Exposed: US military deliberately blasted toxic chemicals, radioactive material at Americans in covert war experiment

by Ethan A. Huff, staff writer

(NaturalNews) Investigative researcher, sociologist, and secret military experiment expert Lisa Martino-Taylor has uncovered hundreds of documents that she says prove the U.S. military covertly poisoned Americans back in the 1950s and 60s under the guise of defending them against Russian invaders. In what can only be compared to the types of inhumane medical experiments forced on prisoners in Nazi death camps during World War II, these documents reveal that the U.S. Army secretly blasted toxic zinc cadmium sulfide and radioactive particles from rooftops and vehicles in St. Louis and elsewhere to test the effects of these toxins on humans.

As reported by KSDK News 5 in St. Louis, these shocking revelations were obtained through numerous Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests for once-classified documents, which explain how the military basically pretended to be protecting the public during the Cold War while actually waging germ warfare against it. And St. Louis was not the only city where this took place -- the sprayings reportedly also took place in at least 33 other cities including Corpus Christi, Texas, Winnipeg, Canada and Fort Wayne, Indiana.

"The study was secretive for a reason," explained Martino-Taylor to KSDK. "They didn't have volunteers stepping up and saying, 'yeah, I'll breathe zinc cadmium sulfide with radioactive particles.'"

Martino-Taylor was able to dig up pictures showing that airplanes were once used to spray the toxic chemicals from the sky on Corpus Christi residents during the 1960s. And in St. Louis, army engineers can be seen in old photos rigging small devices on building rooftops and on the backs of station wagon vehicles that quietly laced the air with the organ-destroying compounds.

"It was pretty shocking, the level of duplicity and secrecy," added Martino-Taylor. "Clearly they went to great lengths to deceive people ... in violation of all medical ethics, all international codes, and the military's own policy at that time."

The vast majority of the sprayings in St. Louis reportedly took place at the now-demolished Pruitt-Igoe housing project complex, where 10,000 low-income residents once lived. It is now estimated that 70 percent of these residents, who have since been relocated, were young children under the age of 12, who likely sustained the most damage as a result of exposure to these chemicals.

"Cadmium accumulates in the body, especially in the kidneys and to a much lesser extent the liver," says an English study about the effects of cadmium exposure. "When cadmium is absorbed through the lungs or the gut it becomes bound to albumen or to the cystine-rich protein, metallothionein," where it essentially causes renal damage.
