Pan- Epi- En- Demics

I’m more and more often getting the sense these terms are randomly applied.

    As much is to be expected from a country with poor science education.

    I’m at least 83% sure they just invented the differences on a “fun friday” at a CDC lab.

    I’m 100% sure you don’t have a real appreciation for science.

    Also not to be confused with pan-epidurals wherein the government seeks to distribute pregancy pain relief en masse by offering them free of charge to desparate pregnant women, or epipen-demics wherein radical anti-allergists try to alleviate seasonal allergy discomfort by stabbing random people with epipens on the streets.

    I’m 100% sure I can find definitions for the distinctions but in practice they are applied haphazardly enough for there to be no distinction.

    It may be enough to say they share a common theme – ‘Lots of people sicken from a communicable disease’.

    They are never applied haphazardly by any trained individual or scientific organization. You have no idea about what it is you’re talking. Your qualm is with people like yourself who don’t appreciate science.

    If that were true Michael, I wouldn’t have a qualm, would I?

    The spur here at any rate was the misuse of the term epidemic with regard to obesity, which it is not. Even the CDC seems intent on calling it an epidemic.

    You have a qualm with how these terms are misused. How do we know they are being misused? Why, because you have a qualm with them! Genius.

    Of course obesity is an epidemic. You just lack a social conscience.

    Seasonal allergy can be treated by antihistamines and anti-allergy medications. I always take hydroxyzine to stop the sneezing. *’`.’
