Polls show massive decrease in trust in public health institutions

A new round-up of surveys published in the New England Journal of Medicine specifically relates to vaccines but the results reflect a much broader loss of trust in public health institutions.

Jeffrey A. Tucker, the Editorial Director for the American Institute for Economic Research, writes:

As few as 16% and 20% of respondents, respectively, say they have “a great deal/quite a bit” of trust in these organizations to provide accurate information. The public also has only moderate trust in information provided by the Food and Drug Administration.
