NIH — Follow The Money

Screen Shot 2014-05-25 at 7.52.45 AM

I have some questions about how the NIH sees priorities:

Is it reasonable to spend 6x more on 174. smallpox (0 cases since 1980) than 226. CFS/ME? (1 million people, right now).

Or 141. anthrax — how many cases do you know, personally? Yes, with a few rooms full of specialized equipment and a half-dozen experts in various fields it can be weaponized. Otherwise, it’s “wool sorter’s disease,” and you have to catch it from a sheep. Most years, no one does.

For that matter, $72 million for 140. Adolescent Sexual Activity? What exactly are we accomplishing, there?
