Stuff Like This is What Ruins Science's Reputation
So, I just saw a news story that showed that the U.S. Public Health Services intentionally infected Guatamallans with STDs 60 years ago. Stuff like this just fuels the Anti-science crowd who are convinced that science is out to get them. Now I know it happened 60 years ago, but the fact is that this will just be used as more evidence that scientists NOW can't be trusted.
