Researcher: Army Conducted Experiments On St. Louis Residents
Professor Lisa Martino-Taylor of St. Louis Community College has made public years-long research about experiments conducted by the Army on St. Louis residents.
Her research shows the government sprayed zinc cadmium sulfide over thousands of St. Louis residents without their knowledge. The question is whether or not the Army added radioactive material to that mixture as well.
Martino-Taylor’s answer is yes.
“The study was secretive for a reason,” she said. “They didn’t have volunteers stepping up and saying yeah, I’ll breathe zinc cadmium sulfide with radioactive particles.”
Uncovered photographs show that the Army put chemical sprayers on the roofs of buildings like schools and public housing complexes. They also placed them in station wagons for mobile spraying….
The Army admits it added a florescent substance to the compound, but it remains quiet on whether or not that substance was radioactive.
Other uncovered documents suggest the Army didn’t conduct follow-up studies to monitor the health effects of the issue.
Professor Martino-Taylor’s findings have prompted Missouri lawmakers to take another look at the Army experiments.
