US Top Secret Military Experiment: Exposing Citizens to Radioactive Compounds
Local Editor

The United States Military conducted top secret experiments on the citizens of St. Louis, Missouri, for years, exposing them to radioactive compounds; an American sociologist said.

Professor Lisa Martino-Taylor at St. Louis Community College revealed that a radioactive additive was mixed with zinc cadmium sulfide and sprayed over the population in the 1950s and 60s as a cold war-era protection measure.
The US army poisoned people, primarily minorities and low-income communities in St. Louis in the name of keeping the US safe, she said.


"The study was secretive for reason. They didn't have volunteers stepping up and saying yeah, I'll breathe zinc cadmium sulfide with radioactive particles," she added.

St. Louis residents were told that the test was carried out as part of pre-emptive measures against Russian attacks on US cities.
The Army put up chemical sprayers on buildings such as schools and public housing projects.

"It was pretty shocking, the level of duplicity and secrecy. Clearly they went to great lengths to deceive people," Taylor went on to say.
Through her research, she found photographs of how the particles were distributed from 1953-1954 and 1963-1965.


In her research, Taylor found that the greatest concentration of spraying in St Louis was at the Pruitt-Igoe public housing complex, which was home to 10,000 low income residents. She said that 70 per cent of those residents were children under the age of 12.

'This was a violation of all medical ethics, all international codes, and the military's own policy at that time,' said Professor Martino-Taylor.
Professor Taylor decided to carry out the research after she heard various reports of cancer among those who lived in those areas during that period.
