Revealed: Army scientists secretly sprayed St Louis with ‘radioactive’ particles for YEARS to test chemical warfare technology

Emily Anne Epstein

The United States Military conducted top  secret experiments on the citizens of St. Louis, Missouri, for years, exposing  them to radioactive compounds, a researcher has claimed. While it was known that the government  sprayed ‘harmless’ zinc cadmium silfide  particles over the general population in St Louis, Professor Lisa Martino-Taylor, a sociologist at St. Louis Community College,  claims that a radioactive additive was also mixed with the  compound. She has accrued detailed descriptions as well  as photographs of the spraying which exposed the  unwitting public, predominantly in low-income and minority communities,  to radioactive particles.

Test: Sociologist Lisa Martino-Taylor, right, a  sociologist at St. Louis Community College, has spent years tracking down  declassified documents to uncover the lengths which the US experimented on  people without their knowing.

Spray: She has accrued detailed descriptions as well as  photographs of the spraying, which took place as part of Manhattan-Rochester  Coalition, which was an operation that dispersed zinc cadmium silfide particles  over the general population, a compound that was presented as completely  safe

‘The study was secretive for reason. They  didn’t have volunteers stepping up and saying yeah, I’ll breathe zinc cadmium  sulfide with radioactive particles,’ said Professor Martino-Taylor to KSDK.

Through her research,  she found photographs of how the particles were distributed from 1953-1954 and  1963-1965
