(NaturalNews) As new details begin to surface about secret chemical tests performed on American citizens in St. Louis during the 1950s, we here at Natural News can only shake our heads in disgust and ask the obvious question: How many more of these kinds of tests were done without our knowledge?
In 1955 when she was still just a baby, Doris Spates' father passed away suddenly, she recalled in an interview with The Associated Press recently. Since then, she says, she has survived cervical cancer while watching four siblings die from various cancers.
After finding out that, as the Cold War heightened throughout the 1960s, the U.S. Army conducted secret chemical testing in her downtrodden St. Louis neighborhood. And rightly so, Spates wonders if her government is responsible for the carnage her family has endured.
"In the mid-1950s, and again a decade later, the Army used motorized blowers atop a low-income housing high-rise, at schools and from the backs of station wagons to send a potentially dangerous compound into the already-hazy air in predominantly black areas of St. Louis," the AP reported.
