The National Institutes of Health is allegedly spending $16 million in taxpayer money on horrifying experiments where doctors “cripple monkeys with toxic brain injections.”
A disturbing report from the White Coat Waste Project has exposed cruel and inhumane monkey experiments funded by the National Institutes of Health.
According to the report, “WCW has filed a complaint with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) after uncovering cost disclosure violations by all seven National Primate Research Centers (NPRCs), the nation’s largest taxpayer-funded monkey labs imprisoning a combined 22,000 primates and receiving more than $100 million annually.”
Some of the experiments done by the NIH-funded NPRC’s involve:
- Turning monkeys into “binge-drinker” alcoholics (Oregon NPRC);
- Surgically-inducing heart attacks in monkeys (Washington NPRC);
- Exposing monkeys to biological weapons (Tulane NPRC);
- Intentionally threatening monkeys to cause fear and anxiety (California NPRC);
- Psychologically tormenting baboons (Southwest NPRC);
- Drilling into monkeys’ skulls and injecting them with the ADHD-drug Ritalin (Wisconsin NPRC); and
- Drilling to monkeys’ skulls and injected toxins to destroy their brains and cripple their limbs (Yerkes NPRC)
The organization unearthed a video from Emory University’s Yerkes National Primate Research Center, detailing how monkeys are locked alone in small cages where they have holes drilled into their skulls. After the holes are drilled, doctors reportedly screw in metal head restraining devices, implant electrodes and inject toxins into the monkey’s brains.
The toxic brain injections reportedly “destroy monkey’s brains and cause them to lose control of their limbs, mouths, and other body parts.”
