A new front in the war on science opens....

Apparently a new front in the War on Science has opened, the War on Epidemiology discussed here and here.

Too many are unable to conceive that a 21st century government would conduct the War on Epidemiology. They are unable to believe that those charged with the maintenance of the public welfare would repeatedly and consistently ignore the advice of medical experts in the service of a narrow sectarian religious dogma. That is why the Bush Administration and its army of mindless Uruk-hai have been successful: the willful ignorance of many–not a few, many–good men (and women) who psychologically can not confront any evidence that suggests those who are supposed to lead us are only worthy of our disdain and contempt.

That the CDC is muffled by the Administration isn't exactly news here. I fondly remember the World Conference on Injury Prevention and Control, where the programme contained a statement noting that no funds from the CDC were used in any sections promoting gun control. Free speech is apparently unidirectional if you're funded by the State.

The use of anti-biotic agents in just about every home cleaning product and in agriculture is scary. For some reason makes me think of the Daleks -- resistance is futile! :)

We are the Borg. We will add your biological and technological distinctiveness to our own. Your culture will adapt to service us. Resistance is futile

Sounds a wee bit like Hollywood's modus operandi a wee bit doesn't it?
