Military, University Public Health Scientists Study Chagas Disease In Texas

The New Yorker: America’s War on the Kissing Bug
“…Military science has tightly defined parameters; when it comes to parasitology, only research with practical applications gets funded. [At Army Public Health Command at Joint Base San Antonio], the spectre of risk to personnel — and expensively trained working dogs — meant that a lot of money and attention could be directed toward Chagas. … Military scientists aren’t the only ones working with Chagas in Texas, even if they may be the best funded…” (Smith, 11/20).
