health.”
The grants were awarded for research into preventing or curing
infectious diseases such as HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis and limiting
the emergence of drug resistance.
They are the first round of funding for the Gates Foundation’s “Grand
Challenges Explorations,” a five-year 100-million-dollar initiative
to “promote innovative ideas in global health.”
The funding was directed to projects that “fall outside current
scientific paradigms and could lead to significant advances if
successful,” the Gates Foundation statement said.
“We were hoping this program would level the playing field so anyone
with a transformational idea could more quickly assess its potential
for the benefit of global health,” said Tachi Yamada, president of
global health at the Gates Foundation.
The Gates Foundation said 104 grants were awarded from nearly 4,000
proposals. The recipients included universities, nonprofit
organizations, government agencies, and six private companies.
“It was so hard for reviewers to champion just one great idea that we
selected almost twice as many projects for funding as we had
initially planned,” Yamada said.
Among the proposals receiving funding was one from Hiroyuki Matsuoka
at Jichi Medical University in Japan.
“(Matsuoka) thinks it may be possible to turn mosquitoes that
normally transmit disease into ‘flying syringes,’ so that when they
bite humans they deliver vaccines,” the Gates Foundation said.
It said Pattamaporn Kittayapong at Mahidol University in Thailand
received a grant to “explore new approaches for controlling dengue
fever by studying bacteria with natural abilities to limit the disease.”
Founded in 1994, the Seattle, Washington-based Gates Foundation is
the largest private philanthropical organization in the world.
