Whoa! Aren't these experiments of his on human subjects (prisoners) rather controversial, even if voluntary? At least now they would be seen as such, no? Or was the disorder easily cured and not that harmful? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 12:40, 26 January 2011 (UTC)
Socially and politically unacceptable?
There's no explanation or elaboration on this phrase.
Someone should add this when they get the chance: "Dr. Joseph Goldberger, a physician in the U.S. government's Hygienic Laboratory, the predecessor of the National Institutes of Health, discovered the cause of pellagra and stepped on a number of medical toes when his research experiments showed that diet and not germs (the currently held medical theory) caused the disease. He also stepped on Southern pride when he linked the poverty of Southern sharecroppers, tenant farmers, and mill workers to the deficient diet that caused pellagra."
Adding to This Page
Hi! I am planning on adding information to Joseph Goldberger's page, especially his work in pellagra and the bioethical issues with his research. Any comments or suggestions would be much appreciated. — Preceding unsigned comment added by BaiCaiXue (talk • contribs) 13:40, 14 April 2017 (UTC)
