Seemingly overnight, a staggering portion of the population suddenly believe elected officials are concerned about public health. Many citizens view federal organizations as a caring and benevolent force. However, history has repeatedly proven otherwise. Throughout the decades, governments have performed sickening experiments on men, women, and children. Countless innocent victims were senselessly killed at the hands of corrupted bureaucrats. Chillingly, modern times are no exception for these insidious individuals. Heinous acts continue to transpire in countries around the world. To fully understand what is currently unfolding, society must take a hard look at past events. Here are just a few examples of instances our civil sectors knowingly violated human rights.
Patients Injected With Radioactive Chemicals
At the height of World War II, America was laser-focused on manufacturing an atomic weapon. Although radium’s dangers were understood, scientists wanted to research the impact of other hazardous elements. Medical professionals visited hospitals and military facilities in search of potential guinea pigs. Nurses administered dozens of injections of radioactive plutonium. Ebb Cade was the first person to receive this deadly concoction. Doctors wanted to observe the chemical’s bodily impact so they extracted fifteen of his teeth. His leg and arm bones were also removed. Cade escaped the hospital but ultimately died from heart failure. Other examinees suffered debilitating life-long complications.
Disabled Children Were Fed Diseased Feces
Willowbrook was a state-funded school for children with mental and physical disabilities. For nearly 15 years, the institute performed revolting epidemic studies on vulnerable juveniles. Without any parental knowledge or consent, students were deliberately infected with hepatitis. To accomplish this task, program directors Dr. Saul Krugman and virologist Robert W. McCollum fed the minors contaminated feces. After ingesting the excrement they began vomiting. Pupils endured constant fatigue, diarrhea, yellowing skin, and abdominal pain. These appalling research methods continued until 1970. Only two years later, Krugman was promoted to president of the American Pediatric Society.
The Government Poisoned Alcohol
Amid the prohibition era, political leaders were outraged that drinkers continued finding ways to enjoy intoxicating beverages. In retaliation for the widespread noncompliance, they ordered industrial distilleries to poison batches of alcohol. The tainted product was then distributed to bootleggers across New York City. Thousands of patrons consumed lethal cocktails spiked with horrifying ingredients including kerosene, gasoline, chloroform, acetone, mercury, formaldehyde, and methanol. Emergency rooms were abruptly filled with gravely ill patients. Body counts continued to rise exponentially in the following weeks. Over 10,000 innocent citizens were murdered at the hands of a despicable administration.
