Chemical warfare experiments.
The Edgewood-Aberdeen experiments involved at least 6,700 "soldier volunteers" exposed to more than 250 different agents. The agents tested involved about half a dozen pharmacological classes, including common approved pharmaceuticals, nerve agents, nerve agent antidotes, psychoactive compounds and irritants such as tear gases. Although records are poor and often incomplete, some veterans were exposed only to placebos such as saline, or other common substances such as alcohol or caffeine.
