The Agent Orange Experiments
The United States military complex wanted to create a high grade herbicide for its war efforts in the deep forests of Vietnam. Dow Chemical created one: dioxin, also known as Agent Orange. Dioxin is a known carcinogen, mutagen, teratogen, and is generally considered the most poisonous chemical in the world.
This herbicide had to be tested on people in the 1965. So, Dow rounded up prisoners and injected them with the chemical. It’s worth noting that even getting skin contact will burn a typical person, so one can only imagine what those prisoners felt when it went into their veins.
All the prisoners immediately broke out in severe acne, and later began to get diagnosed with cancer. Despite this, Agent Orange was still used in the war and the government refuses to acknowledge the damage it caused on people and the local environment.
