Seven words you can't use in CDC budget proposals

You may remember George Carlin's riff on the FCC's banned words list for television. Looks as though our current administration has created its list for the nation's public health agency.  See the article below:

After all, if you can't trust science on climate change, why trust them about medicine--I note that "faith-healing" is not a banned term.

Shame on you, Cole. All but two of those words (the two wordish-like things with the horizontal bar in the middle) are BBIIGGGG words. And the other one is icky. And I can't wait for the Dept. of Agriculture to publish their first study on baby-boy-cows-to-be. Oh well. It's entertaining.
