    Vintage DHP: 'Merica Does Mengele Part 1: Radiation Experiments

    Vintage DHP: 'Merica Does Mengele Part 1: Radiation Experiments

    Boom! - Dropped back on the Gen-Pop feed (reissued for a limited time) from almost 7 years ago, here comes another vintage DHP episode! This one was about the US government's horrific radiation experiments on human test subjects in the mid-20th century.
    Join CJ as he discusses:

    The Nuremberg Code, and its relevance to these experiments

    The first experiments carried out by Manhattan Project doctors between 1945 and 1947, including one on a 4-year-old Australian boy dying of cancer

    The creation of the Atomic Energy Commission (AEC), and how they created experimental guidelines similar to the Nuremberg Code, which unfortunately they had no problem ignoring

    Over 800 pregnant women in Nashville who were given ‘cocktails’ containing radioactive elements in the late-1940s & early-1950s

    Boys at the Walter E. Fernald State School for the mentally disabled who were given radioactive milk and oatmeal courtesy of MIT scientists & the Quaker Oats company

    Prisoners in Oregon and Washington who had their testicles dosed with massive amounts of radiation in return for cash

    How this all really started to come to light in the 1990s due to investigations by Energy Secretary Hazel O’Leary and a committee set up by President Clinton to investigate these experiments

    The less-than-satisfying conclusion of those investigations
