" CDC misled District residents about lead levels in water, House
probe finds" Washington post 5/20/10

" The nation's premier public health agency knowingly used flawed
data to claim that high lead levels in the District's drinking water
did not pose a health risk to the public, a congressional
investigation has found. And, investigators determined, the agency has
not publicized more thorough internal research showing that the
problem harmed children across the city and continues to endanger
thousands of D.C. residents. "......

......"The House science and technology subcommittee investigation,
scheduled to be released Thursday, was spurred last year by one
scientist's research and Washington Post reporting suggesting that the
2004 CDC analysis was missing many test results for children who might
have lead poisoning. With its final report, the committee reveals that
the missing data showed clear harm to children from the water -- and
that CDC authors knew the data was flawed. It finds that CDC officials
"failed in their public health duty." ......

Seems like the CDC likes to hide bad data. Vaccine why the CDC has
found them 'perfectly safe"

It does seem that the CDC made some errors in judgment.

I am wondering what kind of pressures and from whom those pressures came
lead to such poor judgment.
