Dr. Barbara Bowman was director of CDC’s division for heart disease and stroke prevention. In this role she was responsible with providing public health leadership. She no longer has this role as she has resigned. The reason she has resigned is because she has been caught out offering guidance to a leading Coca Cola advocate who was trying to influence world health authorities on sugar and beverage policy matters.
According to Huffington Post Bowman’s connections with Coca Cola go back a long way. A former top Coca Cola executive and strategist Alex Malaspina with the help of Coca Cola founded the controversial industry group International Life Sciences Institute (ILSI). Bowman also worked as a senior nutritionist for Coca Cola and co-authored a book called Present Knowledge in Nutrition as a publication of ILSI.
Ursula Bauer is Bowmans boss and Director of National Centre for chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion. Bauer has said the situation “serves as an important reminder of the old adage that if we don’t want to see it on the front page of the newspaper then we shouldn’t do it.”
There we have the problem. Bauer is more concerned about being caught and in the news than doing what is morally right for protection of the people. These people care too much for their own jobs than doing their job therefore their main job becomes protecting/keeping their job. Many higher level ex staff of companies who rely on the CDC or FDA ends up with jobs in the CDC or FDA. This is to promote the company they used to work for whether the company is doing the right thing or not. Just think why is there ex pharmaceutical company employees employed as heads of the FDA? Now think how many drugs get pushed through the FDA’s process and how many researchers get caught falsifying trials of ‘patented’ drugs. These are the same people telling us vaccines are safe. It’s not because they are safe but because money talks. We also have been told Monsanto’s glyphosate is safe even though many countries are banning its use. We have also been told Monsanto’s GMO seeds are safe and good even though many countries are banning them.
Remember back in the day when the CDC said smoking didn’t harm us and doctors came on TV ads promoting smoking? Well now they’re telling us sugar is good and vaccines are safe.
