The Center for Disease Control started out as the malaria war control board based in Atlanta. Partly because the head of Coke had some people out to his plantation, and they got infected with malaria, and partly 'cause all the military recruits were coming down and having a higher fatality rate from malaria while training than in the field.
I agree with people like Richard Dawkins that mankind felt the need for creation myths. Before we really began to understand disease and the weather and things like that, we sought false explanations for them. Now science has filled in some of the realm - not all - that religion used to fill.
Science can lift people out of poverty and cure disease. That, in turn, will reduce civil unrest.
The doctor who diagnosed me with ALS, or motor neuron disease, told me that it would kill me in two or three years.
Maybe I don't have the most common kind of motor neuron disease, which usually kills in two or three years.
I don't have much positive to say about motor neuron disease, but it taught me not to pity myself because others were worse off, and to get on with what I still could do. I'm happier now than before I developed the condition.
Some forms of motor neuron disease are genetically linked, but I have no indication that my kind is. No other member of my family has had it. But I would be in favour of abortion if there was a high risk.
Everything that used to be a sin is now a disease.
Artistic temperament is the disease that afflicts amateurs.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
Let me ask you a question: If you never ate a balanced diet, what would happen to your body? You know the answer: Eventually you'd grow weak; you might even open yourself to serious illness or disease. We all need a balanced diet if we are to stay healthy.
The federal government has sponsored research that has produced a tomato that is perfect in every respect, except that you can't eat it. We should make every effort to make sure this disease, often referred to as 'progress', doesn't spread.
Medicine to produce health must examine disease; and music, to create harmony must investigate discord.
Bigotry is the sacred disease.
Hastiness and superficiality are the psychic diseases of the 20th century, and more than anywhere else this disease is reflected in the press.
But try if you can to support, whether it's AIDS or the cancer foundation, so that someone else might survive, might prosper, and might actually be cured of this dreaded disease.
I feel coming on a strange disease - humility.
Frank Lloyd Wright
My work with AIDS patients started right at the beginning of the epidemic, totally unplanned and spontaneous, as all my work had proceeded in the previous two decades, if it were not already my whole life-style! In the early eighties, we knew very little about this peculiar disease.
Despair often breeds disease.
The disease of an evil conscience is beyond the practice of all the physicians of all the countries in the would.
William E. Gladstone
Whoever grows angry amid troubles applies a drug worse than the disease and is a physician unskilled about misfortunes.
It is the American vice, the democratic disease which expresses its tyranny by reducing everything unique to the level of the herd.
When a lot of remedies are suggested for a disease, that means it can't be cured.
No company is preferable to bad. We are more apt to catch the vices of others than virtues, as disease is far more contagious than health.
Charles Caleb Colton
Well, the most terrible fear that anybody should have is not war, is not a disease, not cancer or heart problems or food poisoning - it's a man or a woman without a sense of humor.
Medical science has proven time and again that when the resources are provided, great progress in the treatment, cure, and prevention of disease can occur.
Michael J. Fox
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
John F. Kennedy
