Here's What Bill Gates, One Of The World's Richest And Smartest Men, Is Afraid Of

Jun 1, 2015 By Serena Hayes
It is human nature to be concerned about family, the economy and healthcare. We require basic human needs to survive: food, water and shelter. But, now, the future of humanity as a whole has been added to that list of concerns. Global warming, nuclear war and super-intelligent computers are mostly discussed when asked "What does humanity fear?" However, in a recent interview with Ezra Klein, Editor-in-Chief at Vox Media, tech giant Bill Gates explains why he is more afraid of a global pandemic than that of a nuclear war.

Gates suggests that the U.S. government begin investing money in research and medical surveillance. This decision would not only be more economical but would make sure we are better prepared for the next epidemic, which he anticipates will be sooner than later.
