Important medical experiments
May 13, 2018
Sometimes medical progress requires human casualties, but the experiments presented below, which were conducted on people, amaze with their cruelty. During the implementation of these projects, all the laws of ethics and humanity were violated, and the people who introduced them, went down in history as pals and sympathies, creatures devoid of human principles.
Experiment This study was conducted by the USA in 1932 in Alabama. The purpose of this experiment is to find out how the venereal disease is flowing - syphilis, if no treatment is given. To do this, US specialists selected 399 men of a Negroid race and monitored their health. At the same time, the participants of the experiment were told that they were being treated with bad blood, but in fact no treatment was performed.
Doctors did this consciously to study all the side effects of syphilis. Even in 1947, when penicillin was discovered, it was not used for patients from Alabama. It is not known how long this investigation would have continued, but in 1972 American scientists were exposed and punished.
Experiments in Auschwitz
One of the most creepy experiments is the experiments conducted by the German physician Josef Mengele on prisoners in Auschwitz. They were so cruel that some of the subjects did not survive until the end of the experiment. Nazi physicians conducted various tests and tests:
- To find out how much a baby can live without food, his mother bandaged his chest, and after a few days, the exhausted child was given a lethal dose of morphine.
- For human aviation tests, people were placed in a chamber with a low temperature and pressure.
- In humans, new methods of treatment for various infectious diseases and the effects of chemical weapons have been investigated.
- Many prisoners were forcibly sterilized during the experiments.
The American Holocaust Memorial Museum contains information that Dr. Mengele had a hobby - to collect the eyes of his "patients".After the war, many of the doctors of Auschwitz were convicted, but the main doctor Mengele managed to flee to Brazil.
Operation without anesthesia
Gynecologist John Marion Sims became famous, thanks to his experimental surgical operations, which he conducted on slaves. The most terrible thing about his method of treating gynecological diseases was that Dr. Sims performed all the operations without any anesthesia and anesthesia, which was only recently invented in those years. This rule was his conviction, according to which the doctor believed that during the operation the patients do not feel severe pain, therefore the risk of using anesthesia is unjustified. Therefore, female slaves deprived of the right to choose were forced to suffer unbearable suffering during surgical intervention.
In 1933, the journal of medical ethics published an article condemning the actions of John Marion Sims, written by the University professor from Alabama Durend Oyanug.Like the article? Share with friends and acquaintances:
