We urgently need new drugs, diagnostics, and vaccines for these new Anthropocene-driven diseases. Our recent finding that these infections now mostly strike people who live in poverty in large and wealthier G20 economies – a concept known as ‘blue marble health’ – indicates that the problem is not necessarily the lack of financial resources, but instead the inability to mobilize those resources appropriately. Under the auspices of a new Science Tikkun framework there is opportunity to create a new movement linking research and development (R&D) with public engagement in order to advocate for this essential support and create new products in a modern geopolitical context.

A recent large-scale study we conducted using 12 years of FDA data reveals that the concerned citizen is frequently a drug company raising frivolous or questionable claims in a last-ditch effort to hold off competition.
