The Ministry of Defence turned large parts of the country into a giant laboratory to conduct a series of secret germ warfare tests on the public. A
government report just released provides for the first time a comprehensive official history of Britain's biological weapons trials between 1940 and

being told. While details of some secret trials have emerged in recent years, the 60-page report reveals new information about more than 100 covert
experiments. The report reveals that military personnel were briefed to tell any 'inquisitive inquirer' the trials were part of research projects
into weather and air pollution. The tests, carried out by government scientists at Porton Down, were designed to help the MoD assess Britain's
vulnerability if the Russians were to have released clouds of deadly germs over the country. In most cases, the trials did not use biological weapons
but alternatives which scientists believed would mimic germ warfare and which the MoD claimed were harmless. But families in certain areas of the
country who have children with birth defects are demanding a public inquiry. corpust.com...
