An Institutional Form of Murder

More than 40 years into the tragedy of Lyme disease, those of us whose lives have been destroyed by it ask ourselves, “Is this another Tuskegee?” By all accounts, yes. It is an institutional form of murder. An accepted thing…not subject to review.

The CDC Foundation is a pHarma money launderer.

Some staff are intimidated and pressed to do things they know are not right. We have representatives from across the agency that witness this unacceptable behavior. It occurs at all levels and in all of our respective units. These questionable and unethical practices threaten to undermine our credibility and reputation as a trusted leader in public health.

Pat Smith. Really?

Clearly this woman is not seeking any real answers for the victims she claims to serve, because she knows what the disease is and yet refuses to talk about it. She proved as much by claiming to have gotten LYMErix off the market. Now she’s sitting on a DoD panel and doling out federal grants. TO WHOM IS SHE GRANTING RESEARCH DOLLARS?

Spiritual Activism

People inherently believe that they are good and righteous, and the unfortunate truth is that they are mostly too self-centered to realize that they actually suck. Still, if we put ourselves in the abandoners’ shoes, would we have passed the same judgment, or would we have been a comfort to them in their illness?
