"HHS also strongly encourages the use of outcome and evidence data in program evaluations and budget decisions".

But as Harvard Global Health Institute director Dr. Ashish Jha told Stat News, the decision to censor the seven words will likely force staff to self-censor their work.

Instead of "science-based" or "evidence-based", the suggested phrase was "CDC bases its recommendations on science in consideration with community standards and wishes".

Whereas Carlin's "Seven Words You Can Never Say On Television" are the obscenities everyone knows and loves, the seven words the CDC reportedly can't use are: "vulnerable", "entitlement", "diversity", "transgender", "fetus", "evidence-based", and "science based".

Alphabet `X' sells new wireless internet technology to Andhra Pradesh

Federal officials have pushed back against the accusations, with a statement provided to NBC News from a CDC spokesperson saying the assertions "had mischaracterized actual discussions".

Michael Halpern, deputy director of the Union of Concerned Scientists' Center for Science and Democracy, wrote in a blog post Saturday that he's anxious what such a directive would mean on the CDC's mission.

Analysts are reportedly prohibited from using the phrases in official documents they prepare for the 2019 budget, which is expected to be released in February.

Trump, himself, has often been accused of ignoring science when it gets in the way of his agenda. Four lawsuits have been filed related to the president's ban on transgender troops. So it shouldn't come as a surprise that government censorship would be next on the list.

Policy analysts with the CDC were given the list of forbidden words at a meeting on Thursday with senior officials who oversee the budget, according to the newspaper, which cited an longtime analyst for the agency who took part in the meeting, who was not identified because the person was not authorized to speak publicly.

The idea was not well received on social media.

"Among the words forbidden to be used in CDC budget documents are "evidence-based" and 'science-based.' I suppose one must not think those things either", Holt said.
