It sounds like a bad dream, and I wish it were. The truth is that human experimentation in the United States occurred on a large scale in our much too recent history. Sometimes there are conspiracy theories, and sometimes there are facts. This is a tale of the latter.
My name is Kate, and I created this website to get the word out. Full disclosure: Kate is an alias, and I’m sure most of you reading this can respect why I have one.
In 2015, I authored a couple books, and I recently added them to the sidebar. This post will be about the first, and I’ll follow up with more information about the second at a later time.
For now, let’s concentrate on the fact that the U.S. government made a unilateral decision over and over again to experiment on its citizens. To be fair, this extends beyond our borders and other governments are sure to have made similar decisions.
Since I’m in the U.S., that’s where I’m going to focus.
Heinous to the Nth Degree
It isn’t enough that these experiments took place. Oh no, they were often performed on the poor, minorities, children, the mentally ill, and the powerless. In most cases the testing was disguised as medical treatment.
Equally shocking is the fact that some of these experiments happened in our lifetimes lasting well into the 70s. At times, it’s unclear if they ever stopped. Given the surveillance state of our world these days, it borders on obvious that the powers that be have not relented in their fervor for well, evil.
In nearly every case, the perpetrators have never seen any justice for the injustices they’ve caused. Not only did these atrocities occur, but every effort was made to cover them up. All of it was funded by your tax dollars.
It is of utmost importance that Americans, and all citizens of the world know what has happened so that we might take measures protect ourselves and ultimately stop it.
When Human Experimentation Began
As America marched on through the Industrial Age, Science and Medicine were also making equal advancements. Early cases of human experimentation occurred just prior to and during the Civil War.
Early on, researchers took advantage of the readily available African slave often performing horrific procedures without anesthesia. While testing on minorities endured, the experiments were not limited to any certain race.
No one was safe, not even children. In 1896, Dr. Arthur Wentworth selected 29 children from the Children’s Hospital in Boston without parental consent. His objective was to find out if spinal taps were harmful or not.
Can you imagine the outrage of something like this occurring today?
Rest assured, there is something happening.
Grant it, some of these experiments advanced modern medicine, but with a “for the greater good” mentality that we know to be unethical. For the most part, experiments today go through a protocol or consensual trials rather than using unwitting victims.
Shamefully, out history is peppered with unspeakable acts like injecting 6 girls under the age of 12 with syphilis or injecting a mentally-disabled boy who is 4 years of age with gonorrhea. These are the cases outlined in my book, Conspiracy Fact: Human Experimentation in the United States.
The Pace Quickens
The 20th century ushered in 40+ years of free-for-all human experimentation. Imagine reading a study where under “material used”, the researcher lists dozens of children from a local orphanage. Some of whom were inflicted with permanent blindness as a result of the testing.
This is appalling. In addition to being unwanted, they were also deemed unworthy of their inalienable rights as human beings in the United States.
The Tuskegee Syphilis Experiment is wide-spread knowledge these days, but was one of the most heinous experiments due to the sheer longevity. From 1932 to 1972, the United States Public Health Service in Tuskegee, Alabama infected 400 impoverished black males with syphilis.
Their “treatment” was withholding treatment. After penicillin was discovered in 1947, patients were lied to so that the effects of their disease could be further studied. By 1972, only 74 of the men were still alive. Forty of the men’s wives contracted the disease and 19 children were born with congenital syphilis as a result.
Once the public learned of this atrocity, only then was it shut down due to the outcry.
World War II and Operation Paperclip
After World War II, Operation Paperclip brought many of Nazi Germany’s worst of the worst into the American scientific and medical communities…including Dr. Joseph Mengele, the Angel of Death himself.
Fifteen hundred Nazi scientists and doctors were granted immunity and given asylum in the United States so we could advance from their devilish research.
My book explores 9 instances of human experimentation during this era; one includes Dr. Jonas Salk, famous for the polio vaccine.
There are instances where children, some as young as 12 months, were used in experiments. It seems the Hippocratic Oath and “first, do no harm” flew out the window a long, long time ago.
Biological and Chemical Warfare and Radiation Testing
The research didn’t stop at medicine. Understanding how certain biological and chemical weapons affected humans was knowledge that was heavily sought after. Given the military importance of such, most of these experiments were carried out by military personnel. Sometimes they were even carried out on military personnel.
One favorite included spraying bacteria over large cities to measure the effects on its citizens. Tests like these began in 1950 and continued until 1969.
Really the favorite was dropping mosquitoes infected with various pathogens. They prefaced many of these tests by dropping uninfected insects to monitor how they spread through a population. Even if you were fortunate enough to escape being infected by the test, no doubt you experienced an influx of the most annoying insect on Planet Earth. These tests were conducted throughout the 1950s.
The military learned about and tested nerve gases like Sarin by attacking themselves. There’s no telling how many service men and women suffered long-term affects or even death from these antics.
The radiation tests were some of the worst and most merciless. They ranged from dropping radioactive isotopes from the sky to administering them via injection or even orally. They were given to pregnant women, infants, and other citizens of the United States.
The worst case by far gained national attention when 60 Minutes uncovered what went on at Sonoma State Hospital between 1955 and 1960. More than 1,400 mentally and physically disabled children were given irradiated milk or spinal taps. Researchers would remove spinal fluid and replace it with irradiated gases. The kicker is that this institution still operates today under a different name: Sonoma Developmental Center.
Some of the many other cases included:
- Injecting people with Uranium to measure how much it would take to damage their kidneys
- Injecting terminally ill cancer patients with Uranium to determine its viability as chemotherapy
- Countless Plutonium experiments under the Manhattan Project
- Giving “vitamin drinks” to unwitting pregnant women to find out how long it took the isotopes to breach the placental barrier
- Feeding mentally-disabled children isotope-laced oatmeal to determine how the isotopes were digested
- Injecting burn patients with isotopes
- Mixing radioactive material with blood taken from prisoners and then reinjecting the blood back into the individuals; this resulted in papers stating that irradiated Phosphorus caused various forms of bone cancer
- Administering full-body radiation to poor, black cancer patients who did not consent to or know what was being done to them; this was done on the behalf of the Pentagon to measure the effects of radiation on the body.
The list goes on and on. The book details chemical warfare and dermatological tests that were carried out. The latter lasting an astonishing 23 years.
Ongoing Human Experimentation
I’m not sure it ever stopped. From the 40s, the testing sort of morphed into Project MK Ultra and it’s many sub projects. These ranged from ongoing physical research to include psychological research into mind control as well.
My book is the tip of the iceberg unfortunately. In an upcoming blog post, I will detail the topic of my second book, Conspiracy Fact: MKULTRA and Mind Control in the United States.
As you might have concluded, I very much like to deal in facts. I’m not just making claims here or theorizing. I have corroborated my words with real, hard evidence. The best of which is in the form of declassified documents.
I hope you find my book to be a great starting point for you as you begin your own research into our dark history. When you begin this journey, you realize that the surface problems of this country, the ones you hear about on the nightly news, are nothing. They aren’t even the real problem. The real problem is the secret cabal still in control who carried out these tests and is still seeking to control us all as willing slaves. Godspeed. Stay vigilant. Question everything.
