From Mercola.com: (1931:) Cornelius Rhoads, a pathologist from the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research, purposely infects human test subjects in Puerto Rico with cancer cells; 13 of them die. Though Rhoads gives a written testimony stating he believes that all Puerto Ricans should be killed, he later goes on to establish the U.S. Army Biological Warfare facilities in Maryland, Utah and Panama, and is named to the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission, where he begins a series of radiation exposure experiments on American soldiers and civilian hospital patients.
From Wikipedia: When asked about the reasons for the study on Puerto Ricans, Rhoades replied: “The Porto Ricans (sic) are the dirtiest, laziest, most degenerate and thievish race of men ever to inhabit this sphere... I have done my best to further the process of extermination by killing off eight and transplanting cancer into several more... All physicians take delight in the abuse and torture of the unfortunate subjects."
From the same Wikipedia article: Later, Rhoads was given a seat on the United States Atomic Energy Commission. It is reported he performed radiation experiments on human beings there. He was also awarded the U.S. Legion of Merit by the government for his research.
Many people still criticize the lack of action taken against Rhoads for his experiments.
In 2003, controversy arose again as to the letter and the alleged experiments and the AACR Cornelius P. Rhoads Memorial Award would no longer be associated with his name. The award was not presented that year.
From "America Betrayed," by Rhawn Joseph, downloadable as a PDF file: With regard to the people of Puerto Rico, Dr. Rhoads wrote: “What the island needs is not public health work, but a tidal wave or something to totally exterminate the population.” Dr. Rhoads is alleged to have injected hundreds of Puerto Ricans with cancer. Cornelius Rhoads later became a founder and first director of the Memorial Sloan- Kettering Institute, which specializes in research on cancer.
The American Association of Cancer Research gave out the Cornelius P. Rhoads award for new researchers between 1979 and 2002, renaming and relaunching the award in 2004.
Here's a headline for you: Admitted Mass Murderer Rewarded, Lionized.
The past is dead and buried, right? Remember: He killed Puerto Ricans and almost certainly other "American soldiers and civilians."
Or is it that the past is prologue? Admitted murderers getting away with it, under "sanction" of broken laws and war, whether they be some Rhoads or a Bush.
Hell if I know.
The Jenius Has Spoken.
P.S. From the same Mercola.com article quoted above: (1963:) Chester M. Southam, who injected Ohio State Prison inmates with live cancer cells in 1952, performs the same procedure on 22 senile, African-American female patients at the Brooklyn Jewish Chronic Disease Hospital in order to watch their immunological response. Southam tells the patients that they are receiving "some cells," but leaves out the fact that they are cancer cells. He claims he doesn't obtain informed consent from the patients because he does not want to frighten them by telling them what he is doing, but he nevertheless temporarily loses his medical license because of it. Ironically, he eventually becomes president of the American Cancer Society.
Seems the formula for success in the cancer-doctor groups is (was?) to kill unsuspecting people and then wait for the accolades and prestige to follow...
