Undue Riskis an unprecedented and chilling history of the use of human subjects in atomic, biological and chemical warfare experiments by the U.S. government from World War II to the present. Jonathan Moreno, a senior researcher on the president's special commission, goes where few researchers have gone before, exploring secret government documents which reveal a plethora of government experiments. He exposes startling details of experiments like those involving the exposure of soldiers to atomic blast fallout and secret LSD and mescaline experiments. From the courtrooms of Nuremberg to the battlefields of the Gulf War,Undue Riskexposes a variety of government policies and specific cases, including plutonium injections to unwilling hospital patients, and even the attempted recruitment of Nazi medical scientists by the U.S. government after World War II. New to the paperback edition, this exciting read covers recent objections by U.S. military personnel to required anthrax vaccinationsand new developments in government policies on experiments involving vulnerable human subjects.

He has been a senior staff member for two presidential commissions and an advisor to the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, the National Institutes of Health, the Department of Health and Human Services, the National Academy of Sciences, and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. Moreno is past president of the American Society for Bioethics and Humanities. He lives in Washington, D.C.
