Soldiers As Guinea Pigs

Not unlike the experimentation in the 1960's with agent orange (New Brunswick), soldiers who volunteered for their nations defense are being used as involuntary guinea pigs for medical research. The results of the former experiments were painful deaths and fatal long term illness. Wonder if this is being used on Canadian 'volunteers' as well.
