Description - Undue Risk by Jonathan D. Moreno

Undue Risk is an unprecedented and chilling history of the use of human subjects in atomic, biological and chemical warfare experiments by the US Government from World War II to the present. Jonathan Moreno, a senior researcher on the President's special commission, goes where few researchers have gone before, exploring secret government documents which reveal a plethora of government experiments. He exposes startling details of experiments like the inhumane subjection of soldiers to atomic blast fallouts and secret LSD and mescaline experiments. From the courtrooms of Nuremberg to the battlefields of the Gulf War, Undue Risk exposes a variety of government policies and specific cases, including plutonium injections to unwilling hospital patients and , and even the attempted recruitment of Nazi medical scientists by the US government after World War II. Now available in paperback, with a new afterword, this exciting read covers recent objections by US military personnel to required anthrax vaccinations and new developments in government policies on experiments involving vulnerable human subjects.
