These Are the 7 Words the CDC Can't Use

CDC banned from using 'evidence-based' and 'science-based' on official documents: report

In an astonishing order, the Trump administration has banned the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention from using seven words - including "fetus", "transgender", "diversity" and "science-based" - in any documents used to prepare the agency's budget, The Washington Post has reported.

Policy analysts at the agency were given those instructions during a meeting on Thursday, The Post said, citing people who were there.

Trump administration officials are forbidding officials at the nation's top public health agency from using a list of seven words or phrases - including "fetus" and "transgender" - in any official documents being prepared for next year's budget.

Following the news of the banned words, Twitter was awash with comments from people concerned about a ban on the phrases science-based and evidence-based, while others highlighted fears over the words transgender and diversity being banned - with a board member of the World Professional Association for Transgender Health describing the move as "quite shocking".

CNN reached out to the CDC but hasn't received a response.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the Shillong-Nongstoin-Rongjeng-Tura Road in Shillong on Saturday. He said, "See the record corruption in Meghalaya".

In some instances, the analysts were given alternative phrases. For example, "evidence-based" or "science-based" can be replaced with "CDC bases its recommendations on science in consideration with community standards and wishes". The source said that others at the meeting reacted with surprise when given the list.

Following the news of the banned words, Twitter was flooded with remarks from individuals anxious about a ban on the expressions science-based and confirm based, while others featured feelings of trepidation over the words transgender and assorted variety being banned - with a board individual from the World Professional Association for Transgender Health portraying the move as "very stunning".

"It was very much, 'Are you serious?"

Nearly all the analysts present on Thursday were surprised at the ban on scientific terms. "Our subject matter experts will not lay down quietly - this hasn't trickled down to them yet".
