5 Disturbing Experiments From The Past That Were Conducted On Children

It’s no secret that atrocities have been committed throughout history in the name of science.

The five experiments in this video throw scientific horrors from the past in shocking relief against what we deem acceptable today. What these children endured is absolutely heartbreaking.

So-called “progress” cannot be used as justification for these crimes. While the fields of psychology and psychiatry are vastly important today, it’s always good to look at how far we’ve come.
