The Divide Between Science and Politics

This partisan article (found via Betterhumans) examines the way in which the current Republican US administration is blocking the advance of medical science. (Democrats are as dangerous to medical advances, just in different ways). The larger picture is that politicians in general (in the US and abroad) are hindering or blocking scientific research that will lead to longer, healthier lives. We must continue to speak up and oppose this wanton destruction of progress. It is up to us to defend our access to advanced medicine and our future health and longevity!
