Recently we’ve reported on the crony ties between top US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) officials and beverage giant Coca-Cola. New evidence suggests that the cronyism at the CDC goes far deeper.A group calling itself CDC Scientists Preserving Integrity, Diligence, and Ethics in Research (CDC SPIDER) recently submitted a letter to the CDC chief of staff expressing grave concerns about special interest influence being exerted on the agency’s leaders. It’s worth considering what other CDC issues are poisoned by these “outside parties and rogue interests.” Are vaccine manufacturers influencing CDC leaders concerning childhood vaccinations, as we’ve long believed? Are potential whistleblowers being threatened and silenced to protect industry interests? How can we put our children’s health in the hands of an agency that has this level of corruption being reported by its own scientist employees?
Write to your members of Congress and your senators and ask them to launch an investigation into these matters.
Is the CDC corrupt?
