Just The News brings a review of a John Solomon podcast: Michael Fumento on the recent history of medical alarmism. With the subtitle, ‘The public health service rewards people who are grotesquely wrong.’.
Fumento said that Robert Redfield, now the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, once estimated that the chance of getting aids between a male and a female having sex could be 50% per contact.
“I don’t think it’s coincidence that that totally irresponsible guy later was promoted to the head of the Centers for Disease Control,” Fumento said. “That’s how he got promoted — through being an alarmist. That’s basically how you move up the ladder in today’s public health system.”
But that’s not all. The article is worth a read.
