6 Proven Case Facts – Covert Human Experimentation

166

Here is a list of some of the most horrific experiments that have been proven true over the years and admitted to by leading military and politicians.  These experiments actually took place and have been all but forgotten.

Native Americans – Bio Warfare

The first experimentation was done with the Native Americans before the United States was officially a country, back in 1763. While the colonial expansion was still occurring, an American soldier suggested to Lord Jeffrey Amherst that Native Americans could get small pox.  Amherst passed on that idea up the military command, and less than a month later he received a boatload of blankets, handkerchiefs that had been infected with small pox.

Captain Simeon Ecuyer had bought time by sending smallpox-infected blankets and handkerchiefs to the Indians surrounding the fort—an early example of biological warfare—which started an epidemic among them.   Amherst himself had encouraged this tactic in a letter to Ecuyer.

It is unknown just how many Native Americans died directly because of the smallpox blankets given to them, but it is at least in the tens of thousands.

The Tuskegee Study

The next experimentation the American government did upon the people is the Tuskegee syphilis study or, to give it its full name, the Tuskegee Study of Untreated Syphilis in the Negro Male, was a notorious clinical study that has become synonymous with racism and unethical medical experimentation. It ran from 1932 to 1972 and involved nearly 400 impoverished and poorly educated African-American men diagnosed with latent syphilis – meaning that they had the infection but showed no obvious symptoms at that stage.

For 40 years they were never told they had syphilis and were never treated for it, even when penicillin became a standard cure in 1947. They were simply told they had ‘bad blood’. Among the aims of the study was to see whether syphilis affected black men differently from white men.

When the study ended in 1972 following a public outcry, only 74 of the original participants were still alive. Twenty-eight men had died of the disease and a further hundred or so of related complications.

Forty wives had been infected and 19 children had been born with congenital syphilis. Survivors eventually received financial compensation and in 1997 US President Bill Clinton was moved to declare that ‘on behalf of the American people, what the United States government did was shameful’.

The Guatemala Syphilis Experiment

The third experiment conducted by the American government was another syphilis experiment run by the same doctor who started the Tuskegee study.   The Guatemala syphilis experiment started in 1946-1948.

It was well known by this time that penicillin was the ‘cure’ for syphilis, and this study was to try and determine if penicillin could be used as a vaccine to prevent the person from getting syphilis in the first place.   This study was conducted in Guatemala by the American government using American tax dollars.  It consisted of infecting prostitutes with syphilis then encouraging them to have unprotected sex with prisoners and mental patients.

When not enough results were found using this method of infection stronger methods were implemented. Patients were given a shot of penicillin, then their genitals were directly exposed to syphilis through scraping the skin until it bled and having the syphilis infection rubbed into the scraped tissue. A bandage was placed over the infection site for 24 hours to ensure that the syphilis bacteria had enough time to infect the patient.

All told 1500 people were infected with syphilis, none gave consent, nor were any of the infected treated properly afterwards. As a result of these studies, penicillin was ruled out as a vaccine for syphilis and the American military pulled out of Guatemala leaving behind the sick prisoners and mental patients untreated even though it was known penicillin was a cure.

The Manhattan Project – Radioactive Isotopes

The fourth experiment upon the civilian population of the United States was conducted at the dawn of the nuclear age and was part of the Manhattan Project (a research and development project that produced the first atomic bombs during World War II).

It began in early 1945, Ebb Cade, a worker at the Oak Ridge Nuclear Facility, was involved in a car accident which broke his leg.  When doctors interviewed him, they ascertained that the fifty-three-year-old African American man was otherwise perfectly healthy, eating well, drinking well, and had no history of serious illness. And so, having obtained a healthy subject, on April 10th his doctors secretly injected him with 4.7 micrograms of plutonium.

Since the beginning of the Manhattan Project, tests had been done to see how plutonium isotopes affected human beings.  He was the first person to be injected with plutonium in the United States, but not the last.   All told more than 20 people were secretly injected without their knowledge or consent with various amounts of plutonium during the following two years.

After patient complaints about side effects unrelated to any treatment they knew about new rules were put into place. The potential patient was required to be told he was being given an experimental treatment and the results were unknown.

Supposedly, the only people this ‘treatments’ was to be offered to were patients who had less than 6 months to live because of any illness.   How it worked in reality, was totally different.  Any person, who would agree to the treatment for any illness including the common cold, was listed as terminal and was given ever-increasing amounts of radioactive substances including plutonium, uranium, and combinations of others.

Study of Natural Selection – Measles

The fifth experimentation done by the US was in the mid 1960s and involved the infection of thousands of Venezuelan Indians with measles.   American scientists wanted to study the effects of measles on primitive societies to study the laws of natural selection.

Once the Yanomami people were infected the scientists were ordered not to provide ANY medical care or attention and to just document how natural selection played out in the primitive environment.

One of the most controversial aspects of the research, which resulted in an epidemic of measles, is that is was funded by the US atomic energy commission who was eager to discover what might happen to communities when large numbers were wiped out by nuclear war.

The sixth American experimentation on it’s citizens happened during the 1950-1960s in various cities around the United States. Through freedom of information act requests, Lisa Martino-Taylor was able to obtain details of the Army’s ultra-secret military experiments carried out in St. Louis and other cities during the 1950s and 60s.

Her research has uncovered that not only did the government spray zinc cadmium sulfide on unsuspecting citizens without their permission, they also included questionable radioactive materials. While the army admits to spraying zinc cadmium sulfide, Taylor claims they also sprayed a radioactive material along with it. “There is a lot of evidence that shows people in St. Louis and the city, in particular minority communities, were subjected to military testing that was connected to a larger radiological weapons testing project,” she said.

For the first time, she links the St. Louis testing to a company called US Radium, a company notorious for lawsuits involving radioactive contamination of its workers.  “US radium had this reputation where they had been found legally liable for producing a radioactive powdered paint that killed many young women who painted fluorescent watch tiles,” said Martino-Taylor.

While the Army admits it added a florescent substance to the zinc cadmium compound, details of whether it was radioactive remains secret.

Documents uncovered to date indicate the Army never conducted follow-up studies to see whether the compound caused long term health issues.”

Americans have placed trust in the government to do what is best for it’s citizens, to not treat them as experiments, and test subjects. But, time and time again, they are betrayed by our own government, lied to about it, and finally when they have NO other choice, the government admits the truth.

The most recent example of this is the uncovering of the ‘Torture Report’. For years the world was told that America was ‘just’ in their treatment of prisoners, a country leading the world in care and concern for ALL of its citizens… now we know the truth.

These events are no longer ‘conspiracy theories’ and those who talk about them are not ‘crazy conspiracy theorists’… we are the informed passing on truth to all who will listen.
