Porton Down chemical weapons tests unethical, says report

A total of 11,000 men were exposed to mustard and nerve gas in Porton experiments between 1939 and 1989.

More than 400 military personnel were deliberately exposed to chemical weapons in government-run experiments which seriously breached ethical standards, an official report has concluded. The men were exposed to painful amounts of nerve gas and mustard gas by scientists at the Porton Down chemical warfare establishment in Wiltshire.

    I attended CBR school in Vilsek Germany where they put mustard gas on us in small amounts. I still have the scars. Big blisters came up after exposure. Do you know anyone else who was exposed in this fashion.
