Human Medical Experimentation by Frances R. Frankenburg
Reviewed by Linda
Guinea pigs are used in medical trials but did you know that professional guinea pigs get paid? These are people willing to test new drugs or procedures for medical purposes.
This book is full of medical breakthroughs (like the polio vaccine) and medical horrors (subjects injected with plutonium without their consent). These essays and references cover the history of human medical experimentation from Hippocrates time to the present day. It tells it like it is – lives were saved but sometimes the cost was exploiting the most vulnerable people.
|Human Medical Experimentation is available to view from the reference section upstairs in Information Services.|
