Assunto: Fulfilling Mengele´s dreams and making Ishii Shiro proud

http://www.foxnews.com/science/2018/04/ ... -body.html

Following the email below it seems that medical research in USA is addicted to bizarre experiments. In the meantime the sleep walking scientific community is very worried on scientists that make papers with duplicate images or with plagiarized content but its much less worried on these experiments or others like this one https://investigations.peta.org/french- ... l-testing/ If that is the state of the art of ethic in medical research in Western countries we can only imagine what medical tests are now being secretly performed in the countries where human life has little value meaning that if Joseph Mengele and Ishii Shiro were still alive they would be working as highly payed scientists in some secret lab for one of such countries.

Assunto: "the most infamous biomedical research study in U.S."

https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/a ... 3316301524

In an interesting paper in the link above with the title "Is there a technological fix for the current global stagnation?: A response to Daniele Archibugi, Blade Runner economics: Will innovation lead the economic recovery?"

Bengt-Åke Lundvall of Aalborg University replies to a former and interesting paper also published in the journal Research Policy. On it he mentioned a disgusting experiment that some has termed "the most infamous biomedical research study in U.S." that says much about medicine ethics in some countries and much more about the consequences of inequality, mentioned in the email below.
"The Tuskegee experiment was a notorious medical research project involving hundreds of 600 poor African-American men that took place from 1932 to 1972 in Macon County, Alabama…28 participants had perished from syphilis, 100 more had passed away from related complications, at least 40 spouses had been diagnosed with it and the disease had been passed to 19 children at birth....In 2010, President Barack Obama and other federal officials apologized for another unethical, U.S.-sponsored medical study, conducted decades earlier in Guatemala. In that study, from 1946 to 1948, nearly 700 men and women—prisoners, soldiers, mental patients—were intentionally infected with syphilis (hundreds more people were exposed to other sexually transmitted diseases as part of the study) without their knowledge or consent"
