Wikipedia Entry on Unethical Human Research Conducted in the United States

The other day I was reading an article about the U.S.-funded study of syphilis in Guatemala from 1946-48 that deliberately infected subjects with the disease, and came across a link to Wikipedia’s excellent and horrifying entry on Unethical human experimentation in the United States. Well worth a read if only for the “it can happen here” effect.
