I have been hearing about this the past few days and all day long since the time I woke up and me and a family member were talking about it today and we both said basically the same thing.
America has been doing experiments or treated as Guinea Pigs on it's citizens forever and you don't see them all getting apologies etc. Accept they pay you now after you sign a consent form stating that you won't hold the company liable for any negative side effects including death. Which included prisoners, mentally Ill, retarded, blacks, etc all without there knowledge or consent.
To me this is another thing that will cost the Government who get's money from the American Tax payer. To me what this was is 'a blind study in science' that has benefited the world.
Cutler, who was a former deputy director of the Pan American Sanitary Bureau, a precursor of the Pan American Health Organization, had little difficulty winning Guatemalan support for the study through pledges of medicine, such as penicillin and an anti-convulsant drug for epileptics. U.S. tax dollars paid for the program. Cutler later took up a post at the University of Pittsburgh. http://www.vancouversun.com/health/apologizes abhorrent Guatemala syphilis study/3610247/story.html#ixzz11B7T3j63
