*yawn* but his argument does seem to make a strong point...
that our police-state obsession with bioterrorism countermeasures against so-called bioWMDs such as anthrax, plague, ebola, etc causes neglect of more
important public health concerns like growing antibiotic resistance and spreading hospital infections (ie, C DIFF?).
imo it's intentional and intristic with our government's shoving all this terror crap down our throats, to get us sicker from the negligence of the
real problems that are killing people as they ironically are shelling out $5,000 per night in the hospital - only to contract resistant, strains of C.
diff and God knows what next!
im not familiar with the true effectivities of major public health agencies like the CDC and NIH but i do believe him although his speech comes across
as boring (then again, look who's talkin), its vital points he has made and this should get out to the American sheople...
if its not too late, already.
also, this reminded me of when i worked for USPS there wasn't a day there were daily reports (since 9/11) of residences, business, and non-profit/gov
offices alike all reporting "strange powder" in or on their mail... 99.9% its nothing
Yea, it is amazing how the goverment is obsess over bio- terrorism when it is estimated that we lose 10 to 15 thousand a year in hospitals to super
bug infections. Can you imagine spending the money on cancer research that was spent on say the TSA last year. How much of a difference could we make
in a few years.
