    Journals: The Guardian: US asks scientific journals to censor bird flu studies
    Submitted by J.W. Bizzaro; posted on Wednesday, December 21, 2011 (1 comment)

    "The US National Science Advisory Board for Biosecurity asked the two journals to publish redacted versions of studies by two research groups that created forms of the H5N1 avian flu that could easily jump between ferrets - typically considered a sign the virus could spread quickly among humans.

    "The journals are objecting to the request, saying it would restrict access to information that might advance the cause of public health."

    In addition, two studies, both composed with the help of government funding, may be censored by the federal government. This is in the name of "national security" and on the worry that bioterrorists could use the data in scientific publications to create an attack. Check this out: Federal government attempting to censor scientific journals (http://www.newsytype.com/14081-federal-censorship/). How about burning and/or erasing any information on the virus as well as destroying any remnants of the virus itself?
