    Return to 1984 Censorship?

    The Washington Post reports that the Trump administration is prohibiting the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) from using a list of seven words or terms in any documents being prepared for next year’s budget request. The words/terms include: vulnerable, entitlement, diversity, transgender, fetus, evidence-based and science-based. CDC’s website states: “CDC conducts critical science and provides health information that protects our nation against expensive and dangerous health threats, and responds when these arise.” Reaction by the public community to the Post story was swift according to the Associated Press, because it could impact on public health research and policy in all fields of biological science and medicine. The reactions of some, like Oregon’s Senator Jeff Merkley (D), have compared the policy statement to something out of Orwell’s 1984. What do you think?
  2. President-elect Donald Trump has nominated Representative Tom Price (R-GA) an orthopedic surgeon to serve as incoming Secretary of Health and Human Services. Aside from having a major role in health care reform, Price will head the agency which oversees budget and policy for the National Institutes of Health, the Centers for Disease Control and the Food and Drug Administration, among other health agencies. He will have an enormous impact on the future of biomedical research and policy ranging from the Brain Initiative to stem cell research. A news article in Nature analyzes these issues. What are your thoughts?
