This is an image of one of the patients being "treated" Scientists had no reason to conduct this study except wanting to know what would happen when you left syphillis untreated. This is front page news from July 25, 1972. Jean Heller wrote article about a 40-year nontherapeuticexperiment called "a study" on the effects of untreated syphilis on Black men in the rural south. Unfortunately none, the only thing that came out of this was pain. 28 of the men had died directly because of syphilis, another 100 were dead of symptoms, 40 of their wives had been infected with syphilis, and 19 of their children were born with congenital syphilis The study was titled "Tuskegee Study of Untreated Syphilis in the Negro Male." This study obviously targeted black males who lived in Alabama. Scientists were testing if people with syphilis were better off without treatment because known treatments were ineffective. The scientists had no informed consent, and went on with the study without telling patients of the potential dangers. Despite penicillen being discovered in 1928 they refused to treat any of the pateints.
