How many of these types of stories have I posted here. Are you understanding there is a pattern here. These are not isolated incidents. This is the norm for the US. This is what they do.
Here is the story.
US apologizes for Guatemela experimentation
On Friday, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Health Secretary Kathleen Sebelius issued a startling apology to Guatemala, saying that “although these events occurred more than 64 years ago, we are outraged that such reprehensible research could have occurred under the guise of public health.”
Is this Guatamelan experimentation the lone incident? Not according to Dr Francis Collins.
The government “could identify more than 40 other studies where intentional infection was carried out with what we would now consider completely inadequate consent, in the United States,” he said.
Without adequate consent? How about with no consent?
The hundreds of Guatemalans used in the U.S. study are either very elderly or dead by now, though their photos in research files are silent testimony to their participation. The question of compensation for their relatives is still unanswered
Back that train up! According to the western media it was hundreds of Guatemalans? As always sufficiently vague. How many 100's? One or two? How about the fact that it was thousands and closer to two thousand then say just a few hundred.
Over 1600 Guatemalans were infected intentionally. This article even gives the numbers, a breakdown. I will quote:
The United States has apologised to Guatemala for a research study that intentionally inflicted over 1,600 people in the country with sexually transmitted diseases in order to test how effective penicillin was in treating the sicknesses.
The research study occurred between 1946 and 1948 and was called the ‘U.S. Public Health Service Sexually Transmitted Disease Inoculation Study’. It saw 696 people intentionally infected with syphilis, 772 with gonorrhoea and 142 with chancres, according to long-forgotten records uncovered by Susan Reverby of Wellesley College.Western media, lies or misleads by omission.... but, I digress and will continue with the post.
American tax dollars (money well spent) through the National Institute of Health, paid for syphilis infected prostitutes (who infected the prostitutes?) to sleep with the prisoners. When the prostitutes did not succeed in infecting the men, some prisoners had the bacteria poured onto scrapes made on their penises, faces or arms, and in some cases it was injected by spinal puncture.
The experimentation on the Guatemalans was done by Dr John Cutler, who also conducted experimentation in Alabama, on black males, know as the Tuskegee experiments.
So what were the 40 other experiments mentioned? Who were they conducted upon without consent? Where were they conducted? A brief indication can be found in this paragraph-
From 1963 to 1966, researchers at the Willowbrook State School on Staten Island infected retarded children with hepatitis to test gamma globulin against it. And in 1963, elderly patients at the Brooklyn Jewish Chronic Disease Hospital were injected with live cancer cells to see if they caused tumors.
What is particularly hypocritical about all this experimentation?
And I mean all of it, including other posts I have had on the subject, up to the present time (And this is not even all of them, but, hoping you get the idea)
While all this was going on in Guatamela and elsewhere.....
"At the same time as the United States was prosecuting Nazi doctors for crimes against humanity, the U.S. government was supporting research that placed human subjects at enormous risk.”How Ironic.
UPDATED: I want to add this to the post. From Natural News.
Expanding on this type of human experimentation being the norm for the US
It ain't pretty!
Guatemalan STD medical experiments were just one crime in a long history of medical-government collusion to use humans as guinea pigs
