Health Experts Are Quitting The NIH & CDC En Masse Because Of ‘Bad Science’

Health experts at America’s top public health agencies are quitting in droves because poor decision-making, described by staff as ‘bad science,’ has led to low morale according to Johns Hopkins University professor Dr. Marty Makary.

Makary, a top public-health expert at Johns Hopkins University who writes at Common Sense, says one senior FDA official lamented “people are getting bad advice and we can’t say anything.”

The ‘bad science’ included the vaccinating of children under 5 to ‘make their advice palatable to the White House’ according to doctors.

Dr Makary says that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) are now all suffering staff shortages.

The Mail Online reports: Major decisions made by the agencies that hurt morale included support for masking in schools, school closures during the pandemic and the authorization of COVID-19 vaccines for children four and under.

Both agencies, along with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have been mired in controversy throughout the pandemic for inconsistent messaging and for decision-making that didn’t seem to line up with available science.

They have no leadership right now. Suddenly, there’s an enormous number of jobs opening up at the highest level positions,’ an anonymous NIH scientist told Common Sense.

Schools became a battleground of the COVID-19 pandemic in America.

When the virus stormed the world in 2020, many officials immediately shut things down – schools, retail stores, entertainment venues, restaurants – out of an fear of the unknown.

Initial data showed children suffered limited risk when they contracted the virus, though, and that it was mainly the elderly and severely immunocompromised that bore the virus’s burden.
