Politics trumps science

An interesting read showing that the Surgeon General is really the biased Nanny General. Once again politics has trumped science.

The Surgeon Generalís Call to Action on skin cancer stated, ďAlthough genetic factors, such as being fair-skinned or having a family history of skin cancer, contribute to a personís risk, the most common types of skin cancer are also strongly associated with exposure to UV radiation.Ē

However, in an interview with the Washington Post, Surgeon General Lushniak admitted they donít actually know the cause.

WP: But we don't know for sure what's causing the increase?

Lushniak: In essence, we really don't. From the epidemiological surveillance perspective, we see the numbers increasing. But in terms of looking at specific [causes] of that, it's still difficult to determine.

Then, the Surgeon General made this ironic jump:

WP: Your report mentions indoor tanning. What role do we believe indoor tanning plays in melanoma? And what more can be done about that? There are state regulations. The FDA has proposed some tighter regulation on tanning beds.

Lushniak: I've got to, as acting surgeon general, call out the facts. And the facts are that indoor tanning is a source of ultraviolet radiation, period.
