This brief essay takes on a topic that returns about 9 billion hits with a Google search on the phrase Why Science Matters. Here, I offer comments that are framed in public health and that dwell on public health sciences. Recently deceased, former Gov. Richard Lamm quipped (in 1986): “The major factors that brought health to mankind were epidemiology, sanitation, vaccination, refrigeration and screen windows.” I agree with Gov. Lamm.
