US Army secretly sprayed St-Louis with radioactive dust for years in the 50′& 60′

We’ve all heard of tin-foil hatters spreading conspiracy theories about an entity called “the man” wanting to screw over “the people” in order to gain personal wealth. In this case though, Professor Lisa Martino-Taylor, a sociologist at St. Louis Community College, is the one pushing the allegations. She is not an aluminum hat wearing coo-coo, and she has evidence to back her claims up.

The army of course is swearing that all they sprayed was a harmless zinc compound, however Professor Lisa claims that some radioactive Cadmium Sulfides were added to the spray in the 1953-54 and 1963-65 period, and may have affected thousands of innocent citizens.

The army told people that they were testing some secretive smoke screen to use in the eventuality of a Russian attack. Professor Martino-Taylor, exposes documents in her research, that shows the highest concentration of radioactive particles was found in a Saint-Louis building called the Pruitt-Igoe housing complex, where over 10.000 people, mostly low-income, stayed and which was composed of 70% children under 12 years old.

The Army has admitted that it added a fluorescent substance to the ‘harmless’ compound, but whether or not the additive was radioactive remains classified.

Hey, I’m all for glow in the dark smoke screens to be used against the Russians, or in current times against terrorists, but there’s fluorescent, and there’s radioactive. A difference must be made between the two, haven’t we learned anything from madame Curie and Fox Molder?
