CDC Comments on Disease

Sometimes I think the national Center for Disease Control has forgotten just what a disease is. They were a major backer of that bit about tobacco, and seem to be a driving force behind obesity control, neither of which have anything like a microbial, bacterial or viral agent. cheapodrugs.com

So it’s good to see that they actually have something to say about avian flu. In this Scientific American article CDC director Gerberding is quoted as saying repeatedly “We have only one enemy, and that is complacency.”

Perhaps public complacency is the foreseeable result when a critical agency like the CDC ignores it’s primary mission to take on the cause de jure?
