Justifying Evil; Cornelius P. Rhoades

Updated on June 28, 2013

A Gringo who moved to Puerto Rico, Greg loves writing about the island he now resides on. He and Maria also wrote several bilingual books...

Have you ever wondered how scientists and doctors develop and invent cures and treatments for disease? I have and my studies have found some very unscrupulous practices. Not all studies can be on rats so some of these people have used guinea pigs. Not real guinea pigs but actual humans as guinea pigs.

My idea is to do a series of hubs delving into the people who have had the power and the means to accomplish these evil practices. As I now live in Puerto Rico, I will start with a doctor who committed some very evil acts on Puerto Rican people and got away with it.

No one actually knows how many people were killed because of this man and his mission; no one knows who all is still affected by his evil thoughts and ideas.

This hub will show not some, but a lot of evil. Please take care in reading.

In The Fight Against Cancer

Cornelius Rhoads was an American doctor who studied cancer. He was born in 1898 and died in 1959. As you can see from the photograph, he was on the cover of Time magazine.

Rhoads worked for The Rockefeller Institute of Medical Technology. He was working in Puerto Rico doing testing. Much of his work was secretive. It was until the following letter he wrote became public.

“The Puerto Ricans are the dirtiest, laziest, most dangerous and thievish race of men ever inhabiting this sphere… I have done my best to further the process of extermination by killing off eight and transplanting cancer into several more… All physicians take delight in the abuse and torture of the unfortunate subjects.” –-Dr. Cornelius P. Rhoads

It became known he had been infecting Puerto Ricans people with cancer.

So he got punished and went to prison right?

No way, he had an award named after him. He was put in charge of the Sloan-Kettering Clinic where other physicians learned from him.

He was head over a couple different atomic projects and became a consultant to the United States Atomic Commission and finally because of outcry, the award with Rhoads name on it had a name change.

This is a disgrace to the American people. No one has ever apologized and no one knows how this cancer research by Rhoads has affected life here in Puerto Rico.

This was a cover-up in the name of cancer research. Rhoads essentially told on himself and he should have been punished. No, he was patted on the back instead.

What is very disturbing to me is while Rhoads was with the Atomic Commission, the man who made Rhoads letter public, Pedro Albizu-Campos was jailed and died not long after. It is claimed that Campos was tortured using atomic radiation. Sounds to me like Cornelius Rhoads committed another murder on another Puerto Rican and got away with it.

The United States government owes many apologies; as an American citizen, I ask forgiveness from the Puerto Rican people. Please know that all Americans are not this way and in all actuality, they have probably used us in some testing too. I will be studying.

I will be writing more justifying evil hubs.

Want to know more about Rhoads and the evil he committed? Follow the links below.

May cancer be stopped but please don't use humans to find the cure.

      Not since the twisted tales of "Dr." Josef Mengele have I read an account so abrasive as this. Be careful, my friend. God give you divine protection as you delve into this darkness, and thank you for lighting a candle to illuminate it!
