An Italian scientist, who is a proponent of alternative medicine, has come out with a bizarre claim that vaccines can turn people to homosexuality.
Gian Paolo Vanoli, who is a scientist, journalist and opponent of vaccinations, said that vaccinating children could make them turn towards homosexuality as the mercury and other substances in the vaccine can enter the brain.
Despite declaring that homosexuality was a disease, Vanoli, 70, said that he was not against homosexuality and supported same-sex marriages. Speaking with Vice Italy's Matthew Lenardon, Vanoli added that he does not blame gays for their 'illness' but said that when the gays have children, they pass on that trait to their offspring.
"But we have to say that it's an illness, something that does not respect the order of life. One of the main causes is represented by vaccines, which go against life, disturbing our mind and our spirit. The proof of that is the big increase in the number of homosexuals. Since mass vaccination began, this is the result", he said.
