Top 10 US Government Experiments Done On Its Own Citizens

July 5, 2020 in News by RBN Staff


Throughout history, the US government has managed to keep secrets hidden from the public. When they release these secrets, many are quite surprised and astonished at everything they’ve managed to get away with. Countless conspiracies involving programs such as Area 51 and MKULTRA have become mainstream in modern-day culture. The desire for such secretive knowledge is ever abundant, and no matter how much we think we know, we’re always proven wrong.

Despite the current rise in conspiracy theories involving government testing, there are many verified instances of such cases that have remained hidden from the public for decades. Here are ten of them.

10Tuskegee Syphilis Study

The US Public Health Service conducted the Tuskegee Syphilis Study beginning in 1932. A total of 600 African American men were chosen to be involved in the study: 399 with syphilis and 201 without. Those with syphilis were denied proper treatment for the disease; the government wanted to ensure that they were able to track its progression without interruption by medication. The men were never given the option to participate in the study because they were never told it was an experiment.

The experiment was only supposed to last for six months, but it became a long-term study that lasted up to 40 years. When penicillin became the main drug to treat syphilis, the patients were denied access and weren’t given the option to opt out of the study. In exchange, they were given free medical exams and burial services. A lawsuit was later filed, and the government granted free burial services to all surviving patients.[1]
