I found this on Wikipedia whilst browsing.

I can't really quote any particular piece of interest as it is all horrible and shocking, I was aware of experimentation done in Nazi Germany and Japan, and of course I know about MKULTRA, but I didn't realise the extent of human experimentation in "allied" countries.

well i found this site±

don´t know if the source is respected or not...!


1931 Dr. Cornelius Rhoads, under the auspices of the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Investigations, infects human subjects with cancer cells. He later goes on to establish the U.S. Army Biological Warfare facilities in Maryland, Utah, and Panama, and is named to the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission. While there, he begins a series of radiation exposure experiments on American soldiers and civilian hospital patient



935 The Pellagra Incident. After millions of individuals die from Pellagra over a span of two decades, the U.S. Public Health Service finally acts to stem the disease. The director of the agency admits it had known for at least 20 years that Pellagra is caused by a niacin deficiency but failed to act since most of the deaths occured within poverty-striken black populations.



1947 Colonel E.E. Kirkpatrick of the U.S. Atomic Energy Comission issues a secret document (Document 07075001, January 8, 1947) stating that the agency will begin administering intravenous doses of radioactive substances to human subjects.


just some snippets from the site.

humans, at times, are barbaric savages

I think if we really knew the whole truth about Human experiments going on here in America, Most would not believe what you are saying, to horrible and just plain evil. But one could argue that without some, and I stress, (Some) experiments we would not have certain cures for diseases. crazy messed up world. Im sure it still goes on, like Plum island supposedly for testing for the Agriculture sector, but who really knows. All these people that go missing on a daily basis and are never seen again, I think there is some connections there, or used to be anyways, and the pharmacuetical field is always testing with Human subjects. Sure you can test all you want on a mouse but eventually if you really want to know what that drug is going to do the Human body, then a human test subject is eventually used.

Here is an ATS archive thread that is very informative and lists a lot of information about U.S. experiments.......

Many countries, including the U.S. have experimented with human subjects. Most notably, of course, has been Nazi experimentation. Additional infamous cases like this include Japan's Unit 731, which committed similar atrocities. The British Army has allegedly experimented with its own troops as well. The United States has committed a considerable amount of human experimentation, including the Tuskegee syphilis study, or the Stanford Prison study.

While the motivation for most of these studies is questionable at best, and the methods cannot be argued to be anything but brutal, there was valuable information gained as a result of these studies, as horrific as that thought is. The concept such as Informed Consent, now governs, we hope, the enduring human experimentation in this country.
