"Reflections of Former Assistant Secretaries for Health"

The government's Healthy People program was started in 1979 during the administration of President Carter to expand health fascism from smokers to the population as a whole. James Mason, Julius Richmond, Edward Brandt Jr., Robert Windom, Philip Lee share their deluded premises and self-congratulatory feelings, Sep. 12, 2000.

"Reflections of Former Assistant Secretaries for Health"

The first, de facto Assistant Secretary for Health was Boisfeuillet Jones, the father of the publisher and CEO of the Washington Post of the same name. The early Surgeon General reports were put out by the National Clearinghouse for Smoking and Health, which was part the Regional Medical Programs established in 1965.

Promoting Health Preventing Disease; Objectives for the Nation came out in November 1980. Isn't it wonderful to live in Bloodsucker Land, where our bloodsucker dictators decree that, by 1990, 60% of physicians must interogate their patients about "stress reduction techniques" and "coping mechanisms," while the bloodsuckers spew their 24/7 stream of lies and defamations and baboon-stupid pseudo-science in our faces.

William H. Foege

CDC Director 1977-1983

William H. Foege is a virologist, but he's a Lasker Syndicate virologist, meaning that he believes infection is only responsible for deaths from acute illnesses. He has helped to kill more people than smallpox because of this deluded belief. He and J. Michael McGinnis are the authors of the specious study of causes of death that was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association in 1993, which the health fascists continue to use as their rationalization for meddling in peoples' lives.

J. Michael McGinnis

Assistant Secretary for Health 1965-69 and 1992-97

Lee returned again during the Clinton Administration's Lasker-initiated push for a national health care program. Anti-smoking warhorses Lisa Bero and Stanton Glantz are on the staff at Lee's Institute for Health Policy Studies at UCSF.
