<P>Page 48 ยป In Conversation JASON: An underlying theme to your approach in Congress, regardless of the issue, is to rely on evidence-based policymaking. SLAUGHTER: Absolutely. That is what scientists are taught. That is the most important thing. You know what is factual; you do not have to wonder or have someone else tell you what you know to be fact. For example, science tells us that Staphylococcus aureus has evolved to become methicillin-resistant S. aureus or MRSA, and it can kill you in 24 hours. Thats a fact.

And it is very troubling. We have evidence that says we should really pay better attention here. The world around us is becoming more polluted, which means we need better science for public health and sanita- tion, and in particular a recognition of how important food safety and food security are. Theres much to do. JASON: Preparedness is never an emergency. SLAUGHTER: Yes. KATY: Knowing that many of our readers are young scientists, I think Rep.

Slaughter is the original author of the GENETIC INFORMATION & NON-DISCRIMINATION ACT (GINA), which is now Public Law No. 110-223 In 2007, she was the ?UVWZRPHQWREHFRPH CHAIRWOMAN OF HOUSE COMMITTEE OF
