The aerosol was sprayed from blowers installed on rooftops and mounted on vehicles. ”The Army claims that they were spraying a quote ‘harmless’ zinc cadmium sulfide,” says Dr. Lisa Martino-Taylor, Professor of Sociology, St. Louis Community College. Yet Martino-Taylor points out, cadmium was a known toxin at the time of the spraying in the mid 50′s and mid 60′s. Worse, she says the aerosol was laced with a fluorescent additive – a suspected radiological compound – produced by U.S. Radium, a company linked to the deaths of workers at a watch factory decades before.
She says the spraying occurred between 1953 and 54 and again from 1963 to 65 in areas of North St. Louis and eventually in parts of South St. Louis. Martino-Taylor launched her research after hearing independent reports of cancers among city residents living in those areas at the time. “At this point, further investigation by government bodies would be welcome. They investigated it in the past and congressional inquiry in the past was not very effective.” She says some of the documents she tried to obtain remain classified, while others she requested had information redacted.
Dr. Martino-Taylor will be presenting her research Tuesday at St. Louis Community College. Click here for a link to the website.

, and I spent a day reading about tooth studies and other fateful events that turned out to be related to the St. Louis aerosol study, although I‟m not sure I realized how useful those documents would be until much later, when I discovered Projects GABRIEL and SUNSHINE.
Project GABRIEL refers to an investigation by the United States Atomic Energy Commission to gauge the impact of radioactive fallout resulting from nuclear warfare. GABRIEL surmised that radioactive isotope Strontium-90 presented the greatest hazard to life globally.
This resulted in the commissioning of Project SUNSHINE, which sought to examine the levels of Sr-90 in human tissues and bones (with a special interest in infants) gathered from around the world.

and I think they are still doing it to this day, only in a sneakier fashion.

My dad grew up and lived in East St. Louis during the 40's-60's. He told us about sprayings that occurred there as well. He passed on from non-Hodgkin's lymphoma 15 years ago. He held the belief that exposure to toxins from when he was young may have contributed to his sickness.
