Why I am Marching: Cormac Taylor

Cormac Taylor is a Professor at the School of Medicine, University College Dublin. 

The recent diversion away from evidence-based discussion of issues of vital public importance is worrying in the extreme. The global climate, vaccination programs and vital research funding are just a few of the areas under threat by vested interests ignoring evidence for self serving reasons. It is akin to the now infamous tobacco lobby’s attempt to discredit the clear link between smoking and lung disease, only on a much greater level. The very fundamentals of modern society are under threat. We must stand up for science, we must stand up for evidence, we must stand up for the truth… we must march!
