40. Israeli physician blows whistle on illegal experiments - TT
A leading Israeli doctor and medical ethicist has called for the prosecution of doctors responsible for thousands of unauthorized and often illegal experiments on small children and geriatric and psychiatric patients in Israeli hospitals.

An investigation by the government watchdog, the state comptroller, has revealed that researchers in 10 public hospitals administered drugs, carried out unauthorized genetic testing or undertook painful surgery on patients who were unable to give informed consent or without first obtaining health ministry approval.

At one hospital, staff pierced children's eardrums to apply an experimental medication that was yet to be approved in any other country.
