Rate this:
Wolfgang Weyers, a physician himself, records the history of unethical experiments on humans, from the first intentional inoculation of a patient with syphilis and gonorrhea in England of the late 18th century through the infamous Tuskegee Study about which revelations resulted in the establishment of modern guidelines for research involving human subjects in the United States to the exploitation of orphans and prisoners as human guinea pigs in studies undertaken by dermatologists at the University of Pennsylvania on behalf of the pharmaceutical and cosmetic industry and that, in the process, become an industry itself. The scope of Weyers' erudition includes the East, as well as the West, and spares none of import who engaged in these unconscionable practices. Dubious medical experiments on humans continue to be carried out.
