Quaker Oats and U.S. Atomic Energy Commission
Hello Ethics Nutters,
I’ve only recently become aware of the Quaker Oats U.S. Atomic Energy Commission study on disabled children. Very strange that I have not heard about it earlier. It’s less about the radiation and more about the history of using children in research that were in care homes for the disabled (e.g. Willowbrook).
A history of exploiting vulnerable populations for scientific research.

All the best,
