unsure Lawsuit Claims Army Poisoned People in 1950s
Advertisement
Monsanto and others conspired with an Army experiment to secretly poison people with toxic chemicals in a giant segregated housing complex in the 1950s, a class action claims in City Court.

Lead plaintiff Benjamin Phillips Sr. claims defendants Monsanto, Parsons Government Services and SRI International participated in a study beginning in 1953 that lasted into the 1960s. Phillips claims the study, the "Involuntary Chemical Study on PI Residents" or "ICS", was conducted around the Pruitt-Igoe housing complex in St. Louis.

"This study consisted generally of the following: defendants, along with other known conspirators such as the United States Army) and unknown conspirators caused to be sprayed upon the residents and structures of PI chemicals, such as cadmium, including potentially radioactive cadmium, with the knowledge or consent of those resident, the administrators of PI or city or other government officials. The purpose of this study is unknown," the complaint states. (Open parentheses in complaint.)

Phillips, who lived at Pruitt-Igoe at the time, claims the chemicals caused emotional psychological trauma and harm as well as personal injury.

He seeks actual and punitive damages for public nuisance, liability, intentional infliction of emotional distress and battery. He is represented by Elkin Kistner, with Bick & Kistner.

Army: Chemical sprayed on St. Louis not harmful

An Army investigation into secret chemical testing in impoverished areas of St. Louis during the Cold War era has corroborated three previous studies that found the testing posed no health risk to those who lived in the areas, according to a letter from a top Army official.

In the 1950s and 1960s, the Army used motorized blowers atop a low-income housing high-rise, on schools and in other locations to spray zinc cadmium sulfide, a fine fluorescent powder, into the air. The testing was part of a biological weapons program, and St. Louis was chosen because it bore some resemblance to Russian cities that the United States might attack.

Both of Missouri's U.S. senators, Republican Roy Blunt and Democrat Claire McCaskill, wrote to the Army after learning of St. Louis professor Lisa Martino-Taylor's research about the program.

Katherine Hammack, assistant secretary of the Army, said in a letter received by Blunt's office yesterday that Army investigators reviewed several assessments and studies compiled over the past nearly two decades and found no health risk from the zinc cadmium sulfide, also known as ZnCdS, sprayed in St. Louis.

Martino-Taylor's research also raised concerns that the Army performed radiation testing by mixing radioactive particles with the zinc cadmium sulfide.

Following the letters from the senators, Army investigators looked at several studies conducted since information about the testing was declassified in 1994, including a study conducted by the Army and others conducted by the National Research Council Committee on Toxicology and the National Academy of Sciences' Institute of Medicine.

Sick,

Hopefully I did not get anything in my series of military shots.

Who knows what shit they're putting in the shots. My guess is that's where gulf war syndrome came from. Bastards.
