‘The Centers For Disease Control often places a disclaimer on their recommendations that reads, “CDC, our planners, and our content experts wish to disclose they have no financial interests or other relationships with the manufacturers of commercial products . . . CDC does not accept commercial support.”
This would lead many to believe that the CDC is not prey to industry whimsy and does not receive money from the very companies we the people try so desperately to protect ourselves against. Unfortunately, this disclaimer is something of a fallacy: the CDC does receive money from corporations, and they get it from just about every major corporation in the country.
You may be wondering, “how do they get away with that?” but the answer simple: through their very own foundation that was even approved by Congress.’
