If They Would Feed Radioactive Oatmeal to Little Kids, What Wouldn't They Do?
One story that has really stuck with me (even though it is far from the worst) discloses how boys at a known eugenics school in Massachusetts were fed radiation-laced oatmeal by MIT scientists under the ruse that they were chosen to be part of a special club.

Their parents were even sent letters which made this violation of human rights sound like a good and even healthy thing for these kids, stating the study was, “in connection with the nutrition department of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology” with “the purpose of helping to improve the nutrition of our children.”

It went on to say the boys would get, “a quart of milk daily… taken to a baseball game, to the beach, and to some outside dinners” and “enjoy it greatly,” all with zero mention that the government, via the Atomic Energy Commission, had signed off on turning their kids into human guinea pigs.

Seventy-four children between 1946 and 1953 were fed this radioactive concoction. “You had to drink the milk. That was the thing,” one victim named Gordon remembered. The scientists would force the kids to clean their bowls, every last bit. They were allowed to ask for seconds. Guess it beat whatever the other kids at that awful place were being fed at the time.

The thing is, it wasn’t even for any real purposeful research.

Even today we don’t know the full scope of everything that happened as a consequence of that. There are still 600 million documents related to Operation Paperclip that have yet to be declassified. National security means we may never know. The country was put on a “need-to-know” basis when that act was signed in 1947, and we simply don’t need to know.

In 1998, MIT and Quaker Oats agreed to pay out $1.85 million to 45 victims of the radioactive oatmeal study; Massachusetts was forced to pay another $676,000 to 27 participants. The book says some federal and state lawsuits on this matter are still pending.
