  • NIH and CDC should strive and seek for a new funding

    Jeffrey Mervis wrote an article entitled “Lawmakers ask NIH and CDC charities for more on donors” (1). Although I don’t like the contradictory policy of MEXT (Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology) in Japan, MEXT can obtain annual profit of $0.18 billion to $0.3 billion dollars through TOTO soccer lottery (2). MEXT governing national education does not promote gambling to people in Japan but MEXT gains money from gambles of lottery. NIH and CDC can also obtain money by the future lottery for possible funding.
