#55 Bad Blood



Science has come a long way and has allowed humans to discover new diseases as well as cures for these diseases. Often it has often been, shall we say,  not so forthcoming with what or how it practiced but even worse, it lied. It lied to those who had already suffered so much in American History. This is the story of how ignorance and blatant racism affected an unknown amount of people all without them even realizing they were being used a medical guinea pigs who would pay with their life.
