Final Report of the Advisory Committee on Human Radiation Experiments

Book cover

This pivotal document is a comprehensive examination of the unethical and inhumane radiation experiments conducted on unknowing civilians during the mid-20th century. The Advisory Committee delves into the disturbing details of how vulnerable populations were subjected to radiation without their consent, highlighting the grave violations of human rights that occurred. The report also sheds light on the institutional failures and lack of accountability that allowed these experiments to take place. It serves as a powerful reminder of the importance of ethical guidelines and oversight in scientific research. Every page is a sobering reminder of the impact of unchecked power and the importance of protecting the rights and dignity of all individuals. This report is a must-read for anyone interested in understanding the darker side of scientific research and the ongoing quest for accountability and justice.

Book Description:
Researchers in the United States have performed thousands of human radiation experiments to determine the effects of atomic radiation and radioactive contamination on the human body. Most of these tests were performed, funded, or supervised by the United States military, Atomic Energy Commission, or various other U.S. federal government agencies. The experiments included a wide array of studies, involving things like feeding radioactive food to mentally disabled children, deliberately releasing radioactive chemicals over U.S. and Canadian cities, measuring the health effects of radioactive fallout from nuclear bomb tests, and irradiating the testicles of prison inmates, among other things. Much information about these programs was classified and kept secret. In the 1990s Eileen Welsome's reports on radiation testing for The Albuquerque Tribune prompted the creation of the Advisory Committee on Human Radiation Experiments by executive order of president Bill Clinton in order to monitor government tests; it published results in 1995.
