Re : Centers for Disease Control and Prevention: protecting the private good?
This news is disturbing. Across the world, there may be lot more who might be feeling “saddened” to learn of industry funding. People across the world are guided by whatever comes out churned from such institutions like the CDC. Quite frankly, there shouldn't remain any iota of doubt regarding any commission or omission, even if were to happen inadvertently. For the world, such institutions represent the beacons of light, and if that starts becoming doubtful, then the question would certainly arise as to where else to repose the faith and take guidance. Therefore no further commissions or omissions please, as both ways either by promoting or by concealing may be hazardous or unwarranted.
